Hi,

I will be heading back to VietNam to marry my Fiance in Oct.

I was wondering what kind of paper work I should start to prepare now and have everything reading when I m back in VietNam?

I also heard that you need an approval letter saying that you are single before getting a marriage license in Vietnam. How can I get one in the US?

Thank you ahead of time..

I m new to this forum so not much info about me yet..

This is a repost from other forum section.

Hey ! Welcome to VJ !!

You might not be aware, but mostly - the K-3 is not a viable option anymore -

please read these links?

Comparison on K-3 vs CR-1 - http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/204324-wondering-if-i-made-a-mistake-marrying-in-us/page__view__findpost__p__3060767

K-3 administratively closed - http://www.visajourney.com/news/2010/02/07/department-of-state-to-close-k-3-visas-if-i-129f-and-i-130-petitions-approved-and-received-together/

Not sure what to tell you about the 'grand marriage' bits in Vietnam, though - but there IS a Vietnam forum at http://www.visajourney.com/forums/forum/136-vietnam/ - you might want to check it out, get some understanding about 'getting married in Vietnam'

Good Luck !

Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

Just to verify....the K-3 visa is no longer available and the IR-1/CR-1 should be pursued instead????

Yep they are closing the I-129F at NVC now when filed with I-130. Go IR-1/CR-1. It's a better visa anyway.

Done for 3 years or 10 years. Haven't decided yet.

(I'm going for the IR-1 and blowing off the K-3. Even if it takes an extra couple months, it's worth it to not have to deal with USCIS again)

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Note:

Please fill out I-130, wait 6 months for approval, then 3 more months for an interview. (Unless of course we've bombed your country into the stone age, then you qualify for expedited processing.)

Welcome to the USA!!!

I think you should make a personal decision, after reading those two links. IMO, 'which Visa to pursue' MUST be a personal decision, albeit laced with facts.

It's OK to click these links, they are safe to click, no malware gets installed on your computer, when you click those links - I SWEAR !!
