K-1 Visa Question

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am from Canada and my Finace is from the United States and we have been discussing where we would like to have our wedding. And we have decided that we would really like to do a destination wedding (if we can), most likely in Hawaii. What we would like to know is if we want a destination wedding do we still apply for the K-1 Fiance Visa and would this visa allow us to get married in Hawaii even though he is from another state? Or do we have to get married in the state that he is from?

You can get married in any state, but you need to check with the state of Hawaii and see what their requirements are for obtaining a marriage license. Some states have a mandatory waiting period, such as 1 or 3 days after the license is issued that you must wait before the marriage can be performed, but again this is something you need to check with the state of Hawaii. Good luck!!!
