Moving this to Tourist Visa forum..

Parents would need to apply for a B-2 visitors visa, and will need to provide evidence of strong ties to the home country.

May be too late now but sounds like you would have been better getting married before moving to the US.

Yep doing that now would get the K-1 tossed and starting over with a spouse visa petition.

Unless from a visa waiver country planning on having non US family at a wedding in USA can be complicated.

In our case we had a big engagement party in China for family before coming to USA on K-1

some countries it is very hard to get a visa for any reason. The parents can apply but there is nothing you can do other than provide an invitation to the wedding. They must show that they MUST return after and show why. This could be owning a business or having property or having family they have to come back to .


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

I would suggest having a legal ceremony when you arrive in the USA, or have an American Wedding, then on your next visit home with your new spouse, plan a wedding in your home country that family can attend. For some this is unfortunately the only option. Some people stuck with this issue have a really nice videographer at their wedding in America and record the event, and make copies for family at home. Then celebrate at home after you are married, or prior to coming even, as suggested above. Unfortunately with this process there isn't a lot one can do to have their special day on their own terms :( But it is about your love for each other, so although it is nice to have family in attendance, it is really about the two of you.

My fiance and I are going to have a legal ceremony (nobody is coming to that but his parents as witnesses) and then we will plan a spiritual ceremony for the future.

Hi

You need to estimate the time that do you think you will enter in usa ( with a k-1 visa) + 90 days ( máximum ) and in the other hand how long it takes to find a b2 visa in your country If those dates are very close then you have a chance otherwise it is so difficult to reach.

Of course do you have to take in account that obtaining a b2 visa is more a matter of luck than any other thing.
