Traveling After Receiving Visa

Our petition is currently at the NVC waiting to be sent to London. My fiance is planning a visit for the end of May for a friends wedding. If he happens to get his visa before that time would he be required to use it? Or could he just come and visit and return to London like normal without using the visa?

Once he rec's the visa, it will be activated the very next time he steps foot on US soil. It is a one time use visa. DO NOT have him come for a 'visit' once he has it. If he does, and leaves, you will have to start over again.

edit to cap for emphasis ;)

Try to get a June interview. You can stretch out your timeline a bit by not rushing everything back to London like some people do. Include a cover letter saying you would like an interview after June[date he's back] 2011 because he will be out of the country prior to that. We did that.

Great idea, thanks!

We don't plan to get married until November so there's really no reason to rush the process.

So for you I would suggest you do it the "normal" way London intends and not the shortcut way most people seek.

Wait for London to send the Packet 3 letter to him with their instructions, which are get instructions from our WEBSITE.

Send back the DS-230, DS156, DS-156k, DS-157 about 2 weeks later, which is a normal time one might take to prepare 4 forms. You want to get those in so they keep the file active and know you're still a player in the visa game.

Schedule the visa medical for a date before he comes to the US.

Take 3-4 weeks to "gather" the interview documents. (A normal time to order a police certificate, birth certificate, get passport photos, etc.) The list of what to bring to the interview is HERE.

Then send in the readiness form DS-2001 with the cover letter they ask for including the medical date, saying your wedding date is September. (Bump it up to give some padding to your desired outcome.) Include a "please may I request an interview AFTER June XX, 2011 as I will be out of the country for several weeks prior to that. That letter is explained in Step Two on your INSTRUCTION PAGE.
