Ties to country when visiting

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Kyrgyzstan

I hope that this is not a completely ridiculous question. I know that it is difficult for the beneficiary to visit the US during the K1 application process and that if they try that they have to prove very strong ties to their country, but is this true at all the other way around? I know it wouldn't make much sense considering that we are applying to bring them to the U.S., but perhaps there is a fear of overstaying if there is a fiance involved? I ask because I am planning on visiting my fiance soon and I'm terrified that there would be some reason to get turned back at the airport after a 24h+ journey.

Thank you!

; So, from what I understood. You want to visit your fiance in the US? :innocent:

If so,

Not every officer at POE will give you a hard time. Some are lucky with just the question given "who are you going to visit, and for how long". Others may have a more difficult time during this process. It's all about being well prepared!!

I'm currently waiting for my NOA2, and I visit my (L) every two months. I take the following documents with me:

* Copy of the I-129f package (additional)

* Copy of NOA1 (+NOA2, if you received one and they know you are working on this legally)

* A letter from your employer, stating that he approves your holiday request and when he/she expect you back for work(company letter head), dated&signed by your employer.

* Salary specifications from the past 3 or so months, so that also proves that 1). you have a job in your home country and 2). You can support yourself while you're there.

* A return ticket to you home country

* Contracts such as car insurance, house mortage (if you own your own house/car).

& most of all. Be honest :innocent:

That's all, and enjoy your stay with your fiance :rolleyes:
