Committment/Engagement Ring

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

my fiance and i both have committment rings, they are identical and look like wedding bands.

someone told me that because they look like wedding bands but we are applying for a fiance visa, we

should take them off so that the embassy doesn't think we actually got married.....

is that true? should we take them off, or will this serve as proof of committment????

There has been denials when the CO thinks that the couple is married. Keep your case simple and easy to approve. If you think they 'look like wedding bands' then leave them at home and show other proof of commitment

Good luck

It is widely believed that there are cameras monitoring couples in the waiting area of the Embassy. Also, the officers there do watch and are trained to observe the couples for evidence of a "real" relationship. If the rings do look like wedding rings, and other people are telling you that, then you shouldn't wear them to the interview. You don't want them to question you and/or cast any doubt on your case. Any "red flags" and your case can be denied. I wouldn't take that risk. In my opinion, the fiancée should only wear her ring.

My fiancee and I have matching stainless steel pendants with a photo of the two of us laser etched into the surface of them (same pic as our profile pic :)

Perhaps if you wan't to use a piece of jewelery to show togetherness, something like that could work for you and be a much safer bet than a ring that could be confused as being a wedding ring? Have to agree with the other posters,the risk of a CO deciding the rings are wedding rings and denying you just isn't worth the risk.

You could send an e-mail to the embassy asking this question. They'll likely tell you it's a non-issue, but this can vary embassy to embassy. If it's important to you to wear them, and no one should judge, send an e-mail to the embassy asking this very question.
