Of Course Not, You Have To Wait.I'm not pro on here but from my readings you can't get visitor visa when you have a petition visa :whistle: Just Hang In There Everything Will Be Okay.I miss my husband alot too but sacrifice is a part of love.One Day to be together always :thumbs:

Yes you can. However, it would be scrutinized very intensely. You will have to show strong ties back to your home country. Job, owning property, etc..... Because, when anyone enters, it is always considered an "intent to immigrate". Because you already have filed for a K1, there is already the premises that you are intending to immigrate here. So, can you apply for one? Absolutely. Will you be granted one? There exists the possibility. But, without the significant ties back home, it is highly unlikely.

I know of several people who have had tourist visas denied because of the existing K1. I also know some people who have visited while waiting on a K1 Visa. However, they already had their Visa with a strong history of coming and leaving with no problems prior to that.

Good Luck

You will most likely be denied a tourist visa based on the fact that you have a K1 visa petition pending. But you can still try if you want to.
