Travel with K-1 Visa

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: AOS (pnd) Country: Honduras
Timeline

After my fiancee has her K-1 approved, we will goto the US and immediately (like the week we arrive) get married and send in the next stage of paperwork. But I want to know about her restrictions (if any) about traveling back and forth from the US and Honduras. I think the K-1 is a single-entry VISA, but family situations require us to go back to Honduras for a while soon after we marry (within a couple weeks). Will she be able to travel back and forth after we are married? Are there additional forms we need to complete in order for her to be able to come and go between the US and Honduras? She will not be working in either country - but she is the primary caregiver for her three year old nephew and we can not be away from Honduras for any longer than required.

Thanks in advance for advice and experience.

Once she enters on the K1 visa she will not be able to leave the country without having AP. In order to get AP you must file for the AOS. Once you have the receipt you can make an info pass appointment and they will determine if they are able to issue advance parole as an emergency. DO NOT let her leave the U.S. without the AP or you will have to start the process over under a CR1.

She cannot leave the country and come back until after you marry, file for AOS, and receive her travel permission. That will take at least 2 months after you file for AOS. There is no way around it. If travel immediately was a concern, then you should have married and filed for a spousal visa. I am sorry, there is no way to speed this up. She can leave but she won't come back any time soon. Good luck.
