I have a question-

My fiance takes a few classes in Morocco but doesn't work, and never has (how lucky) and I keep thinking that maybe he should work first of all to make some money for when he gets here, second of all, to pass the time, and third of all because it may look better to the consulate if he has worked even just a little bit and is able to hold a job. What does everyone think? I told him that it might be a good idea to find something small, even part time just to make some money but he always says no no I don't think that matters. Let me know.

You should post in the ME/NA Forum for more detailed responses.

As for your question...I think it depends. We had no problems getting the K1, and my husband was not working in Morocco at the time since he just moved back from Europe to complete the visa application process.

However, if you are in the situation where you happen to be significantly older than your fiance, which in my opinion has been causing difficulties at the Casablanca consulate, then perhaps a job for your fiance wouldn't be a bad idea. It would at least show that he's not completely dependent on you for support, which might alleviate concern of visa fraud, which has been common in Casablanca these days.

Hi working history in Morrocco should have absolutely no bearing on him being granted or denied a visa at the Embassy interview. The Embassy is only interested in the employment history of the USC.

From a practical point of view however, it would be a good idea (unless you earn big bucks in the US) for him to bring some money with him when he arrives here. It will be several months before he'll be able to work in the US and any extra money he can bring with him will help you guys until he's able to work legally in the US. If he can get a job and put some money aside before he leaves Morrocco, that would be great.

Thanks! I will post it there. Hicham is 2 years younger than I am so I hope that's not too significant.

Sarah

Oh dear. Now Hicham is telling me that his Dad will provide for him until he can work. What do I say to that? I think it would help him and give him a sense of responsibility and independence if he works and can bring some money with him- I don' tell him that but I think it. What should I do?

No, I don't think that small of an age difference will be a problem.

What you've said is theoretically true. But I would be careful about making these sorts of broad statements when the OP asked about Morocco specifically. The consulate in Casablanca is an entirely different animal, and there are factors that enter into decisions there that may not be standard practice.

That sounds like more of a relationship issue than a visa issue.

I don't know about it mattering for the visa but I would say that working to get money certainly would not hurt and having a work history always helps when getting another job (like in the US). This process is costly so some extra dough always helps :)
