traveling with k-1

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance got approved for a k-1, she hasn't entered the u.s as of yet. She live in india & i plan to go pick her her up & return to the u.s in feb2012. Her visa is valid for 6 months still.

Question: we want to go on a vacation to thailand before coming back to the u.s which would require both o us getting a tourist visa. Would that cause any problems during our aos down the road ? would they think we went on a honeymoon or something ? because of the recent flooding the deals are real good & being i'm from the U.s i don't get to travel to that part of the often or is it best to no go there.? Any thoughts? just don't unnecessary questioning at time of interview?

You should have no problems traveling prior to your fiance entering the USA to activate her K-1. Many couples travel prior to the non-USC entering the USA...

As far as "unnecessary questioning at the interview", I assume you are asking about your AOS interview after you are married? Travel prior to entering the USA won't be an issue for that interview.

Have fun and a pleasant trip.
