visit the US while waiting for my interview (K1)

Hi everyone,

I am currently waiting for the appointment letter from the ambassy (for a K1 visa).

As you all know, waiting with no time frame is killing me.

I read I am not supposed to go to the US during the application but I just cannot imagine spending Christmas away from my fiance (and he cannot visit me).

I read on VJ that some of you went to the US while their applications were being processed.

Do you know what the risks / implications are? I am of course planning on going back to my home country and wait until everything is approved.

Is it strictly prohibited or is not advised?

Thanks a lot in advance and good luck to everyone!

Claire

Claire,

According to the US officials in London that we spoke to, it's officially not advised, despite what people here may say. We're not applying for a K-1, though; we're applying for an IR-1.

If you want to visit the United States before your visa is processed, I would suggest contacting the US Embassy in the country you're in and asking their advice. Alternately, your fiance could visit you instead and avoid any complications down the road. We were told that if we *had* to visit the US while the app was being processed (for a family emergency, for example) we could apply for permission but otherwise my husband is to stay out of the United States until they're finished processing his visa.
