ESTA and K1 Visa application

2 posts in this topic

Filed: Timeline

My K1 Visa application is now at my local Consulate in Sydney and I have a medical scheduled for 17th April. My finacee and I are due to marry in the States on June 23rd 2012.

I just received a reminder email from cbp.dhs.gov to advise me that my current Visa waiver expires on May 6th 2012. What I would like to know is am I able to apply for a new Waiver while my K1 application is being processed. Or, if my K1 application is denied am I then able to apply for a new Visa waiver ... for travel purposes only, not with the intention of remaining in the States for more than 90 days on the waiver.

Thank you for any advice anyone can provide.

You can renew now, if you wish to travel now.

AFAIK, once refused a visa you cannot use the VWP anymore, you'd need to apply for a tourist visa. Whether you'd be granted that would depend on the reason for the K1 refusal, and how much time has passed since the refusal.
