hello guys! just want to ask, for K1 petition..when you booked your ticket is it one way or round trip? i'm confused...and is the visa required when you booked a ticket?

Hey! You can book whichever is cheaper! Usually this is a round trip but I was lucky enough to get a 1 way for an okay price. If you get a round trip and they ask why, just tell them the truth...IT WAS CHEAPER! They probably hear it all the time.

You only need your visa at POE not to book the flight.

You don't want to book anything until you have the visa stamped in your passport. Once that happens, whichever is cheaper is the way to go. If you happen to hget a RT, make sure you cancel the return once you future spouse arrives.

Wait for the Visa, then book your flight. One way or round trip, either one that is the best price range for you. You can find alot of cheap flights online, and booking a flight on a Tuesday or Wednesday will save you money also. Good Luck :)

If you're a first time immigrant, you can get discounted tickets through many airlines. Some people here on VJ have used this site when traveling from the Philippines: My link Hope it helps! :)

Cancel? Have you read some of the posts... Seems many are ready to ship their spouse or fiancee right back home!!! Question remains 1 week RT, 89 day RT, or 1 year RT... get the 1 year and then you re-book sooner if needed. :o (and everyone saying to themselves, this won't happen to us... But check out the change in family forums :wow: ) :help:

Yes, been reading them. I guess I'm the ultimate optimist: I bought a one way only.

Also, I see it as people who are good do not post that they are good; but yes, might be more prudent to wait as long as possible before cancelling. Yet cancelling is important, you don't want USCIS to think that you are not intending to stay.

that's not why you cancel it. You cancel it because some people have had their AOS denied because the airlines don't update the manifest and even though you DON'T fly they have you listed as a passenger and in a lot of cases the return flights are before AP is approved. So I too suggest cancelling it and instead just having extra case for a flight home in case you're one of the sad stories.
