my fiancee and i have finally gotten thru the hard part and she got accepted to come to the usa to marry me.. she recieved her k1 visa recently and we are at the point where she will buy her plane ticket to come marry me this summer :) im sure many others have gone thru this step where they worry bout if its ok to purchase a round trip ticket or a 1 way ticket.. we noticed while searching for a ticket that there was one that had a return trip 3 weeks from the time of arrival in usa and a bit cheaper then if we booked the return flight part later in the yr say september or october . so my question is it ok to book this round trip ticket if she is coming to live here and not return back at all and not use the other part of the flight ticket.. and is that flight itenary of 3 weeks to soon to where it looks suspicious or anything? all opinions/advice is welcomed thank u for reading my post and for helping us :)

It is fairly common when you buy the round trip ticket that it is cheaper than the one way ticket. Just buy the round trip ticket and get a print out of the price of the one way ticket. If questioned explain the situation and show the price print out.

People buy round trip all the time because it is cheaper.Buy the cheaper round trip and just cancel the return ticket when she arrives in the USA. Make very sure you cancel the return ticket.

I wouldn't even worry about the one-way ticket vs. round-trip. K-1 is technically a non-immigrant visa, and K-1 visa holders are not actually required to stay in the U.S. They can come, get married, and leave if they want to. Or, they can come, get married, adjust status, get advance parole, and then leave and come back if they want to. I wouldn't even try to explain this to the border agent. They won't ask and it's not worth the confusion.
