Tourist Visa while in K-1 process

Hello Everyone,

I am new to posting here. I am out here frequently reading and trying to gather information in general.

My question is:

I-129F was accepted back in March. She is a citizen of Guatemala with Guatemalan Passport and resident of Belize.

Would it jeopardize anything if we try to get her a tourist visa to come to the states for a visit, that is if it would get approved? We don't want to take any chances with anything that may hinder the K-1 process.

Thanks.

Johnny

Welcome to the forum.

Go ahead and give it a try. In order to receive the visa, she will have to prove to the CO that she has compelling reasons, i.e., property, job, family ties, to go back home when her visit is over. If approved, she should be prepared by bringing documentation able to prove to the CBP officer at the POE that she will return home after the visit. This topic is frequently discussed in this forum, review numerous prior postings for more information.

Good luck on your visa journey.

Attempting to get a tourist visa will not jeopardize your pending K-1, regardless if it is approved or denied. Please keep in mind though, that your fiance(e) will have to prove they have significant ties to their home country to get a visa and to be allowed in at POE.
