If she enters the USA on her K-1 and then leaves to go to Europe, She will not be allowed back in the USA on the K-1 visa. It is a one time use visa.

If she enters Europe before going to the USA that is doable. She can then enter the USA from Europe on her K-1 visa.

Hello everyone,

Would it be a good idea for my fiancee, after being approved and getting a visa to come into the US to go on a vacation to Europe? Would it cause any problems for her to come into the US? She will be traveling with my self.

NO, it wouldn't be ideal. You must file for AP along with AOS immediately after your marriage and wait for its approval to be able to do so or risk been unable to come back to the U.S when you leave before then.

Note: Inky has given you the correct answer.

Yes, we were looking into the second option. To do it before coming to the US. If we do decide to enter the US first, how long does it generally take to get the temporary green card in order to be able to leave then re-enter without issues?

The GC takes many months. You would apply for AP with your AOS, this will allow her to enter the country without her GC. It takes about 3 months after filing AOS to receive it. You would need to be married before you can file AOS.

If you do it before she comes to the US, remember that the K1 visa only grants her entry to the USA, she will need a separate visa for any European countries she wishes to visit.
