I have lived with my US girl friend for almost a year in Turkey. She is a US citizen and we have an apartment in Turkey where we live together. She is sick and want to be treated in US because of the hospital bills in Turkey is expensive compare to US where she have insurance. She want me to be with her in the US during her surgery in the hospital. Is there any chance i will get a visa to be with her for few months over there? I have a good bank account and also studying in University in Turkey. Is this a strong tie to Turkey? Pls i need your advice. Thanks

Proof of ownership of your apartment would be good evidence

As a Nigerian citizen you will have a tougher time obtaining a visitor visa. A sick girlfriend won't help your application.

No one here can say what the real outcome will be if you submit the forms for a tourist visa. Turkey can be very difficult in the best of times.

To be granted a visa you must PROVE beyond a doubt you MUST return. Your bank account can be moved easily. You could attend school in the USA. You can rent an apartment anywhere. Your USC G F returning to the USA with you to help her looks a lot like you have every reason to stay.

Keep in mind all people with visas are considered intending immigrants by USCIS. You must overcome that concept when you apply. Most of these cases are decided before you ever get to the window to speak to anyone so do the best you can when you fill out the forms to present your case.

Two weeks ago, you were asking VJ'ers about the process of applying for a K1 visa.

Now you are asking for advice about a tourist visa, so you can be with your girlfriend (note the reduced status from fiancee) as she undergoes an operation.

If your intent is to travel to the U.S. and marry your fiancee, then K1 is the route to take.

I'm sure you've heard over the last 2 weeks, that K1 is a slow, expensive process. Well it is. And that may have encouraged you to think of ways to get round the wait. But immigration officials aren't stupid - if they even think you are trying to play them, you'll lose. The K1 process isn't easy. But it's worth it.

Thanks for your replies. Me and my gf have gotten all documents to marry in turkey and reside here but now she is sick and needs medical attention. You mean they can't allow me to be with her for few months until she is fine? I have proof of all documents we got from Turkish government even a signature from the state governor for our marriage in Turkey. I want to be prepared before i apply for this.

I am not trying to fool the immigration. During my stay we will not get married. I will return to Turkey after my day. Also we have got all the documents to file for spouse visa as we will getting married in Turkey. We want our marriage to last for at least six months before we apply for spouse visa.

If you marry her there is zero chance of getting a tourist visa. Your proof in those docs will also serve to cause your tourist visa to be denied.

Could they allow you to have a visa? Yes but they wont.

I am sure she needs medical attention but unless you are a specialist in her condition you wont be with her if she seeks that attention in the USA. From what you say it seems she would be better off getting help in Turkey. The stress of all of this may make it very difficult for her anyway.

What did you mean when you say 'but unless you are a specialist in her condition you wont be with her'? In other words i can be with my fiancee because am not a doctor. The reason she want me there is because she can't do without me. I remember when she was in the hospital in Turkey she refuse to be treated until i arrived. I need good advice and not discouragements from people. Getting US visa is hard but people get it right? So i can also.

You are being given good advice, even though it is discouraging.

You can try for a tourist visa, but the chances you will get it are slim.

owning property, having a great job, having lots of immediate family there. generally things that show you have a reason for returning home...

being student with no job and just renting apartment is not best scenario for strong ties. anyways apply for the visa and then you will know if you will get it.

Discouragements? If you are discouaged by the facts now I cant imagine your emotional state when you step up to the window.

You keep trying to explain your situation by pointing to her medical needs. That doesnt matter to the embassy at all. She doesnt need a visa. You do. That wont happen unless you can express YOUR ties to Turkey. If you cant do it how can anyone here? Your situation is unique which means what others did wont really help you. If you even get the chance to explain that you want to go with your USC G F they will deny the visa. For example; she has no means of support while she is in the hospital. Neither do you. You cant work in the USA. You are a student as you say. You arent married to her so you have no way to AOS.

Getting a visa IS hard. Yes and many of us went thru a lot to get here. You can do it too but with the right understanding, attitude and circumstance.

Good advise? Pay the fee, step up to the window.

Do you want honest advice or do you want people to tell you what you want to hear?
