Can my fiance visit USA for Thanksgiving?

Technically yes, but as Harsh_77 mentioned she may be seen as trying to immigrate, so she'll need to prove she has adequate 'ties' in Canada.

That could be seen as property, pets, employment etc.

Best of luck to you good.gif

Yes, she can visit you. She will need to bring with her proof of her ties to Canada so that US border services will know that she is not intending to remain in the US on this visit. Having a return ticket and a specified period of time for the visit, having a need to return to Canada such as work or school and having documents that prove it; having copy of a lease or mortgage and ongoing bills that she is paying in Canada will all make it easier for the border authorities to let her in. At the POE (immigration will be at the airport prior to her flight) she should say she is going to XXX city to visit her fiance and his family for Thanksgiving and will be returning on xxx date, and have her documents with her. She should also bring a copy of what ever paperwork you have for the K-1, especially the first receipt as that shows she knows the proper process and is following it.

I travelled back and forth quite regularly during my K-1 process. I was sent to secondary inspection twice but each time as the guards were going through my folder of my proof of ties, when they got to the K-1 paperwork, they closed the folder, handed it back to me and said I was good to go.
