Here is our situation my girlfriend and I met in the summer of 2012 she was here in US on a J1 visa after the summer she left we got much closer... skype everyday for hours. the following May she applied for another J1 visa this time she got denied the consulate said she had graduated university and her ties to her country are not strong enough. She got a job we waited 6 months to apply for a tourist visa (B1) i sent an invitaton letter and so this past week she goes for her interview and again she is denied saying again not strong enough ties to Moldova. We know we want to get married so we were planning to do a K1 visa, We have heard though that because she has 2 different visa refusals on her passport if she tries for a 3rd different visa (J1 then B1 and now K1) she will for sure get refused DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THAT IS ACCURATE? What to do we do moving forward? if i could go there now and spend enough time to get married and do a k3 visa i would it just wouldnt be possible for me to go there for at least 4 months if not more and would really like to get things moving along. I had no idea would be so hard be with the one person in this world that I love and makes me truly happy.

Thanks in advance

I'm just thinking logically here...

The earlier two visa could be denied because "she didn't have strong ties back to Moldova"

...regardless of you guys' motivation for applying for those visas.

But with K1, now you have something more bona fide. You are trying to marry her.

If you can prove that your relationship and marriage plan is real and can demonstrate with facts,

I think she can overcome the previous rejects.

USCIS intention is find fraud filing. I'm sure they will happily grant the visa to a real couple.

You might have to provide more solid evidence than others, but I think you can overcome them.

Tourist and work visa approvals and denials have no impact on an immigration visa. While the K1 is technically a non-immigrant visa, it has immigrant intent. She will have no trouble because of the past visa denials and likely it just reaffirms the embassy's decision they made the right call because she is now trying to immigrate.

My chinese wife also applied for a tourist visa.This is before we met. A tourist visa is rarely awarded to a single chinese woman. You need to prove that you own property and have a good stable job and many family ties. This is a non issue when it comes to K-1. that she applied for a tourist visa in the past.

We got approved luckily in US Embassy in Moldova the first time I applied for B-2 visa to visit my boyfriend in the US (prior to filing I-129F) and got denied the second time when we filed for I-129F (as I sincerely stated that our K-1 was in process), so the chances are 50/50. My second denial didn't affect K-1, so...don't worry, as soon as all the paperwork is filled out correctly and you prove your bonafide relationship, she will easily obtain her K-1 visa from US Embassy in Moldova.

Hi! Don't be worried about your situation. it won't affect her visa IF you have true relationships. we had my interview ( i said " we " because my husband was there too) and it was just great. they were very polite and helpful. you should know when the interviewee arrives there they have already the decision. the interview lasts .....10 minutes and it is impossible to make the decision about the case. so be prepared that they will review your case thoroughly before the interview which is understandable.she will be asked about previous visas and she will have to explain very clearly and just be very honest. that is it! if you have any questions about the process please do not hesitate to write me and i will share my experience . i wish you good luck and am sure everything will be just fine with you!
