No, once you have the K1 in your passport you MUST use it on your next entry into the USA.

It applies to everyone.

Yeah, it applies to anyone. If you have a K1 visa in your passport, regardless of where you are coming from, you MUST use it upon entry into the USA.

Does this apply to Canada as well? Please say no!

SOME Canadian K-1s have reported that they were allowed to cross the border without using the K-1 visa. This is at the officer's discretion and I would never count on it---it would just be a bonus extra.

Wouldn't be a good idea to expect this as going to happen though. I remember a post where someone said they were allowed to but the officer took pity on their extreme condition, but it would be a RARE case that this would happen and I certainly wouldn't expect it like I stated just now.

And they're actually not supposed to do this as the K-1 cancells any admittance via visitor status. Some may have taken pity, but it is not permitted by the INA and if the officer was caught, they could land in a heap of trouble... I would not count on it at all...

If a Canadian was caught entering the US on a BC and a DL after a K visa had been issued and if it was found out while it was attempted or after the fact, it could be seen as gaining entry by making a material misrepresentation. In this case, the K visa would be cancelled and the alien would be inadmissible.

Not worth it IMHO...

Interesting responses :)

Betcha a dollar (Candian) that if I'd posted a negative reply, I'd have had a bushel of 'oh yes you can' posts ;)

Everyone please note that my reply says that *I* would not count on doing this.

yeh i did they were great thnx. i was just confused

it seems a bit harsh, what about making wedding plans and arranging the venue and such. i mean they make u wait so long without knowing if and when it can happen so you cant plan to much. then when u can go ahead you arent allowed to enter unless its for the actual big day

You're allowed to enter whenever you want, you just can't leave. ;) You have 6 months after the visa is issued to actually use it, and then 90 days to get married.

I entered the US on Nov 1/04, and was married 6 days later. We planned and arranged a great wedding (full blown religious ceremony) -- and I only got to see the wedding/reception site 45 minutes before we got married! Having a very helpful fiance (and his mom and sister helped a lot as well) and using the internet was awesome.

We had everything planned and decided and ready so as soon as we knew a date, we had everything ready to go. Jerry also talked to the photographer/videographer and the wedding/reception site about our situation, and they were willing to be more flexible as far as booking dates were concerned.

Or, many people have had a simple civil ceremony, with a more formal ceremony with all the trimmings later. That might be another alternative for you, may save you a lot of stress. :) Do what makes you happy. :)

Well you can come in 90 days before, or, you have 90 days from entry to get married. So if you feel comfortable making wedding plans in 3 months then you can do that.
