Appling for K-1 visa in US at the same time as tourist visa in Romania

I am in the process of beginning the K-1 visa application for my fiancée in Romania. If she applied for a tourist visa to the US at the same time would this hamper the K-1 visa or her chances of getting a tourist visa from Romania, which is very low? Does the Romanian government have access to information, such as my application for the K-1 visa?

Hi, I believe that since Romania isn't part of the Visa Waiver Program yet that applying for a Tourist Visa with a K-1 Visa is not recommended. You'll have to check other threads, but I believe that it is not allowed with an active K-1 petition.

As for the Romanian government knowing about your K-1 visa, i'm not sure how that would matter since you are working to get a US Visa. You will have to deal with the Romanian government regardless to get Police Checks for your fiancee and your Medical Exam, so either way you're going to be dealing with them at some point or another.

It is allowed to apply for a tourist visa with another visa category processing.

Actually being approved is another matter as the burden of proof for immigration intent will be that much higher.

If it's denied then as long as the denial is only due to the presumption of immigrant intent then it will have no effect on the K1.

or her chances of getting a tourist visa from Romania, which is very low? No

Does the Romanian government have access to information, such as my application for the K-1 visa? No, the Romanian government does not have access to US Immigration information but the US Embassy in Romania does.

Not a problem to apply for a tourist visa. Tourist visas from Romania can be difficult to get especially if she has a pending K1, so make sure she is prepared to show strong ties to Romania and proof she will return home. If she is denied the tourist visa it will not affect her K1.
