Extended Visit Question

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok, got a weird one for you all. ;)



I am currently on an extended trip to my fiance here in England (since May 24th). We are hoping to fly back to my home state (Minnesota) on October 28th, and the plan is for him to come with me, and wait out the time until his interview there (we want him to meet my family and enjoy the holidays). We have a little ways to go, having just turned in our first RFE (they lost a page of my I-129F). I am wondering if anyone has:


1. Stayed as a visitor for almost the full 3 months? We wouldn't push the whole 90 days, but maybe 80 or so? We want to cover Thanksgiving, Christmas, and his birthday (which if he leaves the day after that, would be 80 haha). He turned in his resignation to work today, and we have plenty of money saved up for his entry and stay.


2. Gone through customs together? I have only ever gone through customs by myself (through US from Mexico and Germany, and then into Mexico, Germany, and England). We are not a household yet, but can we go to the same booth? If not it doesn't change much, would just ease my mind. Our POE would be MSP, and from what I have heard they are very understanding (all that Minnesota nice!)



Thanks guys! Any tips or advice would be appreciated.

I visited for 80 odd days, many have.

Customs, well from memory you fill out one form per head of household. Just hand it over as you walk past, never been to a booth.

1) Just make sure he has proof of home ties to his country and how he will finance the trip

2) You would go to a US Citizens booth and he would go to the Visitor booth or thats how me and my Fianceé did it.

Kind regards,

Thanks you guys!

We have proof of finance, and a return ticket. Since we are preparing for his move, we are giving up the house before we go, and he will be staying with his parents when he comes back for his interview. I hope that isn't a problem, I did the same coming over here (but I feel UK was a lot more lax about entry than US).
