He can if he can get a tourist visa which is unlikely if for no other reason that the petition that you filled. You have indicated his intent to immigrate.

As part of the tourist visa application he must prove he MUST return to his country. How will he do that with a wife in the USA and an immigration petition in place?

Having explained that I can say I have seen it done but never from Ghana. Try asking on the Ghana forum to try to find someone there that did it. The problem is that he will never know unless he tries.

Yeah if he doesn't already possess a tourist visa then its unlikely that he is going to be granted one now that he has demonstrated a desire to immigrate with the I130. Nothing to stop him from trying though, although it does cost $160.

It is very difficult to obtain a tourist visa at the best of times from Ghana. That has been our story anyway... everything in place and yet still denied with no explanation. This can get expensive.

We have found the best option is to visit with each other in Ghana instead. :yes: As the USA citizen it is a great way to embrace and learn about your spouse's heritage culture and country.

KofiB you are exactly right. We learned it's hard to get a visitors visa from Ghana. I enjoy going to Ghana and have been there a total of five times since 2012. When I met my fiancé in November I have been back two times. I will do what it takes to see him because distance is so hard but we pray we will not be apart for much longer.

Every visit you make helps in the pursuit of the K1. I know this is difficult because I went thru this as well. Look to the future and you will have what you want.

I wanted to have my spouse come spend part of the summer here with me in the states. we filed for a tourist visa, at the interview they simply denied her and told her to go ahead and wait for the cr1 process to finalized. It was at most a 2 min interview.

Standard procedure for Nigeria. Has nothing to do with the O P situation.
