Nope

Sure they can try. No guarantee, no fraud as long as they return within the expiration period.

It wont be an issue. Your fiance is free to apply for a tourist visa. But since your fiancee already has the intent to migrate, it might be a very very slim chance of getting a tourist visa approved. If you dont mind spending extra on it, go right ahead. Hoping for the best!

Thanks for the response I called uscis and they said it would not be an issue as long as we mention it when arriving at us customs and as long he returns within the allocated time period. So in case anyone else is curious about this topic.

Yeah you can apply for sure. There's a topic on here about it that says "Yes you can visit!" The problem some people have is proving that they will not stay on the visitor visa. But if you bring enough evidence and have a return ticket when you get to US, you should be fine.

There have been thousands of posts on this subject, the issue usually is getting a visa if you need one and do not have one.

USCIS does not issue the travel visa. This is done at the local embassy and will be up to them. I have not seen any travel visas issuesed to VJers from JA while going through this process...

I know they do not issue the travel visa I was calling them to determine if it would conflict with the k1 application process in terms of fraud, that was my only concern I didn't want there to be a red flag

No asking for a tourist visa while a K-1 is processing is not fraud.
