Muslim Middle East tradition and K1

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiancee is from Kuwait and I have traveled 4 times to see her in less than a year. In some Muslim/Mideast cultures you aren't allowed to meet that much before wedding. Can CO raise a question as to why we met so many times? We have always met with family present and went out together to public places like malls, dinner, etc. But still I like to know from those who have been through K1 in mideast countries whether it's looked at as favorably or not so much?

The K1 requires you and your fiancée to have met in the last two years before filing.

The US does consider how much of a relationship you two have.

While local customs are considered, you are pursuing a US immigration visa which requires you two to have a relationship. The more evidence of a relationship, the better the chances of getting the visa.
