Fiance and tourism Visa

19 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey there!

My fiancee and I have known each other for about five years now. We failed our K1 Visa interview and I want to have her visit me on an tourist Visa. She is a few months pregnant and I cannot continue to exhaust my funds traveling to Cambodia. What are the chances of her coming to visit?

Next to nill if she states the purpose is to visit you.

If you have the money to spend on an application, and she has some strong ties to her country, there is a pretty slim chance. I would try but state the purpose of visit something more generic like tourism or shopping.

Better chance of it snowing today at 66 degrees outside. Why was the k1 denied?

Depending on why the K-1 was denied, you may be better spending your money taking a trip to see her and getting married, then doing the CR-1 visa.

But the why it was denied is definitely key here.

During the interview, the officer asked her if she realized that we had similar facial features. He pretty much insinuated that we were related and were trying to "game the game." I Went to my congressman but they couldn't do anything to further process the case. We just had a bad officer at the interview. The paperwork was an easy process. We had a plethora of evidence regarding the legitimacy of our relationship, but to no avail. (2 thousand dollars worth of calling cards, moneygram orders, pictures dating from 2010, etc.. etc...) I had never stepped foot into Cambodia until I was immobilized from the military. I never would have met my fiancee if it wasn't for my friend who insisted I visit the "motherland" The interview resulted in a a refusal worksheet marked under section 221(g) False statement.

A young pregnant woman with a fiancé in the US will not likely be given a tourist visa. Especially since she clearly has immigrant intent.

False statement? What was the false statement?

Good luck

That's rather shocking, they either insinuating you have made your relative pregnant, or being racist. I was going to suggest you have DNA tests done and certified to show you are not related, but I'm not even sure that would have overcome this officer's viewpoint :(

Yesterday it was 65f and still snow on the ground, not a lot.

I agree with the refused K1 little to no chance if chance is the word.

Have you consulted with a lawyer? Also interested in where she lied.

Question #33 on the I-129F asks if your fiance is related to you. Based on what has been said about the "similar facial features" this could have been the reason if they checked "no" and the officer thinks otherwise. Although one would think some type of blood work would need to be done for proof.

Getting married won't solve anything until they find out the exact reason for the denial and address it. They will be denied for the same reasons unless they fix what is broken. They CO seems to think they are related and stated the reason for denial is making false statements, or in other words misrepresentation.

Also as Teddy stated, a DNA test could easily rule in or out being related. Being denied simply because you have similar facial features seemed far fetched and it seems from the denial letter she lied about something. Did they tell you what they think she lied about? Misrepresentation is serious.

Glad you agree....I was clear that it was very dependent on why the K-1 was denied. And it was before anything was mentioned about misrepresentation.

I think we all agree that without knowing what was deemed as misrepresentation, no one can offer any solid advice for next steps.
