K1 - What To Expect At The POE

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

Leaving for Houston with my K1 visa in a week! Excited, sad, nervous, happy. Just wondering if you had any last minute tips or advice for me.

I don't know what to expect at the POE. Can someone tell me what exactly happens at the POE, how long does it take to get the whole process done. My flight is at 7 am so I guess I should be there very early in the morning.

I'm panicking a little and can't tell if I'm missing any items that I'm required to bring with me, other than my passport and the package that came with the passport. When I fill out the customs form do I check resident or visitor.. can't believe it's time to move!

Thanks so much you guys. Really appreciate your help.

Melisandre....Don't stress! Relax

My now wife came through Houston with myself and her 2 girls. Very easy process for them. We were all escorted to a room where they were admitted and I had to wait outside. They take your packet of information...ask some interview like questions and that is pretty much it. You should have no issues...my family spoke limited to no english! I would not be nervous...enjoy the ride of K-1
