Entry in to the US on K1 visa

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiancé and her sister have both been granted K1 visa. Therefore, we were thinking to have them travel with each other until they arrive in the US, so they can go through the travel hassles together. Is there any problem with not arriving in the city your Fiancee is located, and then traveling on the next day. So both sisters would have the same itinerary to one location, and then the other sister would travel on to her final destination. Is this an issue when entering the US on a K1 Visa?

Congratulations. There is no problem as to where they enter from. It's also best if your fiancé will be connecting, you buy a ticket with enough time in between connecting flights for her to go through immigration and baggage claim in the case that the airline she travel in will not tag her bag to her final destination. Good luck.

No issues at all. Once within the US she may do whatever she likes. To continue on the next day on a domestic flight she would need to show a valid ID to the TSA agent to be allowed into the secure area--her PI passport will work for that. If there is a connecting flight after the POE just make sure there is enough time to get thru the immigration process and Customs (baggage check) before the next flight. They will need to collect their baggage, present their Customs Declaration form, exit the international area and re-check their bag to the final destination before making their way to the gate. In some airports they would have to go thru security again, so that time needs to be factored into the layover.
