one month visit ?

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

My fiance and I started the K-1 Process back in February of 2015. I'm Taiwanese and he is a US citizen. We met in Taiwan and have been together for 3 years, he left back to the United States in search of work last February and has secured a job.

We are still in stage one as our application was routed through Texas. It has almost been six months and we just have to see each other. I plan to head to the US end of August/early September for 1 month. My fiance wants me to acclimate to the area and we will look for places to live and also plan our wedding. But with the work culture in Taiwan, I'll be let go of my job if I take 2 weeks off, let alone 1 month.

Sorry as I know these visiting questions have been asked a lot, but I've never heard of anyone staying for up to 1 month. Can anyone share their experiences? What can I do to make sure I can get into the country?


- With our NOA 2 expected between now and October... If we get to our NOA 2 while i'm in the US for a month, would that be an issue?

- If we reach NOA 2 status before the trip. Can you travel to the US during the NOA 2 process.

We've waited so long to see each other and he has worked so hard in getting established back in the US. We absolutely don't want to jeopardize the K-1 process, but also its just been too damn long.

If you are coming in on ESTA/VWP, usually there is no problem at the POE as you have 90 days max in which to stay.

The sticky bit becomes, then, IF CBP can see any case status on you for the I-129F or K-1 visa application, and whether or not they decide to turn you away. There's a topic about visiting whilst chasing a K-1 visa - please take a look when able..

Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

I stayed for a couple of months at a similar point, visitors are nevr guaranteed entry but obviously most enter without issue

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
