Approved For B2 Visa Submitting K-1 VIsa

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So my fiancee got approved for a B2 tourist visit this week. She is a Russian citizen. I want her to come in October for 3-4 months to stay with me at my home, but don't want her to to have any problems during the K-1 visa process. I have done a K-1 Visa in the past so I am familiar with the process.

At the B2 Tourist visa interview they never asked her how long she would come for or anything, just who she was traveling with. She will come with her mother, however her mom will leave after 2 weeks. I'm turning 25 and she's turning 23 so we are both relatively young, very happy she was approved! Legally I know you can stay up to 180 days on a B2 visa within a 365 day period, but just don't want to have any problems at port of entry or when we submit the K-1 papers when she is here. We plan on putting on the I129F that she is currently in the US and will be for 90-120 days. Just wondering what she should tell the officer at port of entry as I don't want them to send her home. I was planning on purchasing a ticket and just changing the return flight later. Anyone with ideas or suggestions this would be greatly appreciated!

Her length of stay is not determined by you. Although you want 180 days, it may not be granted. If you arrive with a return ticket, the CBP my issue her return date to match that date thus not allowing you to change the return date.

Why would you do that? Doesn't that seem deceptive to you?

Telling the officer and demonstrating her ties to Russia will help.

Good luck
