int'l. travel after arrival on K-3, before AOS

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife and step-daughters are in the U.S. on K-3 and K-4 visas. We are waiting to start the AOS (to green card), because they are all planning to spend the summer in Russia; and, we do not wish to plan around a summer AOS interview.

Does anyone know for certain (maybe by experience) if there would normally be no problem for them to travel to Russia and back again before starting the AOS process?

Thanks.

The K3 visa is a multi-entry visa and is valid for 2 years.... you would be ok to wait to file for AOS after the trip in the summer... only thing you need to remember is that the medical is only valid for a year.... so if it is more than a years since the medical was done when you file for AOS you will need to have it re-done....

I have read elsewhere that a K-3 holder does not need to apply for advance parol to leave the U.S. Do you know whether this applies whether or not the K-3 holder has filed to begin the AOS process?

We are thinking about applying for AOS in April; the biometrics appointment should then be in May; and after that, traveling to Russia for 10 weeks.

A K3 does not need AP to travel on the K3.... if you file in april and you get your biometrics done in may and you then go to russia for 10 weeks what will you do if you are called for interview during that 10 weeks..., how will you get your mail? if you fail to show up for your interview your AOS will be denied and you would have to start all over again....
