Find a way to meet will save you a lot of time of RFE/denial for not meeting. You can meet with other people in the room and so on it's been done by many others in here.

I thought Morocco was predominately Muslim? What religion is he?

Two Year Meeting Requirement Waiver and Exception

More importantly, the couple must show with substantial and convincing evidence that they have a true and honest relationship and not merely a relationship designed to evade immigration law and obtain immigration benefits. Additionally, the K1 couple must demonstrate that they have meet within the two years immediately prior to the filing of the K1 visa application.

The two year meeting requirement is rigidly enforced and many K1 visa applications are denied or placed in 221(g) administrative processing because of the requirement. Keep in mind that it does not matter whether you meet after the K1 application was filed, what matters to the USCIS is that the couple met during the two year period immediately before the filing date. Other couples have failed because they had known each other for years and didnt think it was necessary for them to meet during the two year period.

Additionally, not only does a couple have to meet during the two year period, they have to provide evidence that they have met. A couple cannot merely claim that they have met, they must show that they have traveled together, celebrated a birthday or holiday, and have documentary evidence of such a meeting. Couples are routinely denied a K1 visa because they fail to demonstrate that the meeting actually took place. Claims are not enough for the USCIS, it is necessary to demonstrate with documents and proof that a K1 couple has met during the two year period.

The meeting requirement is strictly enforced and a couple applying for the K1 visa should not take for granted the need for physical proof that they have met during the required time. Unfortunately, receiving a waiver or bypass on the requirement is a difficult task because exceptions are rarely made. For cases where it might be possible tend to be for cases where it would be physically impossible for the U.S. citizen to meet the fiance due to severe physical disability due to their medical condition.

Islam (I assuming that's your fiance's religion) does not prohibit you meeting him. You two are just not supposed to meet alone. As long as others are present, it's perfectly OK for you two to meet. Which is why your religious waiver for not meeting would not be approved.

I have been here for a decade and only remember one religious waiver being granted, As stated your long held religion must prohibit all meeting before marriage , not that you can't be alone before marriage. A lot of couples find real life meeting a pain in the backside and think they will get by on a waiver but there are good reasons that they enforce meeting each other. Many an online fantasy are dashed when face to face occurs.

This 100%. Even if you know what the person looks like, you've talked on Skype, etc. There's still a physical attraction that you need. You can mentally/emotionally love someone and talk to them on skype everyday, but if you meet and have no spark, it could leave both parties devastated. You won't ever find out if that spark is there without meeting face to face in the same place at the same time. Things like video chat show you who you're talking too, but they remove human interaction to an extent, while you could love the face you're talking too, you may not actually love the person you can touch.

This does happen to people, it's happened to myself when I thought I had feelings for someone, meeting them and bam there was no connection. Going from talking to them on the phone texting to them on the way to meet them, and seeing them in person, exactly the same person that I had seen on the computer, and nothing. While everyone wants to say they aren't shallow or that they could love everyone for who they are, It happens to a lot of people, and if we could truly love everyone then the world would be a much stranger place!

One of the reasons I was so relieved when my husband and I had a connection when we met in person LOL. Had a connection for 3 years online, when I saw him and it was there, kind of like a oh thank god moment.

I have been here for a decade and only remember one religious waiver being granted,

Same, and if I remember correctly, they were some obscure African sect.

Op- as others have said, it is practically impossible to get that waiver. You would need proof in several forms; well known religious leaders of your religions, historic proof in books, as well as current documentation via articles or academic papers stating that ANY meeting is not allowed. Not just "no touching" or "not being alone".

My husband is Muslim and there is NO religious restriction to meeting before you're married other than a woman(if she's Muslim) needing a male chaperone. None. Stop grasping at straws and meet in person or be denied.

OP has not mentioned the religion that is involved.

im assuming the OP is Muslim because I myself am unaware of any other religion that puts these kinds of restrictions on meeting up etc.

However like mimolicous said it is not prohibited to meet- you can meet but perhaps need a male chaperone or a group of people there while you meet, you may not be alone before marriage or have sexual relations before marriage.

Like other PP have stated- it will most likely get denied because many Muslims have met even if they haven't been allowed to be alone or stay together. It will most likely be denied and show red flags.

Meet each other and take pictures with groups of people if you cannot take them alone. There is always a way.
