Crossing Border

Hello

My k-1 visa is approved and ready to go. I am going to pick up my passport with the visa today.
I booked my flight to go to Florida on October 2, 2016 and marry my fiancee on Nov 4, 2016.

I was just wondering if I still can cross the border using my passport with the k1-visa in it?

I will just visit a family in New York for 1 day. Will there be any problem?

thank you.

Sorry to give you bad news but as stated, K-1 is a one time only visa. You cross the border and you need to stay and get married within 90 days. You're going to have to wait until October 2, 2016. You cannot use any other visa either. A K-1 takes precedence over other visas.

Sometimes Canadians are allowed to cross without activating their K1 visa. It's very dependent on the CBP officer you encounter.

Not sure I'd want to risk that.

I can think of at least 10 people on the board who have done it, one several times. It's up to the cbp officer at entry so probabaly not recommended for people flying since you'll lose a plane ticket if you decide not to enter because they want to endorse your visa.
