Signing in Hawaii

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

First time post, please forgive me if I miss anything.

I just recently submitted my I-129F (Aug 22), and go approved on Oct 4th, now it's in the process of NVC.

thanks to all of your Q&A here, there were no rejection in between.

So my fiancee, she's from Malaysia, and I are discussing about where to sign when the time comes, and we have came up an idea of signing in Hawaii.

I wonder would it be possible if we flight straight from Malaysia to Hawaii and get sign there? would her K-1 Visa allow?

Does she needs to go through some sort of check-in to the Immigration office first?

Sorry, I don't know anything :crying::crying:

thanks for all your help!

Where to sign what? You mean get married? Yes, you can marry in Hawaii.

Yes, she will have to go through POE.

Note: you may want to correct your timeline. Your country is showing as Armenia, the default country.

We live in Hawai'i. It is easy to get a marriage license. Here is the link: http://health.hawaii.gov/vitalrecords/marriage-licenses/

There is now a way to download your marriage certificate (two very different things) in Hawai'i rather than wait the few weeks for the official certificate to be mailed. I THINK this is the link we used when were just married, but the officiant has to enter all of the data online for this to work for you.

There are plenty of ways as well as considerations to think of when getting married in Hawai'i. Here is a simple google search of "Getting married in Hawai'i. Best of luck to you and Aloha!

Glad to help. I don't have an answer to your specific question. I am sure that many of the links in the google page I re-attached will have all the information you need.
