Traveling from Brazil to USA

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


I am an American citizen currently in Brazil with my fiancee. We have a civil union (called Uniao Estavel here in Brazil). She has a valid tourist visa and spent a total of 5 months in the USA in 2015. We were approved for the K-1 process, which we did up until the interview stage because we thought we should stay in Brazil to live. We would like to travel to the United States to go to Disney World  We are concerned that when we travel, immigration can deny her entry, believing she and I, because of our previous K-1 filing, intend for her to stay illegally in the US. Is this something we should be concerned about?

Probably be OK, just bring evidence of her ties, job etc, to be shown if asked.
