Can we enter together on a K-1 visa?

Recommended Posts

Can I as the K-1 visa petioner take the trip back to the US together with my fiance/beneficiary so that we can both enter the US together?

 

I remember reading somewhere that we shouldn't enter together, but I haven't been able to locate a statement to that effect again so it seems I may be misremembering.

 

Thanks,

 

Eric

There is no problem at all with that. Many couples or I should say petitioners fly to the beneficiaries country to attend the interview together, wait until the visa arrives then flight back to US together and get married. This isnt abnormal.

 

Being from Brazil, I`m assuming thats your plan, attend the interview and return to US together right? If not, you are fine anyways.

My now husband flew to Sweden to pick me up so he could be there for me for my big move across the world. It was so nice to have him there through all the stress, packing and the 12 hour flight, and also that I could use his check-in bags for all the stuff I wanted to bring. I highly recommend this! :P

I have no idea where you are getting your information but YES you can enter together.  Joining your fiance in their country is no problem.  I attended my wife's interview in Manila Embassy, we waited 7 days until she received her visa.  We flew together back to my hometown in Hawaii.
