Marriage in foreign country

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Does USCIS or USA care where a couple get's marry? For example: I am a US citizen, and my fiance soon to be spouse is from Cambodia. We decide that we want to get marry in Thailand, but file our i130 selecting US Embassy in Cambodia for the interview. Is this legal, and will there be any red flags?

Married is married.  You apply for a visa in your country of citizenship or your country of residence.  Where you marry is up to you and whether you meet the requirements of that particular place.  Only the obsolete K3 visa requires the marriage be in country of citizenship, or residency, or the US.  Location of marriage is irrelevant to a CR1 visa process.
