Planning our Wedding while waiting for the Interview. K1 & K2 Visa

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

 

My fiance and I finally received our NOA2 letter of approval yesterday. Now we need to wait for the second half of the process. At least now we have a better visual, which allows us to plan better for the wedding. I live in Florida, but I am from Puerto Rico. I would love to be able to get married by the court here and then have our religious ceremony in Puerto Rico.  Would he be able to travel to PR, since it is a US territory and fly back to Florida? It would cost us a lot less to do it over there and would be way more beautiful! If he can travel to PR within the 90 days of his visa, would he be able to go to any other state taking a plane? We would love to go and visit my other family members and his friends since he will be arriving during the summer God willing.

I found this and though a bit dated, it seems to say no.  What I would do is get legally married soon after arrival, file the AOS package along with the AP (I131) and plan a trip to PR once the AP is received which lately is taking 4-6 months.  No sense risking it.

 

Good Luck!

Wepa!  My fiancee is also from Ecuador and I am from Puerto Rico. I live in Maryland and have the same mind set as you. I have ask this same question couple of times around. Last time I went to visit my fiancee for a couple of weeks and returned I ask at Fort Lauderdale POE to one of the officer and they stated that Puerto Rico is a domestic flight so you should not have any problems, however in the situation that for anyreason the plane must land elsewhere during the trip. The K1 is unvalid for re-entry. 

 

The answer is Yes you can go. But beware of any landing elsewhere. 

 

Congrats on your NOA2 I am still waiting for that.

 

Is good to know that more Boricuas are in this as well✌🏻

Hola mamma!!! Yes thank you so much!!! It is great to know I can relate to someone here, too. The difference is that my fiance is Venezuelan and lives in Ecuador. It's too bad you are so far away in Maryland we could meet up and talk about our experiences. Jajaja Did you file with a lawyer or doing it all on your own? We went ahead and did it all ourselves. It is a lot of work and time, but it truly is worth it now that the hardest part of this process is over and approved. Woohoo!

 

Regarding my question, so what can he use as an ID for a direct flight? Could he still use his passport? I mean even to NJ or California or Hawaii as well? So you mean direct flights within the US shouldn't be a problem?

 

I am asking because if he comes to FL we can do the court marriage and then do the ceremony and everything in PR! It's cheaperfor us I think and we can honeymoon there for sure. No? What do you think?
