Reason For Visit Before CR-1?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Long story short:

My fiance (Canada) is coming here (U.S) in September. We are getting married on the 15th. He will leave some time at the beginning of October. We don't have exact dates yet, but for the sake of this, I'll just say early October. When he travels here and goes through the border, what is he supposed to say when they ask why he's coming? Some people say be honest and say that he's coming here to get married and returning after to begin the CR-1 process, but others say that'll raise red flags and just to say he's visiting me.

 

Any thoughts on this? We've put a lot of money into this wedding already, so the last thing we want or need is for him to get denied at the border.

 

(Just for reference, he will come here, we will get married, he will return, and then we will begin the CR-1 process.)


January 13th, 2017: The First Day

May 8th, 2018: The "Yes" Day

Never, ever lie to CBP.  He should be honest and explain that he is coming to marry you and then return to Canada, as required for the CR-1 process.
