K1 visa after denial of visitor visa

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I need an urgent help. My visitor visa got expired and i had to renew it under visa renewal program within one year of expiry of my visitor visa. I met my fiance in July but we were not sure after our first meeting. In September I applied for renewal and answered the Question  ''purpose of trip - Family visit" in DS 160 (my family is there and i was usually visiting US in every 2-3 years during my previous visa) though my visa got denied.  At that time he was not my fiance or even boyfriend. we just met once and liked each other, that's it. but in December he proposed me and i accepted. My fiance filed K1 on the basis of our meeting in July. Now my question is-  what would be the impact of this because CO may ask this question that I applied visitor visa when i was talking to my fiance but did not disclose it. Kindly help.

Not an issue for the K-1 (unless they specifically asked you about his relationship to you and you lied...and even then it's probably not a material misrepresentation as you were denied anyway).

My fiancee was denied 2x for tourist visa, 2 months before we filed for K1.  It was a topic during the interview, they just asked about the timelines like did she apply for B2 while doing K1 etc (no... bc B2 was before then) and discussed why she applied for B2 at that time, what was her intention.
