Can Sponsor Go Through Immigration With Fiancée?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiancée and her three sons received their visas a few weeks ago.  I traveled to Guatemala to help them pack and for a farewell/pre-wedding party since almost nobody here has a visa and will be unable to attend the wedding.

 

She is nervous about the entire process through immigration at the airport once we enter the USA.  I would like to accompany them if I could.  From what I recall from my last few trips through immigration, they direct US Citizens one way and those entering with visas a different way.  Would I be able to stay with them and go through the immigration visa line as their sponsor, despite being a US citizen, or do I have to go through the other line and wait at the exit for them to finish?

Thanks for asking this question OP. I was wondering about this myself since I never see anyone post about going back to America with their foreign spouse.

Yes you can go thru the line with them.   All of you go to the foreign line / booth together.

 

We crossed by land, at a small poe I go thru often, they recognized me and gave us a warm welcome.
