Congratulations!

 

May I ask what was the reason for the 1st K1 denial?

 

9 years is a long time. But in the end, love does prevail/win.....

 

Best wishes to you both!

Casablanca never gives a reason not even writen on the 221g but i believe it was the age difference

 

the lady asked "what does your family think of her?"

i had told him to smile and be polite so he did

he said "they loves her" and smiled

she said "you smile ,  you lie/ visa denied"

Oh My....

Did you tell him to smile and be polite in front of the agent?

I ask because I am curious....and I also need to prep my man for his interview...as I realize that in some countries the slightest thing (like smiling?) could be a cause for denial.

I too am older than him...7 years....so that does worry me some--even though HE acts alot older than I do 😊

He is Cuban and I'm Cuban-American living in Atlanta....

I'm so glad I took pictures with his parents and siblings during my last visit--hope that helps.

I'M SOOOOO HAPPY FOR YOU!!!

yes ,  i said smile

but i have found out since that some embassies take this so serious and the immigrant needs to also be totally serious 

photos with family are necessary "in a lot of countries"  as the family has to approve

and your age difference is not that much of a deal / ours was a lot more

on top of this and getting the new passport ,  we were both going to get the global entry from TSA

i just looked at the site and saw this 

 

Has anyone done the global entry and know if it is worth it?

 

 The extended partial government shutdown has resulted in a substantial backlog of CBP's Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP) applications and renewals.

Congrats!

 

Global Entry is very worthwhile if you travel once a year internationally and a few times a year domestically as it includes TSA precheck.

 

Here is Mary's LAX immigration times:   Without Global Entry (but using citizen lane)  Immigration 20 minutes, customs 25 minutes.  With GE, immigration 3 minutes, customs 1 person ahead of her!

 

We just used it coming back from Montreal, combined with security priority lane,  probably saved an hour skipping all the lines.  I have had it since it started and saved tons of time especially when combined with the APEC card arriving at Pacific destinations.

 

One other thing is the download Mobile Passport app.  Sometimes those lines are even shorter and it is Free!  I've used it at DFW and JFK.  It is not available everywhere.

 

The caseload from the shutdown is caught up.  They don't maintain that site very well.

 

Note:  Green Card Holders can apply for Global Entry or Sentri but not Nexus
