My fiance's visa expires December 16th. I want to get her ticket for November but we both want to be sure there will be no problem if the travel date is so close to visa expiration. Has there been any problems with this? (From Philippines to U.S)

Visitors traveling to the U.S. are required to be in possession of passports that are valid for six months beyond the period of their intended stay in the U.S.  

 

She should be renewing it now.

As long as she enters the US before Nov 16th, there will be no problem. I would book it so that the entry date is 2-3 days before the expiration, in case flights get delayed or something

The visa expiration is the Visa expiration,  meaning you have to present yourself at the border before that exact day.  


YMMV

Visa expiration and passport expiration are two very different things

Does that apply to people entering on a K-1?

Does not, and in addition there are 130 nations exempt from this rule (more are exempt than it applies to).  For the 130 nations, the length of passport validity must only cover the period of intended stay not intended stay plus 6 months

As long as your fiancee clears POE before the expiration date noted in the visa there are no issues.

Visa expires in December .. no mention of the passport expiring.   No reason to be renewing her passport.

No reason to enter the USA before Nov 16th .. the expiration date of the visa is December 16th  .. needs to be in the USA by 15 December at the latest.

This is incorrect. They said it expires December 16th. So long as they enter on or before December 16th they are fine.

I think you posted on the wrong thread. We aren't talking about passport validity. They will be entering on a K1 visa that expires December 16th. The OP was asking is it okay if she enters a month before it expires.
