Hello All,

 

My Fiance is coming to the US from Brazil on May 10, 2020 on a K1-visa. I called the airlines and they said her flight to still going to fly out. I wanted to know if anyone know if the K1-visa is an exception from the executive order on immigration? Meaning that this executive order does not apply to the K1-visa. 

 

Based on this article, it is not really clear if the K1-visa is exempted. See link below.

Also, could you provide some proof of your responses? That would be very helpful!

 

Thank you so much!

A K1 is exempt.  It does not say "Immigrant Visa" on it and requires AOS in order to get a green card.

Justin and Sara,

 

My Brazilian fiance' and I are in the same position (and probably many others), so with her entry to the U.S. in just 10 days from now, would you mind please re-posting after Sara has entered and let us all know how her entry process went?  I assume she'll be entering in Atlanta.  My fiance' is scheduled to arrive in early June through Chicago.

 

And please keep your eyes open regarding President Trump's musings about banning flights from Brazil.  Don't get caught with no way to get Sara here -- make sure she's ready to move on a moment's notice.  If a ban is announced, there will probably be a few days before it goes into effect (similar to the EU ban), so if that happens, do everything possible to get her on a flight immediately.

 

Good luck,

--Mark

Hello Mark,

 

Yes I can post and let you know how her entry process went. She will be entering in Miami! Wow congrats! I hope she makes it here with no problems!

 

I will definitely do that Mark! We talked about this last night! I wish you and your fiance all the best!

 

Thanks,

 

Justin
