K1 Visa entry to the United States

39 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

 

Need some urgent help. My fiancee had her K1 Visa approved in February and it is due to expire May 26, 2020. 

She is in Madrid and from what I have read, she will be allowed into the country. My only concern is that she is 

in Madrid and thus in the Schengen Area - part of the travel ban. Does anyone know if she can enter the US with 

the K1 Visa? Very worried about the expiration, especially since we waited so long to get it approved

Thank you

She will not be allowed into the country. A travel ban was imposed in March due to COVID-19

I'm certain she will not be allowed in because she needs to be 14 days quarantined in a non restricted country before entry will be allowed 


YMMV

At a glance:

With limited exceptions, foreign nationals will be barred from entering the United States if they have been physically present in one of the 26 countries of the Schengen Area within 14 days before their attempted entry.

 

U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, their spouses and children under 21, and certain other family members are not subject to the travel restrictions, among other exemptions.

 

The travel restrictions will remain in effect until terminated by President Trump.

Can you travel and stay for 14 days in another country, then enter the US from there. I have heard other people doing a 14 day layover in another country then entering the US. Maybe a option for you.

If you get married anywhere but the United States, her K-1 visa will become void.

@Boricua1992 - this ^^

 

I realise it's not ideal... but this will be your best bet... if there IS a country who is ok receiving people from the area into their country and they are NOT on the banned travel list then this is your best way to go.  I don't see any way around it at the moment.  There's many reports of people not being allowed to check in (I'm surprised they are even flying there - I'm guessing it must be part of a layover flight) when trying to leave and fly to the USA.

You understand that a K-1 visa dictates that the legal marriage MUST take place in the US, right?  She cannot enter the US via a K-1 if she has already married.

Yes. I should have stated that we intent to marry once she/we are in the US

As of now, her visa expires on the 26th and we are getting a lot of mixed responses from other websites and sources

The US Embassy in Spain does not respond and we have no remaining options with the rapid approaching deadline

The consulate can, at their discretion, re-issue expired passports of the holder can not travel before visa expiration.  That would require a new medical exam, fees, and possibly other documents.  I see few other options if the travel ban is not lifted.

my now husband got a reissue in Jamaica last year, we had to pay a new DS160, but no other medical exams, etc.  It is not a secret the areas that are part of the ban, I am pretty confident that by appealing for a new visa it should not be an issue.  That being said, I am sure there will be a fee, as nothing is free :)
