There are banned countries.   As long as your fiancee is not subject to one of the Proclamations, all should be fine 


YMMV

I knew someone who was denied entry at LAX last year ( visitor visa )  but that was because she had a lot of luggage with her. Probably the CBP Officer thought she wanted to stay 😂 this was despite her passport having stamps from all over the world. You and your fiancé shouldn’t be scared at all, she just have to answer their questions honestly. Good luck!

Only USCs are guaranteed entry. All others can be denied if deemed inadmissible.

 

With a valid K-1 visa, I would not expect an issue unless there is reason for the CBP officer to suspect the visa was issued improperly or will be used improperly. For instance, if the officer believes they already married abroad (people have done this) or that they do not intend to marry (this has happened too - don't joke around with CBP when they ask questions), or if there is a new criminal offense that makes them inadmissible since the visa was issued, or a new EO is signed that bars her for whatever reason.

In >99.x% of the cases, a K or immigrant visa holder has no issue at all.

So it does. Hmm...posted in K-1 forum and past posts mention a fiance, and timeline indicates NVC processing and P3 + P4 dates.

If I had to guess, the OP is referring to a K-1 visa still and the profile/timeline is wrong.

Thanks for the positive comment. My relative, him and his wife were not able to fly for no reason. Their son is here and he did the visa for them
