Hi everyone, 

 

could you please give me your opinion on this?

me and my boyfriend know each since 2012 we’ve met several times I went to the US to visit him. Our last time seeing each other was April 2018. After my esta authorization was denied and I could not go there anymore for some reasons and I had to apply for a visa. He couldn’t come because of work and we didn’t know when we were going to see other again. So we decided to break up as the distance was very hard to handle for both of us. We started talking again a few months ago and decided to meet again as his work let him travel but then the virus appeared and the borders have been closed. I would like to know if submitting the petition for The K1 visa at the moment is a good idea or should we wait to meet again when the borders will re open ? Since we haven’t met in 2 years I doubt they will approve the petition 

What do you guys think? 

thank you

There is no doubt that the petition will be denied.   Meeting within 2 years is one of the core requirements of the petition 


YMMV

Personally, I would use this time to research other options.  As @payxibka stated, there is no reason to file for a K1 right now, but eventually travel will be restored, and you will get the chance to meet in person again.  You may want to consider going the spousal visa route instead of the K1 when it comes time.

 

Good Luck!

It would be a waste of money to file now. Why was your ESTA denied? This situation will not be permanent so plan to meet again when flights are back to normal and borders are open to all.

Hi, it was denied because I was planning to live with him at the time so I started to search for an employer. All that from France I didn’t intend to Work there illegally as I wanted to apply for a work visa. And they thought I wanted to go there to work illegally and they denied my esta.
