45 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello 

 

if someone have valid US tourism visa is it better to get married in US and apply for AOS and how much time goes it takes 

 

or to go back and apply for CR1 as I heard that now the CR1 takes around 18 month so AOS (I 485 if the spouse is US citizen )might be better 

 

thanks

It is not legal to come to the US on a tourist visa with the intention to stay and AOS.  It is fine to come to the US on an ESTA or B2 and get married and leave the US with the intention to file for a spousal visa in the future.

I read that a lot have done it and they need to wait 60 days from the entry it is called the 30 60 90 days rule. There is nothing illegal about it they even allow the spouse to work after 6 month

Again, it is not legal to enter the US on a tourist visa with the intention to stay and adjust status.  It is legal to come to the US, and if life events change while here where one gets married, then they can file an AOS.  However, this decision is made after the fact of entering the US, not before.

See INA 214(b) to obtain a tourist visa, or INA 212(a)(7)(A)(i)(I) at POE for entering as an intending immigrant without an immigrant visa (or visa that allows immigrant intent like a K-1 visa).

Also see the expedited removals some people have received as a result of trying this. Just Google it and you'll see plenty of it.

If that is the case there would not be a 30 60 90 days rule for marriage

30 60 90 days whatever doesn't help you overcome fraud when you already have AOS intention. This forum is not for you, find fraud advice from somewhere else.

There is no rule. That's a rumor. You have a lot of educating to do. Please start.
