My petition to bring my Russian fiancee to the US was approved and her k1 visa expires on Dec 23rd.
The embassy in Moscow placed her visa on the last page of her passport, and as a result she had to get a new passport before she could actually travel. We are expecting her new passport to arrive any day, and she is ready to come as soon as it arrives.
Since there are no approved vaccines available in Russia, she cannot fly into the US.
Our plan is that she will fly to Frankfurt, as she has a valid US visa, I don't think she needs a visa to transit through Frankfurt. Is this correct?
From Frankfurt, she will fly to Mexico City and then to Tijuana. My understanding is that she won't need a visa to enter Mexico as she has the valid US visa. Can anyone tell me if this is correct?
She will then enter the US at the Tijuana/San Diego point of entry, where I will meet her and then we will drive home to Oregon.
Can anyone tell me if this is a workable scenario? What can she expect at the border crossing? She has her packet from the interview which I assume contains her medical test results. Is there anything else that she should bring, besides the passport with the K1 visa and the new passport? Would it be a good idea for me to meet her in Tijuana and enter the US with her, or should I just wait? This has been a long journey with many ups and downs, and now that the end is in sight, I don't want to risk anything going wrong and having to start it all over.
