zhakavibe reacted to Beruang101 in Official Executive Order for Suspending Entry of Immigrants
Just wanted to follow up to an earliest post I made. My fiancée arrived into the USA today post executive order. She had absolutely no problem and it seemed way easier than anyone thought it was going to be. I also spoke to a few attorneys as well and can only speak on behalf of those with a k1 visa. From what it appears as long as you have the k1 visa before the EO took effect you should be safe. Also the airlines realize if they let someone in a flight and they get deported that airline has to pay a big fine so the idea for the most part is if they make it on the plane they should be fine. By the way her checked bag ironically got stolen in a very empty airport but I will trade a bag for my fiancée any day.

Note that she entered with K-1 two days ago; not "tomorrow"

Good morning everyone! Fiancé successfully made it through Toronto customs this morning with his K1 visa. He says the customs officer first said they were not accepting that visa, but they were corrected by another officer and he ultimately was accepted. From there sounds like it was a smooth, normal process. I am sure he was the first visa through since the executive order took effect so there was probably some learning this morning.

So this would technically mean anyone with a K1 visa is still going to be able to enter the USA and that this ban does not apply because is a non-inmigrant visa-? I hope this is true and makes sense.
