Fiance Visa

Can a fiancé(e) apply for a tourist visa while a K-1 visa is pending?

Free Consultation »

Yes. In order for a tourist visa to be issued, however, the United States embassy or consulate officer must be convinced that the fiancé(e) intends to return to their country after the visit to the United States. The pending K-1 visa application indicates that the fiancé(e) intends to marry and live permanently in the United States. Thus, the fiancé(e) must prove that although they intend to live permanently in the United States, they will return to their home country after the visit. Since this is difficult to prove, it is likely that the United States embassy or consulate officer will deny the application for a tourist visa.
