This is Fred Wahl the Visa Coach Todays topic is: Using Fiance Visa after the
wedding Visa Coach Fast, Easy and Personal Hi. My name is Fred Wahl – I am the VisaCoach,
known for “front loaded immigration presentations” that tell YOUR story leading to fast and easy
approval AND the personal one-on-one attention you receive as my client. I invented the three step “immigration success
method” which anticipates the likely problems and skepticism
your case might face, and then squashes those issues by working together on the ideal
appearance of your case and preparation of my signature “front loaded
presentation” that tells YOUR story the way we WANT it heard. When properly implemented,
my method helps “win” approval for your visa even before the
interview starts. Todays topic is: Using Fiance Visa after the wedding Got a phone call today from a man whose fiancee
is in the Philippines. She had an idea and asked him to call and run it by me. She really
wants to have her wedding in the Philippines, at her Church and in front of her family but
doesn’t like the idea of waiting for a year to get a spouse visa to travel to the USA,
especially when she knows that fiance visas are much faster some taking only 4 months. She wants to have her “cake and eat it too”.
She wanted to immediately apply for a fiancee visa, and while it is pending get married
in her hometown, then attend her Fiance Visa interview at the US consulate in Manila, pretend
she is still single, and finally travel using her fiancee visa to the USA. The couple would
get married a second time, this time in the US, and only tell immigration about the second
marriage, keeping the first wedding secret. It is truly a BAD IDEA The rules are very clear. ONLY an unmarried
person may apply for and/or travel on a fiancee visa. Her plan basically entails that she
will ‘lie’ in writing on her application forms, then ‘lie’ verbally to the consulate officer,
and lie’ verbally to the immigration officer at the US border. At each stage, they will
repeatedly ask her to confirm that she is still unmarried. Each time she answers their
questions, she is swearing under oath to an officer of the US government. There are Penalties for Fraud
What she is planning is immigration fraud. Immigration takes a very dim view of this.
When caught in her dishonesty, there is a wide variety of punishments US immigration
could apply. She could be refused entry, deported, banned from entering the USA for 3 or 10 years,
or even banned for life. Don’t try to ‘Game’ Immigration
Lying to US immigration, trying to ‘game’ the visa process is always a bad idea.
She has two safe and honest choices. Apply for a fiancee visa, and then after a
wait of about 6 to 8 months, travel to the USA and marry for the FIRST time. (she could
return later to the Philippines with her new husband, to marry a second time in front of
her friends. Or get married for the FIRST time in her home town, then after a wait of
about 10 to 14 months, join her husband in the USA. Give her the Wedding of her Dreams
A genuine couple should anticipate spending their entire remaining lives together. If
giving her the wedding she wants, means a small sacrifice of a few extra months of separation,
it is well worth it. Wedding arrangements are typically more important
to the female. As a matchmaker I counsel every man, ‘let her have the wedding she wants’.
It is important to start your marriage on the right foot. If this is her dream, let
her have it. She will always remember and be grateful and know she chose the right man.
If speed is THE priority: then apply for a fiancee visas.
If her dream wedding in her church, surrounded by family and friends is THE priority, then
apply for the spousal visa. This was Fred Wahl, the VisaCoach Call me. Before starting on your immigration adventure,
