I have come accross what I see as a serious situation and I wanted some comments from expereinced guys on this.
A friend of mine is engaged to a Russian girl and they are gathering the papers for the K-1 application. But he has spoken to the Texas BCIS and thay have given him pretty bad info as far as I see it and he wont listen to anyone else now.
He plans to file for the K-1 in Texas BCIS (they say 2 months...yeah right !!!) but at the same time he wants his fiancee and her 9 year old daughter to apply for a tourist visa so they can come to the US immediately and wait there for the K-1 visa process to run its course and fly back to Moscow for the interview. Texas BCIS says this is fine. As far as I am aware the BCIS have nothing to do with a tourist visa application.
I cannot believe that this can work. If it was that easy everyone would do it. As far as I see she would be refused a tourist visa because she would be applying for a K-1 visa and that is for a different purpose than the tourist visa. The embassy would refuse the tourist visa and that would affect her K-1 visa. Thats as I see it, maybe I am wrong and this is a simple solution to the problem....but I don't think I am and I want to show him that I am not the only one that thinks so.
If any experienced guys want to pass comment on this guys plan...then please do.
So it would actually impede the fiancee visa application process if the fiancee has previously applied for a tourist visa in the US? If we just wanted her to come to the US to visit before we apply for a fiancee visa?
