I was moved to respond to your question so that you don't jeopardize your visa chances of approval.
My sincere and technical advise to you is not to do any form of traditional marriage before you enter the U.S. on K1. If you conduct the marriage, it is not technically advisable to hide it from the VO since terms of your visa is against any form of marriage before you use the visa. If you hide and they find out during your interview, point of entry or later in the U.S. You have technically commuted a visa fraud and can lead to a bigger problem for you and your spouse. Lieing or hiding is not permitted or tolerated in U.S. immigration process.
If you conduct the marriage and tell the VO, it is the VO's discretion to deem you married or not. There is a 50% chance the VO might deem you married. If that happens, your visa will be denied and the K1 petition be sent back to USCIS to expire. It is not advisable to take this risk because many people have been denied K1 in the past based on deem married.
You can conduct traditional marriage after you have your advance parole. This will be after your wedding in the U.S. and you have filed for adjustment of status.
Wish best of luck !

How long will it take my boyfriend to get his visa after his biometrics appointment?
His appointment is on the 12th of next month, so will he have to remain in Atlanta Georgia until his visa is out?

Are you inquiring about the K-1 interview to be held in Lagos?
|Re: USA Fiancee (K1) Visa Thread by select500: 5:22pm On Oct 16|
He should get that information from the officials, when he gets the Biometrics done. Many things have changed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
|Re: USA Fiancee (K1) Visa Thread by Coquinoqui: 8:56pm On Oct 16|
Yes k1 interview but am in Dakar Senegal my application will be sent here not Nigeria
|Re: USA Fiancee (K1) Visa Thread by select500: 12:30pm On Oct 17|
Okay. I believe it's advisable to show them all the information in regards to any kids you have, including the child's birth certificate.
Also, you can take along your Bachelor's degree certificate. Make sure you also take along photocopies of all your original documents.
They will only view the originals and then you can give them the photocopies, if they wish to collect them.

I hope everyone is fine and safe, especially our members who are in Naija? A quick update on my case, I got a mail from USCIS yesterday for my interview. However, the date they gave me didn't really favor me as my wife is away on active duty and will not be back before the interview date. I went to the local office today to explain the situation and also showed them a written letter from her command stating that she will be away between the month of October to November. After taking a look at it, the case officer I met placed a call, then came back and told me to still come for the interview with all the necessary documents and supporting evidence. If they still feel the need to contact her, they will. So I hope everything works out, wish me luck. Cheers!!!!

|Re: USA Fiancee (K1) Visa Thread by Priceless200(f): 1:55pm On Oct 26|
Regarding the certain categories visa ban for Nigerians or generally. Which would you guys advice.
Finace visa(coming to US to marry your fiance(e) OR
spousal visa(married already, coming to join my spouse) in US.
|Re: USA Fiancee (K1) Visa Thread by molybdenum0012: 5:16pm On Oct 26|
From what I have been reading on the tread, I think fiance visa stands a chance in this ban period because it is not even considered as an immigrant visa. Whereas spousal visa is considered as an immigrant visa which is affected by the ban.
|Re: USA Fiancee (K1) Visa Thread by Priceless200(f): 9:16am On Oct 27|
I see thanks a lot for this. I appreciate
|Re: USA Fiancee (K1) Visa Thread by Okpueee: 11:39am On Oct 27|
When will the embassy start scheduling K1 visa interviews. The wait is killing. I miss my fiance.
|Re: USA Fiancee (K1) Visa Thread by Mayorr89: 12:40am On Oct 28|
Recently, F1 students have been able to book appointments and have their visa interviews already. Also dates are now available for B1/B2 in Lagos, I guess for January.. so I believe appointments for k1 visa should be
Made available soon too. Cheers!
