Immigration Issues/US Spouse Visa

Advertisement


Question
I am a US Citizen, married to a UK citizen, currently living in the UK on a Spouse Visa. My husband and I would like to move back to the states. Would it be possible for him to enter on a VWP and apply for his Spouse visa while in the states?

Answer
It is possible, but if Immigraton finds out he is coming to live with you permanently in the United States they will not let him inon VWP. I would recommend travelling seaprately and having him say he is coming to tour the U.S. if asked.

The VWP just avoids the need to go to the Embassy and get a visa. He still must pass inspections, when he actually tries to enter.
