Return to US and bring a Taiwan Fianceé with me

Postby Joschka » 23 Dec 2014, 19:23

I'm hoping I have a simple situation but I've attempted to wade thorough the instructions at AIT and their "Agent" site http://www.ustraveldocs.com/tw/ and I end up going in circles. AIT says I have to make a a K1 interview appointment through the agent and the agent says I have to make the K1 interview appointment at AIT.

Does anybody know how to go through this process? (I would think getting married in Taiwan would make this easier but my Fianceé does not want her family to know she is getting married and her 'registered' address is her sister's house.

(In the mean time, I have an APRC, I've left my current Taiwanese wife, and we are negotiating a divorce - which of course I have to complete first.)

So far, the answer seems to be "Don't do it this way!"

Entering the US with a foreign wife is pretty simple but getting her into the US so you can marry her there is a HUGE PAIN IN THE REAR! And it may involve a many month wait.

Can you elaborate? This question gets asked a lot on this board but nobody ever seems to answer it. My wife and I *may* move back one day and it would be nice to know how to do that.
This is a highly proper signature.

I did this 14 years ago, though the spouse-to-be was not Taiwanese but another foreign national (not American), and we applied through AIT in Taiwan. I don't recall any anxiety or a particularly long wait. I remember a simple interview, certainly not nearly as dramatic as you always see in the movies. Things may (or may not) have been easier given his nationality, though he didn't come from a country that would be, er, ahem, a desirable source of immigrants.
