My sister in India may be getting married to a US citizen..she would like to apply for a tourist visa first so she can come stay in the US and spend some time with him before her marriage.

If she applies for a tourist visa, stays in the US for a month or so and then later they apply together for a fiance/K3 visa, are there going to be problems for the K3 visa application considering that she had just applied for a tourist visa before? Is it better to not apply for the tourist visa in this case? Thanks...

Way to go !!! great . Thsi is the way otherwise if you follow the other wise (round about way) Declare intent and get GC at Consulate...USCIS will start giving you a hard time with with rampany misuse of 221(g) enquiry etc. That is the beauty: At consulate they have unchallenged powers and they know it and therefore abuse it; But once you enter USA ...if they give you a hard time, you can haul their a**es to court and
sue them


If you ram into US with a B1/B2...then great they will made deal with you...however one thing
be careful about...if the marriage is soon after you enter US and can complain of the false intent in the B2 entry...

Have alook at Fiancee visa (K Visai think so ) as well.
