    Immigration of my girl friend from Ghana to the USA
    There is a girl in Accra, Ghana that has an expired passport and I want her to come here with me in the USA on a Fiancé Visa. I need to know what documents she needs and the cost. And then how will I know when I can book the flight in the USA with a Credit Card and have her fly here. Any information or a real source to find this information would help me greatly. Arthur J.

    For the K-1 visa, you must have physically met in the past 2 years and demonstrate a bona fide fiance-fiancee relationship. You file the case with the USCIS on form I-129F.

    After approval, she applies for the visa at her home consulate, at which time she will need a valid unexpired passport.

    Well I cannot meet her. Is there another type of visa she can get to come here? Or another way she can come to the USA and what documents does she need. arthur.hobbs@yahoo.com

    You can meet in a third country, or if you get married, then you can file the K-3 visa.

    If not, she will need to apply for a B-2visitor visa. Please note that she should not use a B-2 to enter the US for the purpose of marrying you and applying for adjustment of status.

    OK and if she gets the B-2 visitor visa how long can she stay. I am confused about all this but do not want to violate laws. I would like to marry her at some point but do not know how to proceed. Can you advise me?

    ajhobbs, let me ask you a question... have you seen her before or is this a "I met her online" kind of thing?

    No I met her online but have verified through a reliable third party she is real. But I only trust so much that is why I want to find out how it really should be done if it can be. And if it won't work I will move on. Thanks for you concern.

    If she gets the B-2 visitor visa, she can stay in the US for up to 6 months, after which she should leave and return to her home country.

    You are not trying to bring someone to the US for money, are you? If you are and you are caught, you could go to prison. How old are you people. You both will have to go through some intensive questioning and if you are lying, yo could be in serious problems.

    Are you absolutely sure this person is who they claim to be, there are far too many scams out of Ghana where girls pretend to fall in love with you and ask to come see you, then they ask you to pay for their passport, visa and send them money for a plane ticket. In the end they never come visit and presumably never spent the money you sent on what they claimed.

    It's very well documented, this scam is so common and so bad that even the US Embassy in Ghana has posted warnings about it on their website

    Well thanks for your concern. I have found out as much as I can and now told her she has to pay for the papers. If she does it OK. If not then she can stay there. Thanks for your advice.
