Navigating Your U.S. Travel Plans During the National Visa Center Process

When you and your partner are separated by borders, with one of you navigating the complexities of the U.S. immigration system, every moment together is precious. This journey, filled with paperwork and waiting periods, often raises an important question for couples: “Is it possible for us to visit each other in the U.S. while the National Visa Center (NVC) processes our application?”



Visiting Your Partner During NVC Processing

The simple answer is yes, you can visit your partner in the U.S. while your visa application is under review. This opportunity to reunite, even temporarily, can be a source of comfort and strength during the long wait. The key lies in having the right visa or status, such as ESTA for eligible countries or a tourist visa.

Before booking your flights, ensure you have the appropriate permission. Whether it’s an ESTA or a tourist visa, having this sorted out is your first step towards a reunion. These permits are essential for your short visits and are the foundation of your travel plans during the visa process.

Proving Your Commitment to Return

Remember, entry into the U.S. is at the discretion of the immigration officers. They need to be sure that your visit is just that—a visit. It’s crucial to show that your relationship and love span borders, but your stay in the U.S. is temporary.

Be prepared with evidence that ties you to your home country, like a job, family, or property. Honesty and transparency about your relationship and intent to return are paramount. Any hint of permanence can jeopardize both your visit and ongoing visa applications.
