Re: Getting a VISA for graduate study

Depending on where she lives, it might be quickest for her to enter the US on a tourist visa and decide exactly what to do once she is here. If you got married right away, she could apply for an immigrant visa if you are a US citizen. Or she could still obtain a student visa.

Or she could enter on a student visa if she already has been admitted to the postgraduate program. Or she could enter on a fiance visa if you plan on getting married right away.

My opinion is that you should consult an immigration attorney in your community to review the options and let him/her handle the paperwork and advise you. It will be the best decision you ever made.
