Bringing girlfriend here
Hi, my girlfriend and I have been in long distance ''relationship for quite a while now (email, letters, phone calls etc). Unfortunatly, I am unable to recieve a passport due to some historical legal issues. I am interested in marrying this woman and bringing her to the US. It is my understanding that for a fiance visa we would have to meet in person. being unable to travel abroad this is not possible. What would be the best course of action to get her here. I was thinking attempting to get her a tourist visa and brining her here so we could meet. I understand that bringing her here on a tourist visa with the ''intention'' of marrying her is ''questionable''. So I can get her a tourist visa (How hard is this?) meet her here send her back home and then apply for a fiancee visa? I am just wondering the most efficient/quickest way to get her here. I also run my own business and have been told I can bring her on a work visa? Is this true? Just for the record I was bornn in the US and she lives in the phillipines.
