Q. Can a foreign citizen enter on visa waiver, marry a US citizen and immediately return to country of origin to apply GC?
A: I agree with Mr. Dixler. The visa waiver program entitles persons from select countries to enter the US without a visa for tourism or business reasons for a limited period of time. You are intending to use that visa waiver privilege to get married. This strategy may in the discretion of an immigration officer at the border or at a future interview appointment, be considered immigration fraud. You should hire experienced immigration counsel to review all the facts and arrive at a solution that is the most ethical pathway to achieve your goal.
