Magic visas for online Russian brides
By Irina Sbitneva
Today I received a letter from one of my website visitors.
girlfriend asked him to help her (financially) to obtain a
visa to visit him in America. This man wrote to me that she (he met her
online through a free dating site) had found a local travel agency who
could help her fast with a visa, but for this 'fast process' she needed
more money then she already gave this agency from all her savings and she
asked her American
friend to help her. Thank god this man felt a little bit
uncomfortable about this and he decided to verify if this could be true.
For that reason he found my web site and asked my advise and opinion.
Russian girls or women (most of them are young, in the twenties) can be
very convincing that they 'honestly' can get a visa to visit you, with the
help of a local agency they
personal know. She tries to explain you that they can
arrange such magic visas using 'special' ways. But, of course, these visas
costs more than the formal visas you apply at the US Embassy.
Well, to unravel this big secret about magic visas, they just don't
exists! No matter these young, Russian girls are telling you, it is simply
not possible to get an US visa just to visit you in your country.
The main (US) visa types you have are: tourist, business, student,
working, K3-spouse and K1-Fiancee visas. Some of these Russian beauties
are trying to convince you that they can get a student visa. But also this
type of visa is difficult to get and you need to accomplish a specific
procedure to apply for such a visa. Beside that, you need the support of
an US sponsor or official reference. Same counts for business and working
visas. To receive a tourist visa is only available for a specific group of
people, but certainly not for a single, young, beautiful Russian woman who
wants to visit her friend in the US.
To give you an example of one of the visa
website US Embassy, Moscow)
Q: How do I qualify for a U.S.
A: A qualified applicant for a U.S.
non-immigrant visa is able to demonstrate binding social, familial, and/or
economic ties to Russia which, in the opinion of the consular officer,
constitute a compelling need to return to Russia after a temporary visit
to the United States. Section 214(b) of the U.S. Immigration and
Nationality Act requires a consular officer to presume that a visa
applicant intends to immigrate to the United States until the applicant
provides sufficient evidence to the contrary. For more information,
please see the section on supporting documents that can accompany a visa
Short but to the point, the Consular
officer presumes your Russian girlfriend wants to immigrate to the US, in
this case she has to proof that she will return to Russia after her visit.
So, your single, young beautiful looking Russian girlfriend with just a
regular job (or even not having a job), who wants to visit you (as a
possible future bride) in the US will have a difficult time at the US
Embassy to convince the Consular officer that she indeed will come back. I
can already give you the results of that interview, can you?
But now you probably will ask, what is the proper way if you indeed have a
serious relationship with a Russian woman and you both have decided to
stay with each other with the intention to marry?
In this case she has to apply for a so-called K1-Fiancee visa, which is an
immigrant visa. Just type in any search engine the keywords "k1 fiancée
visa" and you will find a lot of information, I suggest you start at the
website of the US Embassy in Moscow (see above). The most important work
both have to do, before applying a K1-fiancee visa, is that from day one
both have to keep all evidence that you have a serious relationship, like
email or letter correspondence, photos where both of you are exposed,
phone-bills (to Russia and vice versa), airline tickets, accommodation
bills, your visa and other documents which proofs that you have been in
Russia to meet her, etc. Just keep any ticket, any bill, any paper, any
document that will show you both have met each other or that you have
visited Russia (or Ukraine or other East European country). Especially the
proof (photos, documents with two names) that you were 'together' is
essential to convince the Consular officer that the relationship is 'real'
and not for the reason to create a sham marriage (for green card
The official requirements and documents both need are available at many
K1-fiancee visa service and support websites, including the website of the
US Embassy in Moscow.
Remember that if she will be approved for a K1-fiancee visa, that you have
to marry each other within 90 days, if not, she has to go back to her
country, she definitely can't stay after these 90 days if you both have
decided not to marry each other.
So, why are these easy-to-catch Russian
girls convincing you that they have possibilities (they even confess you
sometimes with a wink that their methods are not the formal way) to get a
visa to visit you?
In one word? 'money'! These girls are pretty good trained to wrap you up
with their magic. They write you very nice (but impersonal) letters with
sweet words, they send you photos of a real beautiful young Russian girl,
even when she is 23 and you are 42, no problem, they prefer to have a man
with 'experience' at least that's what they tell you. They explain you how
different American men are with Russian men, they explain you that 'looks'
is not important at all, they already fall in love with you after 5 or 6
letters (emails) and you know what? Many men do believe them! Therefore it
is not difficult for these girls that they can't wait to meet you and want
to visit you (in your country of course), but needs a little help form you
to get that magic visa. And of course you will help her, the sooner she
can come the better and you already are fantasizing what your friends will
say when they will meet your Russian knock-out, isn't it?

So my dear reader, don't believe in such fairy tails because magic visas
are not existing. And don't even think to engage yourself to illegal
methods to apply for a visa, it will not work and if they find out, you
will be banned for life by the US authorities concerning visas and
The right way is to suggest her to meet her in her country. Never send any
money or do not send expensive gifts. Some flowers is ok, but that's it,
do not exaggerate. Keep you financial arrangements in own control and use
only save paying methods. If you need to pay a hotel or apartment in
Moscow (or wherever), do the payment by yourself, never send money and let
her do it!
