What to do....help me please
« on: June 30, 2009, 02:54:19 PM »
I am going to the Philippines to marry, Do I have to have a return ticket, and at what point can I bring my new wife back to the US to meet my family? Does anyone have all the ins and outs about the what, when and wheres?

Thanks for any help that you can offer

Don,

If you marry in the RP you\'ll need to file for a K3 visa to bring your wife into the US. 

http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.5af9bb95919f35e66f614176543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=e648dca113260210VgnVCM1000004718190aRCRD&vgnextchannel=4f719c7755cb9010VgnVCM10000045f3d6a1RCRD

Don\'t expect this to happen quickly.  By that I mean, don\'t expect to get married and be able to return with your new wife in just a couple of months.  Ain\'t gonna happen.

You never need a \"return\" ticket when you go to the RP.  But you will need an \"ongoing\" ticket.  As long as you have a ticket that takes you anywhere out of the RP, you\'re good to go.
