So, are there a limited number of visas that get approved for Russians to come here? Is that why we go there to meet them instead of them here? What about other FSU countries? Ukraine, Kazakstan, etc... Why couldn't one of the ladies just say they are touring the US for a couple of weeks? Would they not be approved? Thanks...
If it works the same way as with UK authorities they would question where her finances are from to allow her such a trip. As soon as they get a sniff that there's a resident man involved it's game over for not being up front and honest in the first place.
Visitor visas are non-immigrant, non-petitioned visas. An alien must prove strong ties to his or her country of residence, which will compel him or her to return back to that country. Strong ties could be marital family staying behind, own real estate, a good job, own business, etc. Since most youth lack such, it is harder for them to get visitor visas to the US. This is where fiance(e) visas come in, but so far I've only told you "the wonderful words", because the system is so corrupt that just about any visa can be denied at whim.
Thank God the system is so corrupt! Corrupt enough to keep a woman like Amirs out of the US after the goof follows her to her new home married to another guy after giving up so easily on Amir. Hmmm. Yep that consulate was really stupid and real corrupt.
Also I just slipped the interviewer 100 grivnas and he only asked my wife one question.
I'm still looking in the constitution of the United States where it is a right for a petitioner to have a foreign fiancee. Oops that must have been under Federalist 46.
Can't believe there are such a-holes on this forum as one above.
I graduated from university and had hard time finding a job. After a year of tough luck, I consulated my university's advisor. He suggested I change my name. Guess, I was too slow to realize that he meant changing to a complete English name rather than just adopting a 4-letter first name.
Olga was told that visa was denied because I had failed to disclose my first name change to her, an irremediable made-up reason for visa denial. Since disclosure didn't take place prior to the visa interview, matter couldn't be resolved for all eternity. We knew no better.
Nasfan you sound like a federalist 69. ok, amir, let all rednecks communion on one side and we unite on the other. it may be that the system is not corrupt. it's simply racist. it is fair to whites, which is why they find it fair and defend it. it is abusive to others, which is why they hate it. it's that simple.
Its GOT to be racism right? Everything that doesn't work out the way certain people want it MUST be racist.
Reminds me of a Chris Rock routine. He talked of visiting a grocery store with his father (or uncle) and noticing that BLACK olives were mostly sold in tin cans while OTHER olives were sold in classier clear jars. Trying to keep the black olives down. Olive growers are racist too.

You Two clowns make me laugh. Throughing your college degrees around as if the world should bend over and kiss your ass because you have one. Agreed when things go wrong, it's always racism. What a bunch of bullshit. College degrees are so watered down now it's not a big deal. You still have to earn your stripes boys.
I'll give you an example of racism. A guy gets out of the military. He worked his ass off and served his country. So he wants to become a State Police officer. He's dreamed about doing this as a kid. So he fills out an application, takes the physical exams and psychological battery exams, scores high as hell. He is called 6 weeks later to come in for an interview. Meets a Lieutenant who tells him, damn I see you have been reccomended by 3 other State troopers. Well I have this problem, it's call the three S's. You aren't a spook, a spic or a split tail, so at this moment in time our push is there. He said I would hire you in a minute if I could, he was an Ex navy guy. The interviewer was black and the applicant was white. I will always respect Lt. Boone for telling me the truth. I didn't stand out on a street corner and cry like you two babys. Oh it's racism, it's racism. It's life idiots plain and simple. Now if that would have been done in the reverse every guy from Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would have been on the street corner blowing their horns. But in this case it happened to a white guy. He deserved it because he was white.
There was no media, no hoopla. I got up and shook the mans hand and thanked him for his candor. I tried again a year later and it was the same agenda. This was over 26 years ago so take you crying butts and tell your story walking. Your racism cries fall on deaf years now. Couldn't you see the bitching if there was a white anglo saxon caucus in the house of representatives, or how about WET, white entertainmet television. Or how about KNN, the Klan News network right next to CNN on your TV dial. The race playing field has been more than leveled.
Amir, if you didn't disclose your name change to your future wife, common sense would dictate you had no relationship, not a close one if she didn't know you had a name change. Go try to scam someone else you anal rententive moron. You tried to be slick and smarter than someone else with your college degree and got your ass busted. And there you couldn't use racism, because you tried to be slick and cute. I'll bet you went one time to see her maybe, then with your arrogance, well I'm going to take this beautiful woman away from this world of poverty. Ooops it ain't that easy is it fella, especially when you're not upfront and honest. They asked my wife how many times I was married and divorced and what where my childrens names. Gee she knew that. She even knew where I banked at because I had a relationship. I think a name change is nothing you would forget to tell her because of this racist world. I'm sure she hit it right. It must have been something you did. Like trying to be smarter than the system
Now today, I earn three times the salary of a state trooper, I got my degree and I took entry level jobs after I got my degree. It opened doors, but you still started at the bottom. You guys think because you got that idiot skin the corporate world should open all the doors for you. You two make me laugh. You two and Dr.Koop out to go looking for the black helicopters and whine how the consulates are so unconstitutional.
Nasfan, you must be blind or stupid if you don't see the ameriacn redneckry involved in our visa denials.
In cases of illegal fiancee and wife visa denials, you are not simply denying a visa; you are denying an opportunity to a constructive, stable, productive and natural life.
Amir has his own conclusions, but i think that our visa denials revolved around one americn concept: "Races cannot mix."
Did I ever tell you when i was roommates with a fat sheila, 19, a nursing student at community college, with a 2 y.o. boy. she had another one at 16, who got adopted in alaska. she sold blood to buy diapers. her whole family was on welfare. even her own father (sam elliot look-alike) was after her sexually. her younger sister, 16, slept in her living room over the weekends, sleeping with different tatooed working men in their 20's; but just when you thought they were discretion-less, think again. they were hardcore believers in that "races cannot mix." so when it came to me, she fixed me up with a mexican girl.
Yeah you told all of us about the fat Sheila. Who cares. It's all racist remember. I'm neither blind or stupid. I see the crap daily. You "think" your denials revolve around races can't mix. You can't prove it. It's not what you know Sergey, it's what you can prove. So if you were some great character of any moral terptitude, why was fat sheila fixing you up with anybody?
So if America is so racist and so shit. Pack your bags and move to Ukraine or somewhere over there, then tell me all about racism. You guys bitch and whine here, because you can.
Over there no one would give a shit.
You guys probably screwed up something in the visa process, contrary to Dr. Koop and you fiance visa's are not guaranteed nor are they a right. Amir neglected to tell his future wife he changed his name. What kind of relationship can one have if your future wife doesn't know you changed your name. You must be blind or stupid.
What a joke. Denying a Visa you're denying an opportunity to a constructive,stable,productive and natural life? What manual did you get those talking points from? Please Sergey grow a brain. Where does that deny you anything? First of all opportunity does not mean guarantee. Maybe break out the Websters and use that high powered electrial engineering degree and learn a definition to a new word.
I think you explaining about living in the above environment with the fat sheila, is all one needs to know. You guys think this country owes you something, It should hand you your every whim. This country owes you nothing. You owe it everything for your opportunity to live here. Living here does not offer you a quarantee to anything. Especially a wife from a foreign country.
So contort the constitution, Race bait and whine you have that right. Doesn't mean though that someone isn't going to take the opportunity to tell you that you are full of shit.
I assume nasfan that you have the brains to understand basic human interactions. You meet a girl, who likes cats (example), but you prefer dogs (example). you want to be with this girl, so you pretend to like cats, because if you outright tell her otherwise, she'll be history. remember, you just met.
Now, let the relationship mature a little, and although she still doesn't like dogs, she may like you enough to make this sacrifice. It's only a fiance-fiancee relationship at this time. Two folks writing long-distance, who have met only once or twice. Let her come to you, let the relationship bond and grow stronger, then you can tell her more neagtives about yourself.
What part of the following do you not understand?
"9. The report (petition revocation memorandum accompanying petition return) must be comprehensive, clearly showing FACTUAL AND CONCRETE reasons for revocation. The report (memo) must be well reasoned and analytical rather than conclusory. OBSERVATIONS MADE BY THE CONSULAR OFFICER CANNOT BE CONCLUSIVE, SPECULATIVE, EQUIVOCAL OR IRRELEVANT. "The criteria cited in this note derive from the Board of Immigration Appeals case, Matter of Arias, in which the Board determined that the memorandum supporting a petition return did not constitute "good and sufficient cause" for petition revocation, because it consisted of "observations of the consular officer that are conclusory, speculative, equivocal, or irrelevant to the bona fides of the claimed relationship".
Once reasons for visa denial aren't legal, it doesn't matter what they are because when **it hits the fan, lowliness often gets disguised as holiness.
Each department has it's own Inspector General (a bureaucratic black hole), but in federal courts, the Federal Torts Claim Act (FTCA) is the only exemption to sovereign immunity, and FTCA does NOT cover deliberate acts (sorry to tell you this amar).
On rights you want to go to Bill of Rights "life, liberty and pursuit of happiness" or something more practical, such as laws and regulations? If jetmba, nasfan and other whites can bring their fiancees over, so should we be able to.
First of all Sergey, I see you flunked Government and Economics class. That phrase you stated is from the declaration of independence. Also your racist statement is classy. Go on and keep buying into Dr. Koops bullshit. He can rant on Bevins and all other horseshit but there are no provisions or constitutional guarantees for granting visas to anyone. Let alone idiots that try to circumvent the system. Let alone what Dr. Koop mostly surmises are on immigrant visa's. Since a K1 is not an immigrant visa it holds little water.
Dr. Koop stick to your medical practice, because your henhouse lawyering is full of crap. Try this on Dr. Koop, if it is so unconstitutional cite the violation and reference the amendment if violates? Like Roe V. Wade, that should be left to the states to decide, it is their rights under the 9th and 10th amendments.
Again, clowns like you can make racist statements and its all okay. You're a bozo and a loser and if the truth came out you probably pulled the same type of crap Amir the 38 year old asian at the time did. Lied and wasn't forth coming.
To give you an idea of office of the IG's, drop HSS Harry Truman into it and never hear a sound.
Immigrant and non-immigrant visas are a poor terminology. You have 23-year veteran USDOD officials who will go on describing that H, E, L, etc., etc. visas are non-reviewable and K, etc., etc. visas are reviewable; and in their careers it never occured to them that all they really and simply needed to say was that all petitioned visas are reviewable and all non-petitioned visas are non-reviewable.
I believe Amar's petition was re-approved by the DHS/ CIS, which is another proof that his visa denial was illegal. Here petition adjudication process was used probably only to break up an undesirable relationship.
