Aw, that’s awesome. I don’t know anything about applying for Visas etc, but good luck. 🙂 Welcome to the bee!

There are a bunch of people that are in the US on a Fiance Visa.  I hope some of the bees will help you.

Having delt with Visas a few times in my life I would definately suggest that you speak to an immagration lawyer in the US.  I think that Fiance Visa’s are not good for long.  I have a friend who had one and it only lasted for 6 months.  They ended up getting married in city hall just so that they would not have any more problems.  They had their wedding a year later.

Good Luck!  PS.  The middle east is super cool.  I am in Jordan now for the first time and it is a part of the world that I look forward to visiting again.

I think perhaps you could tell her that you have a “friend” who wishes to marry his Indian girlfriend and asks her how he should go about becoming engaged to her. Yes, this will give her a hint that it is actually you and that you want to marry her, but it will allow her to a) encourage or discourage you to move forward b) tell you exactly how she and her family would like engagement to take place. If this conversation comes as a big surprise to her she may not be prepared to answer, so you may have to ask for the “advice for your friend” a couple of times. Be aware and sensitive to the fact that she and her family may want a traditional wedding to take place in India. Contact a U.S. embassy and/or Immigrationa and Naturalizations Services for information on Visa etc.

I did a quick Google search and didn’t find any definitive guidelines for you, but maybe this will help. It is from Yahoo India Answers. Good luck to you!

And this I thougt was good advice: “You should ask her first unless it’s traditional and she expects you to ask the parents first. It’s discourteous to ‘go over her head’ if she’s not into doing it that way. If you are in relationship you should talk about this first. YOu don’t have to propose marriage to her if she expects it done the traditional way, but you can have a round about talk to gage how it would be best to approach this.”
