Citizenship though marriage, how do I enter the EU or US?
To enter the EU or or the US you have to set up a plan before you get married. The process is similar for visas and citizenship in both Europe and the US. Just because you are married to a citizen, does not mean anything. Just because you have the intention of marrying a citizen it also does not mean anything. Disclaimer, I am not an immigration lawyer some anything written here is nothing more than what I know, which could be wrong.
I have a dual citizenship. I got this citizenship based on jus soli in the USA and in the EU by jus sanguinis not citizenship though marriage, however, I am married. I do know something about these things as my friends and I have all gone through some parts of the process personally.
As a general statement the most important things is the marriage licenses. Everything else, temporary visas etc can be worked out. They are just paperwork and nothing to be afraid of or intimidated by, do not be scared. Go to the embassy and get the facts and the documents. If you love someone you can do paperwork, do not complain about the process or think they are unfair. The law is the law for everyone and we all need to abide by the law and the process. If you need help get a lawyer to help you.
- You need to file a K-1 fiance visa to enter into the U.S. to marry a U.S. citizen. Your United states citizen fiance needs to file Form I-129F.
- In the EU the process is the same but the forms are different for each country, therefore I do not list them, they are basically a fiance visa, every country has one.
- My point is nothing is automatic, it needs to be approved though an immigration application for a visa. These visas are temporary. If your marriage is real then do not worry. If it is false you are subject to arrest.
Can I apply for a US or EU green card before getting married?
No, marriage documents must be translated and presented and given in addition to birth and other vital documents before you can apply for a visa for the US or the EU. Therefore, green card visa or citizenship by marriage requires a series of applications processes that all start with a valid marriage certificate to a citizen of the country you want to enter.
How long is the non immigrant visa good for?
A non-immigrant visa that is valid for the waiting period, however, in some countries in Europe that are trying to restrict false marriages for citizenship, I have herd that the non immigrant visa is shorter than needed.
How soon can I work after I get my green card application which I got by marriage?
In the USA about 90 days after a partition has been filed. The EU it depends on the country.
Green cards though marriage are only temporary?
Yes, there is a trial period. Further, you are not a citizen and do not have the full rights of a citizen. If say after two years they find the marriage was not in good faith then they can deport you or arrest you.
The good news is there is rarely an language requirement for citizenship in most countries. If you have a real marriage, and they check your neibhoors etc, then you have nothing to worry about.
Is citizenship by marriage permanent
Yes unless you lied on your application, in which case you can be deported or arrested. Once you are a citizen you are a naturalized citizen though marriage.
The whole process in the US is faster than the EU. The EU could take ten plus years, in the US I think about five years or less. Why the difference? Because of the bureaucratic processes and different complex laws. The US has more immigration lawyers I think who know how to work the system. In Europe there is sometimes no way to speed up the process as the government works slower. Even if the laws on the books say one thing, the processes are so back logged it might take forever.
How hard is marriage?
Easy, both the process and being married. The process, you can get married in Vegas in a wedding chapel with just your passports basically as the marriage licenses in some states are easy.
Being married is a lot of fun. But if you are an egotistical person or can not humble yourself to your love, than why get married? You will only cause the both of you unhappiness. However, if you have humility and submissiveness in your heart than marriage will be fun. You need to submit the ‘I’ to the ‘us’. No exceptions to this rule or law of marriage.
My thoughts on citizenship by marriage
I believe in marriage. I believe to get married and have a family is a gift.
One of the rewards of falling in love with someone from another country is a dual citizenship. However, this should never ever come into play in the love equation. However, I know many international couples and they are very happy, I am one of them. I and my wife in our hearts are truly deeply in love and will stay together our whole lives no matter what or where we live. It does not matter, rich or poor or anything. Marriage is about love.
False marriage for citizenship is a sin. Why would you sell you self for a citizenship. Why would you pay someone to try to get married for a citizenship to the EU or US? You might say oh, it is for work or a job, but that translates to money. You are lying for money. To lie is against the law and God’s law. Therefore, call it like it is, you sell your body for money. You lie to get a citizenship by marriage.
I understand life is hard. I really do. However, marriage is sacred. If you are so clever, use your creative talents in a positive way, rather than a criminal way.
I believe if you are smart you can make money almost anywhere you live. You must have the right attitude and believe in yourself.
Many lives I have heard of lives destroyed by citizenship by marriage. I knew one girl who I think got married for a US citizenship. Her false husband used her and destroyed her life. I have herd of other girls who when the guy got citizenship though marriage the guy disappear and the girls could not get divorced, therefore could not get remarried.
I have herd of women that play also, and get assets and attachment of wages on the man’s income for is money.
I have a few other posts that pertain to citizenship mostly to the EU. I invite you to look through these as there is a lot of information in these posts in a question and answer format in the comments section. If you do leave a comment I will try to answer it but this advise is not legal, rather just for fun. However, on any comments please use proper punctuation and grammar on my citizenship through marriage post, thank you.
