lilybo 10 Nov 2009 #1I am an American with a Polish boyfriend. We have been living together in South America where we met for about three years. I would very much like him to come to the US to meet my family and friends before we think about marriage. He has been living in South America for three years as a "tourist" i.e. we cross a border every 90 days. Prior to living in South America his last job and place of residence was in the US for almost seven years where he had a work visa and was trying to get residency without success. He has money in savings (over $10,000) and owns a small apartment property in Poland but is unmarried and without kids and without a job in Poland. Plus has been living long term without residency in another country for the last three years and has shown an interest in living and working in the US from his previous attempts to win residency through his work visa. It seems from what I have read on other threads that our situation is a bit hopeless as he is a perfect candidate for an illegal overstay, though he has never broken any rules and has always pursued the proper avenues. Is there in hope in applying for a tourist or fiancee visa? Will it likely be a time-consuming heart-breaking financial drain for both of us? Any advice?
