The link no longer works.  Too bad as I'd like some recipes for Mexican dishes.

If an american marries a Mexican in Mexico and wants to continue to live in Mexico for the time being. What is the best way to get the Mexican a visa? Some people say to get a K1 fiance visa because it is easier. But people say that you are required to live in the US after that. Some people say to just apply for a B1/B2 Temporary Visitor visa, but the nay sayers claim that it makes trying to convert it to a green card a nightmare down the road. 


Also, much like government offices in TJ, all of this stuff is subject to change at all times and largely has to do with whoever is reviewing the application. 


Anyone have recent experience with a situation like this?

I've had several friends go though this.


1.  Do NOT get a fiancee visa if you do not want to move to the US.  You have to get married within 90 days and live in the US until she has a change of status, which will take months.


2.  There is a spousal visa (its somemwhat new and I forget the number) for those who are married where the spouse receives a green card at the same time she gets her visa.  It takes longer to get than the financee visa.


3.  Legally what she should get is a tourist visa.  I have never heard of a tourist visa being an impediment to a person later getting either a financee or spousal visa.

While not an all night place, I believe COSTCO in Tijuana has some beneifts:

  • 80p (about $6.00) to mount, blanace, and fill a tire with nitrogen
  • Free repairs on flats


Next time I buy a new or decent used tire I think I will have COSTCO install it. 


BTW, a US COSTCO card is valid in Mexico as is a Mexican card in the US.
