    Hi all

    I moved to Taiwan, met my girlfriend, and have been together for almost a year. We're looking to moving to the States together towards the end of 2019.

    I know there's a three step process to bring her back and living together that takes around a year, but we're hoping to reduce long distance relationship time as much as possible, ideally none. Aside from her getting a work or student visa, what are the options for us to stay together physically while we wait for the marriage visa / green card process? Can we start the process while in Taiwan? Or take a vacation in the States to get the process started and then wait in Taiwan?

    Thanks all

    She can apply for a potential visa at the US Embassy on Taiwan.

    The fact that you aren't married, that you're dating, has nothing to do with her potential immigration to the US.

    We're wondering if we should also get married here or there first, whichever is better.

    Also what's the name of the potential visa?

    Thanks for the response so far

    Marrying her won't significantly improve her chances of immigrating to the US.

    It will, however, tie you to her for DECADES even if the marriage were to end in divorce should you get involved in sponsoring her immigration.

    You and She might wish to discuss this with an immigration lawyer.

    Providing you with various visa names won't improve her chances of obtaining one.

    I've posted here hoping someone with experience could give any advice for eliminating separation while waiting for immigration/residency to the US.

    If any member does, please let me know, thanks again
