None of the tourist visas are technically supposed to be used to wait out a partner visa, but people use them that way without issue all the time. If asked, though, you're not just planning to wait out a partner visa... you're going there to do touristy thing with your partner, and you have examples of that planned/brochures or printouts of touristy things in your bag.

Oh, and wait time counts from when you hit the "submit" button.

You always make the stress levels decrease, CG. Thanks.

I suppose this means I should not, in the "Why are you applying for this VISA" section say, "To canoodle further with my ball and chain"? I had been going to put, "Travel and visiting relatives," so hopefully that's cool. Makes me really nervous to apply for it regardless. I'm only asking for the extension for another 7 months (<--- Unless you have any other insight on a good period...?), so hopefully they won't view that as a black mark on my 309 application. It wouldn't overwrite it, would it, if it got granted?

And, huzzah on the "Submit" button date! That means I'm 3.5 months down! But I still don't have a CO... ;_;

12 to 15 months for D.C. now??? Unbelievable as if the stress level isn't killing me enough. It seems like the longer I have the wait the more things that occur from keeping me from getting there. Time to start a riot lol.

Aw, thanks so much! What a sweet compliment.

Yeah, Travel and visiting relatives is just fine. Don't be nervous - quite honestly, from the US, generally tourist visas are not a problem unless you're way overusing them, which you aren't. It won't be a black mark, even if denied, and it won't affect your partner visa application in ANY way, promise. Hang in there! You'll get there.

I really do hope that the people who applied April/May get assigned their CO or approved soon otherwise what hope do the people have that applied in the last few months Ughhhhh I wish it wasnt so friggin stressful, I wish we could just fly to Washington to have a meeting and get it approved that way! Would be so much easier

Heard from our CO on 9th of January. They have recommended we apply for the BC100 if we have enough evidence. Hopefully see an approval this or next month!

Next time I will see my partner will be 11th of March.
