Can my boyfriend get a seaman's visa? 1 Answers as of May 16, 2011

My boyfriend works on a cruise ship and is home in Central America on vacation. He is coming into the United States on his Crewman's C1/D Visa to do his next contract with the cruise line on May 28. Can he fly into the United States a few days before to visit me before meeting the ship on May 28? If so, is there a limit on the number of days he can enter the U.S. on the Visa before joining the ship?

If the visa allows him to land in the city where he departs from prior to the 28th May, then fine. Otherwise no.
