Can someone get a marriage visa without going back to their home country? 3 Answers as of July 01, 2011I am a US citizen and I have been involved with an New Zealand citizen online and have met in person. He is coming to the US this summer to visit me, and if things go well we would like to get married. If possible, we would like to do this without him having to leave the country again. If he comes here on a visitor visa, would this be possible? We would like to know the best course of action to take.

He will not be eligible to obtain a green card in the US, but is eligible to consular process for the green card. If a person enters the US on a visitor visa or waiver program with the intention to remain in the US and apply for residency, this is visa fraud/misrepresentation and will lead to a visa denial and removal from the US.
