- I'm going to visit my fiancee in the USA for 16 days next month. We got engaged last time I was over in May 2019. Now, we still use the term boyfriend/girlfriend (don't know exactly why, just do. Dislike the fiance/e term!). Upon immigration, should I explain I'm visiting a girlfriend, or a fiancee, once they ask the purpose of my visit? I don't know whether to just point out that although we're engaged I still refer to her as my girlfriend.
We're marrying in the States later this year then applying for a UK Spousal Visa afterwards with intent on moving to the UK. I am employed there and have a good job.
- On a related note, if I'm admitted to the USA, I'm going to pay for her flight to come back to the UK with me in early August so we can fly back together. Now that American citizens can use ePassport gates at UK airports, would the fact she was refused entry last time prevent her from using one of these automated points? She has since applied for a standard visitor visa and received it last month.
Additionally, am I able to stand with her in the non-EU immigration line, or should I just use the British citizens line and wait for her on the other side?
