I am a US citizen, contemplating marriage with a Filipina widow of a German citizen. She lives in Germany and has two minor children who are German citizens. Our intention is to live in Germany until the children reach the age of maturity (in five years). I have completed an application to reside in Germany.
I want to bring her here to visit my family and marry here as well. It is far easier to marry here than in Germany.
I sent an email to the US Embassy in Germany and got a response that did not address my question.
Obtaining a tourist visa for a Filipino is very difficult. If she can be granted entry based on her German residency it would help very much.
