Q: If my gf comes from Dominican Republic when they open their borders with her active B-2 visa, can I marry her to stay?
I am a US citizen, and we know for some time now, if we continue to have the nice relationship we have so far the idea could be getting married and asking for a status change for her to be able to work and stay here legally.
A: Yes, as long she doesn't say that she is going to get married before she comes in. Wait for 90 days after she arrives before getting married. The B-2 visa is only for visiting and not for immigrating.
Ify Princess Ikeakanam agrees with this answer
A: If the intent is to only visit when she enters with her B2 but then after remaining here for a length of time she decides to get married and live here permanently, then yes she could do that. But as the other poster stated do not get married until at least after 90 days of her arrival.
