We’re extremely happy for you and your spouse! Mazal tov!

However, what are the practical lessons learned from this story?

To schedule your flight to the US for at least a week before the wedding (-in case something like this happens)?

To know what or what not to say to customs/immigration?

To get the proper documentation/permission before coming to the US to get married?

As they say, ain somchin al hanes!

#3 He *had* the documentation

A visa is not a guarantee of admission to the USA. There is NO WAY to guarantee admission in advance. None. EVERY alien who arrives in the USA is subject to the same risk of not being admitted. If you have the bad luck to run into a customs agent at the airport who wants to be disgusting, there’s nothing you can do about it. But nobody thinks it will happen to them. It usually doesn’t happen, so people forget that it can.

Indeed a beautiful story full of blessings and even more admirable the way that the new couple explains it. Beautiful! Mazel tov!!! As for your comments – Please, contain your loshon hora – don’t ruin it – or at least, think before your write! What does Brazil have to do with this?! Why should they be ashamed?!?! Brazil has NOTHING to do with this. The Chatan needed a US visa to enter the country (issued by the US goverment!) – obviously had one because he was allowed to board the plane to the US (the airline would not have allowed… Read more »
