I am Brazilian and my fiancée is American. He has a valid tourist visa and is coming to Brazil next month for an extended stay. We planned on getting married shortly after he gets here, and apply for his VIPER. I have some doubts regarding basic rights. Does he need to wait for the VIPER to be able to do certain things, such as open a bank account, buy health insurance, have his belongings shipped to Brazil, etc.
Also, I read in previous posts that while the VIPER is being processed the applicant cannot leave the country for more than 90 days at a time. Is this an absolute rule? If he needs to leave a few months after the wedding and stay in the US for more than 90 days, would we lose the entire process? Would it be relevant for PF if I spent part of this time with him in the US?
Thank you very much for your help!
