IMBRA Law and the Loophole
I am not
going to get into this too deep. I am going to make this as simple as I
Here is the
lowdown on the IMBRA law.
IMBRA is a US
law for US citizens.
It states that
a person that
contacts another person (A man that contacts a woman) through a
marriage agency must first inform her about his personal info and
criminal record. That is all.
It is not for
any other man of any other nationality. It is nothing more than giving
your personal info before contacting her.
If you don't
fill out the
IMBRA form and want to marry a girl, (that you met at a marriage
agency) she won't be able to get a visa.
Men of other
do NOT have to do anything. Some agencies might ask you to, in order to
protect its girls, but it is nothing more than a formality. It means
nothing to any government other than the US.
The IMBRA law
All men hate it and it slows business for agencies. It was pushed
through congress at record speed and many senators or congressman had
no idea that they voted for it. Anybody who stands by it and fights
those that oppose it has a hidden agenda.
OK, here is how
US men can
go ahead and meet foreign women without having to worry about IMBRA.
(If the agency requires that you fill out the IMBRA form, you really
have no choice. And I also saw a web site that listed other ways of
loopholing IMBRA, so google it and see what you find. But here is my

when the immigration or INS person asks you how you met your foreign
bride (because they will then ask to see your IMBRA form if you met her
through a marriage agency), here is what

the street and the rest is history.
You don't need
girls that you meet outside of marriage agencies. Make up any story.
Like you met her here, there, anywhere.
Make sure you
with her beforehand because your stories must be the same. If she scres
up or tries to scam you (green card girl), and your stories are not the
same, she will never be given a visa.
Hey, maybe if
she later scams you, you can saw that you and she lied and she'll get

* Here is advice
with the immigration people (or at border crossings or the police., for
that matter) Guilty people talk too muchy. They try to prove themselves
as innocent, thus showing the authority that they are, in fact guilty.
When you are asked a question, answer it....don't offer more
explanations unless asked. "Where did you meet your fiancee?" You say,
"On the street." and NO more. If you are asked more questions, answer
them. But don't try to explain how you met on the street. (Unless
Here is a real
situation from real life (mine) to prove tis fact.
My buddy and I
went to LA many
years ago. We bought a ton of stuff. We could only bring back $300
worth of stuff each. We decided what we would declare and what we
wouldn't. I had about $250 worth of stuff. My buddy's total actually
came to $299. The border crossing official, upon returning to Canada
looked at his form and asked, "$299?" My buddy said, "Yup." and nothing
more. The official said, "OK, have a nice day."
If my buddy had
explain why he had only one dollar less than the alotted amount, the
offical would have brought us in the terminal and searched our stuff.
But a quick, concise answer doesn't look guilty. He let us on our way.
answer questions quickjly and shortly. Only offer more info when they
