Re: Requirements for an American, marrying his Peruvian fiancee

If she came to visit you in Jax then I assume she had a visitor visa so it would be best to marry in Peru then apply for a spousal visa because doing a fiancee visa right after visiting on a visitor visa would send up a major league red flag.
