Can't answer the 'living in US/gulf' questions, but I have a friend married to a Pakistani girl for many years living in india.

It used to be much more painful earlier -problems getting visas in India for other countries, problems with trips to Pakistan (she finally got an Indian passport, but both sets of authorities seemed paranoid) problems renewing passport and other such restricitons

I am told it is getting better- by how much, I dunno

Everything will be an official hassel.;) Do either or both of you have relitives in the US that could sponsor you? Once you are in the US and start working and save up enough money you will be able to sponsor her. The sooner you start the process the sooner it will be over. I think getting a visa is going to be a huge pain right now just about anywhere you go. Each country is different and you are perhaps aware of the difficulties of getting a visa to US or UAE. It will be a little more difficult right now because the economy is down and that has an effect on the number of projects countries are sponsoring (and therefor on jobs of course). It may actually prove not entirely difficult to get your wife a visa here in India but she will be more strongly monitered here then she might abroad.

The student visa into the US mostly won't be much of a problem. The problems will start when you get your H-1 and trying to find a company that can sponser you for your green card. From that point everything would be smooth sailing. I would say the economy will have more of an impact on your difficulties then your/your fiances nationality. I think in general, anyone from a muslim country will have more difficulties entering the US but obviously lots of people succeded. Your job opportunities will depend upon the field you are in. There are certain fields in the US where there just aren't enough US citizens to fill the jobs. A year from now thins will be much clearer. Obama talks about being very anti-outsourcing and immigration but the proof is in the pudding. Only once we see him in action will we know what direction the US will be headed for the next 4 years.

Ask around and look on line at the difference beween bringing your wife over on a fiance visa(I think it is called K-visa) and bringing her over after you are already married. You may find you will spend less time apart if you do the marriage in the US. I am no expert on this but you will find lots of people on line in other forums that have experience and can give you some pointers. You may have friends as well that may be of help but generally people online that answer your questions may have more recent expereince.

If I read correctly.. you are going now as a student and then work there after studies for 2 to 3 years before you plan to get married.. then there is a lot of time not to mention lot can change now and then.

As long as you are in good standing whether its student visa or work visa and can show that you can support your spouse its best if you get marrried outside US (current scenarios) and then get her into US. It may take a few months or just weeks if you are lucky to get her into US on F4 or H4 visa.. One thing about US is they work to keep the families together as long as you are on legal ground.

Good luck with your studies first.
