The short answer is that you must meet her in person to exchange contact information, which if you are using this site should be your objective. Due to US law (International Marriage Broker Regulation Act (IMBRA)), governing Foreign Introduction Agencies, we are restricted by the Federal Government in releasing any contact information until certain conditions are met. One of those is that she must see and sign your personal IMBRA form, which we complete, translate, process, and store for you when you meet. Without this form being completed correctly your fiancee visa may be denied. We correctly process the IMBRA forms for all the women you meet during any group tour and/or any type of individual meeting. We also confirm your identity, and conduct a sex offender background check, in addition to the completed IMBRA form. The communication on the site is meant to facilitate you meeting her at which point you will be free to exchange any personal contact information if both parties so desire, which is normally the case.
In addition to the requirements of IMBRA there are additional issues relating to safety and other concerns as to why we do not exchange contact information until you meet. For more information please see below:
Since 1995 AFA has successfully served the International Singles community by providing a premium safe and comprehensive introduction and relationship building service. There a multitude of International dating sites available for singles, all with varying degrees of service, safety and success. AFA, being the leader in the industry, has always strived to provide a complete, safe, and comprehensive service for those men and women truly interested in actually meeting each other for real relationships as opposed to virtual relationships where the two individuals rarely meet. To that end, AFA is the only service that offers a variety of options ranging from Individual options such as the Asian, Latin, and Euro clubs, One on One Introductions, and the Executive Service. Additionally we offer our most popular option, the Group Tours. All these options are designed to allow you to meet as many women as possible; including the one(s) you have built prior relationships with using the service. AFA is not intended to be a Pen Pal or virtual relationship service. The women profiled here have expressed a serious interest in actually meeting men with whom they can build a safe and rewarding life.
Due to safety concerns and IMBRA regulations, the exchange of personal contact information is severely restricted unless or until you meet in person via any of the vehicles mentioned above. The women have many on- line options; they choose us because they know our reputation over the last two decades as a Premium International dating service. They understand that the Matchmakers at our various offices and affiliates will assist them throughout the entire process with communication, translation, in person meetings, advice, etc., while keeping personal details and contacts private until they are sure they wish to meet. Often this support continues even after they are married if they need advice or any type of support. They receive much more personalized service and support then they would on any other site. At the same time, due to the time and resources necessary to provide such services, we are very selective as to which women we place on the site, placing only those we feel will ultimately be successful in their search, based on several factors. Unfortunately, in the past when we did release the women's personal contact information to individuals she had not yet met we received many complaints from women concerning harassment and or inappropriate sexual behavior/photos, primarily from men who never had any serious intention of meeting in person. Unfortunately, as a result of such issues many women requested to remove their profiles from the site, making it more difficult for the men who were serious to find their perfect match. Those issues still occur on many other sites, which is why women who are serious trust AFA and the safety and convenience of the comprehensive service they receive, which in turn enables us to present these women to you as viable candidates for serious relationships that may lead to marriage.
In virtually all cases once you meet the woman or women in person and they know you are real and have an interest they will release their personal contact information to you. Many may still use the service from time to time even after exchanging contact information for ease of communication and translation services, but also keep direct contact.
