Jon Walters

Jon Walters Biography

Rachel Bear was a 33-year-old from Albuquerque, New Mexico, when she became acquainted with Jon Walters, a 34-year-old from England, for the first time singing karaoke on an app.

Jon and Rachel were first introduced to fans on Season 2 of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days, but the pair had already established a relationship through video chatting and phone calls.

Rachel was pregnant at the time, and Jon couldn't wait to be a part of the child's life.

The pair met for the first time in England in late 2017 after getting to know each other from different countries for a year-and-a-half.

90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days' second season documented Rachel and Jon meeting, getting engaged and tying the knot in May 2018, but Jon's criminal past has prevented him from relocating to the United States with ease.

Jon explained on the 90 Day Fiance spinoff there are numerous assault charges and five convictions under his belt from younger years when he would get into physical fights with people.

Rachel and Jon announced in March 2019 that they had finally saved enough money, $11,000, to begin the visa process and eventually reunite their family.

In May 2019, Rachel and Jon also reunited in the U.K. and celebrated their wedding anniversary.

"Happy 1 year wedding anniversary to me and my baby. I love you @jonjwalters -- It's good to be back," Rachel captioned an Instagram photo.

Rachel and Jon are documenting their reunion and love story for fans on their new YouTube Channel.

When a fan asked Rachel and Jon during a recent Q&A session on Instagram Stories whether they'd ever appear on a future season of 90 Day Fiance, they replied, "A happily married couple doesn't make great TV. It makes even worse TV if they are just working and saving for a visa."

"Maybe in the future," they continued, "Until then, subscribe to our YouTube."

Rachel and Jon added it would be "boring" for people to watch them on 90 Day Fiance given there is no baby, engagement or wedding storyline to share.

In December 2019, Jon revealed the couple had finally had submitted Jon's spousal-visa application when commenting on one of Rachel's Instagram photos.

"Where does his visa stand? [Were] you able to save up the $11,000?" a follower asked Rachel.

Jon then commented, "Yes we did," and added, "Our visa application is in -- it's a long wait now, but the hard part is over. Thanks for asking."

In August 2021, Rachel and Jon announced Jon finally had his interview for a spousal visa -- which they had filed an application for three years earlier -- but Jon had been denied a visa due to a criminal conviction on his record.

"When I went to the embassy, I took a load of paperwork, I took everything I thought I would need and I thought I would have the opportunity to ask for forgiveness. However, the lovely guy who was working at the embassy said, 'Unfortunately, I don't have the authority to give a visa to anyone with a criminal conviction,'" Jon recalled in an Instagram Live session.

However, neither Jon or Rachel was surprised, and they both said they had anticipated the outcome.

The couple had therefore already filled out a waiver application and pre-paid a lawyer.

After Jon wasn't granted his visa, the pair's lawyer submitted the waiver application, which consisted of 200 pages and cost $930 in filing fees.

"So now, we definitely have the final stretch between now and six to nine months," added Jon, who apparently received a receipt for the submission very quickly.
