In Botswana, the minimum legal age for marriage is 21 years, although this can be lowered to 18 years with written consent from both parents or guardians. Again the issue of polygamous marriages. These are allowed, but each wife must have entered into the marriage with full knowledge of the other wives. There are similar rules in other African countries when you look at the US Embassy in Eritrea, US Embassy in Burkina Faso as well as US Embassy in Cameroon. If you are looking at a CR1 visa application then only the first wife will be eligible. See also the US Visa Financial Requirements.
