AM I ELIGIBLE FOR A FIANCÉ VISA?
A fiancé visa, also known as a K-1 visa, is available to U.S. citizens seeking to bring their foreign, non-citizen fiancé into the country. It is common for the U.S. citizen to petition for the visa on behalf of their partner.
If you are petitioning for your fiancé, there are certain qualifications to expect:
- You must be a U.S. Citizen
- That you intend to be married within 90 days
- Both parties are free to marry
- You met in person at least once within the last two years
If you successfully attain a K-1, the visa only allows your partner to enter the U.S. for 90 days. This is a small window of time, so most couples make arrangements for the wedding to occur right away. Make your wedding plans flexible, since it isn’t clear how long it will take to get the visa.
