United States Fiancée/Fiancé Visa (K1 Visa)
K1 Fiancée and Fiancé Visa Information: The K1 Visa, also known as the K1 Fiancée Visa, may be used by United States citizens who wish to bring their prospective husbands or wives to the United States with the intention of getting married. Minor children of fiancées can also accompany them to the United States as they can be issued K2 Visas. The U.S. citizen must file a petition with the USCIS on behalf of the foreign fiancé(e). After the petition is approved, the fiancé(e) can obtain a K1 Fiancé Visa. The K1 Visa is issued at a U.S. embassy or consulate abroad. The marriage must take place within 90 days of the fiancé(e) entering the United States.
Fiancée and Fiancé Definition: Individuals for whom English is not a native language can sometimes get confused with the terms “Fiancée” and “Fiancé”. The K1 Visa applies to both Fiancée and Fiancé of United States citizens.
Fiancée: A woman to whom a man is engaged to be married
Fiancé: A man to whom a woman is engaged to be married
K1 Fiancée and Fiancé Visa Eligibility Requirements: Until the actual marriage takes place, the fiancé(e) is considered a non-immigrant. A non-immigrant is a foreign national seeking to temporarily enter the United States for a specific purpose. A fiancé(e) may not obtain an extension of the 90-day original non-immigrant admission. After the marriage takes place, the foreign national may apply for Green Card through Marriage to become a United States citizen.
