What Is a Fiancé/Fiancée Visa?

A fiancé/fiancée visa, or K-1 Visa is a way to unite couples. It provides a pathway for non-citizens to enter the United States for the purpose of marrying a U.S. citizen within a 90-day period. It also paves the way toward lawful permanent resident status via a green card.

What Are the Requirements For The K-1 Visa?

Below are the requirements to initiate the K-1 visa application process.

  • The non-U.S. citizen partner must:
    • Reside outside the United States
    • Have the legal capacity for marriage
    • Have had an in-person meeting with the U.S. citizen partner within the past 2 years before the U.S. citizen partner files the Form I-129F
    • Have no significant criminal convictions
    • Be able to provide records or documents requested by the U.S. Embassy or consulate, such as the following:
      • Birth certificate
      • Passport
  • The U.S. citizen partner must:
    • Be able to prove their U.S. citizenship is valid by providing proof such as:
      • U.S. birth certificate
      • Unexpired U.S. passport
      • Certificate of Naturalization or Certificate of Citizenship
    • Have the legal freedom and capability to enter into marriage. Any previous marital relationships should have been legally dissolved through divorce or the passing of a spouse.
    • Meet the Federal Poverty Guidelines income level for your specific household size. This shows your ability to financially support your partner when they arrive in the U.S.
    • Complete and file Form I-129F with USCIS. This is the formal petition for the non-U.S. citizen partner’s entry to the United States on a K-1 visa.

If there are children involved, they must be under the age of 21 to be eligible for sponsorship under the K-2 visa category.

If the requirements are met and the K-1 visa is approved, then the U.S. citizen fiance has 6 months from the date the initial Form I-129F is approved to enter the United States.
