Guiding Families: The K-2 Visa Journey for Children of Fiancé(e) Visa Applicants

Navigating the immigration process can be complex, especially when children are involved. If you’re considering applying for a K-1 fiancé(e) visa to marry a U.S. citizen and you have children, understanding the K-2 visa process is essential. Let’s delve into what you need to know:

Overview of the K-2 Visa

The K-2 visa is designed to allow the children of K-1 fiancé(e) visa applicants to accompany their parent to the United States. To be eligible for a K-2 visa, the child must meet the following criteria:

1. Unmarried: The child must be unmarried at the time of application.

2. Under 21 Years Old: The child must be under the age of 21 to qualify for a K-2 visa.

3. Named in the Petition: The child must be named in the K-1 fiancé(e) visa petition submitted by the sponsoring U.S. citizen.

Application Process for K-2 Visa

The process for obtaining a K-2 visa is closely linked to the K-1 fiancé(e) visa application. Once the K-1 visa is approved for the fiancé(e), the children named in the petition may apply for a K-2 visa.

If the children do not accompany the parent initially, they have the option to apply for a K-2 visa within one year of the date the parent’s fiancé(e) visa was issued. This allows families flexibility in coordinating their immigration plans.
