Fiancé(e) Visa

Understanding the K-1 Fiancé(e) Visa Process

Unlock the intricacies of the K-1 Fiancé(e) Visa Process with Jeelani Law Firm! Here’s an overview of what you need to know about the K-1 visa:

What is a K-1 Visa?

The K-1 nonimmigrant visa is designed for the foreign-citizen fiancé(e) of a U.S. citizen, allowing them to travel to the United States and marry their U.S. citizen sponsor within 90 days of arrival. Following marriage, the foreign-citizen spouse can apply for adjustment of status to become a permanent resident.

Eligibility Requirements:

Both the U.S. citizen sponsor and the foreign-citizen fiancé(e) must have been legally free to marry at the time of filing the Petition for Alien Fiancé(e), Form I-129F. Additionally, the couple must have met in person within the past two years, although exceptions may be granted under certain circumstances, such as extreme hardship or cultural considerations.

Processing Time:

The processing time for a K-1 visa application varies depending on individual circumstances. Delays may occur due to incomplete information or additional administrative processing requirements. Applicants can check the status of their petition on the USCIS website.

Post-Approval Procedures:

The K-1 visa holder must enter the U.S. within the visa’s validity period, typically six months, and marry their U.S. citizen fiancé(e) within 90 days of entry.
