What Is a K-1 Visa?
A K-1 fiancé visa allows individuals to bring their foreign fiancée/fiancé to the United States in order to get married. After marriage, your spouse can stay permanently and immigrate to America after applying for adjustment of status.
Under a K-1 visa, a foreign national can come to the U.S. for up to 90 days to marry a U.S. citizen. To obtain the K-1 visa, you must have spent time with your fiancée within the two years before you file the petition. This condition can be waived by an immigration official.
Both parties also need to be eligible for marriage. This condition can be satisfied by showing proof that both parties are of legal age and that any former marriages have been legally dissolved.
