What is a Fiancé Visa?
A K1 Fiancé Visa is a nonimmigrant visa for foreign nationals engaged to US citizens. This visa allows the foreign national to enter the United States lawfully based on the engagement for the purpose of marrying their U.S. citizen partner in the United States and then obtaining lawful permanent residency. It facilitates the transition to permanent residency for the foreign fiancé(e) after the marriage.

K1 Fiancé Visa Requirements
Specific requirements must be met by the U.S. citizen and their foreign fiancé. The primary qualifications for petitioning the U.S. government for a K-1 Fiancé Visa include the following:
- In-person meeting within the last two years (with limited exceptions)
- Both parties free to marry
- Financial support
- No major criminal history
- U.S. citizenship for petitioning fiance
It is important to note that the foreign fiancé cannot petition for the K-1 visa themselves. The U.S. citizen must initiate the process and petition the government on their fiancé’s behalf.
Applying for a K1 Fiancé Visa
To obtain a K1 Fiancé Visa, the U.S. citizen (Petitioner) must file a Petition for Alien Fiancé (Form I-129F) with the USCIS. This petition should be sent to the appropriate USCIS Service Center based on the U.S. citizen’s geographic residence. This petition must first be approved by USCIS before the case is forwarded to the National Visa Center, and eventually the consulate or embassy in your fiance’s native country, for processing and interview scheduling. Once approved, the I-129F petition will be valid for a certain period of time.
