What is a Fiance K-1 visa? Are you eligible?

A fiance (male) or fiancee (female) is someone engaged to you. To be considered a fiance for the K-1 visa, you simply must have physically met within two (2) years before filing the I-129F AND intend to marry each other within 90 days of entry using the visa.  That’s it. There’s no formal ceremony required.

If you are a U.S. citizen with a foreign fiance then you can file for a visa which grants him/her permission to travel here on a signle-entry visa and marry you.

The first step is for you, the U.S. citizen, to file the I-129F petition for an alien fiance. 

Both of you must be legally allowed to marry in the U.S. 


your fiance(e) can join you in the u.s. with a k-1 visa


If your partner has children, the once your fiance is approved for a K-1 visa, his/her children (if any) will get a K-2 visa.  Child(ren) must be under 21 years-old and unmarried.


Is there an annual numerical limit to K-1 Visas?

The National Visa Center (NVC) has annual visa quotas and cannot exceed a certain amount.  Meaning not everyone who is approved gets a visa right away. But don’t worry…  

Most family-based visas (like K-1) are not restricted.  So, this means when your fiance is approved, the visa issue process will begin immediately.  He/she won’t have to wait until a visa is available.


Why file a fiance(e) visa and not a marriage visa (IR1 or CR1)?

For many reasons, you may decide to apply for a fiance(e) K-1 visa and not a spousal (marriage) visa. 

1. If you cannot legally get married in the foreign fiance(e)’s country for some reason (religious, social, political, LGBT, etc.)

2. If you cannot physically travel to the foreign country (disability or some other hardship)

3. If you don’t want to marry your fiance(e) until he/she comes to the U.S.

4. An advantage is that K-1 Visas are usually processed faster than marriage (or family) based visas.

5. Many other possibilities and reasons.
