A U.S. citizen may petition for her foreigner fiancé, or his foreigner fiancée. A fiancé(e) visa is issued so the fiancé or fiancée can marry the U.S. citizen within 90 days of his or her entry into the United States. Once married in the U.S., a K-1 visa holder can apply for adjustment of status within the U.S. and will not have to return to his or her native country to get the immigrant visa. However, a K-1 visa holder will not be able to adjust his or her status within the U.S. based on a marriage with a spouse who was not his or her initial petitioner.
A U.S. Legal Permanent Resident, a.k.a. “Green Card Holder” can file a fiancé(e) petition.
- Petitioner must be a U.S. citizen.
- Both Petitioner and the Beneficiary must be legally single.
- Petitioner and the Beneficiary must have met in person during the last 2 years.
