Applying for a Fiancée Visa
Immigration Law and Fiancée Visas in Tampa
visa, or a fiancée visa, allows for a foreign national to marry a U.S.
citizen within the 90 days of his or her arrival. After marriage, the
foreign national will apply for the adjustment status to a permanent resident
via the U.S.
Immigration Services (USCIS). The foreign national that travels to the U.S. and marries
a citizen is required to pass certain requirements of an
immigrant visa. To learn more about fiancée visas, get in touch with a Tampa immigration
lawyer for expert assistance.
It is the duty of the U.S. citizen sponsor to file Form I-129F, which is
the Petition for Alien Fiancée. The form must be filed with your
local USCIS office, not at a consulate, a U.S. embassy or a USCIS office
abroad. Then, the foreign national fiancée must follow the specific
instructions given to him or her by the NVC, amongst which a medical examination
location is determined. The fiancée will have inkless, digital
fingerprints taken during the required interview for consulate records.
The process may be slowed down due to extraneous administrative processing
taking place after the initial interview with the consulate officer. Children
of K-1 visa applicants may apply for K-2 visas, as long as they meet the
visa requirements and pay an individual fee per child.
Visa applicants must schedule and participate in a medical examination
performed by an authorized panel physician prior to the interview. Although
some vaccinations are not required for K visa issuance, applicants are
recommended to receive the vaccinations that are required under U.S. immigration law.
