Applying for a Fiancée Visa

Immigration Law and Fiancée Visas in Tampa

A K-1 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. Citizenship and 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.

Along with various other requirements, the U.S. consulate requires proof of financial support for the foreign national, by either the foreign national or the U.S. citizen fiancée.
