A NON-IMMIGRANT VISA FOR THE FOREIGN-CITIZEN FIANCE
The K-1 visa is a non-immigrant visa for the foreign-citizen fiance of a United States citizen. The foreign-citizen fiance applies for the K-1 visa for permission to travel to the United States to marry their fiance. The visa is good for 90 days, and once the marriage is official, the foreign-citizen fiance can apply to adjust his or her status to a permanent resident. In order to be eligible for the K-1 visa, the betrothed must have met in person within the past two years. However, USCIS may grant an exception to this rule depending on individual circumstances. If you or your fiance is ready to apply for a K-1 visa, contact the experienced immigration law team at Zohar Law PLLC in NYC today for a free 15-minute consultation.

WHAT IS A K-1 VISA?
K-1 Visa or a fiancé(e) visa is a type of visa that can help a person who is a foreign-citizen come to the United States when their fiancé(e) is a U.S. citizen. When a fiancé(e) from another country is traveling to the United States, they are able to obtain the K-1 Visa to meet their fiancé(e) who is a citizen of the United States. For the couple to marry, the foreign born citizen must obtain a K-1 Visa to enter the United States. When the fiancé(e) comes from another country to the United States they have 90 days to get married before the visa has expired. Once the marriage has taken place, the K-1 Visa will expire and the foreign-citizen will then need to apply for an adjustment of their immigration status to become a permanent resident. The status must be applied through the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. When the K-1 Visa is admitted to the fiancé(e), he or she has a holder to immigrate to the United States to marry. Once in the United States he or she must meet the requirements to obtain an immigration visa.
