Marriage Visas

US marriage visas present a highly viable avenue for migration to the United States.  Foreign spouses and fiancé/eés are able to relocate to the US on the basis of their marriage or engagement to a US citizen. A spousal visa may be obtained, in the first instance, by virtue of a successful permanent resident petition and visa application.  Otherwise, a temporary and optional measure referred to as the K-3 may be applied to gain short-term access to the United States prior to acquiring permanent status. Alternatively, the K-1 visa may be afforded to a foreigner engaged to a US citizen as a mode of unification of a couple in the United States. Ultimately, the aim of each of these applications is to reside permanently in America with a US citizen spouse. It is important to file a petition that satisfies the necessary criteria with each of the outlined procedures.  Equally, the following visa application must meet established protocols.

K-1 Visa

K1 visas are issued by the US Consulate to the fiancé/fiancée of a United States citizen. It is a temporary visa that requires the foreign fiancé/fiancée to contract marriage with the US citizen within 90 days of entry into the United States. The US citizen is required to file a temporary residence petition (K-1/I-129F petition).

K-3 Visa

To reduce the separation immediate family members of US citizens may experience while waiting abroad for an immigrant visa, the then Immigration and Naturalization Service introduced the K-3 non-immigrant (temporary) visa. K3 visas are specifically issued to spouses of a US citizens abroad pending the processing of an immigrant visa.
