Eligibility Requirements for the K-1 Fiance Visa

What are the Eligibility Requirements for a Fiancé Visa?

A Fiancé Visa, also known as a K-1 Visa, requires:

  1. The asking Fiance be a U.S. citizen;
  2. Evidence that the couple intends to marry within 90 days of the fiancé(e)’s entrance the United States;
  3. Everyone is free to marry, meaning no one is currently married; and
  4. the couple has met in person within the past 2 years. The physical meeting requirement can be waived, but the waiver requires many things and can always be denied.
