The First Step: Getting Here
Marriage to a U.S. citizen opens the door to family-based immigration. So long as the marriage is genuine (and not just a sham to get immigration benefits), it often leads to a green card and eventual citizenship.
However, the first step involves legally entering the country to get married. A fiancé visa (K-1 visa) is available to nationals of foreign countries who are:
- Engaged to a U.S. citizen
- Residing outside of the U.S.
- Planning to marry in the U.S.
You must meet numerous additional requirements to qualify. For example, a criminal history could limit your immigration opportunities. Additionally, your U.S. citizen fiancé(e) must demonstrate that he or she has sufficient financial means to support you.
If approved, the fiancé visa will allow you to enter and lawfully remain in the United States for a limited period of time. You will also have the opportunity to apply for a work permit. However, you must get married within 90 days; otherwise, the visa will expire, and it cannot be extended.
