How do I Apply for a K-1 Fiance Visa?
The K-1 application procedure is essentially a two-step process:
- FIRST: The U.S. citizen sponsor, must file a Petition for Alien Fiancé(e), with the USCIS office that serves the area where you live. Note: Form I-129F cannot be filed at a U.S. Embassy, Consulate, or USCIS office abroad; and
- SECOND: Once your case is approved by USCIS, your case will be sent to the U.S. consulate in your fiancée’s native country. Your fiance(e) will then be asked to fill out paperwork, produce police clearance from everywhere they have lived, take a medical exam and to got for an interview in the U.S. consulate.
- NOTE: obtaining police clearance from different places your fiance(e) has lived may take some time, so starting this process in a timely fashion is important.
How Long Will it Take?
Unfortunately there are no rules for fiancee visas or marriage visas. The processing speed depends on the case load both at USCIS and at your local embassy. As a general guide, you should anticipate between 4 and 10 months, barring any requests for additional information.
