3 to 6 months from initial filing to fiance’s arrival.

K-1 Fiance Visa PETITION

To establish K-1 visa classification for an alien fiancée, an American citizen must file a petition, Form I-129F, Petition for Relative or Fiancée, with the United State Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) having jurisdiction over the place of the petitioner’s residence in the United States.

Such petitions may not be adjudicated abroad.

The approved petition will be forwarded by USCIS to the American consular office where the alien fiancée will apply for his or her visa.

A petition is valid for a period of four months from the date of USCIS action, and may be revalidated by the consular officer.

K-1 Fiance Visa VISA INELIGIBILITY/WAIVER

Applicants who have a communicable disease, or have a dangerous physical or mental disorder; are drug addicts; have committed serious criminal acts, including crimes involving moral turpitude, drug trafficking, and prostitution; are likely to become a public charge; have used fraud or other illegal means to enter the United States; or are ineligible for citizenship, must be refused a visa.

The two-year foreign residency requirement for former exchange visitors is also applicable. If found to be ineligible, the consular officer will advise the applicant if the law provides for a waiver.
