This class of visa is designed to help Americans, who plan to marry a foreign national, who is residing outside the United States. Once issued, the fiancé (e) visa (or K-1 nonimmigrant visa) allows the fiancé (e) to enter the United States for 90 days so that the marriage ceremony can take place.
Once the marriage takes place, the foreign national spouse may apply for permanent residence and remain in the United States while USCIS processes the application.
Please Note: If the marriage to a foreign national takes place outside the United States or the fiancé (e) is already residing legally in the United States, one does not need to file for a fiancé (e) visa.
