If you intend to get married in the U.S. to someone from another country, you will likely need to obtain a visa in order to allow your fiancé to enter the U.S. before your wedding. If your fiancé enters on a fiancé visa, you must get married within 90 days from the date of entry in order for your spouse to be eligible to adjust his/her status to permanent resident.
Fiancé Visa Requirements:
To qualify for the K1 Fiancé Visa, you must meet the following requirements:
- You are a US Citizen.
- You have met in person.
- You are both free to marry.
- You can support your fiancé in the United States.
- You have no major criminal history.
