The K-1 Fiancé(e) Visa process is complex and it usually takes between 7 to 10 months to go through the 3 steps listed below.
File your petition with the USCIS

In this initial step, you will need to gather all necessary documents and supporting evidence, fill in the Petition for Alien Fiancé(e), and file it with the United States Citizenship & Immigration Service. We are here to help you from the very beginning, review your documents, and streamline the process, so you won’t have to worry about endless and complicated government forms.

National Visa Center Review

As soon as your Petition for Alien Fiancé(e) is approved, your case is handed over to the National Visa Center for additional review. The NVC may require more information, or supporting evidence. Once the NVC determines that your application is compliant, it will be forwarded to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate closest to your fiancé(e). We offer step-by-step support throughout the process.

Embassy Interview

Your fiancé(e) will need to fill in a nonimmigrant visa application, schedule, and attend a face-to-face interview with a consular officer. Prior to the interview, he/she will need to schedule and attend a medical checkup. During the interview, your fiancé(e) will answer a series of questions regarding their relationship to you, to prove that their visa case is genuine. Your visa application status will usually be determined at the end of the interview.
