What’s the process like for getting a K-1 visa?

Can your fiancé visit you in the U.S. while waiting on a K-1 visa?

Of course you want to see the person you love as often as possible. Plus, cake-tasting just isn’t the same over video chat. Still, there are some reasons to avoid seeing each other in person until the right time, depending on where you are in the filing process. 

What can we do while waiting on my fiancé’s K-1 visa?

The time you spend apart will probably pass before you know it, and you will have wonderful stories to tell of how you stayed connected across borders. 

Can my fiancé leave the U.S. to visit other countries under a K-1 visa?

Once inside the U.S., those with K-1 visas can leave the U.S. on temporary trips, but only to certain places. This means you might be able to plan that joint bachelor/bachelorette party in the Caribbean after all!
