The K1 Visa for the 90-day Fiance

Updated on March 7, 2016

The 90-Day fiance is a product of the American K1 Visa program. It proves that love can happen between a man and woman that live 7000 miles apart. It provides a way for the non-citizen to come to America for 90 days to get married or go back home. It is much faster than the standard way of obtaining an Immigrant visa, which is why many lovers try this.

Use the following steps to fill out the mandatory K1 F-129F form. All documents must be in English.

After approval, send a copy petition, letters, etc., to your foreign fiancé PLUS:

When assets are used, the assets must equal 5 times the difference between the annual income and the needed 125% of the poverty level (this is $15,930 for two, $20,000 for three), If you do not have a job or a steady income from other sources (such as retirement income), you will likely have to get a co-sponsor for your spouse, even if your assets are adequate.
