Requirements for a Fiancé(e) Visa
If you are engaged to be married to someone who is not a United States citizen, you may apply to have them come into the United States on a fiancé(e) visa. To successfully obtain this visa, there are several requirements that must be proven:
- A bona fide intention to marry.
- The ability and willingness to participate in a marriage within the required time period.
- Having met in person within two years of the petition filing. This requirement may be waived if you show that this meeting would have caused extreme hardship or violated strict cultural rules.
Once the visa is issued, your fiancé must enter the U.S. within four months. Your marriage must take place within 90 days following the date of our fiancé(e)'s entry. If this does not occur, the visa will expire and your fiancé(e) and their dependents will be subject to deportation.
