What is Fiancee Visa for?
A fiancee visa is a K-1 nonimmigrant visa that allows your fiancee to come to the United States and stay for 90 days upon entry within which you should marry each other.
Once the marriage has taken place, the American spouse may petition the foreign spouse for a Green Card or permanent residence in the United States where the latter can remain while the application is being processed through the USCIS.
