What is the Difference Between a Fiancé Visa and a Marriage Visa?
The fiancé visa or K-1 is a nonimmigrant visa for fiancés of U.S. citizens who live outside the United States. They must also intend to get married within 90 days of arrival in the United States. Marriage visas or CR-1 or IR-1 visas are immigrant visas. These allow a foreign spouse of a U.S. citizen to immigrate to the U.S. To be eligible, your and your spouse must be able to prove that:
- You are legally married.
- Your marriage is bona fide and real.
- The petitioning spouse has U.S. citizenship or lawful permanent resident status.
- Neither of you is married to anyone else.
