If you become engaged to a person living outside of the United States,
your fiancé can apply to obtain a temporary visa, which will allow
them to enter the United Sates for 90 days. Once your fiancé has
gained access into the US, they may apply for conditional permanent residency.
The United States will send the application to the Consulate in the foreign
country. Your fiancé’s home country will contact your fiancé
to obtain additional forms and schedule an interview. After your spouse
is granted the visa, they must use it within four months of issuance.
USCIS Criteria for Qualification
For your fiancé to qualify for a fiancé visa, they must meet
the following criteria:
They must have met their fiancé (you) within two years of applying.
You and your fiancé must have a bona fide intention to wed.
You and your fiancé must conclude a valid and legal marriage within
90 days of your fiancé’s arrival to the United States.
It is important to keep in mind that if you and your fiancé do not
marry within the allotted 90-day period, your fiancé and any dependents
that traveled with them may be forced to depart from the United States.
Because obtaining a fiancé visa may be difficult for you or your
partner, it is best to consult an experienced immigration attorney right away.
