1. US K1 Visa Thailand for Thai Fiancée
It is the best feeling in the world to be with your loved one, but nothing compares to the feeling of being tied together and bonded with the love of your life. For American Citizens, a Visa to bring your fiancée to the U.S is possible. The K1 US Fiancé Visa was designed to allow you (for American citizens) to bring your Thai fiancée to the US for the purpose of marriage. Once granted, your Thai fiancée will have six months to travel to the US. Upon arriving in the USA, your Thai fiancée should marry within ninety days and file for adjustment of status or depart the US if the visa expires.
2. What is a US K1 VISA THAILAND?
The fiancé(e) K-1 nonimmigrant visa is for the foreign-citizen fiancé(e) of a United States (U.S.) citizen. The K-1 visa permits the foreign-citizen fiancé(e) to travel to the United States and marry his or her U.S. citizen sponsor within 90 days of arrival. The foreign-citizen will then apply for adjustment of status to a permanent resident (LPR) with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Because a fiancé(e) visa permits the holder to immigrate to the U.S. and marry a U.S. citizen shortly after arrival in the United States, the fiancé(e) must meet some of the requirements of an immigrant visa. Eligible children of K-1 visa applicants will receive K-2 visas.
Children of the K3 visa holder do not need separate petition filled for them. The children need to be listed on the I-130 petition and the I-129 form. Forgetting to list their names will create problems later for the issuance of the K4 Visa. Normally the K4 visa will not be turned down because the children or child has not been listed.
3. What Is a “Fiancé(e)”?
Under U.S. immigration law, a Thai fiancée of a U.S. citizen is the recipient of an approved Petition for Alien Fiancé(e), Form I-129F, who has been issued a nonimmigrant K-1 visa for travel to the United States in order to marry his or her U.S. citizen fiancé(e). Both the U.S. citizen and the K-1 visa applicant must have been legally free to marry at the time the petition was filed and must have remained so thereafter. The marriage must be legally possible according to laws of the U.S. state in which the marriage will take place.
In general, the Thai fiancée and U.S. citizen sponsor must have met in person within the past two years. USCIS may grant an exception to this requirement, based on extreme hardship for the U.S. citizen sponsor to personally meet the foreign-citizen fiancé(e), or, for example, if it is contrary in the U.S. citizen sponsor’s or foreign-citizen fiancé(e)’s culture for a man and woman to meet before marriage.
4. The First Step: Filing the Petition.
- You, the U.S. citizen sponsor, must file Form I-129F, Petition for Alien Fiancé(e), with the USCIS office that serves the area where you live. See Direct Filing Addresses for Form I-129F, Petition for Alien Fiancé(e) for information on where to file the petition. Further information is available on the USCIS website under Fiancé(e) Visas. Note: Form I-129F cannot be filed at a U.S. Embassy, Consulate, or USCIS office abroad.
- After USCIS approves the petition, it is sent to the National Visa Center (NVC). The NVC will give you a case number and send your petition to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate where your fiancé(e) lives.
5. The Second Step: Applying for a Visa.
- The NVC will mail you a letter when it sends your fiancé(e) case to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate. Once you receive this letter, inform your fiancé(e) to take the below-listed actions to apply for a K-1 visa and prepare for the interview.
- Eligible children of K-1 visa applicants may apply for K-2 visas. Separate applications must be submitted for each K visa applicant, and each K visa applicant must pay the visa application fee.
