Every year thousands of foreign citizens get married or engaged to U.S. Citizens. The spouse of a U.S. Citizen is categorized under the immediate relative category. The immediate relative category has no quotas associated with it, so potentially limitless numbers of non-U.S citizens every year can emigrate to the United States either under the K-1 Fiance visa in order to get married in the United States or under the permanent marriage visa.
The requirements for both visas are similar and in fact immediately after marrying under the fiance visa or fiancee visa, the applicant is required to apply for permanent residency as the spouse of a U.S. Citizen. There are certain common requirements for both the US marriage visa and the American fiance visa , including the following:
The relationship must be genuine and subsisting in order to qualify for either a marriage visa or a K-1 visa .
In the case of the US fiance visa, both parties must be legally able to marry (e.g. they cannot already be married to someone else – they must obtain a final divorce decree before starting the visa process).
