US immigration law allows certain non-citizens who are immediate family members of US citizens and permanent residents to become lawful permanent residents based on specific family relationships. You can apply for IR visas if you are the spouse, unmarried children below 21 years of age, or parents of a US citizen; for more specific application information, please refer to our IR special column. If you are an unmarried 21-year-old child of a US citizen, the spouse or an unmarried child below or at 21 years of age of a permanent resident, or a brother or sister of a US citizen, then you can obtain a Green Card by applying for a preference immigrant visa. Unlike IR visas, preference immigrant visas are subject to schedules; each preference immigrant visa case will receive a priority date after Form I-130 has been approved, which is your scheduling time. The USCIS will regularly refresh the schedule (https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/legal/visa-law0/visa-bulletin.html). You can continue your next step of application when your preference immigrant visa has been scheduled.

The K-1 Visa is a non-immigrant visa designed for the foreign-citizen fiancé(e) of a US citizen who is outside of the US. Please note that K-1 is a visa service, therefore the application is not only to be submitted to the USCIS, but also to the US Embassy or Consulate in the country where the fiancé(e) resides. The purpose of the K-1 Visa is for the foreign-citizen fiancé(e) to travel to the US and marry their US citizen sponsor within 90 days of arrival; therefore, holders of the K-1 Visa are prohibited from studying or working in the US. After marriage, as the spouse of a US citizen, you may then apply for adjustment of status to a permanent resident (LPR) with USCIS and start a happy and prosperous new life in the US. Due to frequent cases of fake marriage arrangements, USCIS requires the applicants to provide evidence such as photographs and other proof to show that the relationship with the fiancé(e) is genuine, and that the US citizen sponsor and the fiancé(e) must have met in person within the last two years of the submission of visa application (unless it is contrary in the US citizen sponsor’s or foreign-citizen fiancé(e)’s culture to meet before marriage).
After you or your fiancé(e) satisfy the requirements of K-1 Visa, eligible unmarried children of the K-1 Visa holder can then apply for K-2 Visa to come to the US to reunify with the family. Please click on corresponding modules for more specific information on K-2 Visa.
