K1 Visa Timeline

Form I-129F is used to file a petition to bring your foreign fiance'(e) (k-1) to the U.S. for marriage. When the petition is approved the k1 visa process will then follow. K-1 is a nonimmigrant visa that permits a foreign national fiance'(e) of a U.S. citizen to enter the United States to marry the petitioner within 90 days of admission to the U.S.

Here is the timeline of my K1 visa process in 2014, from filing the Form I-129F to getting married.

    1. No. It doesn’t matter if the beneficiary has a job or no. I didn’t have a job when I was processing my visa and they didn’t ask about it on the interview.
