If you are engaged and you are a U.S. citizen and your fiancée is outside of the United States, you may qualify for a fiancée visa. The process for this visa is to make a filing with the Department of Homeland Security and proving that you are a U.S. citizen eligible and ready to marry. Once this is approved, the approval goes to the U.S. consulate in your fiancée’s home country. Civil and affidavit of support documents will need to be submitted to the consulate, which will then issue an interview notice for your fiancée. After the interview, your fiancée will receive a fiancé visa and can then make entry to the United States. After entering the United States, you must marry within 90 days and then file for legal permanent residency for your spouse, also called a green card.
