Earlier we write about Fiance visa and Requirement for Fiance Visa. Now it’s time to explain how to apply and what steps you need to pass to getting a Fiance Visa of K1 Visa. We collect all possible information about this topic. Let’s start!
Petition for Fiance visa process
As we wrote before, this petition for fiance visa process fulfilled and sent by American groom or bride. Almost all questions are standard for every application form or questionnaire. But, of course, have a difference. Here we collect for you some examples.
The form and the instruction to the form you can download on official website USCIS here or on our site.
This form is completed and signed by the petitioner only.
The form is printed in black and white and is signed only in black ink. If you fill out the form by hand, then also write in black ink.
In accordance with the new instructions of 2017, if any of the questions don’t touching to you, then you must specify N / A or none.
Please note that the requirement of USCIS is at least one personal meeting for the last 2 years prior to filing the petition. If more than 2 years have passed since your personal meeting, and your answer is No, then you will be refused.
If you answered No, then you need to fill in paragraph 54 and describe for what reason a personal meeting is impossible. This option is possible only on religious and cultural restrictions, which will need to be confirmed and proved.
The standard answer is Yes. If you answered Yes, then in paragraph 54 you need to describe the circumstances under which a personal meeting occurred.
35. Did you meet your fiancé (e) or spouse through the services of an international marriage broker? Did you meet your bride or wife by the means of an international marriage agency?
If you met a groom through friends or in person, when you were in the US or elsewhere, or in social media, then everything is clear, put a tick in front of NO
But, if you met a groom on a dating site, then you need to find out whether this site is an international marriage agency or not. By the way, in the instructions with this form, USCIS gives a description of what he considers the IBA and what doesn’t. The groom must carefully read this!
Also you can write to the support service of the site at which you met and specifically specify whether they are an international marriage agency or not
Form I-129F Petition for alien fiancé (e) is completed only in one copy, only an American citizen signs it, your signature is no need there.
Form I-129F – Petition for alien fiancé (e) is a universal form for brides from all countries.

The prospective questions for the fiance visa interview can and should be prepared in advance. If your relationship is real, based on trust, love and understanding, then you can easily answer all the questions that the consul can ask you.
