The Fiancee Visa Process, Simplified.

If you are an American citizen and you want to bring your foreign fiancée to the United States to get married, then you will need to obtain a K-1 fiancée visa. The K-1 visa is also known as a fiancee visa. There are certain qualifications you and your fiancee must meet for your fiancee visa petition to be approved.

First, your K-1 visa petition must be filed with the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Certain income requirements will have to be met and you will need to show proof you have met your fiancee in person within the last two years. You both must be free to marry; meaning all divorces or annulments are finalized.

Below are some examples of the information and paperwork you must collect:

  • Letter from you describing your intention to marry your fiancée
  • Valid passport
  • Birth certificate
  • Certificate from the police authorities at all the places your fiancee has lived since the age of 16
  • Evidence of ability to financially support your fiancee
  • Photographs of you and your fiancee together
  • Medical examination reports from an approved physician
  • Divorce decree or death certificate related to a previous marriage (if applicable)

Once your K-1 visa petition is approved by the USCIS, it will be forwarded to the United States Consulate in the country where your fiancée lives. The United States Consulate will then contact your fiancée to schedule an interview.
After the interview at the consulate, the K-1 visa will be issued within a week or so. The fiancee visa process can take anywhere from 5-9 months. Once your fiancée arrives in the United States, you must marry within a period of 90 days. If you don’t marry within the 90 day period, she must return to her home country.

This is a short overview of the fiancee visa process, but it should give you a general idea of just some of the requirements. You can also find information on our website, Cherryblossoms.com.

Traveling To Europe or Asia to Meet Your Fiancée? You Can Find Great Travel Deals

europeasiatravel

 

If you’re following the news, current events like the Zika virus scare and economic downturns in Europe and Asia could make traveling overseas a lot cheaper. If you plan on traveling to see your girlfriend or Fiancée, then this may be the time to do it.

Here are some tips to get the best prices:

1. Airline ticket prices often vary by the day of the week and time of day. Usually the middle of the week is cheaper than say the weekend.
Expect prices to go up near holidays or busy seasons like Spring Break or Christmas.

2. Be flexible with your routes. It’s sometimes cheaper to take a domestic airline to a “hub city” like Los Angeles or New York and then switching to a foreign airline.

There is a minor downside to this: you may have to switch your luggage yourself. In other words, get it from the baggage carousel and then take it to the new carrier’s check in desk. This can be a small inconvenience, but sometimes the savings can be substantial.

3. Use several travel sites or travel search engines. You may also be able to contact airlines directly or purchase directly from their websites. For instance, if you’re using a site like Expedia or Priceline you may not always find the lowest fare. Do some research before you buy.

4. Sign up for the airline reward programs. No matter how little you fly, it’s worth it to sign up for these programs- many offer free upgrades.

5. Book your flight early. The “sweet spot” for getting the best price while buying your airline tickets is about 6-8 weeks before you’re looking to travel.

Hope these tips help!

By the way, if you’re traveling to meet your Fiancée we have tips that will make getting your Fiancee Visa a much easier process. Please feel free to call us at Cherry Blossoms and we will be happy to go over the Fiancee Visa or Spousal Visa requirements. You can reach us toll free at 800- 322-3267.

Good luck and happy travels!

Delays Expected For United States Passports

passport
 If you’re plan on traveling internationally this year to see your Cherry Blossoms sweetheart and you need a passport, make sure to start  well in advance of your trip. The reason? There are expected to be a bunch of people renewing their passports this year.

This year (2016) is the 10 year anniversary of the initiative which requires American citizens to have a passports for traveling to Mexico and the Caribbean.

Since there were a large number of passports issued 10 years ago, these passports will need to be renewed this year. This could mean delays for you if you are renewing your passport or planning to get a new passport. Even under normal circumstances it can take a couple of months to get your passport! So be sure to plan ahead!

If you already have a passport make sure it is valid for the dates you expect to travel. Some countries will require your passport to be valid for six months after travel and you may also be required to have a visa for certain countries, so be sure to check with the US State Department before you book your flight: http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/visit.html

If you’re looking to renew your passport or getting a new one, you can find passport applications at your local US Post Office. You can also take your official passport photos there, too!

Need a passport in a hurry? Expedited services ARE available and you may be able to get it as quickly as three weeks.  For more information, go to the official US Department of State website at: http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/passports.html
