Spouse Visa (K3-K4) 

 

If you are a U.S. citizen wishing to apply for a visa for your foreign spouse and eligible children, to come and apply for U.S. Lawful Permanent Residency from within the U.S., you can file for a K-3 and K-4 visa. 

 

Eligibility: 

If you are a U.S. citizen, your foreign spouse can be eligible for a K-3 visa if your spouse: 

            Is married to you 

            Is the beneficiary of Form I-130 Petition for Alien Relative 

            Seeks to enter the United States to await USCIS decision on Form I-130

 

A child of your foreign spouse may be eligible for a K-4 visa if 

            They are under 21 years of age 

            Unmarried 

            The child of the K-3 visa applicant that you filed for 

 

To obtain a K-3 visa you must file Form-130 Petition for Alien Relative and Form-129F Petition for Alien Fiancé(e).  The I-129F would need to be approved before the I-130 for you to go the K-3 route rather than undergo Immigrant Visa Processing.  Currently, there is no additional U.S. government filing fee for filing Form I-129F to try to obtain the K-3 visa rather than undergoing Immigrant Visa Processing.
