A K-1 visa, also known as a fiance(e) visa, is a non-immigrant visa issued to the foreign fiance(e) of an American citizen by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) allowing legal entrance into the United States for the purposes of getting married to the American spouse. As a K-1 visa is a non-immigrant visa, the foreign fiance(e) cannot legally work in the United States under this visa category unless he or she applies for a work permit. Also, K-1 visas are single-use visas, meaning the foreign fiance(e) cannot leave the United States and return to the United States under the same visa. An American citizen is required file a petition with the USCIS on behalf of the foreign fiance(e).
