K3 Visa Process

Learn About K3 Visa Process And Documents Checklist

Applying For K3 Visa

Before you apply for K3 visa, your U.S. citizen spouse must file Form I-130 on your behalf with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) service center that has jurisdiction over his or her place of residence.

Your spouse will then receive Form I-797, Notice of Action, indicating that the USCIS has received the Form I-130. Your spouse should then file a Form I-129F on your behalf along with a copy of this Form I-797.

After approval USCIS forwards the Form I-129F to the National Visa Center (NVC) for the next step in processing. The NVC will forward to the appropriate American Consulate so that you can apply for the K3 visa.

Check My Eligibility

Duration of Stay

You can remain in the U.S. while you wait for the approval of the Form I-130 and are able to apply for lawful permanent residence status (adjustment of status), instead of having to wait outside the U.S. as the law previously required.


Children under the age of 21 who wish to accompany or join you in the U.S. can apply for K4 visas. They may also be eligible to take up employment during their stay in the U.S.
