If you are engaged and you are a U.S. citizen and your fiancé is outside of the United States, you may qualify for a fiancé visa. The process for this visa is to make a filing with the Department of Homeland Security and proving that you are a U.S. citizen eligible and ready to marry. Once this is approved, the approval goes to the U.S. consulate in your fiancé’s home country. Civil and affidavit of support documents will need to be submitted to the consulate, which will then issue an interview notice for your fiancé. After the interview, your fiancé will receive a fiancé visa and can then make entry to the United States. After entering the United States, you must marry within 90 days and then file for legal permanent residency for your spouse, also called a green card.
