No, your status remains as K-1 until you file for AOS and become a permanent resident. K-3 is a different visa entirely.

Yup... and hopefully your status also goes from " :( " to " :D "

K3 is a different visa. When you enter on a K1 visa, the visa dies a sudden death. Your status is derived from the I-94 in your passport, good for 90 days from entry. If you file to adjust status before the I-94 expires, then your status becomes "pending AOS". If it takes you more than 90 days to file, you are "out of status" until you file. Once you file, you are "pending AOS".

K1 is a single entry visa dead on arrival. Don't leave the US without advanced parole or you won't get back in.

K3 is a totally different visa!!! Fiancés of USC's come on a K1 and spouses come on a K3. K3's are already married!

Those who entered on K1's don't change to K3.

Not a new visa. But, you do need to file AOS.


Life's just a crazy ride on a run away train

You can't go back for what you've missed

So make it count, hold on tight find a way to make it right

You only get one trip

So make it good, make it last 'cause it all flies by so fast

You only get one trip
