I'm stationed in UAE United Arab Emirates I'm in the USAF What's the best way for me to file a K1 visa or is there a better way to get my future wife to the United States? She's from Colombia S.A.

If you want to marry your fiancee in the U.S., within 90 days of her entering, you'll want to seek the K-1 visa. The form for seeking a K-1 visa is I-129F. Good news for you is that USCIS will expedite approval of I-129F for servicemembers. Check out the Guides on this website for information about I-129F, and this notice for information about servicemembers: http://www.uscis.gov/files/article/faqmilitaryandfamiliesupdate.pdf

Note that after your fiance enters the U.S. and marries you, she will be eligible to adjust her status to legal permanent resident (known as getting a Green Card).

The alternative is marrying your fiancee outside of the U.S. and applying for a CR-1 visa. The form for seeking a CR-1 visa is I-130. USCIS also expedites these petitions for servicemembers. Upon entering the U.S., your new wife will automatically be a legal permanent resident and get a Green Card. You can also submit the petition U.S. or at an overseas consulate near where you are stationed.

There are other benefits for servicemembers, such as expedited naturalization (citizenship) for your spouse, if she is residing in the U.S. and wants to join you at your duty station abroad: http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.eb1d4c2a3e5b9ac89243c6a7543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=8aa13e4d77d73210VgnVCM100000082ca60aRCRD&vgnextchannel=8aa13e4d77d73210VgnVCM100000082ca60aRCRD

What was said above BUT I so wish there was a separate line for service men and women, a speedier one with less red tapes as a direct benefit.

In any case, thanks for the service.

I'm a proud Uncle of a USMarine. Go Devil Dogs.
