Recommended Posts


My name is Linda. I am from Raleigh North Carolina.

About my story a little bit. I fell in love with a man from India 3 years ago. we met online through social media. i made a visit to India this year to meet him. we lived together for a month in India.it was so good to be with him & We are looking forward to marry. & the thought came to me that he will apply for the fiance visa. and i heard to qualify for the same i have to show that i make some 20,000 $ a year or more.The thing is i made 22,0000 USD last year. but i am intending to go to college this year & i will be in college at least for 2 years. I will have a part time job in the mean while. but i dont think i will earn a lot in that. My question is can i go ahead with the preparation for Fiance K-1 visa while I am college.

I would spend a good deal of time reading as much as you can about K1 visas and how the consulates in India handle your type of relationship. There are many great topics that can be found in the India sub-forum.

In general please keep in mind that India is considered a high fraud post. Certain "red flags" will lead to additional scrutiny. Cultural norms are very well known by the COs and not following those norms can lead to delays and denials. I would highly suggest that you find out what the norms are for your significant other's area/religion/caste/whatever so you can have those bases covered - engagement ceremony, henna party, family photos etc etc etc. Just having met within the last 2 years can lead to a world of hurt at the interveiw. More visits = stronger evidence too.

Also, it is up to the discretion of the CO if they will accept a co-sponsor for the K1. There are cases here on Vj where a co-sponsor has not been accepted - most recently I think it was a couple through Italy? Anyway, just wanted to mention that too. It isn't always a slam dunk to have a co-sponsor...
