Question About K1 Submission

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: China

I have submitted the I-129f and all related forms and documentation. Question is, can i travel to my fiancee's country of China for the wedding there before K1 approved?

We had always planned to do 2 weddings and we were hopeful we could go ahead and marry in China while we wait for the K1 visa approval.

In addition, is there a way for our kids to have dual citizenship for USA and China?

Thanks, any help is appreciated.

1)Short answer is no. Form I-129F, who has been issued a nonimmigrant K-1 visa for travel to the United States in order to marry his or her U.S. citizen fiancé(e). Both the U.S. citizen and the K-1 visa applicant must have been legally free to marry at the time the petition was filed and must have remained so thereafter.

After you get married, then you would have to file for K-3 visa or married spouse form of visa.

2)about duel citizenship..

Welcome to the forum.

Getting initially married in China = file for spouse visa, no fiancee visa.

Get initially married in US = file for fiancee visa. Got it?

Dual citizenship, check with PRC officials.

Good luck on you immigration journey.
