Family-Based Immigrant Visas (i.e., Green Cards)

First Preference (F1)

This category is for unmarried sons and daughters of U.S. citizens.

Second Preference (F2)

This category is for spouses, children, and unmarried sons and daughters of permanent residents.

Family-Based Nonimmigrant Visas

K-1/K-2 Fiancé

The K-1 visa permits the foreign-citizen fiancé(e) to travel to the United States and marry his or her U.S. citizen spouse within 90 days of arrival. 

K-3/K-4 Fiancé

The K-3 nonimmigrant visa is for the foreign-citizen spouse of a U.S. citizen. This visa category is intended to shorten the physical separation between the foreign-citizen and U.S. citizen spouses by having the option to obtain a nonimmigrant K-3 visa overseas and enter the United States to await approval of the immigrant visa petition.
