What is the Difference Between a K1 Visa and a K3 Visa?
Both the K1 Visa and K3 Visa are designed for the partners of U.S citizens. The key difference between them is that the K1 Visa is for someone who is the fiancé of a U.S. citizen, whereas the K3 Visa is for the spouse if a U.S. citizen.
The K1 Visa is given under the assumption that the holder will get married to their U.S citizen partner within six months. You are free to travel with your partner throughout the United States under the K1 Visa, and you can marry anywhere in the States.
The K3 Visa, sometimes known as the Spouse Visa, enables holders to live in the United States for up to two years. During this time, the K3 Visa holder can apply for a permanent residence card to offer them more security.
Also, K1 Visa holders will be able to apply for permanent residence once they have married/entered into a civil partnership with their U.S. citizen partner.
Ultimately, both visas can lead to a person acquiring a family based green card and becoming a permanent residence in the United States.
What are the Requirements for U.S. Citizenship?
You will be able to apply for American citizenship by naturalization after you have spent a certain period of time lawfully living in the United States.
The minimum residency requirement differs depending on which immigration permission you have been living under in the U.S..
For instance, spouses of U.S. citizens can usually apply for American citizenship after they have resided continuously in America for three years. In other cases, an individual may be required to have lived in the United States continuously for five years.
The main requirements for U.S. citizenship are as follows:
- Must be at least 18-years-old
- Must have lived in the U.S as a green card holder for a certain number of years
- Must have established residency in the same state or district where you intend to apply
- Must be able to prove that you are of “good moral character”
- Must demonstrate adequate knowledge of U.S. history and customs and English language (if applicable)
- If you are male, you must register your willingness to perform civil services if required
- You must swear obedience to the constitution of the United States
What are the Different Family Based Green Cards?
If you have a relative who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, you might be able to get a green card on the basis of your relationship to them. There are immediate relative and preference relative visas within the family based green card category.
The immediate relative visas are as follows:
- IR-1: For spouses of U.S. citizens
- IR-2: For unmarried children of a U.S. citizen who is under the age of 21
- IR-3: For an orphan adopted abroad by a U.S. citizen
- IR-4: For an orphan adopted in the United States by a U.S. citizen
- IR-5: For parents of U.S. citizens if the U.S. citizen child is at least 21-years-old
The preference relative visas are:
- Family first preference: For unmarried children of any age of the U.S. citizen
- F2A: For spouses and unmarried children (under 21) of green card holders
- F2B: For unmarried children of green card holders who are at least 21
- F3: For married children of U.S. citizens
- F4: For siblings of U.S. citizens where the citizen is at least 21-years-old
