The K-1 fiancé visa allows a foreign national to enter the US for up to 90 days for the purpose of marrying a US citizen. In order to qualify for a fiancé visa, the foreign boyfriend or girlfriend must intend to marry the US citizen within 90 days of arrival. The couple must have met within the two years prior to the fiancé visa application, unless waived by immigration officials due to custom or hardship. Finally, both parties must be eligible to marry by meeting the age requirements and showing proof that any former marriages ended in divorce, annulment or death. Note: during the consular processing portion of the fiancé visa process, the consulate may require the US citizen fiancé(e)to file evidence of his or her ability to support the foreign national on form I-134. Many consulates require the petitioner to have income at or above the poverty level. An immigration attorney can help evaluate your eligibility for sponsoring a foreign fiancé.
