"What’s the process for getting my Indian fiancee to the United States?"

If you intend to bring your Indian fiance to the US to marry her, that would be the K1 fiance visa. To qualify, the petitioner must be a U.S. citizen, and you both must be legally free to marry - That means previous marriages, if any, have been terminated by death, divorce or annulment. And lastly, you must have physically met in person at least once within the past 2 years.

Fiance visas are one of RapidVisa’s specialties, and we have a very high success rate. And as of today, we’ve actually helped hundreds of customers from India successfully. At this moment, India is actually #9 on our top 10 countries in terms of volume of RapidVisa customers.

To get started, you go to our website and create a free account. You then answer the questions on our online questionnaire and when you’re ready to file you pay and we go to work generating the documents, forms and letters needed to sign and send in.

Included with your packet will be a detailed checklist of everything you need to include in your petition.

As of 2018, the process is taking on average between 6 to 9 months. Of course timelines are not guaranteed, but this is an average.

After the initial phase of the USCIS filing, you’ll have two more phases. The NVC or National Visa Center phase, and the Embassy phase. At this phase, your fiance will attend an interview in Mumbai, where a consular officer will ask her some questions and make sure your relationship is genuine before approving her visa. Prior to December 2017, you could also interview in New Delhi, but since then, Mumbai is the only option for these. She will also need a medical exam, which range between 3,500 TO 5,000 RUPEES for the designated clinics in India.

Once she has the visa and comes to the U.S., you will need to get married within 90 days of her entering the country.

The next phase of this process would be the adjustment of status to obtain permanent residence, or the green card. RapidVisa can help you with that process too! In fact, we recommend bundling the visa and green card. Just select that option at checkout.

Testimonials from some of our customers from India:

Rapid Visa was very helpful for us. I called several different lawyers before deciding on using RapidVisa. All the lawyers wanted a minimum of 1500 dollars as a retainer fee to get started processing the K-1 Visa. I think the fee for RapidVisa was only 325 dollars and it was well worth it! I talked to a couple in the Manila embassy who hired an attorney and they was going through the process a second time because the attorney messed their paperwork up the first time. I recommended they use RapidVisa. We started our petition July 30 and was approved Feb 1st. My fiancé Hyacinth is here in the states with me now. Thanks for all of your help RapidVisa!

Bringing a fiancée back to the US can seem very daunting, especially with the multiple agencies involved. However I am very happy to report that the process was made much more manageable by Rapid Visa. From start to finish they were very helpful, providing the right tools and answering questions. Our initial application package was received August second and the final US Embassy interview was November 15, just three months later. We used the practice interview questions on the website and that proved extremely useful. Our application was approved on the spot. Now we have a wedding to arrange!

It’s been a long 2 year wait but Rapid Visa ensured that our documents were correct and provided guidance on the additional supporting documents to submit. Our petition was approved May 2020 and my husband’s visa was granted January 2021.
