"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:

I have several friends who did their own application for K1 Visa. They were successful but after watching their frustration trying to navigate the immigration process I decided to use Rapid Visa. Every step was so easy and all my questions were answered within minutes. My fiancée was able to visit the office in Manila for help. And after a short visit with Robert she had all her answers and was fully prepared for her interview at the US embassy. From start to the time she received her visa was less then five months. Thank you Rapid Visa for all your help.

Rapid Visa was super helpful and made the process of getting my husband's visa so much easier than had we tried to do it on our own. They ensure everything is completed accurately so that the process goes smooth with the government. From the submission of our petition to receipt of the visa took seven months.

We will definitely be using them again when it's time to request an adjustment of status. They make things easy to understand and take the guess work out of the process. We highly recommend Rapid Visa to any couple looking to be united and living together in the states. Thank you Rapid Visa for always being available to answer questions and for your attention to detail, the service is well worth the value!

"Quiero agradecer a todas las personas maravillosas de RapidVisa que me ayudaron con todo el Proceso K1. Investigué mucho sobre la visa K1 y llegué a la conclusión de que podía hacerlo solo, pero probablemente no debería hacerlo si alguna vez quiero ver a mi prometido en los Estados Unidos, jeje. Antes de pagar, leí los testimonios y decidí llamar y "sentirme bien". Me sorprendió la amabilidad y la amabilidad que me demostraron en lo que fue una llamada de información justa. Después de esa llamada telefónica, me convertí en miembro. Soy muy inteligente y sé que mi esposa vendría a los Estados Unidos eventualmente pero con RAPIDVISA, ella estuvo aquí en 5 1/2 meses. Llamé y llamé casi cada 2 semanas para poder estar listo para el siguiente paso y esa pandilla de RAPIDVISA siempre me proporcionó respuestas fáciles de entender. Gracias sin ustedes, probablemente les enviaré más información de algo que olvidé."

Hi to RapidVisa (RV) Staffs, thank you for making the “getting and being together” process easier, faster cheaper. We are grateful for all your wonderful acts of bringing in- love people together. Our journey with you is truly amazing. We are sharing our story with the hope that those who will read it will get inspired and spread your company.

It was my Gloria who first came to know of your site when I requested her to do an online research on the processing of visas and how could she be with me in the U.S at the fastest time possible. When she found it, she got excited, called me and informed me of your site. Immediately, I called Las Vegas Office and I was impressed of how that male Customer Service Representative talked and managed to answer all my queries. I felt his sincerity of helping Filipino women as to their problems of securing visas. That time that I talked to him, I already booked my round-trip airfare flight to meet my her personally in the Philippines. We met online in a dating site. We fell in love with each other just by reading each other’s profile in which we were so much alike. Call it “gut,” I felt she held half of my heart. I even asked her if she wrote her profile after she has read mine. She just laughed. I didn’t know she was way ahead of me in that dating site.

We stayed together in Manila for 14 days of May 2016. She is exactly the same woman as she wrote in her profile. We had a lot in common. The love we felt online became more solid in person. On the 5th day of my stay, we went to RV Manila Office and we created an unpaid account and didn’t submit yet our documents as we were waiting for my divorce paper; and the finality of her annulment. The waiting period was hurting, but because we truly love each other, we were committed to wait. Its good there is Skype to connect with her twice a day. We exchanged emails. We made the best of everything every day as we talk with each other. She would tell me new testimonials of successful couples helped by RV. Those stories inspired us and gave us hope, inspiration and encouragement to hold on and wait for our day to come.

When all our documents were all ready and complete, she went to RV Manila to finalize the packet and sent to USCIS on April 4, 2017. We received the NOA1 April 10. The NOA2 was August 24. She took her Medical exam Sept 7-8 and the US Embassy interview was done September 14. Her Visa was approved just after her interview. Questions in the interview revolved around authenticity of our relationship. Her Visa was delivered September 21, 2017. After that, I went back to the Philippines and brought her to the U.S.

The whole process took us 5 months and 10 days. It was not as tedious, difficult or scary as we thought; everything went smooth, no RFE’s. It’s as easy as 1-2-3 provided all documents are ready and organized. The hardest was maintaining a positive attitude between NOA1 and NOA2. During that time waiting was hurting, we were speculating, worrying and doubting. Missing each other was heart-breaking. We just reassured we love each other every day. I always told her that line of a song, “Just remember I love you and everything will be all right.” We believe finding each other was a Divine Intervention. Thus, trust in God, trust in each other and trust with RapidVisa gave us the full strength to hold on together.

Again, we express our profound gratefulness to the RV staffs - Ms. Irish, Mark, Tina, Johben, Jerald, Melanie, Weng and the rest of the team. We will soon work on the AOS. Thank you so much.
