Global Allianz Immigration consultants will prepare and file all the required forms and documents for K-3 visa.
The K-3 visa category allows spouses of U.S. citizens to enter the U.S. in a non-immigrant visa category while they wait until they are able to apply for lawful permanent residence status. A K-3 visa holder may bring their child using a K-4 visa.
The K-3 Visa allows the spouse of a U.S. citizen, who is waiting abroad for an immigrant visa, and the (K-4 Visa) spouse’s children to enter the United States as non-immigrants, re-unite with their family here, and then apply for immigrant status while in the country. It is one of several immigration benefit provisions created by the Legal Immigration Family Equity Act (LIFE Act).
Under this new non-immigrant visa classification, spouses of U.S. citizens may be granted K-3 non-immigrant status, and the spouse’s unmarried children (under 21 years of age) may be granted K-4 non-immigrant visa status. Obtaining a K-3/4 visa is not required, however. Spouses of U.S. citizens and their children may skip applying for a K visa and directly obtain their immigrant visa abroad from the Department of State.
