The intricacies of spousal immigration in the US
A permanent citizen of the United States of America has the option of bringing their spouse, living in a foreign country to come to the US and live there as a permanent resident. A US citizen can approach this issue and bring their spouse to come live in the States in two significant ways. These include:
Immigrant visa reserved for the spouse of a US citizen- A
US citizen can apply for the CR1 or IR1 visas by filing an immigrant
petition for his/her alien relative
Nonimmigrant visa reserved for the spouse of a US citizen- A US citizen can apply for the K3 visas to register an application for the nonimmigrant visa for their spouse. The visa needs to be issued in the country where the marriage had taken place. After the completion of the process and the issuance of the visa, the spouse can travel to the US and has to wait for the processing of the immigrant visa. In order to apply for the K3 visa, petitions needs to be filed with USCIS.
