How Many Times Can You Apply for a K1 Visa?

Under normal circumstances, the best option for you is to apply for a single K1 visa only even if it is possible to apply for more than one. This is so because the United States Immigration may give doubt on your real intentions if your applications come in multitude.

Timing is also essential in your application so if there are no marriage plans yet, it is best for you to postpone the K1 visa request because if granted with a K1 visa, you and your fiancé will have to get married within 90 days after her arrival in the United States.

But if you really wish to apply for multiple K1 visa then you must proceed with the whole process with a waiver.

The waiver that the United States Citizen must execute in order to apply for Multiple K1 Visas

  • If you are the US citizen petitioner for a K1 visa, you can apply for a second K1 visa petition over 2 years after approval of your first K1 visa petition. If you want to file a K1 petition in less than two years, you will have to apply for a waiver of this rule. Also, if you have filed two or more K1 visa petitions at any time in the past, you will need to apply for a waiver. Although you can technically apply for unlimited K1 visas, it is complicated to apply for more than 2.
  • To request a waiver, you must submit a signed and dated written request with your K1 visa petition accompanied by documentation of your claim to the waiver. The written request must explain why the waiver is appropriate in your situation.

For example:

You were previously granted for a K1 Visa for your fiancé but unfortunately, she passed away. On this instance, you will have to explain the circumstances surrounding her death and also you must provide for a death certificate as proof of her passing. You may also provide additional evidence, if there are any, of her death such as police reports, news articles or a medical report from a licensed medical practitioner.

  • The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services may not grant you a waiver if you have committed violence to anyone unless you can convince the agency that you have committed such act in self-defense as a result from extreme cruelty and mistreatment from your partner, parent or adult child. You must establish that you were not the primary perpetrator of the violent acts that happened in the said relationship or that the committed crime did not result to serious bodily harm.

To help prove your contest, you can also submit police reports, court records, news articles or transcripts of the court hearing if the said issues reached the courts.

  • If you are a foreign fiancé of a United States citizen who have applied for a K1 visa for you, you cannot apply for a K1 visa yourself at the same time.

Also, if two US citizens each filed for a K1 visa for you at the same time and both received approval of their petitions, you will still not be granted with a visa interview with their petitions be returned to the USCIS.
