A US citizen is eligible to apply for a K1 visa to immigrate a foreign fiance to the US for marriage. After marriage, the foreigner is welcome to remain in the US and apply for a green card, thereby becoming a U.S. permanent resident based on the marriage.
One important requirement is that the couple must have met in person within the past two years, with few exceptions. Also, the US citizen must earn enough income to support the foreigner while in the US. Foreign fiances who have minor dependent children may accompany the fiance to the U.S. or follow to join within one year.
