Marriage Visa - Frequently Asked Questions
I am a U.S. citizen and I want to apply for K1 visa for my fiance who is in the Philippines, but I don't know if I make enough to meet the financial requirements. What is the minimum income requirement?
Answer:The K1 Visa requires you are able to support your fiance when they come to the U.S. and not be a burden on the State. You can use your income and assets to prove you are above the 125% HHS poverty guidelines. This past year the amount was $18,912 USD.
