Marriage Visa - Frequently Asked Questions

I want to apply for a K3/CR1 Spouse visa but we both live abroad. Do I need a primary U.S. residence or can I still apply?


Yes, you will need a primary U.S. residence (or domicile) when you apply for your K3/CR1 spouse visa.

USCIS states that as a U.S. sponsor or petitioner you must have a principal residence (or domicile) in the U.S. This is the place you plan to live in the foreseeable future.
