K1 Visa Vietnam

The K-1 visa was designed to facilitate the reunification of bi-national couples in the United States of America. The visa itself is somewhat similar to a US Marriage Visa, but the holder of a K1 fiance visa is, by definition, not yet the spouse of an American Citizen. Therefore, those Vietnamese Nationals entering the United States of America on a K1 visa are not considered Lawful Permanent Residents until such time as an adjustment of status petition has been approved.

Those interested in obtaining a K-1 visa should note that the basis for issuing such a travel document contingent upon the prospective Vietnamese beneficiary having a bona fide relationship with an American Citizen. Therefore, proving that such a relationship exists is a central issue during an adjudication at the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS). Furthermore, the subjective intentions of the prospective Vietnamese beneficiary could be an issue during the adjudication of a visa application at the United States Consulate in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC). Therefore, a Vietnamese fiancees ability to clearly and concisely explain their genuine intentions at a K-1 visa interview can be a major factor in streamlining the adjudication of a visa application.

Those interested in the K-1 visa are well advised to research the issues surrounding United States Immigration as doing so facilitates informed decision making which is always prudent. It should also be noted that a United States immigration petition and visa application should be based upon a need for immigration benefits which spring from a bona fide relationship. Thus, no one should seek American immigration benefits based upon a pretextual relationship which is simply entered into for the purpose of obtaining a United States visa. Also, dishonesty in a visa application or petition could lead to severe penalties for parties concerned. Such penalties could be imposed in the form of inadmissibility to the USA for the Vietnamese beneficiaries, fines, or even criminal sanctions.

Some bi-national couples find that the assistance of an American attorney during the K1 visa process is substantially beneficial as an American attorney can provide insight into the overall process and interface with relevant government officials where necessary. Those interested in retaining professional assistance are well advised to check the credentials of those claiming expertise in American immigration matters as only a licensed American attorney is qualified to provide advice and counsel on matters coming before the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) or Visa Unit of the United States Department of State.
