and Where to Marry

What happens if I have accrued unlawful presence in the U.S. before applying for a K-3 visa?

You would be subject to the three year bar if you have accrued more than 180 days, or a ten-year bar if you have accrued one year or more of unlawful presence in the U.S. However, you may apply for a waiver.


Where do I apply for K-3 visa when the American Consulate in the country where my marriage took place does not issue visas?

You may apply for K-3 visa at the consular post designated to handle "homeless" immigrant visa cases for nationals of that country.

Note: If your marriage occurred outside the U.S. your K-3 visa must be issued by the American consulate in the country where the marriage occurred
