There are a number of benefits associated with the K-3 visa or K-4 visa, also known as the fiancé(e) visa.
- K-3 visa applicants may apply to adjust status to a permanent resident at any time after being admitted to the United States.
- A K-4 nonimmigrants may file their application for adjustment of status concurrently upon admission to the United States. The application may be filed with or at any time after a Petition for Alien Relative has been filed on his or her behalf by the U.S. citizen spouse petitioner.
- K-3 and K-4 nonimmigrant visa holders may both obtain employment authorization upon admission to the United States. Evidence of eligibility to work legally in the United States may be obtained by filing an Application for Employment Authorization, or EAD.
- K-3 and K-4 nonimmigrant visa holders may also apply for employment authorization after filing an application for adjustment of status, based on that pending application. This is possible even if the K-3 or K-4 nonimmigrant status expires.
