The main condition of a fiancé visa is that the couple must marry within 90 days of the immigrant’s arrival to the US. After the marriage, they  would be allowed to petition for a green card in the same way that one would in any other marriage. Additionally, they will have to show that the relationship is legitimate. In other words, the same types of proof required for proving the validity of a marriage would be necessary. In addition, it would have to be shown that the immigrant and US citizen met at least one time within the two years leading up to the filing of the petition.

Can The Wife Of A US Citizen Come To Live In The United States?

If you are not married yet, it may be better to petition for a fiancé visa first, and then marry after your fiancé comes to the United States. The fiancé visa is more expensive, but gets them here faster.

The US citizen spouse must petition for the immigrant spouse properly and generally must complete the whole process before the immigrant spouse can come. She cannot just decide to come to the US one day.  It might be possible to visit before the green card process is complete, for up to six months, by getting a tourist visa. A tourist visa is a single intent visa, which means it should not be obtained with the plan of remaining in the US. The government will be skeptical about someone who is applying for a tourist visa when they already have a green card petition pending, and will require proof of intent to return to the home country to wait for the green card process to finish.
