How to Get an American Fiancé(e) Visa

Moving home with your fiancé(e) involves 3 governmental agencies – US Citizenship and Immigration Services, Dept. of State (DOS), and US Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

You must first file a Petition for Alien Fiancé(e) (Form I-129F), which leads to a K-1 nonimmigrant visa, AKA the "fiancé(e) visa".

The process can be made easier by talking to an immigration lawyer.

Who Can Use the Citizenship Disability Exemption Form?

Citizenship Disability Exemption Form Requirements

People with a mental or physical disability lasting 12 months or longer don't need to meet the English and civics requirements for United States naturalization.

The disability must be "medically determinable", and a medical professional must sign a disability exception form confirming this no more than 6 months before the application is filed.

The Federal STEM Plan and the Role of Immigrants in the US Workforce

The US government says that between 2020 and 2030, America will need 1 million more science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workers. Immigrants help fill these jobs and the Biden government has a plan to attract them.

The American Immigration Council made guides on the government’s 5 STEM plans:

Matching US companies looking to host non-immigrant J-1 exchange visitors
22 fields of study added to the STEM Optional Practical Training (OPT) program
Updated how the USCIS decides eligibility for O-1 visas
USCIS policy update on national interest waivers (NIWs) for immigrants with advanced STEM degrees, letters from US government agencies or organizations, or who are entrepreneurs
Additional 36 months of study for J-1 exchange visitors

They also made a factsheet on immigrant STEM workers that showed the following:

Immigrant STEM workers increased from 1.2 million to 2.5 million between 2000 to 2019. They went from being 16.4% of all STEM workers to 23.1%.

While 67.3% of US-born STEM workers have at least a bachelor’s degree, 86.5% of immigrant STEM workers do.
