How to Apply

Because a fiancé(e) visa permits the holder to immigrate to the U.S. and marry a U.S. citizen shortly after arrival in the United States, the fiancé(e) must meet some of the requirements of an immigrant visa. Eligible children of K-1 visa applicants receive K-2 visas.

You must submit the following documents for you and for any accompanying children in advance of your appointment:

  1. Two new photographs matching the U.S. immigration specifications as described on the following webpage:
  2. Valid passport (valid for six months beyond the anticipated interview date).
  3. Visa fee. K visa application fees should be paid at the nearest branch of Cairo-Amman throughout Jordan in advance of the interview. Please visit before paying the fee.
  4. Proof of relationship. Please bring proof of ongoing meaningful relationship between you and your relative demonstrating a bona fide relationship (photos, emails, letters, phone bills, money wiring, etc.)
  5. Visa form. Please fill out a DS-160 online application. The State Department web page ( has more information and instructions on how to use the DS-160.
  6. Medical examination. Arrange for a medical examination to be completed by one of the physicians listed below in the next section “Medical Examination”. Please do NOT submit the X-ray film, but only the medical reports. Please present your immunization card to the panel physician.
  7. Civil status certificate from the Civil Registry Office (original or copy certified by issuing authority) and one extra photocopy. English translation, if the original is not in English.
  8. Birth Certificate (original or copy certified by issuing authority) and one extra photocopy. English translation, if the original is not in English. If you have children, you must obtain a birth certificate for each child.
  9. Civil marriage certificate, if applicable (original or copy certified by issuing authority) and one extra photocopy. English translation, if the original is not in English.
  10. Previous marriage and/or divorce certificates (original or copy certified by issuing authority) and one extra photocopy. English translation, if the original is not in English. If you or the petitioner were previously married, you must provide marriage certificates and evidence of termination of all previous marriages.
  11. Evidence of support: Evidence that will show that you are not likely to become dependent upon government support while living in the United States. Generally, you should provide an affidavit of support (Form I-134) from the petitioner accompanied with a copy of their complete federal income tax returns for the most recent year, W-2 forms, and a letter from their employer. You may also provide the following: a letter from the petitioner’s employer or evidence that they will be self-supporting; evidence of assets available to you in the U.S; proof of your educational qualifications and/or vocational skills.
  12. Police certificate(s) or Certificate of Non-Conviction: This requirement applies only to periods of residence after attaining the age of 16. Applicants living in Jordan will submit a certificate of non-conviction instead of a Jordanian Police Certificate. Submit a certificate from your country of current residence, if residence exceeds six months, and from your country of nationality, if different from the country of current residence and if residence in the country of nationality exceeds six months. Additionally, a police certificate is required from any country of previous residence in which an applicant lived for one year of more after attaining the age of 16. (See Reciprocity by Country at this website: To obtain a Jordanian Certificate of Non-Conviction, applications can be submitted online through the Jordanian Government’s official website at or by phone through the National Call Center: 06-500-8080. Applicants can also obtain the certificate at the local court (mahkamet al bedaya) in the area where they are residing. In the absence of a liaison office in the court, applicants should go to Public Security Directorate office in their area. The certificate is available to resident Jordanian citizens and foreigners regardless of their length of stay. Applicants outside Jordan may approach the Jordanian Embassy in that country for instructions on obtaining the certificate of non-conviction. English translation required, if the original is not in English.

Effective February 6, 2012, the U.S. Embassy in Damascus suspended operations and closed for most routine consular services. Visas to the United States can no longer be issued in Damascus. 

Some visa applicants traveling from Syria have encountered difficulties arriving in Amman for their immigrant visa interviews.  The U.S. Embassy in Amman is liaising with the Jordanian authorities and Royal Jordanian to facilitate the entry of immigrant visa applicants arriving by air with scheduled interviews in Amman.   While we cannot guarantee their entry into Jordan, we can inform the Jordanian authorities that immigrant visa applicants will be entering Jordan via Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) on a specific date for an immigrant visa interview.

Syrian K1 visa applicants with interviews at Embassy Amman should follow instructions that they will receive by email from the U.S. Embassy Consular Section.  We encourage Syrian visa applicants to fly with Royal Jordanian Airlines from Beirut to Amman on flights 406 or 408.  They should carry their interview appointment letter with them when traveling.  Some visa applicants have encountered difficulties making it to their interviews when they have attempted to fly with other airlines, use other airports, or cross by land.  We cannot facilitate entry to Jordan for reasons other than a scheduled immigrant visa interview.

If Lebanese or Jordanian authorities have denied your entry into Lebanon or Jordan, or if Royal Jordanian has refused to allow you to board the aircraft, or if you have been informed that you are not on the appointment list, or you have any other issue, please do not call the U.S. Embassy because there is no action that we can take at that moment.  Instead, when you are able, please send us an email at that explains your situation so that we can address your concerns.  Do not worry, you will not lose your place in line for an appointment!
