Financial Requirements K1 Visa

Financial Requirements K1 VisaThe financial requirements for the K1 Visa differ from state to state in the US. It also differ if you are in the US military or not. Those in the US military have a lower financial requirement. Over the years we have done more than 70 applications for US Marines out of our Bangkok office for those stationed either in the US or in Korea and Japan.

The financial requirements for the K1 Fiancee Visa is listed as follows in the following tables which was last years tables for those who need to be above the poverty line in the US. If you have any questions ask our Us attorney in Bangkok for more information. You can call toll-free out of the US or speak to a paralegal online now. If you cannot make the poverty line based on a salary then you can also use investments to show income such as shares, ownership of a motorcar or any equity in your house. If you have a 100,000 USD house and you have paid off 60% then you have 40,000 USD in equity based on the mortgage bond or if the property value is 200,000 USD today then you have equity of 140,000 USD in the property. Allow our immigration lawyer to work this out for you if you do no make the poverty level on your salary alone.

If you are in the military you only need to make the base income as listed and not 125% that everyone else has too meet.

Exception:  In all cases, U.S. military personnel may earn at or over the base levels set by HHS.
