A fiancee visa can be obtained by a United States Citizen to bring a boyfriend or girlfriend into the US to get married. If the couple marries within 90 days of entry, the fiancee can adjust status after marriage and obtain a conditional green card. To start the fiancee visa process, form I-129f is filed with the USCIS service center having jurisdiction over the state where the American citizen resides.

After the consulate issues the fiancee visa, the applicant can enter the US, marry, and continue with the green card process.
