Fiance visa is a non-immigrant visa for fiances of U.S. Citizens. K-1 or Fiance Visa allows a non US citizen to travel to the U.S. and marry his or her fiance within 90 days of arrival. The arriving fiance must marry the U.S. Citizen Sponsor within 90 days of arrival. As long as the arriving fiance meet certain requirements, he or she can apply for adjustment of status within the U.S. after marrying the U.S. Citizen sponsor within 90 days of arrival. As K-1 visa holder is allowed temporary stay in the U.S. until the expiration of the K-1 stay, he or she does not has to leave the country to obtain Immigrant Visa which is why it is an attractive option for most U.S. citizen sponsors who wish to immigrate their fiances to the U.S.

Separate petitions for each applicant i.e. K-2 visa hodlers must be submitted.
K-1 visa holders may also apply for work authorization after their initial entry to the U.S. i.e. within the first 90 days of stay in the U.S.
