- Have a pending Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, filed by the U.S. citizen spouse on his or her behalf
A child may be eligible for a K-4 visa if:
He or she is unmarried and under the age of 21, and the child of a qualified K-3 non-immigrant visa applicant.
Benefits and Limitations of K-3/K-4 Non-immigrant Visa
The benefits of the K-3/K-4 visa include:
Once admitted to the United States, K-3 non-immigrant's may apply to adjust status to a permanent resident at any time. Upon admission to the United States, K-4 non-immigrant's may file an application for adjustment of status concurrently with or at any time after a Form I-130 has been filed on his or her behalf by the U.S. citizen petitioner.
Upon admission, K-3 and K-4 non-immigrant visa holders may obtain employment authorization. They can obtain evidence of eligibility to work legally in the United States by filing Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization. Upon filing an application for adjustment of status, K-3 and K-4 non-immigrant visa holders may also apply for employment authorization based on that pending application even if the K-3 or K-4 non-immigrant status expires.
