To apply for a K-1 Visa, the US citizen fiancé(e) must first mail a visa petition on behalf of the foreign fiancé(e). Then after the petition is approved, the foreign fiancé(e) must fill out subsequent forms. An interview then takes place and a K-1 Visa is ultimately granted. Note again that the K-1 Fiancé(e) Visa cannot be renewed and the marriage must take place within the allotted 90 days.

Fiancé and Fiancée
The K-1 Visa applies to both Fiancée and Fiancé of United States citizens. To mitigate confusion when reading the terms, please keep these terms in mind:
Fiancé: This refers to a man who is engaged to be married.
Fiancée: The refers to a woman who is engaged to be married
Fiancé(e): This refers to both male and female fiancés.
K-1 Fiancé(e) Eligibility Requirements: First and foremost, the intended spouse MUST be a United States Citizen. Both members must be legally able to be married, and there must be a genuine intention of marrying. Until the actual marriage takes place, the fiancé(e) is considered a non-immigrant. A non-immigrant is a foreign national seeking to temporarily enter the United States for a specific purpose. A fiancé(e) may not obtain an extension of the 90-day original non-immigrant admission.
After the marriage takes place, the foreign national fiancé must file for Adjustment of Status. Then after Adjustment of Status approval, fiancée may apply for Green Card through Marriage to become a U.S. Citizen.
This process can also be done via the E-Filling service provided by US Immigration Organization.
