Many inhabitants of many nations require visas in order to visit or live in the United States. Visas are stamps in your passport that allow you to visit different countries. A US visa allows you to visit or live in the United States. You cannot enter the United States with a US visa. Officials at any U.S. point of entry determine this, and they have the authority to hold and return you if they have a reason. Security fears or other suspicions are common explanations. If you meet all of the requirements and do not constitute a threat to the United States, its people, or tourists, you will be allowed to enter with a visa.

WHAT IS AN IMMIGRANT VISA?
Immigrant visas allow their holders to stay in the United States indefinitely. Whereas a nonimmigrant visa requires the holder to return to their home country when it expires, an immigrant visa does not. It allows you to live, work, and study in the United States, as well as engage in any other activity you desire.
You do not need to renew or extend your immigrant visa once you have obtained it. It is valid indefinitely unless you engage in illegal activity in the United States, in which case your immigrant visa will be revoked. The immigrant visa does not require you to stay in the United States, but you can travel in and out of the country whenever you want without fear of having your visa revoked or cancelled as long as you have a valid Re-entry Permit. Furthermore, if you live in the United States for a specified period of time without committing any violations, you can apply for citizenship and, if approved, you will become a U.S. citizen.
K-1 Visa: Fiance Visa USA The K1 visa is given to a person engaged to a U.S citizen to go to the U.S for 90 days. During those 90 days, the couple is expected to be married so as to start filing for the petition to get a spouse visa.

While this petition is being processed, the spouse can obtain a K-3 visa so as to be able to live in the U.S.
