How much money do you need to sponsor a K-1 visa?


To sponsor a K-1 visa, the U.S. citizen must have an annual income meeting of at least 100% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines for their household size.

Note that the income threshold does vary, depending on on factors such as the number of dependents in your household. 

If you fail to meet this income requirement, you can enlist a joint sponsor to help fulfill the income level required.
