How to obtain a Fiancée Visa
* The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) was briefly known as the U.S. Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services (BCIS) until 10/2003. Prior to being named the BCIS this U.S. government agency was long known as the Immigration and Nationalization Service (INS). Basically any reference to the USCIS, BCIS and INS are speaking of the same U.S. Government agency however anything you may read with reference to the BCIS or INS could be outdated or inaccurate information.
