Yamir has been in the US since 2014 when he married Chelsea, and was able to stay in the country even though they got a divorce.
Most 90 Day Fiance cast that have come over on the K-1 visa have obtained two-year green cards that need to be renewed for a ten-year green card after that initial two years. The fact that Yamir was able to secure American citizenship means he must have gone through a more rigorous process with different requirements than most people on 90 Day Fiance went through.
