Passport K3 Visa for residency

Is the K3 visa acceptable for residency programs? I want to know that because I know if I applied for J1 visa I can't change it to K3 visa unless I get a waiver..

Of course K3 visa is a spouce non immigrant visa

Well, I am no expert, but I think what you should be asking is : Are you allowed to work under k3 visa? If yes then I guess it would be fine for residency!

Even J1 visa is no good if your admission form says ( say by mistake of an airport officer ) that you are not allowed to work
I did it !
