I hear of this government is gona shut down and stuff. Does anyone know, will it affect K-1 visa and entry to the USA. Immigration is consider federal, so will it slow down the process or mess up anyone about to enter USA of a Visa? I hope not cuz my girl is about to be here first week of may.

If you have a visa and are planning to enter the US...no affect. If you are in the process, yes it would delay things, wherever you are. Visa issuance is not an essential function of the government, border protection IS. They are not going to close PsOE.

Gary, would you mind confirming again what your acquaintances who work for VSC have told you about the impact on them? TIA.

If the government shutsdown it will be for a week or less, and certainly not more than 2 weeks.

Yes, when the government shutdown in 1995 it lasted for less than a week. Let's just hope that is how long it will last this time. Here is another link of what will remain open and closed.
