I-130 Administratively closed.

8 posts in this topic Register to Ask a Question

We filed k1 3 years ago they put our case in admin process for long 2.5 years after my visa interview in Islamabad U.S embassy, due to long delay we decided to marry when we marry 2nd day i got update email they approved the visa but according to the rule i sent letter to cancel k1, letter when we wife went back U.S we filed I-130 Now my question is "IR1/CR1 is administratively close", does that mean I-130 can't get again into admin process after visa interview ?

Where are you getting that the IR1/CR1 is administrativly closed? If you submitted an I-129 along with an I-130 (i.e. the old K3 process) then the I-130 would be administratively closed, but that is completely different than the IR1/CR1 visa. Did you already have the visa interview for the K1?

No i am following new process. according to that no need to file k3 along I-130. check out k3 is administratively close

http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/types/types_2993.html

is the I-130 administratively closed, truly?

or is it the I-129F / K-1 visa that is truly closed?

Important Notice: Effective February 1st, 2010, when both petitions have been approved by USCIS and sent to the NVC or when USCIS approves the I-130 before the I-129F, the availability of, as well as the need for, a nonimmigrant K-3 visa ends. If the NVC receives both an approved I-130 petition and an approved I-129F petition:

The nonimmigrant K-3 visa case will be administratively closed.

The application process explained below will not be available to the foreign-citizen spouse and cannot be used.

The NVC will contact the U.S. citizen sponsor and foreign-citizen spouse, with instructions for processing the IR-1 (or CR-1) immigrant visa. For more information on the immigrant visa process, review the Immigrant Visa for a Spouse webpage.

this covers paperwork traffic between USCIS and NVC, at NVC.

IF you were chasing after the K-3 visa, yer supposed to submit a I-129F to USCIS after getting the receipt notice on the I-130.

Then, since USCIS is now really efficient with their namechecks and much automation from the FBI, these two petitions are approved same day at USCIS and travel to NVC together.

When the casefiles hit NVC, the I-129F is administratively closed by NVC, as the BASIS for a K-3 visa, an unapproved I-130, no longer exists. They have been doing this since 1 FEB 2010, can you let us know how this directly affects you or your casefiles?

This stuff is not tied into yer prior K-1 attempt, at all.

Finally, I think you've gotten some of the terms mixed up , ie

"IR1/CR1 is administratively close"

is never the same thing as

K-3 administratively closed

as they are two different, distinct visa types.

Yes you are correct i was mixing both things.

As you said once i-130 approved and notice received my sponsor can file I-129F but my question is is filing k3 still fruitefull as it was before ? or now forget about k3 b/c now I-130 getting approved in 5 months and basic purpose of k3 is finished.

Don't bother pursuing a K3. Let the I-130 run it's course.
