Visa Journey represents what %

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a idea of the total number of K1 applications that CSC receives monthly. It would be interesting to know how many find Visa Journey, and also to know what CSC's monthly work load is at the moment.

I don't think anyone on this site would have access to that information.

CSC does a lot more than just process fiance visa applications. Have you ever looked at the number of visas that are available? Plus there are Adjustment of Status applications, Employment Authorizations, foreign adoptions, etc. Then there is the number of immigrants in California to consider.

I may not have that exact info but you may find this data to be interesting that Mew posted September 1

I just thought it was interesting.

Petitions handled by each SC

Table from USCIS showing entries on K1 in 2005 (among other visas). They even have data sorted by state.

According to that source, there were 32,900 K1 entrants in 2005. Suppose that this is a reasonable guess of how many applications they have.

Looking at the Immigration Timelines, we have 1150 applications so far in 2006, which will probably mean about 1500 for the year. Thus we are about 5% of the applications.

When presidential polls are done of 100,000,000 voters (a guess), they poll about 1000-1500 people, and get results that are accurate within 3%. If our membership is typical of K1 applicants, then analysis of our applications is probably a pretty good picture of what's going on with all applicants.

Overall, Internet users may be more affluent and/or computer savy than others. But if you don't meet the poverty guidelines (directly or with help), then you probably won't start the process. Thus it would surprise me if VJ members are substantially different than the rest of the applicant pool.

Also some steps in the process are totally independent of income. For instance, a name check at NVC or shipment to a consulate are the same, no matter your income.

Tom,

You never cease to amaze me how you can say things that I want to say, but I somehow cannot find the words you do to say it.

We are on the same page here.

As VJ seems to be the best source of information available to K1 applicants anywhere around, I'd guess VJ members might statistically have a bit easier time getting approved.

Not to be rude, but I am not personally worried about getting a approval:) I think approvals are a done deal except in extreme cases.

I am worried most about the time that it takes for this process. Based upon previously quoted stats on average there are over 2,500 K1 visas received a month and a ton more of other types of requests processed at these same locations.

I know I have just started this process, and many are still waiting from March. It is tough waiting and I guess I am looking for a justification to be optimistic that we wont have to wait till next year to get approved. I just do not understand how VSC can be so fast, while supposedly the same goverment entity at CSC is so slow.

I will see my fiance next week for 10 days, which is great, but it will make each day after the visit even tougher than it has already been.

According to the USCIS web site, the most recent statistics available are from May 2006. The service does not distinguish between I-130 and I-129 visa applications so it can be a little confusing. But the May 2006 report shows 68,375 I-130/I-129F applications. The pending applications as of May 2006 from this catagory is set at 1,144,869.

Now, does that put things a little more in perspective. By the way, the total pending applications of all kinds at the end of May was 2,881,253. If they are moving faster it is getting hard to see it.
