What is the expiration date of petition on the visa

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

On the K1 visa that's attached to the beneficiary's passport there are 2 dates:

1 - The visa expiration date

And

2 - The petition expiration date

The petition expiration date is earlier than the visa expiration date. Is it correct to assume that she needs to arrive at the POE before the visa expiration date?

What is the purpose of the petition expiration date?

Where abouts on it is the petition expiration date? Mine didn't have that on there, only the visa expiration. An approved K-1 petition expires four months from approval but the visa doesn't expire until six months after issue. So, unless you're passport is about to expire then you should have six months in which to use the K-1.

In the annotation section at the bottom of the visa, they printed the petitioner's name and expiration date of the petition.

The visa expiration date is 6 months less one day from the date of the medical, not 6 months from the date the visa was issued. We were interviewed in late November 2011 and was in AP for 2.5 months, and the visa expiration date is early May because the medical was done early November.

Either way she plans to be here before either dates. I'm just curious as to why they put it on there and whether it's significant. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I had her kids on the original petition but didn't follow through with it and need to do something before the petition expiration date if I were to change my mind...

OP - The petition expiration is just that. It has four months after it's approved. In theory, the visa should be issue within this time frame. If it goes beyond the 4 months, the CO can extend it.

The visa expirations date indicates that visa must be used before date. Typically 6 months after it is issued.
