K-1 Question in regards to location when applying

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

So I have a question in regards to the K-1 visa application in regards to location at the time of application. So my fiance is currently in the USA on an F1 student visa, however she will finish here in a few months, and then she will go back to her country for her last semester of university to graduate from her university. So I was searching and I found that after you're approved and receive the K-1 visa, you have around 5-6 months to enter the U.S. with it. So what I want to know is whether or not it's possible to start the K-1 application while my fiance is still in the USA or not. Obviously she would be in the U.S. when it started, but by the time it is approved she would be back in her home country of Japan. If we could get a head start on it, it would be great since she could receive it before graduation, giving us to time to plan some things and giving her the opportunity to come to the USA as soon as she graduates rather than waiting until she returns to her country, potentially making her have to wait some time after graduation before she could come here. I look forward to your responses! Thanks so much for your time.

Depending on which service centre you are assigned to, Texas will take about 6-8 months for I-129f(very first step in visa process) so expect the entire process to take at least 10 months. If you are fortunate and are assigned to California the I129f takes about 20days to 2months on average and could be approved in as little as 5 months. Check the forums and do your research as to which service centre you'll be assigned to, then you can make a rough estimate.
