Waiver approval after interview?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello VJ so June 18th was my k-1 interview- it has been 34 days post interview and still no Visa:

Last status update June 30,2015 from AP to READY (for interview)

I have called consulate and sent emails- today got a response from ustraveldocs stating:

---------------

The case is pending the waiver approval directly from USCIS. As soon as we recieve the confirmation, we will contact you with the instructions.

We regret the inconvenience.

---------------

Just wondering if anyone knows what "waiver" this could be and why it's holding up the visa so long. I never requested nor applied for a waiver

Is there any reason why you would have had to apply for a waiver? Have you ever been to the US? Did the topic of a waiver come up during interview? I would reply directly to that email and ask what the waiver is for being that you never applied or requested one.

The topic of a waiver was never brought up: I never applied for one and in the interview it was never mentioned. I was born in the US however my fiancée has never traveled out of the Dominican Republic. It's just concerning because we are now 35 days post interview and no visa has been issued. Last case update was on June 30th from AP TO READY (for interview) this is so confusing I try to educate myself on this visa process but no where have I seen a "waiver" issue pertaining to my case k-1

This is definitely out of the norm for a k-1 visa. Waivers are requested when like a person was deported or they overstayed on their visa, things that would keep them out of the U.S., they apply for a waiver to overcome that restriction. Try to find out why they are wanting to process a waiver.

None of this applies to us though. I resent an email requesting more information. This whole post interview stage is just ODD- I thought we were almost close to the end but from the looks of it things are just getting complicated. ?
