arrowK1 visa dead line

In early July 2016, my fiancé received her K1 visa, which is valid for 6 months. Her visa expiration date is set for 7 December 2016. She is planning on arriving to the states in early October 2016. As soon as she arrives we are planning for the wedding and immediately submit all the necessary documents to apply for the US Residency card (Green Card). My main concern is her visa expiration date. Even though we have met the requirement of getting married within the 90 days of her arrival into the US and the documents for the Green Card have been submitted, will she have to return back to her country because her K1 visa has expired or can we apply for an extension for her visa to allow her to stay in the US until the Green Card paper work has been processed?


Please assist.

Hello everyone!


I need your guidance. I just received a letter from the NVC stating that they will now be forwarding our petition to the embassy in Moscow. I'm not sure what to do/expect next because the letter did not specify any further instructions/actions that I should take. Also, I checked the Consular Electronic Application Center (CEAC) and at one point and time it said TRANSFERRING. Now its saying READY. What does that mean?

Looking forward to your feedback. Thanks in advance!

arrowBringing Sibling of Naturalized Citizen to America.

Hi! It's my first time writing here on this topic. I started my journey 7 years ago and now waiting for my Oath Ceremony. ( last 4 years I spent on this site but in a different thread) At the same time, I know nearly nothing about bringing family members to US. I will definitely do a research, but if someone can guide me please, I will appreciate. What are my chances of bringing my sister to the US? She just turned 17. Do I need a  lawyer (both of my GCs and Naturalization papers I did myself) ?? What is a time frame, I have read somewhere it can take up to 7-10 years, wich is ridiculous.


Thank you, I would love to hear your opinion, dear visa journey community.

arrowAbout when can I expect the interview?

I have received my NOA1.


If all goes well, when can I expect to do the interview in Russia?


I am sure that my time line gives this information, but I am not certain of the answer.  I have updated it with all information that I have.


I want to go there for the Interview for two reasons:  One, I want to be there to ensure it all goes well.  Two: I want to see my Fiance again.  Makes sense to me!


Also, she lives closest to Yekaterinburg. However, the Embassy site says that they do not do K1 interviews, and that we would have to do it in Moscow.  Is this correct?

Had the interview at the embassy in Moscow this morning. After waiting an hour, the interview was over in a few minutes and it was approved!!


A HUGE THANK YOU is due to this forum for all the help we received  from reading about the experiences of others 


We submitted the I-130 in early January 2016 and so the whole process took much less time than we had feared -- less than seven months. Again, we avoided many pitfalls by following the experiences of others.


Our case was a little complicated in that we were both working in Honduras and my wife is from Russia. So we had a couple of complications. First to change the embassy allocated to us from Tegucigalpa to Moscow. And also to obtain both Honduras and Russia police certificates.


Thanks again to everyone!
