Typical Interview wait time

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am in the process of finishing up my package to submit for my fiancee's K-1 Visa. She's living in Korea but she's Filipina. She'll go through the consulate in Seoul for her interview. I'm curious what the typical wait time is for an interview once the K-1 is approved. Is this something that happens shortly after approval or does it take a couple of months to get an interview date?

Thanks for the help. I'm fearing a long wait for everything, as it looks like the case file dates from TX and CA (I have to go through TX) haven't adjusted at all over the last month. At least I get to see her for a few weeks next month. :dance:

Check out the immigration timeline on top of the page It can give a rough idea on how long is the wait

But don’t forget every case is different and your might get done fast

i don't think there is any typical wait time. if you give yourself one, and it doesn't come in the time you expect, you're setting yourself up for a lot of unneeded frustration

I understand, I'm just looking for some kind of a timeline here. I wouldn't be expecting a certain date, just looking to gauge how long the wait generally takes.

Yeah, I see that there's quite a variance. Some happened just days after the approval while others took four to six months.

Ditto about the timelines.

Check here and then do some guessing on your own part.

You will not know until it happens.

The most important thing is having the I-129F rock solid so there are no RFEs.

I can tell you that a friend who assists others in this said it's 4 - 6 months on average depending on the Service Center you submit through AND their work load to go from the SC getting the Petitoin package to the Interview.

I'm sure there are other factors like the background check on the Sponsor; that's you.

I spoke with a guy I know who went through this from the west coast and it took him 7 months to get to last January and the Interview with no RFEs and a solid Petition package.

And just because the Interview happens is no guarantee the visa is given within a few days.

Read the posts here over the past few months and you'll see the frustration of some who went through it only to having to wait for weeks or months longer.

It's a ####### shoot.

There are averages.

I wish for your process to be a speedy one! :thumbs:

How thorough is the background check? I'm in the military, so I've been through plenty in my 16 years of service. I'm just wondering how extensive they are.

Thanks for the info...I'm trying to keep my fiancee in the know but all this stuff can get kind of confusing if you aren't familiar with the process.
