typically within 90 days of application and yes it can take the entire 90 day period

This is one of the BIG reasons I tell people to AVOID K-3, and simply do CR-1 visa, for the most part CR-1 tends to take about 30 days longer to get.

For the most part CR-1 tends to take a bit longer than K-3 to get if you prepare for NVC when they request I-864 fee, and Visa fee, as well as documents requested by NVC. In many cases the CR-1 petition reaches the consulate just before K-3 interview, which causes K-3 to get dropped and the interview becomes a CR-1 visa interview.

K-3:

I-130: $355

I-129F: NONE

Consulate: $131

AOS: $1010

($1496)

CR-1

I-130: $355

NVC I-864: $70

NVC Visa fee: $400 ($355+$45)

($825)

I see many posts from K-3 holders stating, "Wow this sucks, I am stuck at home because I don't have EAD, DL, etc, or I am having hard time getting added to bank accounts because of NO SSN." K-3 has a 90 day or longer period of limbo while waiting for EAD or Green-card.

K-3 was developed at a time when CR-1 was taking much longer that today, NVC has greatly streamlined the CR-1 process to the point where K-3 becomes irrelevant.

Curious what state are you from? Some states DO allow K3 visaholders to get a license......
Most require SSN, but yes the K-3 I-94 should be good for evidence of legal presence, K-3 I-94 tends to be valid for 2 years.

lol my wife was able to kill a lot of what would have been idle time studying for the learners permit then learning to drive on the "correct" side of the road <hoping she don't see this post> while waiting on EAD to come in. We're lucky to be in Texas though, no SS# required to get a DL, only 180 day valid I94.

That's not always the case. It all depends on the consulate. In Oct when my wife was given a Nov K3 interview, CR 1 interviews were fully booked for the year.
