The process has changed a couple times but the current policy is to put both petitions together and approve them the same day if possible. K3 is a visa, not a petition. You would be filing an I-130 petition and if you really want a K3 visa, an I-129F petition using the "for a spouse" instructions.

well..I have a question..I know USCIS gives approvals of the both petition at the same day more or less. What is the benefit then? Does it help to schedule an interview earlier? Otherwise, what can be done if the I-130 and I129f get approved the same day?

Good question!

Actually doesn't make much difference in the final out come as the I-130 can get hung up at NVC for an undetermined time depending on how deligent you are with the paperwork.

I-129F normally moves out of NVC automatically to your embassy.


K1 denied, K3/K4, CR-1/CR-2, AOS, ROC, Adoption, US citizenship and dual citizenship

End of the day, I may not have issued K3 by the CO (non-immigrant visa issuance solely depends on luck though) and may have to wait till the NVC work is done...Everything is so uncertain....

I don't know about other countries, but here in Bangladesh, I will be the first one ever to have asked for a k3, in their website they don't have such catagory of non-immigrant visa :blush: . Funny HUH!!! So, lets see....

The visa process is quite different for the two petitions after USCIS approval.
