everyone is distraut over the timeline, but if you want to be together, short of living in their country, its just something you have to deal with.

the process is 90-120 from filing to approval/denial can be more, some have waited 8 months and more...then you go to NVC and that can take time depending on if you end up in AR...then you wait for interview time and from there you could end up in AR or get the visa.

No one can tell you the exact timeline. Its either something worth doing, or its not.

yes i do understand that...im willing to do the process....there is no doubt....i guess what im hearing is there a way of getting her here for the time being....if i file for her visa then send her here at least to live with me till everything gets approved.....i believe koreans dont need a visa to visit...thats 90 days....does it negate her application for the K1?....we can wait to get nmarried.....i just dont want her to be alone waiting on my mistake...

You could try and get her into the country on a Visa Waiver (90 days) or have her apply for a B2 visa (tourist, stay upto 6 months) either way is taking a chance though, however if Korea is part of the VWP, which I didnt think it was, and she hasnt visited for a while then you shouldnt have a problem getting here there for a holiday.

However, if she over stays then you will have very big problems with the whole process. Being denied a VWP won't effect your K1 application though.

As for the time, there are hundreds of us out here who are waiting just like you, just like her, its hard we know it (especially being the forgien fiance) but its just part of the process, it makes relationships stronger makes us all hate the US government a little more.

She can probably visit but cannot "immigrate" without the appropriate visa. Join the club. Well, you already have.
