Hello.... :devil:

I am a new member here, and honestly i feel so lost :whistle: . I have never done this before so please forgive me if i make some mistakes :bonk: . I need help :help: with the application for the K-1 visa. Two weeks ago, (L) i finally met with my bf and after all being said and done we decided to get engaged :dance: . He lives in the United States and works for the US Army, i on the other hand, live in Macedonia. We are about to start the process on the K-1 visa but we get lost in all the paperwork that needs to be done. I would be grateful if you can give us some advice and information on how to get things started.

Thank you :thumbs:

Good Luck! I started with researching the paperwork through the US immigration website. I found VJ after I filed but my petition was approved with no problems. Read the instructions carefully and as mentioned read the guides here. It is pretty straight forward just filling out the forms and gathering the proper evidence can be annoying. Congrats!!
