If I Apply for a K1, will that cancel my Tourist Visa?

Thoughts?

Thought Id also ask some questions I asked in the New Members forum

Just a couple questions:

1. I've been looking at timelines (they're so very helpful!)and I was wondering what "Touched" means?

2. Haven't really looked through a lot of posts, but what's the earliest that I could go to the US under K1? I've been wanting a February wedding. I always fancied myself to be a February bride!

3. What are the odds of me getting denied a Visa, and if I do, what will happen to my tourist visa?

Thank you! :)

Touched means exactly that, your file was handled. It basically means nothing. It could have been counted, moved, filed, etc. Don't get too excited over a 'touch'

The length of your process can depend on the country the beneficiary is from. For example, if you interview in Montreal, it is a very slow consulate and averages 4 months from NVC to an interview.

Good luck

Umit still has a valid B-2 visa in her passport. (she came over on a K-1)


My Advice is usually based on "Worst Case Scenario" and what is written in the rules/laws/instructions. That is the way I roll... -Protect your Status - file before your I-94 expires.

Thanks for the replies! smile.gif

Bobby, that's great to hear!

Also, was wondering if I could travel to the US while my K1 is pending?

If you have a valid visa, and you can conform to the requirements of said visa/visit, yes, you can.
