Hi.

I hope you guys can help me.

I'm a US Citizen and my fiance is Filipino. Our marriage will take place in the Philippines. We might go for K-3 or CR-1.

My question is, can the interview be held in Kuwait US Embassy or does he need to go back to Manila US Embassy?

Please advise.

Many thanks!

This is per the U.S. Dept of State website:

How will the Department of State process my K-3 visa petition?

Important Notice: Effective February 1st, 2010, when both the I-129F petition for a nonimmigrant K visa and the I-130 petition for an IR-1 (or CR-1) spouse of a U.S. citizen visa have been approved by USCIS and sent to the National Visa Center (NVC), the availability as well as the need for a nonimmigrant K-3 visa ends. If the NVC receives both petitions:

The nonimmigrant K visa will be administratively closed.

The application process explained below will not be applicable and cannot be used.

The NVC will contact the petitioner and you with instructions for processing your IR-1 (or CR-1) immigrant visa. For more information on the immigrant visa process review the Immigrant Visa for a Spouse webpage.

If the NVC does not receive your I-130 petition and I-129F at the same time, the NVC will process your I-129F petition. Then NVC will send the petition to the embassy or consulate in the country where the marriage took place. If your marriage took place in the U.S., the NVC will send the petition to the embassy or consulate that issues visas in your country of nationality. If your marriage took place in a country that does not have an American embassy, or the embassy does not issue visas, the NVC will send your petition to the embassy or consulate that normally processes visas for citizens of that country. For example, if your marriage took place in Iran where the U.S. does not have an embassy your petition would be sent to Turkey.

Hope it helps!

Well if he is a "legal resident" in Kuwait, that is, either he holds permanent resident status in Kuwait, or a student permit, or worker's permit, then he does not need to go back to Philippines for his interview.

Also, I would suggest you to go for CR-1 rather than a K-3 as they are kind of obsolete now.

Thanks all for your response. Yes, he has a worker's permit in Kuwait. Thanks. We both decided that we'll go for CR-1.
