Hi Its me again. My fiancee already sent our K1 visa application today.What we will do next? What are the things or paperworks i have to get ready? Thank you so much.



Hi Merejen,

Your fiancee will receive NOA1, hopefully in a few days. All you can do for now is wait till you get NOA2 (approval notice) and in the meantime you can start collecting proofs of ongoing relationship (phone bills, emails, plane tickets, boarding passes, photos), as you will need them at your interview. Good luck! :thumbs:

Fill in your timeline!

1) Your fiancee did not send your K-1 visa application. What he sent was the I-129F petition which, if approved, allows you the beneficiary to apply for a non-immigrant K-1 finacee visa.

What you can expect next is to wait. Your fiance will receive a NOA1 (form I-767C) from the USCIS. Don't get to excited when this is received, its just a notice that they gave received the petition.

You can then expect to wait around 3 months (more or less nobody can know) for the NOA2 (another I-767C). Once this is received you can get a little excited. The NOA2 is a notce of approval for the petition.

The USCIS will then forward the petition to the NVC (National Visa Center) where a background check will be done. The NVC will then forward the approved petition to the consulate specified in the application. This can take days or weeks (again - nobody knows).

Once the consulte receives the approved petition they will send "Packet 3" to the beneficiary. Packet 3 will include instruction on what you (the beneficiary) need to do. It will consist of completing some forms and returning them to the consulate. (This part varies from consulate to consulate - for us it was just DS-230 Part 1 and DS-2001).

There will also be a list of things to start gathering that are required for the interview.

Packet 4 will be sent after some more waiting. This packet will contain the interview appointment letter and additional instructions on getting your medical exam and what documents to bring to the interview such as police reports, justice record, proof of relationship, form I-134 (that will need to be completed and sent by the petitioner), birth certificates from both, etc.....

This is a typical scenario from our case, it is not exactly the same everywhere.

If you receive any RFE's during the process they will need to be addressed accordingly and will impact the timing of you case.

Read all the guides and complete your timeline so others know what, where, when about your case.

Hope that gives you a basic understanding of the process.
