Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Canada

Hi Everyone, :thumbs:

I've seen that quite a bit of people were following my posts since my case, questions and my case ending up in AP (Administrative Process). Today, all I can say that it has been a loooooong, scary and depressing journey in this stage of the K1 visa process. I know that this isn't the end, but it could of just as well be. In any case, 12 weeks to day in the Administrative Process in Montreal.

Also, since my fiancee has been pregnant with our twins and in 32nd week of her pregnancy, last night I decided to ask the CBP for a paroled entry into the United States to assist her. Took few hours of business, till today. Today the CBP called in reference to that only to tell me they would not allow the Paroled entry which if it wasn't so they would try and help to agree to paroled entry terms. Now what did the guy tell me, he told me they can't let me in because my K1 Visa in Montreal has been APPROVED! YES YES YES YES!!! We are both so very excited to expect our passport in the mail... woohhooooo... 12 weeks of waiting, all done for now. Just amazing.

Didn't take CBP's word for it. I called DOS and spoke with this awesome woman, very awesome and nice lady who did confirm that the VISA in fact was APPROVED and welcomed me to the United States, with happy travels. It has been printed on Friday.


Thank you to everyone for giving me confidence on here, for answering my questions, for telling me not to worry. I think my case was a very complicated one too.

All I can say to those that are waiting still in AP status, is... no matter how bad your thoughts are, how depressed you are of the AP status, don't give up, something must come of it if you waited this long for it. Otherwise, how a good friend on here said, if it took this long, it must be good news. Everyone knows, if its too short time, can't be good. So, hold on, be patient... i know, now because I got APPROVED I'm talking like this, but I honest couldn't do anything in my case but be nervous, patient.

Thank you everyone, appreciate and will keep in touch with the further journey in this that I have to go with.

Cheers! :dance:

Passage Revelation 19:11:

11And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
