Both the CR1 and K1 visas take almost just as long, especially going through Bogotá. I recommend the CR1 if you can get married first to save money and time since you'd have to file for AOS with a K1 after arrival.

The only two service centers processing these type of visas are Vermont and California. You have to send the petition to the one you have to based on your current address.

Who says there is not a K-3?

Speed of receiving the visa should not be the main consideration. Consider ALL the advantages and disadvantages of all.

K-1 gets the loved one here faster, btu then they cannot travel or work for several months or more. CR-1 takes a little longer but comes with a green card, so immediate travel and work, if those are considerarions.

K-3s (YES still available) allow up to two years traveling before adjusting status...good for a person who has to take some time to close a foreign business, for example, or a family that may intend to live in a foreign country after some time and really do not need a green card at this time. For the average permanent resident seeking couple, the K-3s have nothing to offer really and are frequently called "obsolete" They are not obsolete, just of limited attractiveness.

You don't have a choice of service centers. If you're not married but have already met in person, you can file the I-129F for the K1 process now instead of waiting until you can arrange to marry, so K1 would be faster in that case.

Who says there is not a K-3?

NVC effectively says there will be no K3. Just how do you, Gary, propose a couple secures a K3 under the policies in place today?

I live in North Carolina and would prefer to use this address but I could use an address in New York if needed. So from North Carolina, Texas would be my service center but do they accept CR-1 applications or is it only Vermont and California????

NY and NC both use Vermont. Texas hasn't processed family petitions in years.

My bad, then. I was not aware of the recent decision. At any rate, it has not been a popular choice for several years due to limited benefit as opposed to a CR-1. I will defer to Pushbrk and his more recent info. Thanks.
