I just received NOA2 last month. My fiancee wants to finish school June 2011. Is it wise to postpone the interview date or extend the visa? I am not sure if the 6 months will be enough time. Has anyone tried to extend the K1 visa or postpone interview date? We are still waiting for the interview date to be given.

What kind of school your wife is following? Highschool? University ? Master degree? Ph.D. degree?

And what major she is now? Not all the education certificates are valid in US.

If you want to delay an interview, it is very easy. You only need to send a letter to Consulate say the reason your want to delay and how long you want to delay. Usually, they allow to delay 3 months.

You can buy some extra time, by taking your time responding to the PKT3... if you dont respond to pkt 3 until Nov, you may be fine... the visa should be good for 6 months, but may be shorter than 6 months sometimes... dont wait too long, as the petition is only supposed to be valid for 4 months... it should take a couple of months to have the interview after you respond to PKT3... so you could have an interview in Jan or even Feb if you respond to PKT3 in Nov.

Remember that the medical is only good for 6 months...

NOA2 > NVC = 4-6 weeks.

NVC > VN Consulate > Interview = 10-12 weeks. Setup your interview date to the end.

Visa extend to 6 months. You should have 8-9 months before she is here.

Good luck.

Extend the visa, if necessary. Make that decision when it becomes an option.

No point in delaying the interview because the process might take longer than

expected.

It's an odd reason for wanting to delay. Because most Vietnamese people know how to

get around that problem the easy efficient way, especially for education that might not

be worth anything in the USA...
