Finally my fiance pick up his visa . He scanned his visa and sent me a copy and it expires 2 months from the date issued. I thought the K1 visa was valid for 6 months. He plans to travel before the expiration date but would that cause a problem? I never heard of the visa being valid for 2 months. I am awaitng a emailresponse from the embassy. Just wanted to know if anyone ever experience this?

A few things that can cause short issue times.

  • Having medical done too far in advance of the interview.
  • Having a passport with less than 6 months validity left on it.

Moving this to Consulate/Embassy forum...

Although not the norm, it does happen that the K-1 is not valid for 6 months. Have him travel before the expiration date

Good luck

Thanks for your reply. Do you know what is consider doing medicals too far in advance? He did his medicals in Early Dec for a Jan 25th appointment. I dont think it is a passport issue. His passport is less than a year old.

Could be medical timing, sometimes K-1 is shortened to help avoid later getting an RFE for another medical during AOS later.

Strange, but since he plans on traveling before the shortened date, I wouldn't worry about it.

That does sound strange... but you know the embassy in Ghana seems to be known for doing things "differently". From what some have said here, it sounds like the want to make sure the medical is still good when he gets here for your application to change status. I guess just allowing for more time on it, just in case? Girl I have no idea, and with it being Ghana, you can never really know. As stated before I would just leave as soon as possible and not worry about it. As they say in Ghana "That's Ghana for you!" lol. When is he planning to fly out?

Doing medicals one month before the interview is not too early. My then-fiancee did hers the same way, and the visa was valid for 6 mos to travel.

Thank you! You were absolutely right. Here is the email repsonse from the embassy:

Thank you for your email inquiry.

We wish to inform you that usually applicants are given shorter validity on their visa when their Medical Results expire within the next few months after the visa is issued. This is done to spare the applicants from extra expense (in re-doing medicals) and delaying their process. Mr. Fiance will not have any problem as long as he enters the United States before April 28, 2011.

We hope this information is helpful to you and please let us know if we may be of further assistance.

Sincerely,

U.S. Embassy Accra

Consular Section
