k1 visa approved this morning!

19 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who has assisted us on this site- we could never have done this without you. Nick's visa was approved this morning in London, even with his two small crimes on his record. We were extremely nervous but it was a very smooth process. He will write up a review in a bit but just wanted to let anyone know that has a similar situation that they can feel free to message about what was talked about and questioned. Thanks again to all!

I believe London is currently very quickly processing packet 3's and everyone I have seen has gotten interview dates around the same timeline as I did. I think it depends on the consulate. Good luck with a speedy date, soon!!

I was looking at your timeline nice how did you get your NOA2 so quickly?

We actually didn't get it fast at all, it took us almost the entire alloted 5 months! We were hoping for sooner the whole time! But it all comes together and is totally worth it in the end :)

Thanks everyone!
