We're APPROVED for K-1 Visa. Yeeeeaaaaaahhhh

Recommended Posts

Well on Wednesday November 23, 2011, My Fiance was approved for the K-1 Fiance Visa. Thanks to God. She said that the interview was quick and easy. She arrived at the Embassy at 5:30am and left by 10am. They asked her basic questions like, Name of Petitioner, How and when did you meet, when did your fiance visit you last, what is his job, and why are you getting married? And that was it. She brought all types of relationship evidence and all they looked at was a couple of pictures. But it is advised to always bring as much evidence as you can just in case. Also I think that they look at your case in advance and that the Pre-screener makes the decision and the Consulate Officer just confirms or double checks it. Right when my Fiance went to the CO's window for the main interview the Pink Approval Slip was already stapled to her file. Make sure you do good on the first interviewer and of course then the CO. I originally sent in a perfect petition with all of the required things and relationship evidence, plus a little extra. No RFE's. But I tried to only add strong evidence with secondary evidence to back up the main evidence. We are both so happy that we have finally made it through the most important part of getting the K-1 Visa Approved. Next important steps are to book the flight once she has the visa in hand, get married within 90 days of her arrival to the US and the Adjustment of status I-485.

My advice to those who are still waiting is try to be patient, don't obsess by checking online every day/week for NOA2 approval, Reasearch, reasearch and then when you think you've done enough research then do a little more and make sure that you quadruple check everything before you send in the original petition. Then sit back and wait. And if you don't have a job, well go out and get one so you don't sit at home all day impatiently waiting for the NOA2. Staying busy will make the time fly by.

I want to wish those who are waiting and those who are completed the best and that you are able to be with your Significant Other's together forever so that all of your dreams will come true. Stay strong because that's all you can really do. Thanks and Take Care.
