Enough Face to Face time?

Timeline

My fiance and I are preparing for our anticipated interview date. We are guessing June, since we still haven't gotten our NOA2. I have visited her in Costa Rica many times before, but never for a very long period. I believe my longest visit was about 12 days. My fiance and I have seen each other during 5 separate visits, during which we spent all of our available time together. Should my fiance and I be concerned that this isn't enough time, and will this be a problem as we try to get the visa?

I think as long as you have proof of an ongoing relationship it will be ok. There are a lot of cases approved with less time. Of course, I am not an expert, but I think it is more than enough.

This is good to know. I understand you aren't 100% confident in your answer, but if it sounds like more than enough to you, at the minimum I would think it won't be a red flag to the CO.

For a K1 visa which I assume you filed for because you called your SO a fiance you are required to met in person at least once. ( your profile does not show what you filed for) Each country is different with consulates...did you read your fellow Costa Ricans reviews on their timelines?

This should give you an good indication of what is enough...face to face as you put it.

Having VJ resources should help you get your answer. find their consulate reviews. Good luck. I hope it helps.

There is no set number of days. You just need to prove that you have a bona fide relationship. Five separate visits is a good indication of that, especially if it is a costly, long trip (less so if its a cheap, 3 hour flight). Organize representative samples of your communications which cover the length of your relationship. Have pictures from each visit readily available. If you have all this and no other red flags, I don't see how you would have a problem.

I don't have pictures from Every visit. However, I do have pictures from some of them. I also plan to be in Costa Rica at the time of the interview.

Regarding my timeline, I took a look and my timeline data seems to indicate the K1 when I go in to edit it. Not sure why it doesn't show that on my posts right now. I guess I'll have to look into that.
