Hi Friends,

I was wondering if anyone has some suggestion or been through the same situation

My girlfriend is American citizen and I'm Australian, Ive visited her twice in US on Visa Waiver program and she has been to Australia once for a visit.

She has filed for K1 petition and it got approved in Jan 2012, due to unforeseen reason so far haven't been able to gather all the required documents I have recently filled and sent DS-230 but now seems like I dont have much time for medical checkup and Police records (fingerprint check)

I was wondering where do we stand according to this statement "Please note that you must be interviewed and have your visa issued within the four-month validity of your petition"

You need to ask for an extension at the USCIS/consulate.

Welcome to the forum.

Please review the DOS K-1 visa FAQs for more information.

:time:

Good luck on your visa journey.

Thanks for the quick response? just wondering have you been in this situation or you know anyone who has been through this before?

Much appreciated.

The same question has been asked before, it is a Frequently Asked Question on the Dept. of State's Nonimmigrant Visa web page. I believe that I read of a similar inquiry perhaps as recent as last week (?).... :blush:

Review recent threads, or use the site's custom Google search function for more info.

Good luck.

I know someone who did. You need to contact your consulate.

As posted on A&B link:

"My Petition Expired – Can It Be Extended?

The I-129F petition is valid for four months from the date of approval by USCIS. A Consular Officer can extend the validity of the petition if it expires before visa processing is completed."

Well, I agree with didopage. Maybe. You have no timeline so its hard to understand somewhat. Is your Petition already in That Country? Meaning NOA2 approved and sent to that Countries Cousilute Office.? (Case #)

If you can answer that question I can tell you how to delay the petition for up to a year.

This is true and some automatically extended but no guarantees. You have to contact them and that HELPS maintain the record and not an expiration.

If in fact the NOA2 was approved and tranfered, the Visa fee can be paid and is good for 1 year and automatically extends the Petition. (At least for the Philippines) This is what I did
