After NOA2

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Your application will have to go to NVC then to the Ecuadorian embassy. Then depending on how booked up the embassy is for visa interviews it could take several weeks. Don't plan on booking tickets until she gets her approval.

From my NOA2 to her visa approval was 3 weeks. It was very fast.

After the NOA2, it's different for everyone. It depends on how busy your consulate is.

Do not make any travel arrangements until your fiance has her visa in hand.

Later she should receive an email or letter informing her that they sent your case to the US embassy in her country. Then she should be contacted by that embassy requesting her to gather some documents, proof (again), medical, etc etc. When she sends back to that embassy all this information, then they will schedule the interview and if everything goes well ... She will be approved. All this process can take 1 or 2 months.

It was like that in my case, in Argentina they keep your passport and they issue the k1 visa and then they send it to you by mail (that took me 2 more weeks waiting.Do not buy any ticket until you know she was approved!!! She did not even have an interview yet so you really dont know how long this could take.

All the good luck your you guys! :thumbs:

Amigo,

Read this thread in its entirety:

http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/110313-us-consulate-in-guayaquil-ecuador/

The only ticket that you should think about buying is the one that gets YOU into Guayaquil at least a day before her visa interview, whenever that will be.

If you're not there at the interview, she may not stand a prayer of being granted a visa.

Meanwhile, collect copious evidence of your bona fide relationship, and hope that it will be accepted when you BOTH appear at the consulate.
