If the K-1 got declined.

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I was curious.

If our K-1 got declined.

Are you allowed to apply again? or will it be on their systems permanently?

Also if you were to be declined. Is there a waiting period?

Like you got declined and you can only send in another form after 5 months.

I'm just a little curious.

if your denied, you can reapply but whats the sense....you can also appeal but the best way to deal with a denial is to work on the issues that lead to the denial in the first place.....if its lack of genuine relationship, you have the opportunity to make a 1 or two more trips to see each other....get more involved with each other families and then you can even get married and file the IR1/CR1 petition which would allow the foreign fiancee to enter and have his/her green card within a few weeks of arrival. :thumbs:

Define "K1 declined"

The petition can be declined for many things and, in most cases, people can re file.

If the K1 visa doesn't get approved, it will depend on the grounds given by the CO. Appeals exist but are not recommended (time + money + no guarantees).

So, yes and no. It all depends.

Are you worried about being disapproved based on any specific information? or are you just opening the umbrella before it rains?

Are you referring to the I-129F petition or the actual K-1 visa at the interview stage?

If the latter, the short answer is it depends. The approval rate for the K-1 visa is pretty high (over 90%), so the couple would have to know why the interviewing officer gave the thumb's down on the visa application.

Well no - My only concern is that according to the USA Embassy in UK states my Passport may be declined if not valid for at least 8 months before being issued.

Think is I didn't realize this until now and I would need to renew my passport as I think it will expire just before I go.

By the time the interview starts - My passport will probably only be 7 months valid. If they were to decline for that - I would obviously appeal but I was just curious if they did decline and I couldn't appeal.

If something as small as that, if I could re-apply or if they was a short waiting period etc.

So your passport expires in 8 months, you're saying?

Ahh ok... you are worrying for nothing and confusing things ... BREATHE

A consular officer can disapprove a K1 visa on many grounds, but usually when there's a missing document or if they want to you get a new passport, they won't disapprove you. They will simply put you on something we refer to as AP (Administrative Processing) and give you time to comply with whatever document they need/want.

So, if they want to you get a new passport, they will let you know and keep you waiting; but doesn't mean they will disapprove you no0pb.gif

If I'm reading your timeline correctly, you just filed the I-129F petition. As was noted in the other thread you started yesterday on passport, you will have plenty of time to renew your passport between now and when your interview will occur. Depending on how quickly the service center adjudicates your case, you're likely looking at 5-6 months until the petition is approved and then you may have another 2-3 months until the case gets to the embassy and your interview occurs.

Oh that's great! Thanks.

Well it's a bit complicated.

You see in order to get my Passport renewed.

I need to get my Identity Card renewed and that process can take a while then I would need to get my passport renewed which could take a while also.

I know it'll be renewed within 1-2 months tops it's just my only concern is when I go to the interview. If my passport has only been valid for at least 6 months and not 8 months like it is required based on this:

"A Passport must be valid for travel to the United States and must have at least eight months validity beyond the issuance date"

I'm not seeing the complication. You'll have to get a new passport, so why not start the process to get things in order now rather than waiting?

It's possible you're misunderstanding the validity clause. What that means is you must have at least 8 months' before the passport's expiration.
