Where are you in the process? Have you passed NVC yet? I would be very surprised if your K3 wasn't closed at NVC, it is an obsolete visa.

1. Your wife petitions , then you go for the visa interview. She does not need to be with you.

2. Your wife can send doctors letters and ask for an expedite, but she needs to show why YOU need to be there (as opposed to a friend or family member helping).

3. See 2 - the K3 is no faster than the CR-1 these days, that was years ago that it was faster.

4. You need to pay more for the K3 once you get to the USA, and won't be able to work for several months. It is unlikely you will be able to get a K3 anyways.

Because when the I-130 and the I-129F arrive at NVC at the same time, which they usually do, NVC will administratively close the I-129F/ K3 path and force you onto the CR-1 path. If by fluke it gets through, and you get the K3 visa (chance of 0.01% going by VJ experience), it is a worse visa than the CR-1, because it is no faster and you need to spend more money, time, and paperwork for Adjustment of Status in the USA

have u tried the k3 application from egypt ?

i appreciate ur answer

I applied for the K-1. K-3 is obsolete. There's no K-3 or DCF in Egypt. The only options are CR-1 or IR-1. Read Penguin's answer.


Don't ever do anything you're not willing to explain the paramedics.

Also if your I130 petition is already approved you can't file a K3 it must be filed while the I130 is pending. You siad your I130 is back a uscis, did you already have an interview ?


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

File for the I130 visa you can send in the proof your wife has heart problems but she has to give them a reason she needs you to take care of her and not someone like family friends ..Penguin is correct in what she is telling you .I know it's frustrating and sad being far from your love one's but this is what it takes to get there. wish you the best :thumbs:

thx penguin ,, think u got the experience to say that , it really helped

but does it mean that CR1 visa is the normal way every one goes for after they get i-130 approved ?

yep, everyone goes the CR-1 way.

In terms of expediting, you need to do this at every stage- ie you send the expedite request to USCIS first, then to NVC, then the mebassy. An expedite, even if approved, does NOT carry through to the next stage.
