Hi all

I was wondering if anyone out there has gone thru the K-1 Visa process and if so, assuming all your paperwork was in order, how long did it take you to get the Visa from application to receipt (VISA) date

thanks in advance.

Short answer: It varies.

If you want to get a good idea of an estimate that is applicable to your situation, you should click on the "Immigration Timelines" link at the top of each page and then search by I-129F/K-1 and the country.


Part One: The K-1 Visa Journey:

USCIS Receipt of I-129F: January 24, 2012 | Petition Approval: June 15, 2012 (No RFEs)
Interview: October 24, 2012 - Review | Visa Delivered: October 31, 2012



Part Two: Entry and Adjusting Status:

POE: November 18, 2012 (at SFO) - Review
Wedding: December 1, 2012 | Social Security: New cards received on December 7, 2012.
AOS Package (I-485/I-765/I-131) NOA1: February 19, 2013 | Biometrics Appt.: March 18, 2013
AP/EAD Approved: April 29, 2013 | Card Received: May 6, 2013 | AOS Interview Appt.: May 16, 2013 - Approved Review Card Received: May 24, 2013

Part Three: Removal of Conditions:

Coming Soon...

It really depends on many factors. It depends how quickly the service center your petition is sent to is processing, depends how simple or difficult your particular case is, depends on the country of the beneficiary, and probably other variables I can't think of. You will get a better idea by researching the country and how long it typically takes after they receive an approved petition. For the most part for either service center you can expect a wait of at least 5 months.

In my case, I mailed the petition on July 3rd, and my fiancee picked up her visa on November 20. At the time CSC was moving very fast, and I had a simple case with no RFEs. Colombia allows you to make the interview date yourself after you pay the visa fee. A lot of times the wait isn't long. After the interview it only takes a few days after to pick up the visa.
