Is it possible

I have looked and could not find any for sure answer. So I hope someone can answer my question:

Is it possible to do the CFO, Medical and Intrview for a K1 in a 5 day time period with a 2yo K2? I am trying to get my fiancee and her son all planned out so when it is time they can knock it all out in a 5 day trip rather than mulitple visits.

All I can say is that is pushing it, but not impossible..... I for sure will feel for your fiancée if that is the route taken, especially with a 2 y.o.

I see by your timeline you have a few months before deciding this.

There is a link in my signature below to the K-1 process.

Yeah it is really hard and actually impossible.

Medical needs to be done at least 1 week before the interview. That alone needs 5 working days which is your goal.

CFO would want to see the visa in the passport before giving a sticker and that needs another day and your visa usually take at least 4 days to be delivered after the interview.

She can wait it all out in Manila if she wants. She needs about 15 days to do all of it or she has the option of doing 3 trips. First trip would be when she has medical and CFO, second is for interview, and third CFO sticker maybe a day before you leave for the US.

I suggest that she must take her medical exam a week before the interview. After the interview and she got her visa in her passport and you already booked her flight, she can go to Manila a day before her flight. The seminar and counseling will only take 2 hours, but the CFO certificate may take a while depending on how many are doing their transactions for that day.

I think this is the best option for you since you are on fiance visa.

I would recommend that your fiancee have a relative or friend accompany her & her child when they have their medical exam. The guards in SLEC will allow a companion in because she has a child with her.

For CFO, there are limited number of slots for the seminar, that entails getting up early & being there at the crack of dawn. I doubt CFO will allow the child to sit in during the seminar, as we all know they get easily bored or will be too hyper to stay quiet.

I agree with the others, do the medical & CFO in one trip which will be a week before the interview. The 2nd trip will be the interview. Third trip to get the CFO stickers preferably a day before their flight.

This scenario is realistic considering there is a minor child.
