K-1 statistics

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We all agree that the system is bogged down and non efficient. You can easily access data online regarding all non immigrant visas issued yearly. Total non immigrant visas issued yearly is a very large number. And in fact , there are large numbers of just K-1 of which I am a petitioner. When I look at the overall numbers, and take into consideration that the service centers are directly funded by the fees which applicants pay, I can see why there is such a back log of cases. I do not have knowledge as to how many people work at each of the service centers, nor do I have knowledge of the entire scope of petitions they complete at each site. I do know that Texas seems to process a much larger scope and number of overall petitions yearly according to Visa Journey data. Therefore, perhaps with the revenue generated from applications, they could or should employ more staff to complete applications in a more timely and efficient manner. Just take a look at some of the overall numbers !!!!

In 2014 there were 35,925 K-1 issued See this link, does not include total applicants, only those issued.


In 2013 there were 26,321 k-1 issued See this link, does not include total applicants, only those issued.


In 2012 there were 27,684 K-1 issued. See this link, does not include total applicants, only those issued.

NIV visas are processed by DoS, solely, with no USCIS involvement, all done at the Consular Level at the NIV Unit in each embassy,


I am uncertain why you would glom together NIV and USCIS in the same breath.

anyone filing from 9/01/2012 forward got bogged down with the DACA applications sent into USCIS.

for now, this cycle, it's not a numbers game - it's a 'the new software keeps blowing up' debacle, which adds wait times to each queue.

Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

Those are statistics for the K-1 visas being issued(Dept. of State). You are talking about processing of the petitions(USCIS). Two different things. Here are the statistics for the petitions from the USCIS > http://www.uscis.gov/tools/reports-studies/immigration-forms-data/data-set-all-uscis-application-and-petition-form-types

~ Moved from K-1 Process to K-1 Progress Reports -topic is about progress statistics ~
