PLEASE HELP! very confusing K1 visa issue

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So, my story goes like this:

I applied for my fiance for a k1 visa. Everything was going fine. we filled the DS 160 online and got the confirmation page. Then we were advised to log in to the jerusalem consulate website to pay the MRV fee of $265 and select the courier and scedule the interview. I did so, and i recieved a confirmation email for the everythingg including the payment i made.

My fiance was interviewed today and he was told that he is approved but needs to send them a paper that he didnt have with him at the interview. He was advised to send it with WASSEL the courier we selected. He went to them today after the interview with that paper, but they were not able to locate that he is registered.

The thing is, When i went to the website to register for the interview and pay the MRV fees, i went to the nonimmigrant website but i was not able to select the k1 visa type from the drop down window. So i went to the immigrant visa website and i registered using the same email i used at the Non immigrant website. from there i paid fees, and scheduled his interview.

When he went today for the interview, they were not able to his name in the list at first, then they looked at the emails we got as a confirmation and they made him go for the interview.

I also spoke to someone on the phone, they told me i cant use the same email for the immigrant and nonimmigrant websites. It has to be two different emails. But for some reason, when i registered using the same email it went through fine!

now when i try to log back in at the immigrant visa website, it takes me automatically to the nonimmigrant visa website to continue what i first started ( Where the k1 visa is not an option to select from the drop down window).

Also Surprisingly, My credit card was never charged the 265$ for some reason!

Also the courier is not able to see that he registered with them online!

This is confusing I dont know how all this happened. Im not sure what to do.

I tried to make a new account on the immigrant visa website using a new email address and pay the fee again, but it then asks me to schedule an interview date. BUt he was already interviewed today !

Did anybody ever experience such an issue??

what should I do??
