cancelling visa

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hello,

My fiancee and I applied for our K1 back in october 2014 (and still haven't heard anything!)

Unfortunatly due to some family issues I need to stay in my home country for now, its sad to cancel the visa after coming this far, but I just wanted to check that if we do cancel it are we able to apply again say in a year and a half or so? Would that raise our chances of getting denied? Or is there a wait tim in which you can't do a second application.

Also are we better off cancelling the visa properly or can we just let it expire?

Thanks so much!

Well.... My recommendation would be not to cancel it.... after visa is issued you can stay for about six more months in your home country, and if you go to the consulate around the six months and say you need an extension and get them proof of that; they will grant you an extension....

So in my opinion it's better to continue the process

Thanks,

I don't think thats for us though, as well as the family issues, we both want to be absolutely certain this is what we want before getting married.

Right now we're both young (im 22 hes 25) and he still lives with roomates and only new to his job out of college. We want to be more set up finacially and him possibly be able to afford his own appartment etc by the time I get there.

If we cancel it can we apply again though? I'm not sure when that will be. We have trips planned to see each other often,about once every four months for around a month each time so we would still have evidence of an ongoing relationship and meet the requirements of meeting in the past two years.

Do you think that if we apply again it will be okay since it will be a petition for the same fiancee?

I would slow walk your visa in you are sure you want to get married. You are in a long cue and have means to slow it. You can slow walk the interview (have 6 months) and then you can slow walk after on coming to the US and I think you can apply to extend.

If you are not sure about the relationship then cancel it. I think getting the visa issued and not use it will raise red flags in future US visits.

It shouldn't be an issue.

Have petitioner send notarized letter of withdraw to : Service Center, Dept. Of State, and Embassy where the interview would of taken place.

Should have letter of withdraw back from embassy in 30 to 60 days.

Welcome to the forum.

It is difficult to accurately determine where you are in your immigration journey since your timeline is absent. To cancel your visa petition, I would suggest that the petitioner send letters of cancellation (return receipt requested/delivery confirmation) to the USCIS service center listed on your NOA1 (petition receipt) and/or the interviewing embassy/consulate (depending on where you are in the process). Be sure to include any relevant USCIS receipt numbers and/or DOS casefile numbers in your correspondence.

Be sure to save any confirmation or receipt letters received for possible future reference.

Good luck on your immigration journey.


Completed: K1/K2 (271 days) - AOS/EAD/AP (134 days) - ROC (279 days)
