Assistance in K-1 Timeline

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


Me and my fiancee are in the process of acquiring a K-1 visa for me since October 2014. I have attended an interview in the US consulate in Jerusalem on July 8th, and was informed all my documents were in order save for a police certificate that the consulate has yet to receive. After much pain and effort it seems that the consulate has received my certificate (though for some reason they still have problems locating it).

We have planned a wedding on August 13th, and all my family and friends already booked their tickets and hotels so it can't be moved.

My question is as follows:

Assuming the consulate will find my police certificate over the next few days - how long do you think it will take them to process my application? additionally - they want to send my passport back to me via a courier service but it seems to be a very long procedure - do any of you know how to pick up the passport straight from the consulate?

I'll emphasis that if you think the process will take longer than two weeks I can withdraw my passport and use my tourist visa to enter the US, attend the ceremony (though not get married) and return here to finish the application.

The consulate is being very unresponsive and difficult and I'll greatly appreciate any light you can shed on the subject.

Thank you.
