K1 Visa interview confusion

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, my fiance (the petitioner) got a letter a week ago for me, that came from the US Consul in Mexico, it says my Visa is now ready for processing to bring that letter to the interview and it has instructions on where to fill out the DS-160 form then another website that I have to go, to schedule and ASC Appointment and a Consular interview, so I went to the website but in one of the spaces it says to put my DS-260 number, I don't have that, so I have plenty of questions:

1.-Am I suppose to receive another package in the mail with more info?, Do I have to wait to schedule the appointment?

2.-When do I go pay the 265 dollar fee they told me for the Visa Application?

3.-Do they charge per Affidavit form? I am putting 2 (two different people) if they do charge, how much is it and when do I pay for it?

The closer we get the more confusing things get, and I am super stressing, please any help you can get me will be much appreciated, we are so close yet so far!

PS. I already filled out the DS-160 form

The above post is incorrect. You do not fill out the DS-260. K-1 applicants only fill out the DS-160.

There is no actual packet. Juarez just sends a letter. The letter you receive points you to the sites where the instructions, forms and place to schedule your appointment and interview is. The letter is the only 'packet' you will receive. The letter will be needed by the K-1 applicant at their ASC, medical and interview in Juarez, along with the confirmation page from the DS-160.

Here are the K-1 instructions from the Juarez consulate site: http://ciudadjuarez.usconsulate.gov/instructionsk1k4.html ,

The K-1 'packet' instructions (very important to follow and they explain a lot): http://travel.state.gov/content/dam/visas/K1/CDJ%20-%20Ciudad%20Juarez.pdf,

Create account and pay, schedule interview and ASC: https://ais.usvisa-info.com/en-mx/iv/information/k_visa, and

CDJ info here on VJ: http://www.visajourney.com/consulates/index.php?ctry=Mexico&cty=Juarez

You take the I-134 and supporting documents to the interview with everything else. There is no fee for the form > http://www.uscis.gov/i-134
