Question on possible scenario please

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Let's say that while the K-1 Visa is in process, my fiance' visits me in the US. Then let's say the appointment for the Consulate interview happens to fall during the time that he is in the US visiting me. What happens?

Does he have to fly home to do the interview in his country? Is it possible to get an interview here at a Consulate in the US? I'm sure this has happened and has been asked before but I've searched the forums and couldn't find the answer. Thanks!

Can't do K1 interviews within the US. That defeats the entire purpose of the visa process.

So yes if your fiance is here he would have to fly back and attend the interview. But even before the interview there are things he has to do. He would have to get the Biometric and medical done beforehand (and yes, those are done in his country also). Also, he has to obtain police certificates from his country. The process has a lot of leg work on both sides.

Can't do ? it's not possible. US will not have a foreign mission on its own land.

Considering that K1 normally make their own interview dates, I highly suggesting doing some planning when booking an interview date and a visit.

Yes your fiance would have to be in their country of residence to interview and do their medical. No they cannot interview or do the medical in the USA.

Yes he needs to return home for the interview. There are no US consulates inside the US.
