Filed: K-1 Visa Country: United Kingdom
Timeline

Received our nao1 last week. My fiance is visiting in December during Christmas. Is this going to be okay? I have read before that you just have to prove that you will be going back, but how do you do that?

Also... We want to save up as much money as possible. I know the visit wasn't necessary, but we both feel it was for our relationship. Can we prolong the k1 visa at all? Obviously if we get an rfe it will take longer, but can you prolong scheduling the medical and interview a few months?

Thanks

Once you started the process, definitely have ties back home such as mortgage paperwork, job letter/pay stubs, proof that you need to do some sort of errand when you get home, etc.. It's ultimately up to the POE officer to admit you to the U.S.

You can delay it pretty much as long as the NOA2 (when received) will let you, but it's probably wise not to do that and to be hasty with the rest of your paperwork. Once you've got the K-1 Visa (I'm assuming that's what it is, since your timeline says K-1, although your profile says E-1), you have up to 6 months from the date it's issued to enter the U.S. to get married.

Until you get the NOA2, there's really not a whole lot you can do but wait anyways. It took us about 3 months or so for that to happen.

The petition can be extended, so you can delay interviewing. London has specific requirements/instructions about doing this >

I am applying for a K-1 visa, I have heard that I need a letter from my fiancé(e) to reaffirm the petition, what is this?

If the visa interview is scheduled more than 4 months from the date the petition is approved, the applicant is required to provide an original letter from the petitioner, confirming that they both remain legally free to marry and that they intend to do so within 90 days of the applicant’s entry to the United States. There is no requirement that the letter be notarized.

Once the visa is issued, you will have up to 6 more months to enter the US before the visa expires.
