Kenya K1 visa- how long after interview will the visa be sent to DHL

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance interview date if Feb 27th. Some people have said they received their visa at DHL as soon as a few days later but when I just called they said it could take weeks even months!! I want to book our flights, mine to go meet him and puck him up and his to come home, but am worried about timing. How long does it usually take? Does anyone have any experience with this in kenya specifically? My fiance is Ugandan but is being processed in Kenya. Please help :( thanks!

This can vary. Most would say expect 1-2 weeks after the interview. Depends on how fast they process the visa after the interview... how long would his AP be if any.. and does the interview even go well and get an approval...


Sound advice is only schedule your flight to go to the interview with him... but as to a ticket for him.. wait until visa is in hand or you may just end up losing a lot of money.

What Ben&Zian said. Do not book any U.S.-bound flights before you have the visa in hand. You may also want to look around in the country-specific subforums; maybe you find someone who was processed in Kenya as well and could give you more details. Good luck with everything :)
