K1 visa Cali processing

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!


So I saw that on visa journey says that the current processing times for K1 visas at the California Center are on the 17th of November 2016 and that this information is related to the information that the users update.

If so...is that true? Is California processing those times for 17th November? I saw there's people who got their NOA1 on 8th November and still either didn't get the NOA2 or they just didn't update it. 


Thank you!

That means that at least one user reported getting their NOA2. It does not mean all/most people who have a NOA1 on or before that date are processed. Every petition is looked at individually, and the specific processing times can vary based on all sorts of factors.


It's also possible people just haven't been on this site to update their status, or even know that a NOA2 was issued yet.
