Venezuela Question

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good morning everyone! I am in the airport in Miami returning to Michigan from an amazing week in Curacao with my Venezuelan fiancee Yessi. This is our third meeting in a year (two other times in the Dominican) and it was for our one year anniversary! 😍   However, I would like to get some response to this question. Does the worsening situation in Venezuela have an affect on Yessi's ability to have her visa process continue forward without interruption? I received the NOA1 on April 25 and, according to the timeline, we should be getting processed around the end of October-beginning of November. I am just looking for some wisdom and opinions based on experience so we can know what to somewhat expect or not expect. Our hope and prayer is that she and her son could be in Michigan with me by February or so. I understand there are no guarantees but,  as the situation grows more dire in Venezuela, I get a little more anxious about the timeline. I wish I knew how to post pictures on here so you all could see our trips.  Any opinions or insights are welcome. Thanks and have a great day.

Unfortunately, no one can predict what will happen in the future.  Currently Venezuela is not one of countries affected by the the latest travel ban, with the exception of certain specified Venezuelan government officials.  Presumably your fiancee is not one of them.

 

All you can do is hope that her visa will be approved and she will be able to get to the U.S. before (and if) any possible changes might affect visas being issued from Venezuela.

 

Good luck in your journey!

Good Luck!

The situation in Venezuela shouldn't affect the visa process, the embassy in Caracas is not going to stop working. It didn't stop last year when things were bad with the protests and everything so i'm sure it won't stop this year regardless of how bad things are at the moment. 

 

Venezuela is super unpredictable and there's no way we can tell you what's going to happen. But my guess is that things are not going to be super bad that it's going to affect any of your immigration plans.

Hello everyone. My interview was last Monday (October, 1). Today is Friday and my passport is still with the US embassy. I live in Maracaibo, Venezuela. How many time took the embassy to send you back your Passport with your visa?

Hi! For me it took 4 days, but I live in Maracay wich is super close to Caracas. For you it might take longer but you should probably have it by next week.
