Petition @ consulate for over 3 months and no news...

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Our packet arrived at the embassy 3 months ago (early November). From what I've read online and what my lawyer told me, this step was supposed to be the fastest! I emailed the embassy about 3 weeks ago and got a simple response saying that they "have hundreds of cases" and I need to just wait for them to contact. 

 

I found another person on this forum that is applying for the same K1 visa at the same embassy. Their packet was received by the embassy 1 month after ours and they have already received their interview date for March! (from what their timeline says).

 

Now I'm confused.

 

When the embassy gets these "packets" are they checked in order they are received? If so, how could someones application get ahead of ours if it arrived 1 month after?

Does anyone know what might be happening to our cases? Possible issues?

 

I think I'm going to wait all of February for a response, if not, I'll have our lawyer send the embassy a formal letter asking what we need to do. I'm not sure if it'll piss them off but this is starting to get very frustrating. 

 

I appreciate any advice!!

We presume they check them in the order they are received. But unless someone who actually works at the Embassy at the "K-1 check-in Department" who would like to chime in here, it's just what we think. 

It's possible that an application filed later than you get interview first. Why? How do anybody know? It's just how they do stuff at the Embassy. Your  case will be reviewed and you will get your interview. That much is for sure. How long does it take or what order the Embassy process things, we don't know.
