What dates are on the visa

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just out of interest.

When , if, I am granted IR1 visa, what are the dates on it for date visa issued and expiry date.

 

Is the date visa issued,  the date of the interview at the Embassy or a date its physically placed in the passport.

 

And is the expiry date 6 months from the medical date ? Or 6 months from visa issuance.

 

Just wondered.

Just wondered.

your visa when issued is good 6 months from the date of the medical only

 

so if your medical was in Jan 15 the visa would be good only till July 15

My wife's CR-1 visa has the issued date (10 May 2017) and the expiration date (the only date of real importance).  Her visa's expiration date (10 Sep 2017) is exactly 4 months later than the issued date.   Her medical was about 2 weeks prior to the issued date.  I don't know why her expiration date was so soon.

Thanks all. So I assume 10th may 2017 was the date of her visa interview when it was agreed.?

My wife's interview was on 8 May.  She received a 221g for a divorce certificate which she supplied the same day.  Her visa status changed to "issued" on 10 May (the date shown on her visa as the issued date).  Her medical exam was done on 24 April.

Expect six months from the medical and if it's different than that, deal with it by entering the US before the expiration date.

Yep I know that. That wasn't the question. It was just an out of interest question.

I understood the question.  You won't know the answer for certain until the visa is in hand.  The best you can do is have a reasonable expectation, then adjust as needed.
