I-129f Consular Processing Information for Cuba fiance

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am SUPER new to this, so sorry if I seem...well...like a newbie. I am working on the I-129f form. My fiance lives in Cuba, and I know that interviews are now required to be held in Georgetown, Guyana, therefore I am assuming that I would need to specify that in the Consular Processing Information section of the form. Can anyone validate me on this? I just want to make sure that I do not make any mistakes. 

 

Also, I am very confused on how he is supposed to apply for a visa in Guyana. Do I apply on his behalf? Or does he have to travel to Guyana, apply in person, and then return for an interview if they grant him one? Any clarification on this process would be really helpful. There is so much information and it is overwhelming as I am sure you all know and have experienced.

 

Best,

CA

Once his I129F is approved through USCIS it will be sent to the NVC. The NVC will then send it to his embassy. 

Yes. Cuban K1 visa applicants are interviewed in Guyana. Once his petition reaches his embassy he will be contacted within one to 8 weeks and told to proceed with applying for the Visa. He will fill out a DS160 and submit it to his embassy and will be required to travel to Guyana for the medical exam and interview. Generally at his embassy they tell Visa applicants to plan on being in Guyana for at least two weeks for the Visa application process.

Thank you so much for taking the time to reply. I guess I am confused about how he goes about applying for the visa once he is instructed to do so. Does he apply for the visa in Guyana or in Cuba? Again, I am sorry for being so uninformed.

He will be sent instructions on how to process his Visa application directly from his embassy either by mail or email. They will tell him when to fill out the DS160 online and when to submit that. The DS160 IS the Visa application. Then he will schedule his interview by registering online when told to by the embassy. He will be applying for everything ONLINE to physically take place in Guyana.

 All of your other posts indicate you are getting married in Cuba, so you would apply for a spousal visa not a fiancé visa. The form for that is I-130. And yes, your fiancé (by then spouse) has to go to Guyana for the interview.
