Approved k1 expired, but interview already scheduled

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I hope someone can help me.

 

I've got a letter from the embassy in Frankfurt Germany, today. That my approved k1 visa petition is approved, but is expired since 4 months are over.

 

The embassy required a signed original statement why we haven't pursued earlier. 

My fiance wrote a letter to them and jusr shipped it per overnight express to Germany.  But I guess it will take about a week from today for them to get the letter, which should arrive before my interview appointment.

 

Now my final question:

My interview is scheduled for the 28.May this month,  do you think I still can attend without problems or being denied? Will they let me know when they got the letter? 

 

I can't call the embassy today because it's Sunday, but I will on Monday

 

Thanks for your help!

Your kinda all over the place on this one. You are doing a K1, it seems you got the NOA2 approval notice, you should have got a case number from NVC and have filled out the DS160 and schedule your medical exam and paid fees. All this needs done before the interview. Since your petition seems to be at the embassy as you have an interview scheduled, they have the ability to extend the petition until they can get you interviewed. Sounds like you have dropped the ball on a few things. You should have Visa fees paid, and a medical done by now as you are within 2 weeks of the interview. Fill out your timeline if you can, or take a look at the K1 guide here on VJ, and figure out where you are in the process and then everyone here should be able to help you out with more information.

As long as the delay was beyond your/your fiancé's control, the CO will extend the validity of the petition during the interview. The CO will decide that based on your fiance’s explanation on that letter.

Then do you know how/why your application expired?

 

If you did everything correctly, then it must them. You wouldn't be able to make an appointment without being on time and everything ready I suppose. But in this case why would they ask your fiance to explain why you didn't pursue earlier?
