Is it possible to apply for a K-3 visa after the initial paperwork is already submitted? We have been waiting for the interview date for months, and it has been a very long process making me wish that I had submitted the K-3 originally. Does anyone have any thoughts or information on this? Maybe it wouldn't have been worth the effort, but Haiti has had protests and riots and I do not understand why we haven't been contacted before now.

In the K3 forum here, we have discussed for years that the K3 visa is virtually NOT available.  Even a decade ago, it never saved more than a few weeks.  Just consider that the K3 visa only exists as a phantom idea, still on the books but not viable.

 

To answer your question, the proper way to start the K3 process, IS after you have a receipt for filing the I-130.

The K-3 visa just doesn't exist anymore for all intents and purposes.  Anyone who has filed for this visa has had it merged with their original filing. I'm not finding the link right now, but I don't think they even issues 10 last year.  Don't waste your time.

Okay, thanks for the responses. Does anybody know if you can file to get your interview done at another embassy if the country you were supposed to interview in has problems?

Depends on what “problems” you mean. If the embassy is closed or has stopped issuing visas for whatever reason then you will be directed to another embassy.

 

Normally you can only interview at the embassy responsible for the country you live in or the country you are a citizen of (if different from where you live).

Okay, thanks. The Haitian embassy is open again as far as I know.
