There is no waiting time.  You can file immediately if you want.........

It is not about who goes where, it is about the couple spending time together.

Two requirements for filing the I-129f

 

1) having met in person within 2 years of filing the petition.

2) both are free to marry at the time of filing the petition.

 

 

no waiting X amount of time before filing.  No multiple visits, nor does USCIS recommend multiple visits anywhere on their website.

 

 ~ Get 'er done!

Just to add, also make sure that you get a good idea about the full scope of the K1 visa process (so after a K1 visa is issued).

 

After you get married, you will go through the adjustment of status process (and have to cough up the filing fee for that) and eventually the removal of conditions of your conditional green card after that. 

 

The K1 visa itself is just the means to enter the US. Having a good idea about the next steps will help you to plan both financially and emotionally so you can avoid any surprises in the future.

 

Good luck on your immigration journey!
