Hi everyone. I have doubt with this letter, could you let me know if this is when NVC received or leave (to embassy in Colombia). 

Also I'm wondering if I can do something else during this step. 

The letter was received June 25 2019 how long we should expect for end this k1 process? 

 

And I understand in letter say go to our website to learn and prepare... 

Thanks in advance!

NVC letter is sent out when your case file is shipped to the embassy.

 

Have you checked your CEAC status?  https://ceac.state.gov/CEACStatTracker/Status.aspx?eQs=WwjqOlbeRYzCYubaSQI+RA==

@Hank_ Yes, this is what appear: 

 

 

 

READY status and you haven't started the visa application process?     You should be on the embassy (visa area) website for Columbia

It's kind of confusing @Hank_ because in the CEAC appears:

K Visa Applicants: Please be advised that you must wait for the Packet of Instructions from the Embassy prior to scheduling your appointment. Although your case could appear Ready when you are checking the status in this platform, if you are applying for a K1 (fiancée visa) you need to wait for instructions from the Embassy to continue with the process. As soon as we receive the file from NVC, the Immigrant Visas Unit will send you notification that your case... 

And we try contact embassy but they don't have answer.

Here is the deal with the embassy, some send out packets, and for some everything is online .. process is very different from embassy to embassy.   You should pop over the the Columbia sub-forum for better answers.

Ignore that mumble jumble as your case is read to have the interview. You should email the embassy for their instructions. I have a copy that I will link below.

If you find anything not up to date or the information is wrong, please share your findings. Please compare the date of the P3 of mine with the date from your embassy copy, once you receive yours from your embassy. Keep in mind that I try and be factual with my information, but I can't do it on my own and that's where you come in and can give back to the community that comes behind you. Without others ahead of you I would not be able to provide this to you.  I can only share factual information if folks like you continue to be my eyes and ears for your embassy. I wish you much success in your visa journey.

 

After you get your case number from NVC it would be a good idea if you were to connect with the VJ sub forum for all things dealing with the US Embassy in Colombia and they will answer your questions for the processing of your visa from their personal experience. Link:

Get the US Embassy Colombian K-1 Packet 3 (P3) at  https://drive.google.com/file/d/16Oeg4xYRja1hqUSzF-uEaj1QiyoFnv9X/view?usp=sharing as this is your bible needed to complete and receive your visa. The required documents are included and use the P3 as a check list. Once you have completed or gathered the required documents you'll be ready for your interview. If it is not on the Embassy letter, it probably is not needed.

 

Last but not least, READ the pages on the US Embassy website for your country so that you are up to speed.

One last place to check for information would be the VJ Wiki found here: http://www.visajourney.com/wiki/index.php/Special:AllPages and here http://www.visajourney.com/consulates/index.php?ctry=Colombia&cty=Bogota

 

Ppl doing their vaccinations in Columbia can do them with anyone not connected to the approved medical center where  your exam will take place saving you a lot of money. Be sure to get a receipt that states every single vaccination that you received. See list below that are required vaccinations. Then during your medical present the receipt for the vaccinations to the Doctor and ask that they be transposed to the DS-3025 and marked COMPLETE! Very important that they are marked complete. You will use this document once you are married and filing your AOS package.

 

Good luck and God's speed.

We were in the same boat. And we have the same date - Jun 25th it was mailed from the NVC to Bogota. CEAC has showed a ready status for at least 3 weeks now. They actually called my Fiance in Colombia last week and asked for her email address so that they could email her something (presumably packet 3). But nothing has arrived to date. 

 

After reading this, I feel a lot more confident. We're just going to move forward following the instructions for the DS-160 and scheduling the interview. Thanks for a great post.
