Processing time? K1 visa -Peru

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I would like to know the processing time in general from when you sent your  petition to UCSIS and when you got  the interview in Peru embassy.


I'm planning that my  fiance send the documents  at the end of september and I would like to  have my interview in december 2019.


Also, do the embassy allow you to choose the date for your interview? or they assign you a date for it?

You can search the timelines on this website to get an idea. There is no way you will have your interview in December if the petitioner is going to file at the end of September.

File as soon as you've met the legal requirements for the form, are comfortable with filing, and you and your fiance(e) have sufficient evidence for your embassy/consulate. Don't make any assumptions on the timelines after that; processing times on the USCIS side can increase or decrease by large amounts in a relatively short time (but probably won't get much lower than the 3 months-ish they are on average now).


Note that according to what users report here, on average it's ~4 months from approved petition to interview, so even if USCIS took no time at all to approve your petition (instead of ~3 months), you wouldn't make December from a September filing, even ignoring holidays.

For me, it took 22 weeks from my NOA1 date to my interview date.  I had no RFE's and I feel like I caught a few lucky breaks with regard to the time.  There were only 2 Federal holidays during that time period (Memorial Day and July 4th). 


My NOA1 to NOA2 was about three months.


Speaking from experience in dealing with Government offices and being related to several Federal employees:


From the end of September to the end of December, there are 4 Federal Holidays (Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas).


A lot of people take off the day after Thanksgiving, and the day before Thanksgiving isn't known to be the most productive work day.  :blink:


Christmas falls in the middle of the week, and a lot of people take off work either before or after Christmas day.  The same for New Year's day.  In January, there's MLK day, and then President's day in February.


I say all of that to say this:  File when you both are ready, but don't expect things to move lightning fast after Mid-November.  I would anticipate a late February or early March interview if you file at the end of September.
