I need help. My fiance is a Syrian Citizen who was living in Lebanon. we applied for the K1 visa in 2017, we had the interview in 2018 and were put on  a lengthy administrative processing more than 15 months . During that time, my Fiance had to move to Montreal, Canada as a refugee  after she lost her residency in Lebanon and was unable to return to Syria which is worse than Lebanon . All of the sudden, the US embassy in Beirut called her to renew her expired finger prints, DS 160 and come for another interview. The political situation in Lebanon was getting worse everyday, the roads were blocked and there is lots of tension against Syrians  and she was not allowed as a refugee in Canada  to travel to a country in which she does not have a residency. We decided to transfer the case to the U.S Montreal, Canada. The U.S embassy in Montreal agreed to transfer the case, we have been waiting for 3 months for the transfer. The U.S embassy in Montreal is saying that we have to wait to the visa transfer which could take months. The U.S embassy in Beirut is not responding to any emails and there is no way to call them. Last week, I checked the status of our case online and the status says ( EXPIRED). We are now devastated, we do not know what to do. Any suggestion or help is much appreciated. 

thanks

Did you do a change of address when she moved. If so call and discuss this. If not talk to attorney.

My money is on @Paul & Mary's answer. Montreal is the one to help. I afraid that you will continue to have road blocks placed in front of your path to your visa. You have two choices, take the whoa is me attitude or buckle down and stay on top of this. 

 

Wait till the current pandemic is under control and thing are beginning to normalize then I would contact someone in you congressional district to help you.

 

Your U.S. representative's contact information can be found in this handy directory, and your U.S. senator's information is in this one.

 

Read this article to get some background information.
