I'm sure this has been answered before, but wanted to ask about an expedited visa for personal family reasons. 

 

Our K1 paperwork has been sitting at the NVC since April 28, 2020 and we are under the impression that our visa in a holding pattern just like all other K1's. The embassy in Belgrade, Serbia has been open since early June and are currently interviewing and approving CR1 visas at this time because they're "mission critical."

 

My father, is currently in a care facility with severe Alzheimer's disease and I'd really love for my fiancee to meet him (even through a window since they're not allowing people inside) before he passes.

 

Also, my grandmother (my mom's mom who helped raise me when my mother passed away when I was 11) is not doing well. She had cancer and a stroke about 5 years ago and had been going downhill ever since. Yesterday, it seems as though she's had another stroke and it doesn't look like she will hold on much longer. 

 

I didn't know if parents or grandparents would be a consideration for an expedited case or not. Thank you in advance for any helpful information.

You can submit the request but I don’t see how it falls under any of the categories. USCIS doesn’t even see your grandparents as immediate relatives (spouse/child/parents) so they are in no way a priority to a fiancé. Like I said you can always make the request just don’t have high hopes. Hope your grandmother can get better.

Past four months I was trying to get an appointment for my fiancé before my grandmother passed with no success. The last thing she wanted was to see me get married. She passed Monday and they won’t even give him a interview to attend the burial. It really hurts because they had such a close relationship but the embassy isn’t big on showing compassion these days
