221G Delay due to COVID

Hello,

We had our interview in HCMC for K1 in August 2019 and received the 221G - request for evidence. They gave one year to schedule another interview, which is about to expire. We haven't been able to schedule because of the COVID situation. Can the dead line be extended? Thanks.

Please do completed your VJ timeline. Click your user name and then add/edit timeline. I want to point out You took a year to respond to the RfE and Covid has only stopped things since March so please don’t use that as an excuse. You need to reach out to the embassy to see if they will extend it but sounds like bad planning on your part. You made your journey extra long.

You definitely need to contact the embassy . .  . months ago!  Only they can give you the answer you need because Covid has altered their normal rules.  Your fiance will probably need a new medical exam and police certificate and perhaps updated income documentation from you  Did you address the cause of the 221-G prior to March?  Was your reason to delay the interview for 7 months related to something in the 221-G?  If so, include that when you contact the consulate.

 

I wish I could be more optimistic than @Luckycuds, but if the consulates are not processing K1 visas for the remainder of the year, your 7-month delay (August - March) could mean you have to wait until 2021 . . . and that is assuming your petition is not considered to be expired.  Maybe you did and didn't mention it, but you REALLY should have been contacting the consulate in March, April, or May.  If you didn't contact them, it has now been a year since they last heard from you, regardless of Covid, you may have to start over.  I'm sorry - Jason

I don't think there is any benefit to the timelines now, as the dates are horrifically skewed and we have no insight as to how the algorithm works or will handle these artificial delays.   It will skew the times for at least a year. 

 

The timeline keeps telling me I am past due (been 10 months) yet almost no K1s have been issues in the last what, 6 months?

The benefit is I don’t have to keep asking specifically where they are in the process, when they submitted the RFE, when the medical was etc. and everyone gets mire accurate responses .
