Timeline

I had my original interview date in Paris in April but cancelled due to COvid-19. I moved the interview to JUNE, when I suspected they were going to cancelled, changed it to July. Same thing happened, befor ebeing cancelled I moved my appointment online to Sept 2nd. I tried moving the date once more but it says no available interview dates after sept 2nd. I want to know if anyone has had their K1 visa interview in Paris? I know they are under the proclamation, but im keeping this date since I cant even move it. Maybe I will receive a letter this next week of it being cancelled but idk. Is the embassy Open? will they finally let me and my fiance have our visa interview? Its hard to wait.

Paris issued 2 K-1 visas in June, but I assume they were exempt from the Schengen Area proclamation. https://travel.state.gov/content/dam/visas/Statistics/Non-Immigrant-Statistics/MonthlyNIVIssuances/June 2020 - NIV Issuances by Post and Visa Class.pdf

For example, they could have met the following exemption: "(iii) any alien who is the parent or legal guardian of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, provided that the U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident is unmarried and under the age of 21"

If the embassy hasn't opened the schedule for a particular month it's usually because they have not filled the month they are in/current process month. Keep checking.

 

Check to see if your embassy is processing visas and which ones. If your results return 999 that indicates that they are still not processing that visa type. Your mileage may vary.

There have been some posts in the K-1 visa Facebook groups from beneficiaries in France. Most have mentioned that their interviews have been repeatedly rescheduled since March. Someone also posted a screenshot of an email from the US Embassy in Paris stating that they are not processing K-1 visas at this time unless you are exempt from the Schengen area proclamation. I am not sure if this is accurate information or not, I am just relaying what I have seen/heard from other applicants. Sending you positive thoughts and well wishes during these hard times.

That sounds right because the proclamation is clear: "The Secretary of State shall implement this proclamation as it applies to visas pursuant to such procedures as the Secretary of State, in consultation with the Secretary of Homeland Security, may establish." https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2020/03/16/2020-05578/suspension-of-entry-as-immigrants-and-nonimmigrants-of-certain-additional-persons-who-pose-a-risk-of

 

How can K-1 applicants (that are subject to the proclamation) guarantee to the consular officers that they'll first go to an unrestricted country for 14 days before attempting travel to the US?

Can confirm cause I'm one of those who posted their email reply from the Paris embassy on one of the Facebook groups. They've used the March proclamation to suspend k1 at the moment. I'm currently on my 4th reschedule and I suspect that will get cancelled too
