Hi All,

I have been waiting to get my K1 visa, so I can travel to the USA and marry my fiancé. I have a dependent child who is aging out as she is reaching her 21st birthday very soon. Us consulate is not doing any regular visa processing due to lockdown in India. I have already informed US Consulate about my situation but they provided me below reply.


“Please write to us with this case-specific question after the consulate has resumed regular visa services. The consulate is unable to reply substantively about case-specific questions at this time.

My daughter will age out soon and lose her eligibility to travel to the US with me.

Any guidance is appreciated in this matter.

Did you request an expedite or emergent handling?

YMMV

I realize now that Mumbai is probably the consulate that issues K1, not New Delhi. Regardless, I haven't seen any sign of them doing Ks either. I don't see any clear instructions for how to request an emergency appointment with the immigrant visa unit, only for non-immigrant visas. You can try emailing again, emphasizing the fact that you're requesting an emergency appointment due to a derivative K-2 applicant who is likely to age-out of their visa eligibility before routine appointments resume.

That is exactly what happened with my case, K2 child aged out and now will not attend the interview.

US embassy was like a wall, could not get through to them, and when i got replies, it was same type bs as you got all the time, until 21 was reached.

They dont give a (removed)about anything. What a bunch of animals thats the only way i can describe them. Careless people, and i paid for everything, and i am paying for everything. 

We need to understand immigration is a business, and looks like whatever emotions we have regarding our families we must to throw them out of our lives and obey this nonsense that they impose on all of the people.

They fail to provide service for US citizens.

I am in a similar position.  Daughter of my Colombian fiancée will likely age out when she turns 21 in February.  Our I129F is still at the CSC and things are not looking good.

 

My Congressman did make an inquiry but got a boilerplate response.  Would be nice if Congress actually took action but that seems unlikely.

 

For me there is a faint possibility as I have some medical issues.  If the doctor agrees surgery is needed then maybe we could expedite.
