After a rough year of Covid, several busy US Consulates are struggling to restore processing of important family Visas (K1, C/IR1 and IR5s).  VisaJourney did a deep dive into the numbers and the results are surprising (and frustrating).

Do you have any information about the US embassy in Stockholm, Sweden? 🤞

It looks like K-1s stopped a lot longer than IR-1s.  They are SLOOOWLY ramping up but at a snails pace compared to the IR-1s that started much earlier and surged.  Seems like a similar story to London.

There’s something I don’t understand though. Why did the embassy stop issuing immigrant visas last year? Especially IR and CR. 
 

These categories were ultimately not targeted by the proclamation
