Hi Everyone. 


Two questions: 


1. We still yet to hear from the US consulate at Casablanca and it doesn't seem like they are processing many K1 Visas if at all. Should we scrap this get married in Morocco and file for spousal visa?


2. We also filed for the DS-160 and paid the fee for the K1 Visa back in September, does that DS-160 expire after a certain time, and will the fee goes with the expiration?


Thank you all

Filed: Citizen (apr) Country: Morocco

if you are this far into the process ,  probably not 

i always recommend Cr1 for Morocco but you're so close now with your K1

interviews will happen  /  but for now the Morocco has closed the borders ,  planes can't fly in or out and no ferry service

so, if u could interview ,  you couldn't come yet and the medical exam is also the expiration date of the visa 

making it more difficult as to the timeline to travel


patience ,  my friend

and pray you are approved 

as a CR1 would take 18 to 24 months from date of a new petition


if you are more comfortable with CR 1 ,  apply

but is USC there as no one can fly in?

does USC have current police report (within last 90 days)?

does USC have all other needed documents to marry like :

     1.  any original divorce papers

     2.  birth certificate?

     3.  birth certificates of kids?

     4.  proof of US income?




look at the US embassy for steps to marry and documents needed before u withdraw the K1  / everything u need to know is on the site

travel to Casa for affadivit of eligibility and USC has to have an appointment for this and the fees

travel to Rabat to office of foreign minister

travel back to moroccan's home town for medical exam and meetings with police and judge

cost of getting all US documents translated to Arabic is the biggest cost 

in 2010  it was $10 (100 dh) a page and we needed 6 copies
