Packet 3 Johannesburg

Hello Everyone,

Can I get some insight from Johannesburg filers about packet 3? We got our packet 3 today and experiencing some difficulties. 


My fiance already filled out the DS 160, but unable to proceed.


K1 is non immigrant but won't let us  do that under non immigration but when immigrant is checked, it goes through.

Not sure if we were put under immigrant visa by the consulate because it requested DS 260 and I 864.


Is anyone else experiencing the same issue? 

Your input is greatly appreciated.

Despite the K-1 visa being a non-immigrant visa, all of processing of it is handled by the immigrant visas section of the embassy.

It is confusing and doesn't make a ton of sense.


So for your next steps, proceed under the immigrant visa section.


I would disregard any info you got about doing the ds-260 and the i-864. As those are not for the K-1 visa

Curious when you got your NOA1 & NOA2. Our embassy is also Johannesburg. 

I got my NOA1 Feb 9 and NOA2 May 17.  You can always reach out if you have any questions, I'll be more than happy to answer from our experience. Everyone on this forum does a great job helping people out. The whole process can be very overwhelming and nerve wrecking, but the support from everyone is comforting.

Thank you so much for that. How did you receive packet 3? Was it via email or mail? It seems like it took a couple months to receive it. 

Yes it did, it was sent via email.
