How many K1 visa are processed each year?

I'm just curious does anyone have a source or know the figures or if they are reported anywhere how many K1 visas are processed each year?

Mainly curious because I was wondering what percentage of K1 visa applicants statistics are represented on this site.

I would think it is a decent percentage because I can't even comprehend anyone going through this process without researching on the net what all was needed and this seems to be the main site to get the information.

I just wonder how many people just send the paperwork on their own without getting the valuable insight and information that is contained here on VJ. I guess maybe many just hire an attorney.

Just as a note to everyone on this site, it is a fantastic resource and community. It is of great comfort to me going through this process reading all the stories and experiences of others in the same situation. I can not even imagine trying to go through this process alone or without this website! So Kudos to VJ and all it's members :thumbs:

USCIS Processing Times and Case Status

November 24th, 2007

From the USCIS:

Applications are processed in the order they are received by application type. The average processing times for all applications are posted on our website. Processing times are an estimate of how long it will take to complete your case. Each case is different; so some cases may take longer than others. You can use your receipt to check your case status on Case Status Online (See the “Related Links” section of this page). Please be advised that we will only research your case if it is beyond our posted processing times (You can also find a link to processing times in the Related Links section).

The processing times are for applications that have been just completed. If you have just filed your application, these timeframes may not reflect how long your application will take to be completed. We encourage you to check processing times before inquiring about your case. The processing times are updated monthly.

USCIS has received a significant increase in the number of applications filed. In July and August, nearly 2.5 million applications and petitions of all types were received. This compares to 1.2 million applications and petitions received in the same time period last year. This fiscal year, we received 1.4 million applications for naturalization; nearly double the volume we received the year before. The agency is working to improve processes and focus increased resources, including hiring approximately 1,500 new employees, to address this workload.

As a result, average processing times for certain application types may become longer. In particular, naturalization applications filed after June 1, 2007 may take approximately 16 - 18 months to process.

When your application is received by a USCIS Service Center or the National Benefits Center, we will mail you a receipt notice. The receipt notice will have all of the important information you need about your case. With your receipt number you can check the status of your case on our website and also register on our website for automatic case status updates as we process your case.

For more information about when and how to contact us, whether your case is outside our processing time, or if there are other issues, please see our customer guide Case Services - How Do I… know what kind of services are available to me after I file my application or petition? also available in the Related Links section of this page.

That is referring to all types of visas and other immigration applications like AOS, citizenship etc. combined. I'm just mainly concerned with K1 or even k3 which is primarily what this websites focus is on. :yes:

Considering going to "members" shows approximately only 34,440 members, and that is over years that this site has existed and includes people adjusting from means other than K1 or K3, as well as CR IR1s, I highly doubt VJ represents a large percentage of K-1 visa filers.

Many people on this site adjust from visas other than K-1 or K-3, successfully. This website focuses on all types of marriage-based immigration.

back in 2006. approvals of K-1 visas submitted March thru June were put on hold. that created a backlog of over 10,000 petitions. so I'd guess there are over 50,000 K-1 petitions submitted each year.

Here is something I found for 2005:

In Fiscal Year 2005, which runs from October 2004 through September 2005, we issued 395,005 immigrant visas and 5,388,937 non-immigrant visas. This data, and other statistics on our visa issuances, are available to the public on the Consular Affairs web site at http://travel.state.gov/visa/frvi/statisti...tics_2787.html.

Yes I realize that, was just trying to counter that the numbers from the press release referred to all types of applications of which I think marriage based application are quite a low percentage.

Thanks for all the great replies so far.

From what I remember and based on the stats that were issued indicated that there were about 50,000 "K" visas issued (K-1/2/3/4) in 2006.

Found this spreadsheet on the Homeland Security website with the stats:

http://www.dhs.gov/xlibrary/assets/statist...06/table26d.xls

It shows about 30,000 K1 visas issued in 2006. Also interesting to note is how the number of visas has increased over the years...from only 12,000 in 1998!

Not surprising with the increasing use of the internet.

Excellent Meridien, that was exactly what I was looking for !

So to satisfy my curiousity I did this basic math. According to the the timeline statistics the last 360 days were 1532 K1 timelines and according to the spreadsheet from homeland security approx 30,000 K1 each year so if you do the math Approximately 5% of k1 applicants use this site, or at least post a timeline.

A bit lower than I would of figured. But of course there is likely a decent number that just lurk and never create an account or timeline.

Still it gives me an idea that when I see in some of the posts here how many applications are approved this month or how many are pending etc. I can just take that figure and take it times X 20 and extrapolate approximately the actual figure at the USCIS.

There are more petitions processed than visas granted. Some don't make it to the end, and other get denied for whatever reason. But I would assume the majority of petitions do make it to visas.
