K Visa Processing Update

Last Updated: November 25, 2020

On November 19, 2020, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia enjoined the government from suspending K-1 fianc e visa adjudications for the named plaintiffs in Milligan v. Pompeo due to the regional COVID-related Presidential Proclamations (P.P.s) 9984, 9992, 9993, 9996, and 10041. These COVID-related regional proclamations suspend entry into the United States of aliens who have been physically present in the People s Republic of China, Islamic Republic of Iran, Schengen Area, United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, or Brazil in the 14-day period prior to their entry or attempted entry into the United States. K-1 visa applicants who are named plaintiffs in Milligan v. Pompeo and subject to a regional proclamation should contact their nearest Embassy or Consulate for guidance on scheduling a visa interview. While such applicants may, pursuant to the court order, be scheduled for a visa interview even though they are subject to a COVID-related regional proclamation, the court order does not require that plaintiffs be given special priority ahead of other K visa applicants who have requested interviews or who already have been scheduled for interviews. Even if issued visas, K-1 plaintiff applicants remain subject to the regional P.P.s and, unless able to meet the criteria for an exception, are barred from entering the United States if they have been present in a country covered by a regional P.P. in the 14 days prior to entry.

K visa applicants who are not plaintiffs in Milligan v. Pompeo and who are not subject to COVID-related regional proclamations will continue to have their applications prioritized and processed in accordance with existing phased resumption of visa services guidance.

The resumption of routine visa services, prioritized after services to U.S. citizens, is occurring on a post-by-post basis, consistent with the Department s guidance for safely returning our workforce to Department facilities. U.S. Embassies and Consulates have continued to provide emergency and mission-critical visa services since March and will continue to do so as they are able. As post-specific conditions improve, our missions will begin providing additional services, culminating eventually in a complete resumption of routine visa services. Applicants should check the website of their nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate for updates on what services that post is currently able to offer.

Morning everyone :)

I had an appointment to give my biometrics on Monday. I had assumed that the next step in the process was receiving an update about my EAD but I received a case status update last night telling me that I m going to be scheduled for an interview.

Does this happen often? I m really eager to start working here but I d just appreciate some clarification.

Flew from UK to US on CR-1 Visa

Hey guys, thought I'd give a quick post so people can know a bit more about what to expect when travelling on a Spousal Visa during all the restrictions from COVID. And since I'm in the US now, obviously did it right ?

My flight was booked with British Airways. Manchester to Heathrow and then onward to Seattle.

After booking my flight and managing my booking I did attempt to say I had a proper visa (not ESTA) as there was an option. It accepted it and I thought it worked.

Turned out it didn't cause when online check-in opened, they flagged me and said I had to do it all at the airport. This happens in a few cases for BA but the check-in staff at the airport confirmed it was cause of the visa issues when I got there.

Got to the airport in Manchester and handed over my passport. They looked at my visa and had a senior person look it over. They spoke about how it should be okay since it was issued in July. I explained that if they needed I have marriage certificates, a copy of US spouses passport etc. if they wanted to look at it. They were then happy to send me on my way to Heathrow but warned me I might get taken aside to go over all of this stuff when I'm boarding.

In Heathrow, after handing over my passport, the agent checked with someone behind him. They gave a thumbs up and I was on the plane! So the people in Manchester either passed on that I had everything or they were just happy with the issuance of the visa. Either way, I only needed the visa in the passport, and I didn't show any additional stuff.

Arrived at SeaTac, did my COVID checks and got to immigration and it was business as usual from there like you've seen in many posts before! Except my fingers were so dry from hand-sanitiser that my fingerprints took a few tries lol
