  • Our Story
    We were high school pen friends in 1985! Met in person in college, 1991. We corresponded by air mail, the old-fashioned way for years and years....this was pre-internet, kids! Marriages, mortgages, careers, kids, divorces and life happened. Reconnected on FB in 2015. We are so lucky!

  1. Immigrant visa interviews are not conducted in Quito, as evidenced by the text above taken from the US embassy in Ecuador.
  2. It even says it on the Department of State's website for the Ecuador embassy: "Immigrant visas to the United States are processed for citizens and residents of Ecuador at the U.S. Consulate General in Guayaquil. To apply for an immigrant visa, a foreign citizen seeking to immigrate generally must be sponsored by a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident immediate relative(s), or prospective U.S. employer, and have an approved petition before applying for an immigrant visa. The sponsor begins the process by filing a petition on the foreign citizen’s behalf with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). You may wish to review our Directory of Visa Categories on usvisas.state.gov to learn about the different types of immigrant visas to the United States, including our Diversity Visa Program. Then, follow the steps on the Immigrant Visa Process, or on the Diversity Visa Process, on usvisas.state.gov to begin applying for an immigrant visa. Once USCIS has approved your petition and you have completed pre-processing with the National Visa Center (NVC), or if you have been selected in the Diversity Visa Lottery and completed processing with the Kentucky Consular Center (KCC), review the instructions given to you by the NVC or the KCC, along with the information presented on this website, for further guidance and instructions."
  3. I don't believe that embassy does IVs. @TBoneTX will know for sure.
  4. Just FYI you won't be able to enter the US on an immigrant visa without your husband. He either needs to be here ahead of you, or with you on the same flight.
  5. Two ways: click on the user's profile to see recent content, or search on the username to see older content.
  6. No. But it may simplify the background checks, which are a huge nightmare for Pakistan due to their inadequate criminal record-keeping.
  7. Really? My son lives in San Francisco, and it is still very much closed.
  8. It's hardly "back to normal," and may never be.
  9. LOL, really? Back to normal? Maybe where you live.... AFAIK there has been no announcement about re-opening in-person consular services. Might want to watch the website for your consulate.
  10. You must be honest about everything in the petition, including dates.
  11. And two years ago, it was 6 months (which we experienced), before us it was 9 months, late last year it was 3 months. Like I said, the fluctuations are normal. And the petition approval is only one small part of the overall process.
  12. That seems long? LOL. It took 185 days from NOA1 to NOA2, which was about average at that time. From USCIS/NVC/Consulate the approved petition transit time was one month, which was lightning fast compared to now. Husband's interview was about two weeks after the petition arrived at the Auckland Consulate - also lightning fast. Certain parts of the process have sped up and others slowed down I guess.
  13. If you have the need for a precise wedding date, do not do a K-1. You could be very disappointed and/or lose money etc. CR-1 is best for people that need to plan a wedding.
  14. We did our K-1 two years ago, and it was about 8.5 months from filing to getting the visa. Historically, processing times really fluctuate though. I have seen petition approval times from two to 12 + months. COVID19 throws another spanner into the works, but the effects (faster vs slower) won't truly be known until later in the year IMHO.
