    South African K1 Visa applicants

    It was done all in one day. I heard the Joburg one is multiple days but I'm not 100% sure if thats true or not. Ill have to ask her about how much it costs, i cant remember off the top of my head.

    Medical was completed in Cape Town today. She said the appointment was at 830 and by the time it was all done it was already 230. Lots of waiting... Basically they did the exam (some basic questions such as mental health, medical past , etc...), gave her 2 vaccines and drew 2 vials of blood. After she had to go to a nearby hospital for the xrays. After she waited for a little and got the Xray results, she went back to the Dr office and handed them off. She was informed that there were no issues and she is free to move onto the next step. All that's left is the interview now!!!!!

    My fiances medical is tomorrow!! I can't believe it. Interview is in 3 weeks. It's all starting to wind down now. This saturday she will leave cape town for the last time as she heads to joburg in preparation for the actual interview. I try to not get too excited about it because i know there are still some things left to get through, but its definitely the beginning of the end!!! I will let everyone know how the medical goes after i talk to her tomorrow.

    Ill post what i did, hopefully it helps you 2) Once I have my embassy case # I can check on their website (https://ceac.state.gov/ceacstattracker/status.aspx) to see when it's received and processed by the South African embassy (status will read "ready") 3) Email / Call the S.A. Embassy to have them email my fiance packet 3 (this way we don't have to wait for them to reach out to her) 4) After receiving packet 3, it will have info about where to get the medical exam and how to schedule her interview 5) Complete medical exam (they will send the docs to the embassy) and schedule her interview. 6) She passes the official interview. 7) She gets the visa and comes to America! Sounds like youre at the "In Transit" phase, which means they should receive it in a few days. Once it reads "ready" on that tracker website, proceed forward. At least thats what I did.

    I got my Feb date around Mid December. Also i know nothing about the IR1/2 Process, only been paying attention to the K1 process so not sure about that 😕

    Only done through Johannesburg. I used to think the same thing but now that I'm at the interview step, I see you can only do the interview through Johannesburg.

    Anyone know how many days the Medical Exam takes (going to Cape Town Dr. Marcus Brauer)? I thought I read that it took 2-3 days to complete but they only scheduled my fiance for 1 day. She was wondering because she wants to do the medical on a Thursday and then fly to Johannesburg on Saturday to get ready for the interview. Thanks!

    For anyone curious, my fiance was going to call the consulate about the K1 visas, but said all they showed on the website for K1 was an email. So she emailed them and got this in response today: Dear Applicant, If the calendar does not permit you to select a date, there are no available appointments for the selected visa category at the chosen Embassy/Consulate. Certain visa categories are very popular and the available slots fill rapidly. As the amount of appointments made available are at the sole discretion of the Embassy the only suggestion we can provide is to keep checking periodically to see if more dates have been released. Thank you, The Contact Desk Support Team Yeah that really doesn't give me a lot of confidence and if anything makes me more worried 😟 Anyway we'll keep checking and get them once it happens eventually.

    So right now it looks like people waiting for appointments are @LuFlolady @pretendthisisfun @madameMaison @Mozam And myself. Anyone else? 😅

    I'll do the same for all of you too!

    I can confirm with my own eyes now. Fiance got Packet 3 today, finished DS160, logged in to the website and got the infamous message of "There are no available appointments at the selected location. Please try again later". Her and I both a little upset, it doesn't make sense to me how there can't be anything.... 😥 We made it this far just to get that? What do we all do now? I guess just keep checking every day? Let each other know when dates come up?

    Any luck with new dates now that the new month has started? 😁 Does it just say no more dates on the website? What happens if you call the consulate and ask about there being no dates?

    This is great information! Perhaps copy and paste into the Consulate reviews? https://www.visajourney.com/reviews/index.php?cnty=South Africa Also my packet is "Ready" as well!! This makes me super excited! It's literally there just waiting for my fiance to interview and then she can come back. We're at the end now! Just a matter of getting UBC, Get an interview date and get the medical done!

    I'm sorry I'm sorry, I probably used poor wording there. This whole process has just been making me more and more negative around when my fiance will actually be able to come back ... Some of the posts before here have said that there were no more interviews in January (dont know if thats true or not just based on what the posts said), so I assumed that if i can't get into January, then february will probably be gone by the chance i get to schedule an interview, therefore March would be my time. So ignore me for now just kinda bracing myself for the worst. Also my fiance told me she was on the phone with (Useless) Home Affairs for 10 minutes today and no one ever came so she hung up and went back to work....I told her she needs to stay on hold longer if she wants any chance to get through. She's been sending them emails as well but those seem to be going into a black hole seeing as we havent gotten a response yet and its already been a couple weeks. I swear if the Birth Certificate holds up this whole process (like what happened to @vistawateraz) I will be so 😡
