  1. American Airlines also announced their summer schedule April 2nd with some direct flights to Europe starting as early as June: http://news.aa.com/news/news-details/2020/American-Airlines-Announces-Summer-Schedule-Changes-to-Match-Reduced-Customer-Demand-Related-to-COVID-19-OPS-DIS-04/default.aspx not sure if this is just the airlines trying to be prepared or if they have some information that we don’t. I hope they do!
  2. You are right. Only reason I’m trying to get a straight answer from the embassy is that I’m thinking I could use it if I was not allowed to travel or enter the US (provided the travel ban is lifted) and have proof the embassy clearly told me I can.
  3. I asked them if the K1 is excluded from the executive order and they responded that due to the travel ban I cannot travel to the US. Then I responded with a link to the executive order signed Wednesday and said “My question is for when the travel ban is lifted. Is the immigration to the US with the K1 visa banned in the below executive order? It is not clear to me“ To which they responded “K1 visas are included in the exeptions for the new Presidential Proclamation, so we will be able to issue K1 visas.” then I told them that I do have a K1 at hand and if they mean I can use it to travel once the ban is lifted and they haven’t responded so far. I am Greek so I also emailed the consulate in Athens saying that I have a valid K1 at hand and want to know if I can travel once travel ban is lifted and they responded just now with the below: “ Thank you for your April 23, 2020 e-mail. We would like to inform you that on April 22, President Trump signed a proclamation suspending entry into the United States of certain immigrants who present risk to the U.S. labor market during the economic recovery following the COVID-19 outbreak.  The proclamation is effective at 11:59 p.m. EDT on April 23 and expires in 60 days, unless continued by the President. U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, and those holding valid immigrant visas on the effective date of the Proclamation, are not subject to the proclamation. No valid visas will be revoked under this Proclamation. Routine visas services have been suspended at U.S. posts worldwide, but as resources allow, embassies and consulates will continue to provide emergency and mission critical visa services for applicants who are not subject to this presidential proclamation. The full text of the presidential proclamation is available on the White House website at:  https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/proclamation-suspending-entry-immigrants-present-risk-u-s-labor-market-economic-recovery-following-covid-19-outbreak/ https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/News/visas-news/Proclamation-Suspending-Entry-of-Immigrants-Who-Present-Risk-to-the-US-labor-market.html#ExternalPopup ”
  4. It’s ridiculous that the same embassy gave us different answers for the same visa!
  5. Thanks! I already sent them another email asking for that clarification but they still haven’t responded.
  6. This is the answer I got from the Madrid embassy. I already have my K1 visa and asked them if I can travel after the ban but I think they didn’t get my question. I guess their answer is clear enough though.
  7. Thank you! i just had a call with the immigration specialist and he confirmed what you suggest.
  8. Hello! I am not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I am in process for the Fiance Visa and actually I am at the stage where the Embassy has all my paperwork and I am waiting on their confirmation to book my interview appointment. I recently informed my employer about it and they mentioned they don't want me to leave the company so they are offering me a position in the US with an L1 Visa (as they want to avoid having to wait for my AOS through K-1 which takes 5-6 months). Does anyone have had a similar situation or know if it is possible to be in process for 2 visas at the same time and what issues this might cause? Thank you!
  9. Hello! has anyone booked an interview for February at the Madrid embassy yet? What are the available dates you saw on the website??
  10. Hi! thanks for the info. thats really good news for you! I just checed and it says "at NVC" I still hope it gets sent today or tomorrow to be honest.. 21st seems too far! btw did you get any email from NVC? I am confused because the asked me to give them an email address but not sure what they'd use it for. Thanks!
  11. hello eveyone! NVC received our case also on Dec 23rd. We just called (waiting time a little less than 10 mins) and they told us they assigned our case number today and gave us the number. Also asked me to give them an email address. I saw on the pdf that the next shipment is 7th of January so hopefully we will be on that one!
  12. We are in process for K-1 now and our case is at NVC and hoping I can be in US by May - June and immediately get SS then married and apply for AOS as fat as we can. I didnt find much info when looking online, but they had mentioned to my fiance at the interview for reserves that they can speed up the process when he joins (if he passes that will be in May) but i am not sure if they realised it was K-1 and not a spousal visa or what process they meant exactly. Does anyone know if it is possible to speed up AOS if he is in reserves? I care more about AP as my best friend is getting married and she asked me to be the maid of honour but with current AOS EAD and AP processing times it doesn't look like I could make it Thanks!
