  1. "Among immigrant visa applications, we will prioritize emergency cases and then Immediate Relative family members of U.S. citizens (IR-1, IR-2, CR-1, CR-2, IR-5) including intercountry adoptions (IH-3, IR-3), fiancé(e)s of U.S. citizens (K-1, K-2), and certain Special Immigrant Visa applications according to the Department of State’s priority order." Directly from the official website for the embassy in Bogota. I think they technically classify K1 as a non-immigrant, but treat it very similar to immigrant visas since it almost certainly leads to immigration of the beneficiary. Some of their own language indicates they treat them as immigrant visas too. I wish they could give us rough estimates how long the queue is because all of us have been waiting so long. Good luck everyone.
  2. Thanks, this was just the details specifically about Bogota I was hoping for. This is looking like 1 or 2 flights instead of what I was concerned about!
  3. Some advice would be greatly appreciated about this because I can't find anywhere a similar question. We got our K1 approved. We're waiting for our packet of instructions for her interview, but we did some digging and found the instructions already online. It says that we need to do the medical exam before the interview, and need to do blood screen and chest x-ray before the medical. It also says the only place to get all of this done is in Bogota. I'm curious how little time can be between the blood draw/x-ray appointment and the medical exam. Also how little time can be between the medical exam and interview. The reason why I'm asking this is to possibly avoid the cost and nuisance of 1, 2, or 3 out of potentially 4 round trip flights that my fiancé will have to do. Also I don't know if the fingerprint appointment or any other appointments that I'm not mentioning HAS to be in Bogota, and if again this would have to be a separate day from the interview and how little time can be in between everything. I thought the initial application process and request for more evidence was complicated enough, but this is pretty confusing and the instructions aren't very intuitive. For example if it can all be done 1 day apart: blood test/xray day 1, medical day 2, interview day 3 that would only be 1 flight and 2 nights in Bogota. Saving a lot of time and money. I'm guessing more realistically it could be: 1 trip for blood test/xray, then flying back and waiting for the results. Followed by a 2nd trip day 1 medical exam, day 2 interview. The third option would be really dumb if all 3 need to be far enough apart that it doesn't make sense to stay in Bogota and pay for hotel/airbnb between appointments.
