  1. Spent a little time this morning and have been spot checking that data against reports I see on the site. For instance I saw a K1 approved for Santiago Chile and checked it against my best guesses. It was within ~2 weeks fo the actual date. This will vary and outliers for expedites will obviously be way off this data. If you keep your time lines up to date or post here I can adjust the data to try and get the best guesses possible.


    Bogota should currently be processing K1 visas with NOA2 from 2020-08-16 at the embassy


    Here is another chart I put together. After this I'll post back here every time the monthly reports are published.





  2. Hello, I came across the visawhen website that was produced by another member here two weeks ago. This weekend I was bored and started poking at the project to get an idea of what was going on at the embassy. The visawhen combines some visas making it hard to see exactly what is happening. So I broke some of the data apart and wanted to share here. Here are the charts for K1, CR1, IR1, and B1/B2 visas and I'll follow it with what I think is going on along with methodology behind the data.







    It looks like IR1 visas should be pretty much caught up at this point unless we had a huge increase in filing of IR1s during the pandemic. At any rate IR1s look like priority number one and should be all caught up. I would expect the numbers for IR1 to drop in July and for CR1 to shoot up higher. I'm guessing once that backlog is handled they will move onto K1 visas. They haven't even started to put a dent in the K1 visas and I don't expect any real movement for about 2 months. This matches up with what I have seen on the forums here and in other places. I threw in B1/B2 just to show that although they did 5k it's still far behind pre pandemic level.


    This was computed by taking the trailing 6 month average on February 2020 which was the last full month of visa processing. This was so that the average wasn't dropped because of the half month of work done in March 2020. Going forward the average from February 2020 was applied to every month vs the number of visas that they actually processed for a given visa.


    Hopefully this data is good news to some people (mostly CR1/IR1 filers) and provides some data for others. If you have any other interesting data that you could get from these numbers let me know.

    How long did  NVC take for a response after being accepted by USCIS? 

    About a year for the original poster. I'm sitting at 6 months since USCIS accepted mine and they only look to be moving slower now (I'm also waiting to go from NVC to the bogota embassy). About two months ago it looked like they were at least close to pre covid levels but now no one has heard anything.


    I assume you mean take to go from USCIS NOA2 to the embassy. If you mean how long before the NVC lets you know that they got your approved NOA2 you will have to call. The NVC hasn't let anyone know they got their accepted NOA2s that I know of.

  4. I would do it. Was visiting my fiance and was stuck for months because of covid. We wanted to go by the rules so we didn’t get married. Here we are almost a year later stuck with the embassy barely doing anything still. Best case we are looking at over two years from the time we started this process to when i can enter the US on a K1. I wouldn’t wish this on anyone.

    Did you already have your interview at the Embassy in Bogota??? if so when was your visa approved? Ours was finally approved in January but now over 6 months later we still wait for the US embassy in Bogota to give us a date. 


    Delivery services in Colombia are shady and rough so be prepared from from anywhere to a week to two weeks depending on where she lives. My fiancé is in Medellin but again we still waiting to get the friggin interview. It would be awesome to know when your visa was approved and how long it took you to get the interview at the embassy.




    We already have a huge thread for this below please don't hijack someone else’s thread. If you click on the users timeline you will see it shows they have an NVC receive date of 7/13/2020.

    I just got to Munich Germany via Kazakhstan, Inchon and Narita where I started at 4:30 this morning (maybe yesterday morning, I get lost in what day of the week it is; the perks of flying cargo around the world :D), but after getting to my hotel room from enjoying a nice TALL German beer to finish the day  before I sleep and fly again tomorrow, I happened to check the case status and it’s FINALLY in transit to the embassy in Bogota. I’m so happy, 


    The million dollar question, now what do I do and how soon do I do it? This was totally unexpected, I didn’t think anything was going to happen for at least another few months. 


    Super happy for you Taco 🌮 hopefully everything is smooth sailing from here.

    hey ! I just recently mailed my k1 in march and got my noa-1 receipt in april. I have been living in Bogota since september of lat year. I recently graduated from college in may and am looking for some income ... could you give me some info on the remote job you got?? thanks and sorry for being nosey!

    No problem at all. You can direct message me on my profile since this does have much to do with this thread. I will however only be able to help if you have a background in computer science and hold a US residence that you can use for tax purposes.

    Again what we are talking about are immigrant visas. If you have not seen this in your groups, and according to your profile you are k1 then tht is why you havnt seen it. K1 visas are not considered immigrant visas. They are non immigrant

    Yeah its confusing since checking your status on CEAC for K1 is done with the checker for immigrant visas so its pretty confusing when even the US government cant decide on what classification they are.


    at any rate im in CR1 groups also just to see how things are moving and haven’t seen any dates past march as well. So my question still stands.

    Hello, They are actually scheduling interviews for CR1 and IR1 cases with DQ of  June, July and I have seen cases for August and September as well (physical year 2020) .. Hopefully they are picking up and getting rid of all this backlog. My DQ is feb of 2021. crossing fingers for the next update

    Where did you see September cases being scheduled for interview? None of the groups im in have had anything past March scheduled.
