  1. Hi everyone! Here's a new group for anyone who has just applied for AOS from K1 in July 2018! Fingers crossed for everyone!
  2. Hi everyone, wondering if anyone has any knowledge or experience on this. Received an RFIE letter today that is asking for income evidence for a co sponsor for a man I have never heard of. We aren't even using a co sponsor. They have mixed us up with someone else. My lawyer is going to write back to USCIS saying they have made an error. Anyone know what will happen to my case after this? Does the timer start back at zero? Has my case been lost? Does that mean my EAD is lost/mixed up with someone else too? Very confused. Hopefully things will mend themselves quickly but I have also read that stuff like this can maximise the wait time. I am AOS'ing from K1, still yet to receive EAD/AP and I'm a June filer. Anyone that has experience with this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  3. Hey all I’m starting this thread for any South African couples waiting for their visa to be processed, petition approved, or couples who have already been approved. If you have any stories or advice please do share. I sent my petition in on 02/12/2018 it was delivered 02/15/2018 I received my NOA1 02/20/2018. I’m currently waiting for my NOA2
  4. Hey everyone! I started this thread to help everyone from Argentina who have their NVC case number or are about to have it. Sorry if there are some writing mistakes, english is my second lenguage. FIRST if you have your case number, you can track it through the CEAC website https://ceac.state.gov/CEACStatTracker/Status.aspx (chose the Inmigrant Visa option and the put your BNS number). When it is being transfer to the embassy, it will show 'IN TRANSIT' and when it arrives it will show 'READY'. In other cases, NVC emails you and let you know the case is in the way to the embassy. Remember NVC shipments are every other Tuesday. SECOND If you are waiting for your case number or waiting the READY status, you can start gathering the documents for Packet 3. You can see what is required in this link https://ar.usembassy.gov/wp-content/uploads/sites/26/K1-K3-Instructions-packet.pdf . You will have to send this packet to the embassy before the interview. Below I'll point out what you can start doing. (everything is copies, not originals) Visa Photos. 5x5 with white background Birth Certificate AKA Acta de Nacimiento. It is a faithful copy of the books where the birth is registered. It should have the City's Registro Civil Stamp where the person was born, and Copia Fiel Stamp and one more that says it follow the country law (this one changes according the province). If you don't have it, you can order it online (http://portaldetramites.cba.gov.ar/v/552 this is for Cordoba for example) or go to the Registro Civil of the town you or your fiance were born and request it. Divorce Decree, I don't hae more information about it because neither me or my fiance were married before. If you have information on how to it should be, comment down bellow! Evidence of Support. You need to proof your fiance can financially support you. Ffor more information https://myimmigrationattorney.com/k1-visa/evidence-of-financial-support/ . You will need from your fiance or your co-sponsor the following docuements A. W2 for the last 3 years till present, it can be signed digitally. B. 1040 Forms or IRS transcripts for the last 3 years till present C. Employment paystubs, 6 months at least D. Job letter, verification of employment. E. Bank statements, at least 12 months F. Form I-134. make sure is signed on page 4 or 5. (if you have blanck spaces complete them with N/A) Police Certificate You must obtain the nationally produced “Certificado de Antecedentes Penales” issued by the “Registro Nacional de Reincidencia”, it must say “con excepción al artículo 51 del Código Penal”. You can google RNR nearer you, it doesn't have to be made in Bs As like the instructions sayed. The certificate expires, you have 90 days of validation. It doesn't have to be expired when you add it to the P3 or when you get to US, please be aware of this so you don't have to do it twice. If you are from another province follow the next points Go to www.dnrec.jus.gov.ar and tried to do it online. If you can perfect, you are all done. But if you can´t is because they don't have your fingerprints and you need to do what is next. In the same website click TRAMITES PARTICULARES, Certificado de Antecedentes Penales ----- INICIA TU TRÁMITE ------ TRAMITE PRESENCIAL In the page that opens chose Argentina---Province----City----- and then chose the one nearer you. Then you continue clicking in SIGUIENTE ----- then chose the option to pay $180 pesos to have it in 24 hs A new page will open where you will complete all your personal information. When you are done, print that form with a copy of your DNI because you will need it for the appointent To pay the fee you can chose to pay through RAPIPAGO or PAGOMISCUENTAS (save the receipt to take it to the appointment) You have to make an appointment to get it, if you are from Cordoba use CIUDADANO DIGITAL and TURNERO. I don´t know how it is in another provinces so if you know comment in this thread how you did it. Evidence of Relationship, you should gather more photos, message record or videocall record. They should be different than the ones you sent on the I-129F packet. IF YOU HAVE ALL OF THIS WHILE YOU ARE STILL WAITING FOR THE 'READY', WAIT AND KEEP READING THIRD Once you see ´READY' you can email the embassy (BuenosAires-IV@state.gov) saying that you know the case is ready and you want to know next steps to take. They can answer the next day or take a couple days. When they do, they can tell you to wait a little bit because they are getting ready for your case or they can email you the INSTRUCTIONS PACKET. The instructions packet is what is mentioned SECOND paragraph with a couple more things like filling DS-160 and information about the medical exam. When you receive the Instructions attached to the email, it means you can schedule your interview and medical exam. FOURTH You will fill the DS-160 through this website https://ceac.state.gov/GenNIV/Default.aspx . You will need some necessary information Your adress in the US National identification number: is your DNI number not your passport Application receipt number/ petition number: Is the one with EAC, WAC, LIN, SRC, NBC, MSC or IOE at the beggining, not the one with BNS If you worked in the US, you will need your SSN number Adresses in Argentina are written the argentinian way (number at last) and the US with number at the beggining This were the more importants for me, comment down below if you have more recommendations Once you are done, you will receive through email your confirmation number, print two copies of it and save the number somewhere because you will need it FIFTH schedule your interview through this website https://ais.usvisa-info.com/ ----- inmigrant visa applicant ------ register ------- I have received a letter from the consular section with instructions to register or schedule a K visa appointment --------- sign up with your email Here you will need your BNS XXXX XXX XXX number, your DS-160 confirmation number and in which DHL you want the documents to be send. Next the website will give ou the payment option and you will chose the one you want (by credit/debit card the payment is instantly and by rapipago takes a at least two days to process the payment) After this you will see all the dates available. If there isn't any date available, email the embassy saying this and asking for next steps and they will let you know when the open more spots. Right now, May 1st the next dates availables are for mid June. So have that in your mind if you are thinking on booking flights or wedding plans. SIXTH Book your medical exam, the doctors information are in the Instructions Packet. If you are from another province, you can ask to be done nearer the interview date so you only have to travel once. The doctor will tell you what vaccines are obligatory (variccela, influenza, triple viral and triple bacteriana), she also will need your case number (BNS one) and she will inform you how much everything will be. Note: you can schedule your SEVENTH Send packet 3 to the embassy, you can drop it yourself to Ave Colombia 4300 Bs As or you can send it through DHL or Correo Argentino if you are from another province. Check everything they ask in the instructions packet is there (if you forget something, you can present it the day of the interview so don't worry. You may not have the medical exam results but you can write a lettere saying you have scheduled the interview nearer the interview date and that will work). Save all the originals for the interview (RNR, Birth certificate, Divorce decree). Send an email to the embassy asking if they can let you know when they receive the packet, so you don't have to worry if they have it or not EIGHTH medical exam, I'll write down below my experience so you now what to expect but it can change if you do it with the other doctor. I did it with Dr Grillo. I went to the Trinidad de Palermo hospital (Sinclair street).You go to the secretary desk at the first floor and announce yourself. They will check you in then make you go to another desk near by to pay for the blood test and x-ray $550 pesos. After that you wait until the doctor calls you. Once you are in the room with her, she will ask you for the passport photos, case number and your passport. She will give you the prescription for every test you have to take and you will pay her fee there $2000 pesos You do all tests in the same hospital but the one that is around the corner (Cerviño street). Level -1. you do the line in laboratory and the secretary will tell you to go to another desk to pay the fee for the Tuberculosis test that is USD 175. Once you are back with the receipt, the secretary will give you a container to collect your urine. Next, you go to a waiting room and without so much waiting a nurse will call you to take out the blood. After that you go to the x-ray desk (is all in the same floor and is easy to know where everything is because there are signs everywhere) and you will wait until they call your name. Come back to the another building (Sinclair street) level 1, and if you have some vaccine missing you have to go to ‘vacunatorio’ that is on the right. You will pay whatever cost is for the vaccine you are missing and you will wait they call your name. The nurses will give the shots and then you are done. I waited outside Dr Grillo office and after 20 minutes she called me. She completed some information in the computer and then she took my blood pressure, listen my heart, measured my height and weight and tested my visual. After that she told to come back at 4pm for the results. I went again at 4. The medical was approved. She gave me the closed envelope I have to take with me to the embassy. Total time spent: 2hours in the morning and then picking the results 15minutes Total cost: $10250 + vaccine cost NINETH embassy interview. You don't have to do the tourist visa line, go to a window and say you are there for K1 visa. They will give you a green folder where you put all the originals (birth certificate, divorce decree, medical exam closed envelope, passport photos, more evidence of relationship if you want to add more, confirmation page). Do not make a copy of everything you sent on P3 because is a waste of money, paper and time. Just worry about the originals and what you missed in P3. Once in, they will call you do deliver the green folder THAT IS NOT THE INTERVIEW. The next time they call you it will be for the interview. They will make swear everything you presented and what you will say is the truth. The questions can be: - how we met? - when and where we met? - what I was doing in US when we met? - when I came back from US the last time? - what he does for living? - what would I do for living? - where I will live? - how and when we got engaged? - when we will get marry? The consul can be empathetic and nice, or it can be really serious. The interview can be in english or spanish and you can request it to be in one lenguage or the other. The interview can be 5-20 minutes long and you can be at the embassy for an hour or more, it depends on how long they make you wait. TENTH you can check also the status of yout visa here https://ceac.state.gov/CEACStatTracker/Status.aspx noninmigrante visa -- buenos aires argentina -- the confirmation number of the DS-160. In there you will see if it is under Administrative Process or when it is Issued. After it is Issued, the embassy will send you an email with the tracking number. You will pick up you packet in a DHL office when is delivered. I hope this post and thread helps, I did my best to gathered everything I went through. if you have doubts or question don't hesitate on posting, we are a big community and we have to help eachother to be as soon as possible with our 'media naranja' Cheers!
  5. Hi! We will be filing for my AOS shortly, and since tomorrow marks the start of a new month I thought it would be appropriate to start a new thread for all June filers adjusting from K1 visas. If you're filing soon or if you think you'll file within the next few weeks, please join
  6. Hello, I've had to make an account to ask a question I don't seem to be able to find the answer for. I'm looking over my documents for my interview in London, which is in two weeks time, and on the I-129f form under beneficiaries parents we have put the name of my not-biological father. He is my parent though and he has looked after me since I was six months old. I have also changed my surname so that I have his and everything from medical records to school reports have always been in his surname. I filled in my DS160 about 3 weeks ago and because it stated that it wanted biological parents information I filled in that form with my biological fathers information. Now I'm worried that because the my father on the I-129f and the DS-160 do not match it could cause an issue. Has anybody got any experience in this? Or any advise? Thanks in advance.
  7. Hey All, so I've been reading a bunch on this new rule being implemented on October 15th. I have my interview at the embassy on that same day - will these new changes apply to me? I know it will affect us when we adjust status once my fiance (USC) and I are married but I just can't see anywhere if it will be implemented for my interview. Any insight will be much appreciated.
  8. Hi all, I’m sure this has been posted before however I was unable to find the forums. I am the usc currently going through the K1 visa process with my fiancé. He use to go to school in China for 2 years but is now back in his home country and we need to get his police clearance for the next phase of the process. We do not have an interview scheduled yet but are trying to be proactive to get all documents needed. We keep running into dead ends when it comes to reaching out to his friends out there to help and go get it for him. Is there anyone out there that can provide assistance or insight on how we can obtain one? Or even just the clearance from his school? Please reach out thanks!
  9. Hey all, I've been using this site as a resource for a long time but I have been in stealth mode. I just wanted to share a little about the process as my wife and I experienced it so maybe it will help anyone in progress. We applied for the fiance visa in October, 2017. No additional documents were requested and my fiance (at the time) had her interview in Costa Rica in August, 2018. She was approved so I traveled to CR and we came to South Carolina in October and were married on October 6. We sent the requests for the work permit and AOS in December, 2018. The wait times looked daunting and I was not expecting resolution of the AOS until the end of 2019 at the earliest. Here is the part where it gets a little scary. We received the AOS interview appointment for May without any news on the work permit/SSN request other than the initial notice that our paperwork was received. I saw several videos and comments from "experts" who claimed that if you do everything right you will not get your AOS appointment first. We gathered all the documents we could without being able to include any items like joint bank account or other financial documents since she had no SSN. We did try to get her an SSN when she first arrived but it seems like there is a debate between the SSA and USCIS about whether or not someone in my wife's scenario should have an SSN. At the interview in Charleston we told our story in brief and then presented an album of our photos starting when we first dated in May, 2015 including wedding pictures and a few more recent ones. I printed a few pages of our chat log from Whatsapp and I had one of our friends write an affidavit. We also presented documents showing we had traveled together and paperwork from her OB/GYN showing that she was pregnant and had a miscarriage in January, 2019 (a whole other sad story). I feel pretty sure that the officers have already reviewed everything before the interview and they have a pretty strong feeling of whether to approve or deny before you even go there. The officer was businesslike but friendly - much more so than the one who processed her paperwork in the ATL airport when she first came with her visa. He was quick to dismiss my concerns about not having any financial records as proof since we didn't have the SSN. He actually made it seem like he did not expect the SSA to give us one. The officer seemed almost grateful when I gave him the Whatsapp log like that was the icing on the cake for him to go ahead and approve us. Success! It seems that since the AOS and work permit requests go to different offices, it really is just determined by random luck and how deep the backlogs are which process moves forward first. That is the main point I wanted to cover. Do not panic if the same happens to you. We were very nervous about that after Googling too much. Good luck to all and feel free to ask me anything. I'm no expert but I am happy to help as many others have helped us.
  10. IR-2 VISA (Questions from a minor, 16 from the Philippines about US IMMIGRANT VISA INTERVIEW, RESCHEDULING OF APPOINTMENT, etc) Hello! I am new here in visa journey. I am 16 years old and currently living in the Philippines. I would just like to ask some few queries about my US Immigrant Visa Interview (to which I have no idea when will take place since I undergo sputum test and need to wait for about 2 months for the culture results, a bummer indeed) So I would like to ask if it's completely fine to have my legal guardian (grandmother) to assist me in the US Immigrant Visa Interview (because I am a minor) since both my mom and step-dad (petitioner) is in the United States and cannot come here for the interview? But my mother will come back here to accompany me once I already got my visa and ready to go in States, it's just that she cannot come into my interview because her time to go out of the country (US) is limited and also because of her work NOTE: This is my first time going out of the country, my mom is already in the States with my step-dad (petitioner) since 2015 and me and my sister (who is 18) are to followed and now fixing this SOME OF MY QUESTIONS: Do we need SPA (Special Power of Attorney) coming from my mom in states stating that she is allowing my grandmother to accompany me in the interview? And do my grandmother (legal guardian) who will assist me would be ask several questions by the US Consul on the Interview? What if she answered a wrong information, would that thing affect my Visa approval? What things should she bring with her? What ID's? What things should we know before the Interview date? Any tips and facts, like some sample of the questions to be asked to a minor immigrant? Do we need to bring pictures with our petitioner (step-dad) and mother for proofs? And what should we expect in the immigration if things go well? AND PLEASE ANSWER HOW TO RE-SCHEDULE AN INTERVIEW APPOINTMENT AFTER GETTING THE MEDICAL RESULT (IF PROLONGED DUE TO SPUTUM TEST) All of your answers and replies would be of great help Thank you and God bless
  11. Hello, Our K1 fiance petition got approved and we also have a DS-160 application number and confirmation. We've tried to follow the necessary steps but we got stuck at trying to schedule an appointment online for an interview. We have tried online several times to schedule, however it has always given us the no available appointments. I was wondering when is the payment usually made ? Is it before or after the scheduling of the appointment? How do you send the payment via mpesa or postbank? We have not made any payments, could this be the reason why we are not getting any appointments dates ? We would like to send the $265 payment via M-Pesa however we do not know the number to which to send the payment, or do we need to go to the Postbank to get the payment information? How can we make sure that payment is attached to our application and schedule an appointment? Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks
  12. I've seen a lot of 'Kightsbridge experience' posts lately, as well as many questions about what to expect and what to bring when you've had past mental health issues, so I thought I'd provide some insight as I had my medical this week. Also, if anyone has any advice they're willing to share that would be hugely beneficial for me and I'm sure many others. I have experienced depression and anxiety in the past and struggled with self harm prior to getting help in the form of medication and therapy, so per VisaJourney's advice I requested a letter from my doctor. I asked for the letter to detail my mental health history and include the dates that my treatment including medication began and ended. After constantly calling for weeks and asking for the letter ASAP, I finally received it on October 9th. The letter said: "I can confirm that (my name) is a patient of mine and since July 2018 she has not had any treatment/medication for symptoms of anxiety or depression. She feels that she does not at present represent any ongoing risk to herself or others. I enclose a brief summary of her notes including past medication prescribed." (THIS WAS NOT ENOUGH) So, after weeks of waiting I am now eager to book the medical. I call up Knightsbridge and ask for the soonest appointment they have which turned out to be the next day (October 10th). Brilliant, I book my train tickes to London, print the remaining documents and pack everything in my backpack for the big day. There are so many posts detailing the journey, the local coffee shops, the best route from Euston (I was early so opted to walk), and what happens at the medical itself, so I will try to only provide the information I haven't seen posted (at least not much). The part applicable to mental health is the meeting/medical examination with the Panel Physician. As soon as I walked into the room she told me she would have to ask me some further questions about my past mental health issues. She asked me to explain it all (symptoms, self harm, treatment) in my own words, then asked me if I am or ever have been suicidal, am harming or have harmed myself, am harming or have harmed other etc. She then looked over my letter from my doctor and explained that while I was on the right track by asking for the letter prior to the medical, the letter needed to include more detail about my past with self harm. At this point she gave me a letter to give to my doctor (or pass on the information in my own letter). The said that my doctor should provide a 'brief medial report' outlining my diagnosis, treatment, duration of illness, other mental illnesses, incidents of self harm, harm to others or suicide attempts, prognosis and opinion of current mental state. (I will upload a copy of the letter for those interested in seeing the whole thing) I was told that I should scan and email the letter from my Doctor once it is completed, and once that is done they will send my medical files to the Embassy. So, I finished the medical, paid the £350 fee and caught the train home. I went straight to my GP the following morning (October 11th) to request an EDIT to my inital letter (very clever way to word it, they didn't charge me this time - I have the Panel Physician to that amazing advice!) Now I'm waiting for the new letter.. God knows how long it will take this time. At least I haven't booked my interview at the Embassy yet! Any advice? Similar stories? Feel free to share as not only do I need some reassurance and tips right now but I'm sure other people would fins it beneficial.
  13. My fiance had his interview on September 8th and we are in AP. His passport expires on May 23, 2020. His Medical was August 22 2019. So when does the “cant expire within 6 months rule apply”? Then If he went ahead and renewed it now anyways, do we update the embassy or CEACs website at all? Thanks

  15. Good day everyone and VJ family. Just an update on my K1 visa process, so received my case number October 1st which contains the details of my case some few Instructions. I tracked my case on the site and it shows ready I have gone ahead to pay for the visa fee and schedule an appointment but I haven’t received my packet yet from the embassy. I also notice they say you come along with DS 160 form unfortunately I have an existing profile on the portal so whiling filling I only updated my records like my passport number and expiry date of my passport. Please what should I do next? 1) Do I send the embassy an email requesting for my packet, which contains the instructions? 2) Since I couldn’t get any DS -160 form, printed out, how do I go about it knowing I already had a profile there I used for my B1/B2 visa application 3 years ago . Please guys I need your expertise on this . Thank you.
  16. I was encouraged to come here in hopes I can get helpful answers on how to report this fraud. I want to have this investigated but not sure how. I need advice. Do I contact the Embassy directly involved or NVC here? I have evidence. The person I am fuming about is a part of this VJ community and in a facebook group I am a part of, so I opted to leave out details of the country but will say its MENA (not one of the banned countries though). I believe in my heart someone at our US Embassy is being paid by a local attorney who collects a large sum of money for meetings prior to interviews. I dont have proof but its a hunch. Because she isnt very smart she has openly talked about this. They are a red flagged couple. So how in the world did he get immediate approval and the rest of us honest K1 MENA couples are still in AP for months? I'll tell you how. That meeting with that attorney Im sure made the difference. Ivefor almost 2 years Ive heard many people saying here how he knows someone at the Embassy and I never believed it, I always blew it off. So here is info on the couple: - She is American not sure her religion - She is between 48-51 (lies about her age each time but whatever) - She is divorced two teenage kids - He is Arab muslim - He is 29 - His brother is married to an American in USA and his american wife is the best friend of the petitioner. Brother int he states introduced her to his brother (all red flags for this country so far right.....let me keep going) - He speaks ZERO english and she speaks zero arabic and have had a translator between them from day one - They did ketab keteb (a big no-no for k1) and hasnt openly admitted it but he himself gave it away - His FB page shows videos of the pre-party before the ceremony and her in the ceremonial dress - The comments under the videos are friends and family congratulating the bride and groom - As soon as his interview was finished, he changed his FB status to MARRIED and tagged her (thinking he is done with interview no need to hide) - She still shows engaged on hers and this guy gets approved on the spot while others who barely have but one red flag are still in AP?? !!! They congratulated him, hardly asked questions and took his passport which is not even typical anymore for K1 MENA since May of this year. The only difference, they met with this lawyer before the interview for a consult and paid a large sum of money. I thought it was for the petition but she did it herself. Im not keeping quiet. What can I do BESIDE email the embassy who Im sure wont reply or do anything about it.
  17. Hi everyone, I had my consulate interview in Sydney last Wednesday and was told everything was fine and that they will issue my K1 visa once they receive my NZ Police Cert. I advised them that I applied for my police cert 20 working days ago and am still waiting for it and also while there, they got me to sign a clearance for to request a police cert for my NZ one on my behalf. Is it because they can get hold of it faster? I really hope so. Has anyone experienced this and if so, how long did it take for you to receive your police cert from NZ when you applied for it and if the Sydney Consulate applied for it on you behalf- was it faster?? Many thanks.
  18. Can one enter the US on ESTA (visa waiver program) while already holding the K1 visa? My fiancé may have to visit the US (as a tourist) to prepare for his permanent move before he resigns from his job in London and move to the US (under the K1). Is this possible? Has anyone done it before? Thanks
  19. The title explains it all. I'm a soldier that is excessively busy and have had barely any time to work on my fiance's visa. I've heard about RapidVisa but never anything in-depth. Has anyone here used them?
  20. Hello, I mailed my i129f packet yesterday and am worrying about my passport picture. Wanted to ask for yalls opinion as to whether you think it will be rejected due to the shadow. I used the state departments crop tool so I know it's centered and good in that respect, but the shadow worries me. Thanks in advance!
  21. So my girlfriend is coming to my home place ,Jordan,hopefully if everything goes well and i hope it will,what is the best to do should we get married in Jordan first and apply for K1 Visa ? or should we just meet here in Jordan and then she apply for the fiance Visa from Usa ? thank you in advance.
  22. Hi all, My fiancé and I had our case approved with the NVC. After a week or so later, we checked the CEAC website and said it was ready. However, my fiancé hasn’t gotten anything from the US Embassy in Bishkek. It has been at least 3 weeks since we had any updates on it. Is there a step we are missing or need to do before the interview information is sent to her?
  23. We have an on-going K1 Visa Petition and I want to visit my fiancé for Thanksgiving. We already have our NOA1 last August 2019 and we are now waiting for our NOA2. I already have a B1/B2 US Tourist Visa. Is it okay to enter the US while our petition is on-going? Can anyone share their experience on this?
  24. Hi everyone, this is my first time posting. After applying for the K1 Visa last December I finally have my consulate interview in November.... so we're going on about 11 months. I've started packing already just to get a jump start on things, and I think i'm doing a good job of documenting, but I thought i'd ask to be sure. I'll be going from Canada to Texas, so the plan is to rent a U-Haul here then drive. I've been numbering boxes then writing the corresponding number down on a paper with what's inside. Not details of every single thing but more generalized like: books, kitchen stuff, decor, pictures, etc. Can anyone who has done the drive across the border let me know how it went for them, and give any pointers? It would be appreciated! ALso, my fiance's sister might come up to help me pack/drive back together. Any idea if we'll have any hassles at the border if she is with me? I can't see why there would be, but figured I'd ask since i'm posting anyway. Thanks everyone!
  25. Hi, Today was my fiancé’s long awaited interview. He had more than enough paperwork, including the I134, but they told him that they needed an updated letter of intent to marry. Is this something I can scan over in the interest of time? Has anyone been in this situation, and if so, how long did it take after the embassy received the letter for you fiancé to get his visa? They took his passport and from the impression he got, it seems that he is in the clear after they get the letter.
