  1. So I've been following most of the content on visajourney but made this account just to talk about this topic. I'm the US petitioner and here's my K-1 timeline with a Lebanese beneficiary. -Applied March 5 -NOA1 March 9 -NOA2 October 26 -Called NVC November 10 and was told that case would be transferred to embassy. I was shocked!! Apparently Lebanon is conducting interviews even though the website says "Emergency Appointments only" -Case Status Ready December 17. We emailed embassy a few days later and they sent the P3 packet via email. We went through the steps that same week and got an interview date for Monday March 11,2021 (SO EXCITED)! The point is, when you check the website, they say there are no appointments or interviews until further notice. But when we were booking our interview, there are dates every single week from March until August! I'm not sure why this is the case, but our case has moved relatively fast. It makes me curious how many other embassies have all these availabilities but aren't scheduling...
  2. Hi guys, just wanted to show my K-1 visa journey to keep hope alive for whoever is still waiting out there! We applied March 5 NAO1 March 9 NOA2 October 26, such a relief NVC called November 10 and case was sent to Beirut embassy Case Status Ready December 17 Interview March 8. It lasted 3 minutes and they only asked: "How did you meet?" "Where does she live?" "Do you belong to the same church?" "What are the wedding plans?" They never checked our photos, call logs, messages, or anything besides the required I-134, DS160 confirmation etc. He took a giant file with in but they never looked at anything in there. He got an approval letter and was told to come pick up the visa by next week. Online it says the Lebanese embassy is not doing any interviews only emergency cases, but we still went ahead and got the documents once the case status was ready, and found an interview spot!! Good luck to everyone, hope all to be reunited soon
  3. Does anyone know if beirut US embassy processing IR1 visas right now ?
  4. Hi, we were told by the US Embassy in Beirut that "Petitioners residing overseas in countries where USCIS does not have a public counter presence as in Beirut are required to file their Forms I-130 by mail with the USCIS Chicago lockbox. " We're just a bit concerned that sending everything through DHL is a bit expensive , so we're wondering what other Lebanese applicants have used to send their forms to the US. And can a Lebanese applicant confirm that they had to send by mail and filing online was absolutely not an option? Thanks
  5. Hello! I'm a U.S. citizen and my husband is Lebanese. We just got our I-130 petition approved (yay!) and are hoping that my husband can apply soon for the visa. I was told by my lawyer that the current administration has halted all immigration visa processing, including spouses, until 31 December 2020, but I recently saw that two interviews were scheduled at the Beirut Embassy last month. Does anyone have information contradicting what our lawyer said? When I checked the Executive Order, it did mention spouses of U.S. citizens as excluded from the EO but could it be that they meant for couples who had submitted their petitions before the EO was issued?
  6. Hello! I submitted an i130 application for my 8 year old step son who currently lives in Lebanon. His father has lived here for more than 2 years now and now its time we bring his son. Does anyone know how long it takes USCIS to review the i130 application. We completed filing it online and it said accepted and now is under review. I dont remember if its sent to another center and how will I know when its been sent.
  7. Hello everyone I have a question So my IR-1/CR-1 case status have been in A.P for a year+. this week three case updates happened. 2 of them only a regurarl update but still under A.P the third which happened yesterday on Nov 18th 2019 was: Expiring soon. All documents requested have been submitted directly after my interview ( a year ago) my-self- the lawyer and the congress person have been contacting the Us embassy in Lebanon regarding this matter. and always same reply :" Case is under A.P please wait..." so we have been contacting the embassy regurally atleast once a month. but now I am kind of lost on what does this mean? and yes I have contacted my lawyer already but its 3 Am their time so I am hoping to hear news or what is going from you guys here while I'am waiting for my lawyer reply. Thank you in Advance !
  8. Guys I need help... My fiancee had forgot to translate a few documents that were needed for her interview at the Us Embassy in Beirut Lebanon. She had her appointment date on 11-26-2019 and she was told to go get the papers translated and book another appointment. I have been trying to do this all week but for some reason it is asking me to pay the visa fee again. It also keeps on saying this when i reenter the same CGI Reference number "No valid record can be found for the entered receipt number. Please validate that your receipt number is correct and that you have paid the correct amount for the visa which you are applying for." Does anyone here know what to do the lawyer that I hired is not helping what so ever and I have called ustraveldocs and they said to email them and i did but i did not receive anything from them. I called the embassy and they said to email BeirutIV@state.gov and they still havent emailed me back. If anyone here knows what to do please help us!!!!
