Hello, I have been searching the forums here but have not seen any timelines for 2023 at the Cairo Embassy for CR-1 Visas. What are the waiting times after DQ looking like in 2023? Does anybody know. From what I have seen in 2022 it’s around 5 months. Has it sped up? If anyone has any information on that please let us know.
Hello everyone! This is my first time posting. I am a US citizen (also have Turkish citizenship) and currently living in the USA. I met my fiance through a family friend in the Fall of 2020. We maintained a long distance relationship for about 9 months. In the summer of 2021 I went to Turkey to meet my fiance and we decided to get engaged. We had a small engagement ceremony with both of our families in her house. After spending 3 weeks with her, I had to fly back to USA due to my job. Since my return to the USA, we have been video chatting literally everyday for hours. We now decided to get married but are in no rush. We don't have a significant preference on whether we get officially married in the USA or in Turkey. Nonetheless, our marriage ceremony will take place in Turkey with our families and friends likely in the summer of 2022. I am quite indecisive on whether to pursue a CR1 or K1 visa route. I have a very legitimate and prestigious job in the USA, thus we do not have any financial restraints. Namely, my fiance does not have to work in the USA or make money immediately. Our main priority is to bring my fiance to the USA as fast as possible. It has been really hard to be away from her and we really would like to be together ASAP. I know that with COVID-19 pandemic things have been slower than usual, which is expected. However, I am seeing an improvement in processing timelines. Turkish consulate currently processes and prioritized all K type and immigration visas. My fiance still has 8 months of college to go through before she can come to the USA. However, once she is done with school, we would like to be reunited promptly. If needed be, I can get married officially as soon as in January 2022 in Turkey or can delay it to pursue an official marriage in the USA once she arrives here. I apologize for the long thread but wanted to share as much as I could for the best guidance. Thank you in advance! I appreciate your time.
