Comments : my fiance had something on her medical exam that required an additional 2 months of testing and waiting for results. When we got the results and went to make a new appointment the closest date was 2 more months away. In total a 4 month delay. We are so frustrated by this.

Did you fill out the DS-160 yet? Are you using a lawyer either in the US or DR?

No and no. Haven’t received anything from the NVC yet

Folks the last 2 weeks have been very frustrating. Everything they tell you is for the immigrant visa process and the k1 is not an immigrant visa so you get confused easily with all the foolishness. It’s a different process. We sat around waiting for 2 weeks only to find out we should have filled out the DS160 once the case arrived in Santa Domingo and said “ready” when you check the status. Www.usatraveldocs.com/do is where you will need to go to fill out the ds-160, schedule your appointments (one for fingerprints and the other for the interview) and pay the fee of $265 per person. You have to do the DS 160 and pay first so you can get the number for the appointment. Once the NVC sends you that email saying your case was sent they won’t email you again you will be on your own. We sat and waited thinking they would notify us and they didn’t. You have to do the rest yourself ie fill out the ds160 schedule your own interview and fingerprinting.

Interview was easy. They asked us mainly about how we met which was thru a dating app. About 7 or 8 questions in all and we were done in less than 10 minutes. They did not want the letter or intent to marry or the affidavit of support or any photos or anything like that. Only her police record medical and passport. Because of the delay with the medical she has to leave before it expires on 09/18 so they told us to wait that same day for the passports. We are glad this process is finally over because it has been expensive and time consuming.

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
