Each month, VisaJourney dives into the official US State Department data and captures the latest Family & US visa approval trends for K1, CR1, IR1 and IR5 visas. This page is updated monthly.
- K1 Visa stopped for 9 months. It started again in January but there doesn't appear to be any effort to clear the backlog.
- IR1 Visa and CR1 Visa processing stopped for 5 months but started again last September. There was a huge push to clear the backlog (seen by the processing spike below)
What are your thoughts? It looks like K1s are not getting any priority which means longer wait times from petition receipts to interviews -- keeping family apart.
