  • K3 Visa Historical Processing Times

    The following graphs indicate the historical processing times for various key steps along the way to obtaining a K3 Visa. This is useful so you can judge historic and current trends in processing times. The x-axis of the graphs indicates the date for the data with the most recent dates being on the far right (the far left is the oldest dates). The y-axis represents the actual processing time for that historical period.
