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 processing is way up in May/June/July. Almost to pre-Covid levels. There is likely to be a significant backlog after not approving cases for 10-12 months! Clearing the backlog could take 18 months at this rate.
- IR1 Visa processing is below to pre-Covid rates. Maybe trending down since K-1's may be taking resources away. There is likely a backlog that will take several months to clear given the slow down last year.
- CR1 Visa processing (couples married less than 2 years) is mirroring IR1 Visa trends.
