I-129F Processing Times at the USCIS
Petitioners must first file their I-129F Petition and all other supporting documentation with the USCIS Service Center assigned to their specific state of residence. As of (02/09/2011) The current k1 fiancee visa processing times for USCIS adjudication is between 3-5 months. However, our firm has had cases that get approved in as little as 14 days and as long as 7 months–each case is unique and often times the petitions are approved faster than average times. After the I-129F Petition is approved at the USCIS, it is forwarded to the National Visa Center, a clearinghouse for petitions on their way to foreign US Embassies.
K1 Fiancee Visa Processing Times at the US Embassy
While there are a number of uniform requirements and laws that each foreign consulate must adhere to, most have their own unique way in which they handle the K1 Fiancee Visa process. Thus, time-lines can vary depending upon factors such as specific foreign consular section agendas, visa application backlogs, or any unique requirements of the U.S. Consular Section at your fiancee’s country or place of filing.
Generally speaking, once most US Embassies receive your approval from the USCIS, and assuming your fiancee has the properly prepared paperwork and documentation, you can expect to wait between 1 to 4 months for the eventual interview and issuance of the K1 Fiancee Visa depending upon your fiancee’s country.
