Come to your interview

All K1/K2 visa applicants, regardless of age, are required to visit the Embassy or consulate in person for a formal visa interview.

Please show up on time on the day of your interview.  There is no need to arrive early.  You should plan on waiting up to two hours from the moment you go through security until your actual interview.  Electronics are NOT allowed in any Embassy or Consulate for any reason.  If you are bringing minor children with you, you may wish to bring books or small non-electronic toys to entertain them.

You will know on the day of your interview whether you are approved or denied, or if we need any additional information to finish your case. If you are approved for a K-1 or K-2 visa, your passport with your valid K visa and documents will be returned by mail to the mailing address registered in your profile. Processing and mailing time take approximately one week, depending on a number of factors. Should your visa be denied, you will be informed in writing and advised of what recourse may be open to you.

No advance assurance can be given that you will receive a K-1 or K-2 visa. The responsibility for qualifying for a Fiance(e) visa and satisfying your travel and marriage plans rests exclusively with the visa applicant.  Please DO NOT purchase a ticket before obtaining a visa.

Efforts will be made to process your visa case as quickly as possible. Please be aware that processing may take longer for some cases due to required administrative processing.
