Covid continues to impact the world over but total processing times for K1 Fiance Visas are starting to hold steady at 9-12 months. With most cases being approved by USCIS in 5-7 months, the slowdown continues to be with the NVC and the various Embassies that have been closed or have operated on a smaller staff. The NVC has only been sending approved K1 Fiance Visa cases to Embassy locations that are open and again processing K1 Fiance Visas. This week I have begun seeing more and more cases sent to the various embassies around the world by the NVC. I have also begun to see some previously scheduled interviews that were once canceled due to Covid, being rescheduled. This is all good news and my hope is that we will start to see more improvements in total processing times for the K1 Fiance Visa. Based on what I am seeing, I think we will soon be back to the 7-9 month processing times that we had pre Covid.
