United States and Philippines immigration consulting services for family based immigration petitions, which can include planning the client's immigration process, providing travel and hotel stay at Manila, and ground transportation services.

How Long Does It Take?

This entire process from date of filing of the K-1 Fiancée petition until the transfer of the file to the United States consulate tends to take at least six to eight months. The approval of the I-129F was taking around six months as of October 2021. You can check the latest processing times at the Service Center serving your jurisdiction on the "USCIS Processing Time Information" page of the USCIS website. (Choose the Service Center that you'll be sending the I-129F to from the drop-down menu, then click "Service Center Processing Dates.")

Unfortunately, unlike in some immigration categories, you cannot pay extra in order to receive faster or premium processing of a K-1 Fiancée petition. The U.S. embassy or consulate is likely to take 2 to 3 months to process the petition, depending upon the number of other applicants it's dealing with.

Applicant's Information

Can an applicant request an earlier appointment?
If an applicant wishes to advance the interview appointment, he/she should write the Embassy or call the Immigrant Call Center to request an earlier appointment. Please note, however, that early appointment requests will be approved on a case to case basis (i.e., aging out cases, or in cases involving personal or medical emergencies), and only if interview slots are available. 

How much time is given to complete the K-1 Fiancée Immigration application?
The K-1 Fiancée immigration document is valid for four months from the date of its approval. But this may be revalidated by a consular officer provided that both parties are still legally free to marry. It is recommended to gather all the necessary documents for the interview appointment as soon as possible.
