In previous articles, we have discussed what a K-1 Visa is. We have revisited some facts about the timeline and what every person should know about it. In this article, let us once again look at the steps you should remember after obtaining a K-1 Visa.
According to the USCIS, once we receive your Form I-129F, you should expect the following:
- Receipt notice confirming we received your petition;
- Biometric services notice, if applicable;
- Notice to appear for an interview, if required; and
- Notice of our decision.
What does this mean? Let us discuss them in detail.
Receipt notice confirming that the USCIS received your petition
The first thing that you would do is that you will receive notice from the USCIS that they received your petition. This would be sent to the address that you indicated as your residence or to your lawyer’s office.
We always say that this is one of the more important reasons why you need to hire a lawyer when applying for a K-1 visa. When you hire a lawyer, you can give yourself the leeway to be a little bit lax while waiting for the results of the application but you are also being responsible enough to make sure that there will be someone who can receive the documents sent by the USCIS. This is important.
The receipt of the notice confirming that the USCIS has received your petition is the first step towards ensuring that you win your application. You get information that the USCIS is now looking at your application so you better clean your act and straighten up, it is as easy as that.
Biometric services notice, if applicable
You will then receive a biometric services notice. The biometric services notice is all about you. It is personal and yet you need a lawyer to help you prepare for it properly so you will not miss anything on the day scheduled.
This is a bit complicated and requires some discussion in another article. The important thing is that you know that after you receive notice of the USCIS application, you will then receive a notice that it is time for the government to take your biometrics.
Notice to appear for an interview, if required
You also need to make sure that you are always on the lookout for notices on your interview. The interview is a crucial part of the application process. To get approved for a VISA, you may or may not be required to report to the USCIS for your interview. We will discuss this more in another article.
Notice of the USCIS decision
Of course, you will receive a notice of whether or not the USCIS and the United States government trusts you enough to have a K-1 VISA in the United States or not. You will receive a notice of the USCIS decision.
