Excitement begins to run through your veins as you just received the 'final' approval notice for your K-1 fiance visa...or so you thought.The K-1 fiance visa is actually a 3 step process before a final fiance visa is issued for an intended spouse to travel to the United States to marry.
First, an I-129F is filed. Once approved, the approval is routed to the Department of State ("DOS") National Visa Center("NVC"). Finally, the selected Consulate abroad conducts an in person interview in order for the K-1 fiance visa to be issued. It's important not to set a concrete wedding date and venue. Send out invitations only after the issuance of Visa at the U.S. Consulate.
