This is my Personal Blog site detailing my adventure in the immigration process of moving my fiance from Canada to the United States.

I strive to update every few days as my journey continues. Though this is primary of personal use, I hope to post information which will be helpful to others as they take their own journey through US Immigration. Please feel free to comment, share, or email me.

Cheers!

  1. Hi there, my boyfriend and I haven’t started the K1 process but will definitely be using your blog as a guide!! Thanks so much for taking the time to document this journey. I know you haven’t made it to this step yet but do you happen to know how long after the Visa is issued/approved that you have to initiate it (that is to move to the US) – I know once you enter the US you then have 90 days to get married. I’m reading different things online from 4 months to 6 months. Meaning you could potentially have 7-9 months to plan a wedding (if this is even accurate). Thanks! P.S. I’m from Newfoundland as well. 🙂 Cheers!

    1. Hello there! Congrats on your impending engagement 🙂 It’s very cool to see someone else from NL. From the research I’ve been doing you have 6 months to enter the US once your K1 visa is approved. So in reality you have about 5 months. Before that, however, your petition may take 9+ months to go through “the system,” which means from the time it reaches the USCIS until it gets to the embassy and is ready for you to schedule your interview. Our case took exactly 170 days to be approved and then another month for the embassy to schedule an interview. So if he is approved at his interview on October 5th it will have been a total of 256 days.

      It’s usually not recommended to make any concrete plans until at least your petition is approved with your NOA2, but if you want to make plans after your interview, you have 5 months to do it in.

      All the best!
