US consular posts to resume K fiancé(e) visa processing wherever local conditions allow
Pasricha & Patel
U.S. Department of State has announced that its U.S. consular posts will begin to process K-1 fiancé(e) visa applications as local conditions permit. Applicants should check the website of their nearest U.S. embassy or consulate to check what types of services the particular cost is offering right now.
COVID-19 crisis caused the suspension of all types of regular visa services at the U.S. consular posts for the last few months. And it is only now that some U.S. consular posts are beginning to resume their pre-pandemic operations, and only in a limited basis. As the U.S. Department of State suggests, the visa applicant should regularly check with their local U.S. consulate website for any updates.
This is certainly good news for those who have been worried about their K-1 visas expiring, or expired already, as they can now start to contact their local consular post to extend those visa validity dates.
