How to Get a K-1 visa Interview Approval
even if you know nothing about the process or have lot’s of ‘Red Flags’

Don’t take chances. The K-1 visa Interview is the final and most important step before you two start your lives together. Preparation makes the difference between approval and denial.

Control your own K-1 outcome and get an approval, without hiring expensive attorneys or filing services. 

It’s depressing to think one single interview determines your future happiness. There’s so much riding on the approval because you want to begin your lives together.

It’s a scary thought that if you’re denied, you have to start all over again.

● All your exciting life plans are on hold.

● Months of agonizing waiting, separation and constant anxiety

● Spending even more money

● A bad “denial” stamp on your immigration records.

● Worst yet, there’s no guarantee that you’ll pass next time.

I used to fantasize worst-case scenarios…you know, where you think a small detail in your form, paperwork, or document may cause a denial. Many sleepless nights stressing over it all.

I mean, just take a look to sense the anxiety from the couples I’ve had the pleasure of helping over the years…

Let me take a guess. You have the same exact feelings and it’s unbearable right now.

But, you know what? You cannot give up now. Just keep in mind how

Life is finally coming together 

● Excited family, friends are waiting to meet your fiance(e) 

● long you’ve waited and money you spent

The K-1 visa Interview is the final and most important step before you two are together again. 

 

This really counts and you must be ready

You absolutely can NOT risk anything before this interview. Know why? Because the US Embassy has the final and sole authority to issue or deny a visa. No argument or pleading. If they don’t approve, then it’s game over.

That’s what really shocks my mind. How could someone get to decide if my relationship was true or not? just from a short interview?

Here’s how one of my readers put it:

Approval means you will finally be together. It’ll be one of your most happiest days to see your fiance(e) arriving at the airport. 

 

Doesn’t it feel like a dream? 

The idea that one day your fiancé will finally be married to you. 

Do you stop everything you’re doing just to answer their text messages? call each other on time every day? feels like life will be complete with them around? Just imagine how it’ll feel when you’re actually standing in front of each other.

It’s going to be reality soon. Instead of saying “goodnight” on the phone — you’re actually going to kiss each other goodnight. Not just going to plan vacations — but actually going to them. 

All of these things don’t happen by themselves.

 

So, what’s the secret formula for approval? 

How do you know the months of stress were worth it?  All that time waiting and biting your nails, the excitement of your friends and family, wondering what’s going to happen next.

Here’s the truth: there’s no secret — you must be prepared — and YOU must take responsibility. Take control of your future because it’s a privilege not a right. Lawyer, attorneys, filing services or anyone else will not put in the work, like YOU will. 

Here’s what you must remember

● It’s Your happiness

● Your future

YOUR CASE

If you work smart enough, you will succeed

An attorney, filing service or other representative won’t put in work, like you will. Don’t assume that because you paid someone — they’ll get you an approval.  That’s not how it works.

In fact, you’ll read below, you’re still stuck doing most of the work. Which never made any sense to me…Take the matter in your own hands.

When I urge couples to take control and give them the right resources, these are the type of responses I get:  

 

37% of applicants fail at their first interview

You might’ve seen my email saying how 80% of K-1 visa applications are approved at the US Embassy. It’s true.

But that doesn’t mean that all were approved without a problem. Look again at the chart…

Do you see the “Refused” part? At their first attempt, these many K-1 visa applicants were denied at the interview. That’s more than 1 out 3 applicants.

The “waived/overcome” K-1 visa applicants may have to go through months of painful Administrative Processing ordeal. If they “overcome” it, then they’re approved. Unfortunately, the K-1 visa denial rates are increasing — you can read about it here k-1 visa statistics show increasing denials

So, what’s so surprising about this chart?  37% of the applicants fail at their first attempt. Then they go through months of heartaches hoping to fix problems. Out of those, only half are approved. 

Remember I urge you to be prepared and proactive? that’s why!

Again, take a look for yourself at the DOS nonimmigrant statistics (look under “Issuance and Refusal data”). The numbers don’t lie.

 

Why you must absolutely prepare well

The USCIS or the US Embassy can take a long time to process your caseIt takes time and hard work to prepare for the big day. The more you do the more confident you’ll be in approval.

Do you know the most common reason for denials? It’s when applicant’s aren’t prepared. The 221(g) denial is issued due to missing or incomplete documents, or not having convincing bona fide evidence of relationship (because of “Red flags”).

Don’t just take my word for it, check the US Dep’t of State’s website. See the US DOS list of denials. Look under “visa refusals” to types.

For 2016 out of the 300,000+ immigrant denials (including K-1), a vast majority was 221(g) which is predominantly refusal due to missing documents or fraud (not enough bona fide evidence).

Don’t risk months of separation, wedding plans, and thousands of dollars because you weren’t ready. 

 

No one will do it like you can (with a little help…)

How can anyone expect you to battle immigration all by yourself? this is probably one of the first times you’re dealing with them, right? 

I know what you’re thinking:

Can I just be safe and hire a professional? After waiting a long time I don’t want to risk it.
it's important to clearly describe your situation in the k-1 fiance visa interview for best results
You’re not alone in thinking it’s safer just to hire an attorney or filing service. Professionals are very good. It’s true. They’re professionals for a reason. 

But, they have a serious handicap.

They can be careless because they can’t spend time to understand your case. They earn real money going after big-business clients not small family petitions (such as K-1 visas). To them it’s not worth their time. It’s not their priority. In the end, their quality of work bad. This makes it common to see RFEs, delays or even denials.

I used to think they have special connections, or they know secrets, shortcuts, or loopholes. That’s totally wrong. 

They can only file the petitions on your behalf — simply fill out your paperwork. That’s it. They can’t go to the interview for you, talk to the consular, or pick up the phone and work magic. In fact, they leave most of the work to you. You collect your own documents and make your own files.

How does this make any sense especially since you pay them for their services?

I don’t have the time to do all of this. 
It’s understandable, some of us are too busy to sit down and fill out forms or learn about the K-1 visa. Maybe in this instance, I would say, “yeah, go ahead and hire someone”.

Using proof of relationship in your fiance k1 visa as bona fide relationshipBut, let me ask you: What if after hiring someone you still get denied? It’d be terrible, but somehow you’d have to make the time to go through the entire process over again. Or deal with administrative processing, right?

What sounds better, spending some nights learning and preparing yourself? Or spending several more months waiting — not to mention paying for the I-129F and visa all over again?

It’s better to spend time now to polish up your case to your own satisfaction. Again, even a hired professional is busy and may make mistakes.

I’ve never done anything like this before. I’m not sure I do it correctly myself. 
It’s new but it doesn’t mean it’s impossible. No one is 100% confident that they’re doing it right. And to add to struggle you don’t know who to listen to.

The USCIS reviews your I-129F for a fiance visa

Let me break it down for you. Every case needs to focus on 4 key things. You must 

● Understand “inadmissibilities”

● Comfortably meet all requirements

● Address all your “Red Flags” (right now)

● Understand the K-1 process 

These 4 things really affect your approval. You need to make you got these down. 

No one else will dedicate time to your case like you. Who else but you will put in quality of work, attention to detail? You, because it’s Your Happiness, Your Future, Your Case (remember that?)

 

How do you prepare for approval?

Plenty of resources are out there (even free). So, why listen to me? 

Those websites out there don’t have complete information. They’re just bits and pieces.

Let me explain. Most K-1 visa blogs are of applicants who went through the process. But they explain everything in just their case. They focus on what they did and how they did it. You’re left asking if these things apply to YOU.

I can’t help it. I have to jump in and correct someone before it get’s them a denial…

Then you have to jump from site to site looking for the right answer.

Other times, they have wrong information. I can’t remember how many times I’ve jumped into forum threads just to prevent a tragedy. People intend to do good but end up doing the opposite.

Pick the right coach. Here’s what it comes down to — it’s a matter of having the right coach guide you to the finish line. This coach has to be meticulous in every detail. He/she has to provide you the RIGHT information. 

Even if you’re inexperienced, and never filed an immigration form in your life, a good coach holds your hand to lead you step by step. 

 

What you need to know before the K-1 visa interview

NVC case processing. Do you know how to keep track of your case in this stage? There’re ways to prepare for the interview even at this time. Don’t make the same mistake like most couples — to simply ignore it.

Embassy Case processing. How do you make sure you’re ready? Do you know the exact procedures of your Embassy? Details in your forms perfect? Does this Embassy have a special requirement?

Filing for the K-1 Visa. The most important part. How do you know you’re doing these right? You need:

  • DS-160. Step by step guide with explanations of all the questions. Some of these are very confusing.
  • ★ Medical Exam. How and when to have the exam. What to do if there’s a problem? What does it even mean?
  • ★ Police Clearance. Lived in other countries before? maybe for work? Do you know how and when you need a PCC?
  • ★ I-134 Affidavit of Support. Make sure you show enough income. This is actually one of the most common reasons for denial.
  • ★ Proof of Relationship. Effectively gather the best bona fide evidence. Then present it in the most convincing way. This is you savior if you have “Red flags“.

 

 The K-1 Interview. Here’s the final part. Know the exact procedures to be confidently prepared for the big day. A good coach will make sure you walk into the Embassy confident.

  • ★ How to prepare. Advice on how to gathering documents, rehearsing your documents, and traveling. You’d be surprised the things you have to review.
  • The Procedure. What happens during the interview. Step by step guide to know what’s going to happen on the big day — even before it happens.
  • Common Questions. The common questions and procedures during the interview. And the best way to answer questions.

If you’re still not sure

To this very day, I wish I had the opportunity to convince this one reader how important it was to prepare. It honestly haunts my memory.

A new reader reached out and briefly asked for a few tips on her interview.  I responded just like I always do. Gave her a few tips, examples and some routine guidance.  She sounded desperate, but she didn’t say much after that. 

Days later, she emails back and was heartbroken.

 

She finally revealed how both families were against the wedding because a cultural reason. She wasn’t even sure if her fiancé would be allowed back to meet her.

She was also giving birth alone and marriage in the country was not an option. Her ONLY option was to get a K-1 visa and get to the US to marry the man she loved.

Here’s the worst part. I figured out why she was denied and it was preventable. In fact, it was a simple fix. She simply was inconsistent with what her fiancé’s attorney wrote in their I-129F petition and what she said at the Interview. Had she talked about it with me, it would’ve prevented a tragedy.

 

You may not even know you have a problem

The point I’m trying to make is that you don’t know what’s hurting your case.

MOST, if not all of your “Red flags” and issues be fixed right now. Save yourself the agony and heartache of denial.

I remember my fiance’s K-1 visa process like it was yesterday. After every night, the phone call would end with her in tears. She’d ask why it was taking so long.

Our K-1 process took over 300 days. We simply HATED the waiting. I used to check my email every 2 hours for any response from the USCIS. Then closing my eyes and putting my head down.

We felt so helpless that we didn’t even plan a wedding because we weren’t sure about approval. I wanted to do everything possible so we could be together.  

Could you Imagine a denial after all of that waiting, planning, bonding, suffering and cost? Starting over wasn’t an option for us. Now you understand, why it’s so necessary for you to be approved.
