What Happens After Approval of Fiance Visa Petition?

So what happens after the I-129F, Petition for Alien Fiancé(e) application is approved? The USCIS Service Center handling the case will send a Notice of Action (NOA2) to the U.S. citizen petitioner acknowledging K-1 Fiance(e) petition has been approved. Next, USCIS Service Center forwards the case to the National Visa Center (NVC) for review and security clearance, then gets transferred to the US embassy/consulate in the country where the foreign fiance(e) resides. Each U.S. Embassy may handle things differently but most of the time they send out forms and checklist (commonly called as Packet 3) to the K-1 Visa beneficiary. The packet 3 includes a checklist with documents needed at the visa interview and some forms to fill out. After following instructions in Packet 3, foreign fiance’(e) will get Packet 4. The Packet 4 includes the medical examination information and an interview appointment. (See the flowchart below.)

For the most part, the foreign fiance(e) gets the result after the K-1 Visa Interview. If the K1 Fiance(e) Visa application is approved, he/she has to wait for the K-1 Visa delivery before she/he can travels and enters the United States.
