K-1 Visa Processing Timeline

The processing time for the K-1 fiancée visa can be a bit different for everyone. Before 2018,  the processing time was about 5 to 7 months. However, with the new administration, the processing times are now taking around 6 to 9 months. When you choose Cherry Blossoms Visa, we make sure EVERYTHING is done correctly the first time.
