How to Bring your Fiancee from Jamaica to the USA

 







Your Jamaican Fiancee needs permission from the US government to allow her to enter the USA. This is called a K1 Fiancee visa.

First we work together to assemble a thick packet of forms, evidences and civil documents. This is required to demonstrate that you are eligible to apply, and that your true agenda is a genuine life together,not immigration fraud.

My signature philosophy is that a petition should be “front loaded” with high quality evidence of a bona fide relationship. My “front loaded” petitions prepare the way so that your Fiancee will have an Easier interview.

The petition package is mailed to the United States Customs and Immigration Service.

USCIS takes about 4 to 5 months to review and approve.

When finished, USCIS hands the case over to the US State Department’s National Visa Center.

Fiance visa applications are held only briefly at NVC, just long enough for NVC just long enough for NVC to assign a Kingston case number and forward your file via diplomatic pouch to Jamaica.

Once her petition arrives in Jamaica, the consulate will contact your fiancee advising when they have scheduled her interview.

Two weeks before her interview date she undergoes a medical exam at one of the three approved clinics in Kingston or Montego Bay.

Finally she attends the visa interview at the consulate in Kingston, to demonstrate she is of good moral character and the engagement is Bona fide.

A week later a courier delivers her visa, and then she can join you in the USA.

I make the process sound simple. But its not. It is easy to make rookie mistakes that can derail the entire process.
