K3 Visa Processing Time

Post by mikem » Tue Aug 17, 2010 1:04 pm


A co-worker of mine was a refugee claimant to Canada from El Salvador, but her application was denied. She is married to a US citizen, but was in the US illegally at the time of the marriage.

Apparently she now has to return to El Salvador and wait for approval of a K3 visa before she can join her husband back in the US. She wants to know if there is a visa bulletin posting of some sort for K3, or a "typical" wait period for this type of visa? From what I can see, it depends on the consulate in El Salvador & USCIS backlogs, but I can't figure out approx. how long the wait would be.

Thanks for any help you all can provide.
