DOS Authorizes Consular Posts to Give K Visa Cases High Priority

On August 31, 2020, DOS updated its original notice for K visa applicants affected by COVID-19. In the updated notice, DOS announced that as consular operations resume, posts are authorized to give K visa cases high priority. Consular officers may revalidate the I-129 petition in four-month increments. For most cases impacted by suspension of visa services, it will not be necessary to file a new I-129 petition.
