Maysville, KY asked in Immigration Law for Kentucky

Q: How will the break in diplomatic relations between the US and Venezuela affect my partner in getting his K1 visa?

My partner has had his interview for the K1 visa at the US embassy in Caracas. He only needs to submit his medical results along with his passport for the visa to be affixed. He is ready to submit those results but my concern is how will the rupture in diplomatic relations between the two countries affect him in getting the K1 visa. Will it have to be processed in a neighboring country?

A: If the U.S. embassy there closes, yes, he would have to process in a neighboring country and that would likely cause a significant delay. Otherwise, as long as the consulate is open, processing should continue as usual.
