The time frame you have stated is what i saw for the K3 visa which is the Marriage visa . The official time frame for the K-1 which is the fiancee visa is 2-6 months . I may be wrong just wanted to make sure there is no confusion in the difference b/w K-1 and K-3

  Officially, the waiting period before a decision is reached depends on a lot of factors relating to the circumstances of the American citizen, and then that of the spouse ie, if there is a compelling reason for urgency that requires the (American) spouse to be united with her husband or his wife, then, the embassy can reach a decision as after 4 months time, in other cases, it might take up to 21 months period: therefore, the official time frame for a spousal visa to the United states is between 4 and 21 months.

  Bear in mind that more than 90% of spouse visa applicants get their decisions within the last 3 months of the time frame. which means, you'd be looking forward for a decision after 18 months of waiting: and yet, the age long waiting does not guarantee you the visa.

 This is a delay tactic that has proven to be effective in the Homeland Security method of testing marriages as most bogus ones don't usually survive such tests.

*Your wife must be in full time employment

*Must be residing in a property that can accommodate you (and her dependants if any)

*Must have adequate savings to sustain you for a considerable period of time

*Must not be a questionable character

*Must have evidence of regular correspondence with you

*Must have adequate knowledge of you and about you*

*Above all, both of you must apply wisdom with understanding to immigration rules.

Because the petition is approved by USCIS doesn't mean the consular officer in Nigeria will issue the visa. Nigeria has a high rate of K-1 visa refusal because of u know why.

K1 Visa

A K1 Fiancee Visa allows the foreign fiancee of a U.S. Citizen to enter the United States with the intentions of getting married within 90 days of entering the United States. K1 Visas are generally preferred (over the Marriage Visa and k3 spouse visa) as the visa of choice for engaged international couples as they are considered the easiest, quickest, and least expensive route.

K1 Visas generally take between 2-6 months from the time the I-129F Petition is filed at a USCIS Service Center to the day the K1 Visa is issued. First, the Petition is filed with the USCIS. Once approved, the Petition is sent to the overseas embassy for further processing, the fiancee interview and the eventual issuing of the K1 Visa.
