      Well now you wait for it to go to the NVC then on to the embassy of chose. In the meantime get all your evidence together ie pictures, letters, engagement photos, phone bills, affadavit of support, bank records, tax records etc. And wait some more. Good Luck.

        There is a great website to following the progress of K-1 visas and there's a lot of information. The website is http://www.davehollis.com/k1/list.php

        It's really very useful. But to expand on the above answer:

        1) The approved petition is sent to the National Visa Center for a security clearance. Once the name is cleared the packet is sent to the embassy/consulate in your fiances' country. Each Embassy handles things a little different but, for the most part, they send out packet 3 to your fiance and when he responds (be sure to tell him/her not to send documents with the response) they will send packet 4 with the medical examination information and interview date.

        Other necessary documents:

        Passport
        Original birth certificate nd translations
        Divorce Certificates and translations
        Police Record Clearance
        Military Records
        Evidence of the relationship
        Affidavit of Support and backup documents

        Be certain that your fiance is getting all these documents together so the process will go much quicker.

        My petition was just approved last week as well. It's great to finally get some movement. Good luck.

          how much time National Visa Center will take for security clearance.
          And how much time it will take the packets to reach to my fiance' after that?

            It depends on varying factors.. The NVC has go thru FBI, ppl of middleeastern decent are taking longer I hear. The packet 3 comes from the embassy, again it depends on the embassy. Some, specifically mumbai, often say they've sent the packet but in reality they do not. This is from like 6 people i know going thru same embassy. You can download the forms from the packet 3 off embassy website, or you can have the fiance/spouse go pick up the packet 3 at the embassy info window.
