    Where you get married at is not relative. Marrige is marriage. Proper documents should be ready for immigration to review.

    k-3 process will be normal procedure, in alien's home country, canada.

    E.O. 12958: N/A
    TAGS: CVIS, KSEP
    SUBJECT: K3 VISA IMPLEMENTATION

    REF: A) STATE 057338 B) FEDERAL REGISTER VOL. 66, NO.
    174, SEPTEMBER 7, 2001

    2. Summary: INS published a rule in the Federal Register
    to implement the new K3 NIV. To obtain K3 status for an
    alien spouse, a U.S. citizen petitioner must first file an
    I-129F petition with INS in the United States.
    Confirmation of INS approval of the I-129F petition is
    required before a K3 may be issued and will be relayed to
    overseas posts by NVC. K3 processing overseas will
    closely mirror that of K1 fiance processing. iIf the
    marriage occurred abroad, a K3 must be issued in the
    country where the marriage took place.


    Mobilealien, you can try.. I've heard that couples in your situation go for an immigrant visa instead. Anyway, there have been reports lately that I-130 and I-129 are being approved the same day, and then NVC just canceles I-129 (for K3)... and processes I-130 (for CR/IR-1). There was also a memo in that regard a year ago or so... If USCIS turns I-130 around fast enough, there is no need for I-129.

    actually no, this is what most of the ppl think. people think that the i-129f is faster to be processed while its pending with the uscis but this is wrong. sometimes the i-130 even gets approved first,but once its at the NVC the the i-129f is way way faster, the i-130 will take 4-5 moths to be processed at the NVC and sometimes even longer but the i-129f will be process in 2-3 weeks only and sometimes even less. the i-129f is faster only in this stage . and you can request for the i-129f to be processed, they cann't just cancel

    Oh so sorry Mobile

    Thanks aneri. I did forget that "minor detail".

    However, Mobile can guarantee canada by marrying spouse in canada in a civil ceremony. Then have the other wedding/celebration in India as she is canadian citizen and free to travel.

    4now, we have already got married in India 2 years back. In my us citizenship appln and wife's us tax id number doc our date of marriage (India) is mentioned. We cannot get married again in Canada.

    Thanks! everyone for your advice and inputs
