My wife Liah and I began collecting information for her K-1 visa at the beginning of 2013. I had been to see a local attorney first but I found that he did not have and experience with the process through the Manila Embassy, and he recommended I find someone else. The RapidVisa site had a lot of initial information and someone to chat with, so after searching the web for a service, I found myself feeling most comfortable with RapidVisa.
I appreciated having someone to contact when I was confused with the process or with the mountain of forms and other documents. I found the advice of their staff to be accurate and timely
Everything went smoothly for us, filing the petition in late March and receiving the Visa in hand in late September. We have laughed that at the time it seemed like the process was taking forever and that the US government was inventing new forms to fill out faster than we could complete them, but the truth is the process went pretty much as explained to us, and while it was a long time to wait, there was a lot of peace of mind because we knew what to expect. I have learned, by the way, that 3 – 5 working days and two weeks means about the same thing as far as the embassy is concerned, but everyone was courteous in the process and my wife (then-fiancee) really appreciated the chance to have someone review all of her documents before the interview.
RapidVisa’s services are, in my opinion, well worth the price. The system itself isn’t perfect, but we were well-pleased with the outcome! We look forward to completing the AOS with their help as well.
