K1 Visa Information for Citizens of Bolivia


The U.S. citizen must initiate the petition for K visas with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office in the U.S. If approved, the USCIS will forward the petition to the National Visa Center, which will then forward the petition to the U.S. Embassy in La Paz. 


Once the Embassy receives the petition, the informational packets will be mailed to the beneficiary of the petition (visa applicant). Once all the necessary documentation is gathered (as detailed in the informational packets) the beneficiary (visa applicant) may then come to the U.S. Embassy in La Paz with all the proper documentation any Wednesday at 1:30 pm for the visa interview. A consular officer conducts an interview with the visa applicant to determine whether he/she is eligible for the visa. 


If all documents are in order and the applicant is found eligible, a visa will be issued. The applicant’s passport will remain with the Consular Section in order to place the visa in their passport. The applicant will pick up his/her passport with the visa at Window 5 at 4:30pm the same day of the interview. After receiving the K visa, the alien will have 6 months to travel to the U.S. where he or she will present his/her passport with the visas to the immigration officer at the port of entry to enter the United States.
