Will The Government Shutdown Delay The Next 90 Day Fiance Season?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you are aware of the turmoil the partial government shut down is causing this country. It has a long reaching effect on almost everyone.

Thousands of people are not working. Many have not received paychecks in almost 2 months.  Others work without pay.  Airport, national park, government building employees are all struggling.  And those who have found “love” on 90 Day Fiance may have a huge hurdle to overcome as well: the K1 visa process.

90 Day Fiance documents couples who want to bring their significant other to the United States.

For most, the hardest part of the journey has been finding a way to live with a person. Up to that point, they only communicated via FaceTime, phone calls and texts. Or, in the case of Eric Rosenbrook and Leida Margaretha, getting rid of any sign of your previous family, aka your kids, in order to make your new family happy.  However, another problem has arisen with the partial government shutdown.

According to an article from Page Sixthe partial government shutdown could “cause significant delays in the visa processing.” One insider explained, “It’s going to be a new challenge for reality producers looking to cast the upcoming seventh season.”

Currently, the new season is in the casting process. However, production is on hold since they have not found new cast members to film.

“The stories are contingent on a good cast,” the insider continued, ” [..] it’s harder to find available couples because it’s following people who have already been approved.”

If  Colt Johnson and Larissa Dos Santos Lima are what production consider a “good cast,” maybe a delay in the process is a good thing.

Hopefully, the government will resolve its issues and the partial shutdown will end for good.  People will be able to go back to work. 90 Day Fiance couples will get their K1 visas approved. Ultimately, we will still get our weekly dose of crazy.
