Co-Sponsor Japan K1 Visa?

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! Our has was sent to the NVC on May 1st by the USCIS. We're hoping to get an interview ASAP.

I just found out my company may be going out of business due to a lawsuit that will be taking down many of our client base. As a result, my father wishes greatly to be my co-sponsor and help us out. I already have another job lined up that starts late August but I am not sure what my status will be by the time she has her interview. It looks like my company may have issues end of June, which I don't think she will have an interview until July I am assuming.

My fiancé is terrified to say the least and the thought of us working hard on our marriage for the past year being wiped away from something so stupid.

Is the Japanese embassy friendly to accepting co-sponsors for K-1 Fiance Visas?

As far as my research shows me, including other forums, co-sponsors are accepted.

So you should be fine as long as he meets the requirements for his household plus your fiancé.

We are just starting the K1 process.  My Fiance is in Hokkaido.   

 

How did things go for you?  What did you experience with the Embassy Interview etc?

 

Did the issue of your job ever come up?

 

I didnt fully understand because the I29 doesnt ask about income. etc

 

many thanks in advance.  JA

Income comes up in the interview with the form of I-134 affidavit of support and evidences, the petitioner shows they can support the beneficiary. 

It will come up at the interview cause for Japan it is one of the required documents.

I found this which explained the process:  https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/family-immigration/nonimmigrant-visa-for-a-fiance-k-1.html#ExternalPopup

 

It listed the steps and actions required. I am new to this website and new to the process.  I was searchng this forum to find other Japanese Fiancees who filed for K1 vise and i-129.  I am looking for average timelines although I know each case is seperate.

 

If anyone wants to help we appreciate it.

 

I am 50 and retired from the US Army with a pension (no other income, enrolled in college) I believe I make enough to support.

Fiancee is 40 and wanting to work. Might have savings to disclose and bring and has Japanese version of Social Security (qualifies for joint accrual or whatever its called)

 

Thanks in advance

 

 

Thank you for those files and links. I will look at them now.

Does the Japanese Government involved or review the applications?  Or is it just the US Embassy in Japan.

I just figured how to insert the quote.   Did the Japanese Government review the application or just the US Government Embassy?

I think you need to read the instructions and first search about K1 visa overall.

 

I-134 is reviewed by the US embassy in Japan. 

Your fiancé wanting to work is good, but it does not have anything to do with this process. Only the sponsor (and co-sponsors) income matter.

Thank you for the quick replies and information.  I have the basics down and am focusing on the main part of the i129. I am ready to turn it in next week.

 

Ive been looking at many timelines and it seems the process takes a lot longer than I read elsewhere.

My Brother also married a Japanese and their application to arrival to the US to get married took 5 months. started December 2016 and married May 2017.

This place has the most current information and right now it is taking longer due to backlog. I129f approval only takes 6-7 months at the moment. So currently those old timelines won't mean a thing .

Country does not affect the process of i129f.
