DS160 My fiance lost his immunization records (Do I put yes or no)?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

It is asking on the DS-160 if he has all his immunization records in accordance with US law. He probably does have most, if not all, of the necessary vaccinations, however he lost his records. We don't know what to do. He lives in Mexico, where records aren't in computer systems (he says) like here. Should we check yes or no? If you click no, it says, "Explain."

Thanks :)

P.S. It's taking me a couple weeks to finish this form, because I'm still gathering information. Is that ok? When do I need to turn it in by?

How much research have you done into this? All shots are completed at medical. He fills out the DS-160 not you, it states that clearly at the beginning. It just have to be finished by th interview, no timeframe. That being said, that form is at the time of interview...He would have medical by then so the answer is yes.

I've researched it a lot. It says that I am allowed to help him fill it out. I will then have him sign and submit it :)

And I know he's going to the medical exam. I just didn't know that we should put yes. I will put yes. Thanks.

Also does anyone know what to put for the "Has anyone ever filed an immigrant petition for you?" Would I say no? Because the K-1 is technically a non-immigrant petition from what I know.

The K-1 is a "hybrid" visa -- a nonimmigrant visa with immigrant intent. But that's irrelevant to your question.

If anyone before you has tried to help him to immigrate, say yes; otherwise, no.

Yea but he knows all that information about himself and would take him 20 minutes since it's his history. That's between you two though. Anyway as long as he's never had a petition completed in the past put no.

Sounds good, thanks. He's busy for the next week, so that's why I'm filling it out. It would actually take him much longer than it took me, since the questions are worded a little tricky for English language learners. Just saying.
