Anyone could help!


I am the petitioner, US Citizen and Active Army soldier. My fiancé currently lives in Ecuador (for shortly over a year now) holds Ecuadorian naturalization and citizenship. But she was born in Venezuela.

Late July I submitted the K1 visa packet along with copies of both her birth certificates, background checks, and letters of single. All the documents from Ecuador were stamped and legalized, but due to the issues and processing times in Venezuela - it has become a true headache to get the documents legalized.

My question is, when they send the letter with documents that are necessary, would she need original/legalized Venezuelan documents? i.e. Venezuelan birth certificate, if she has one from Ecuador?


Thank you!

Contact the Immigrant Visa Unit of the U.S. consulate in Guayaquil to ask what they'll expect and how they recommend that you handle the situation.  They've probably dealt with this before.  Let us know what they say.
