arrowK-1 visa Interview in Brazil. Documents needed?

Hi guys!

We have received our NOA2 and now I'm waiting for the documents to be sent to the US Consulate in Rio de Janeiro.

In order to get all the documents I'll need in time for the interview, I was wondering if any of you could provide me with a list of documents required for your interview in Rio.

Will they send me a list when they schedule my interview? Also, my fiance lives in the States. Is it ok to go to the interview by myself?

Thank you all!

arrowOverstayed in the past and now I need a waiver, anyone with similar experience?

Hello everyone!


I entered the US on a J1 visa in 2005. Stayed on that visa until 2007, then out of status until 2009. Left the country on my own.

I had two tourist visas denied ever since (2011 and 2014) and found out my ban to get a visa is 10 years.


I applied to a K1 with my fiance. Texas office, NOA1 in october.


Later on we learned about the waiver. There is not much info online.

Can anyone share experiences with it?


-When is the proper time to use the waiver?

-How long did it delay the process?

-What are my chances of my waiver being approved?


Thanks in advance!

Well, me and my wife have been living in Brazil for the past 5 years. On all the guides we read about the IR1/CR1 visas, it always talks about the us citizen filing this and that while being in the US. Is it a requirement? My wife (the US citizen) has a house of her own in the US, and she can move back to it at any time. Apparently we'll have to file everything through mail. The consulate here in brazil doesn't let you file for visas at the consulate anymore, except in specific cases.


I was wondering if we try to talk to them about our case, like how we're already 5 years together and she's pregnant atm so it would be terrible if she had to go back to the US alone, or if such services are reserved to cases worse then ours.


Also, about the interview, can she be there as well or do I have to go alone?




Ty so much in advance ;)

arrowSeveral Questions HELP!!! AOS + Travel + Joint Sponsor

If I need a joint sponsor for my husband's green card, what are the income requirements for a single joint sponsor? Is it different than two people? I have a friend who is single and lives alone and she has offered to help but we can only find this list:


Family Size of 2 $19,662

Family Size of 3 $24,737

Family Size of 4 $29,812

Family Size of 5 $34,887

Family Size of 6 $39,962

Family Size of 7 $45,037

Family Size of 8 $50,112

Add $5,075 for each additional person.


My husband came from Brazil on a K1 visa and his mom passed away on November 1. He was unable to attend her funeral. He has a large inheritence coming. Since he doesn't have it yet, he cannot use this to help get the green card can he? As of now our petition was put on hold until we find a joint sponsor.


His dad is alone and needs help with moving soon and we had hoped to go see him but it seems they also put the travel authorization on hold too. Is there a way to push the travel authorization through while we wait?

Hello guys,


My interview is next week and Im EXTREMELY anxious and I have some questions:


1. Is necessary to bring the NOA2? I know this is not on the list, but I'm concerned about they asking me for it;

2. Is it permitted to wear dress inside the Embassy? It's too hot in Rio de Janeiro to wear pants, but I dont wanna be banned :)


Thank you all :)
