arrowFlu vaccination

How important is the flu vaccine for the AOS? I have a well filled in DS-3025 from my K-1 medical in august of this year, but it wasn't flu season then. I'll most likely file for AOS during winter in California - does this mean I need to go to a CS and then have the whole i-693 filled out for that one shot only?

Seems crazy to me coming from a country where only oldies (and other people with "weak health") get the flu shot.

So back in February/ March I had to send back my green card cause they issued me the wrong card (10yr card tho I should have had a 2yr...)
Did my biometrics in April and have no heard anything ever since. Anyone who knows how long it normally takes?! I know it is a loooong wait....

Just to be sure - I was given my work permit pretty much the same day as my green card was approved, assuming I don't have to worry about that work permit (since that is only issued for a year) since my green card was approved already?

 Hi all! On August 23rd USCIS approved our K1 visa application!  :joy:NVC recieved it on September 3rd, and now on September 8th it has left NVC and it's in transit!  :joy: 

However, as it's my time now to fulfill this really short journey for us (thank goodness) I do have a bunch of questions and I am not sure where else to get them. So please, if you have the answers, please help me with this!

When can I start applying for my papers? I.e. the police certificate, birth certificate etc?
When can I make my medical appointment?
Will I have to call the embassy to schedule my appointment, or will they call me?

What is the number I have to provide the embassy with? The number NVC gave us?
What proof is good to bring to the interview with an on-going relationship? I've got letters from his and mine parents, my best friend wrote a letter, I've got pics, chatlogs.

As I just recently graduated, what vaccination papers do I need to bring and is it required I take my old school vaccinations as they are fairly fresh?

As I have a denied B1/B2 visa (denied on not showing enough ties) will this be an issue?

Thank you all so much!  :joy:

I am a Swedish citizen living with a US-citizen in sweden and she is registered swedish resident. We are looking into moving to US as soon as possible and have been looking at a lot of different options.

Since my girlfriend has been studying here in Sweden she cannot be a sponsor and we have to use one of her family members in the US as a joint sponsor.

I have a job offer in the US and our biggest concern is that i would have to work as soon as possible once arriving in the US since she is going to study in the US (or use savings and be bored to death for 3 months).


So basically here is the options we have looked at:


K-1 visa, get married in US, apply for AOS and work permit. (90 days without being able to work in the US?). costs money


K-3 visa, get married in Sweden, apply for work permit. (90 days without being able to work in the US?). takes time, costs money


CR-1 visa, get married in Sweden, (get to work immediately?) takes time


optional but risky:

get married in sweden and go to US on ESTA and apply for AOS upon arrival?


Right now we are not sure which is the smartest way to go, especially since we only get one shot at it. If we get married here we can no longer apply for the K-1 visa and if the K-1 visa gets denied we cant really just get married and apply for CR-1 straight after... ive also read that K-3 is not really a viable option any more.

arrowConfirm address change after Green Card

I am not sure if this is the right place to post...


I have had my Green Card for some time now and we recently moved. Within the first few days I did an address change online (AR-11) and right after I got a confirmation that USCIS has received the address change. Will they ever confirm that they have actually changed the address? I haven't heard anything from them. My husband filled out his sponsor address change thing and sent it in the mail and he got a confirmation letter not long after. Is it normal to not hear from them after the address change?
