Question about Country on I-129F

15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

I'm new, this is my very first post so I am really sorry if it's been asked before. I'm just trying to get the form filled out correctly and this has been bugging me ever since I first started looking over the forms.

My fiance is from England, but in the spot where it says (State or Country) or just "Country of Citizenship", do I put England or do I put United Kingdom?

In 2 of the spaces, "United Kingdom" doesn't fit and leaves that little black "+" icon in the corner...so I'm just confused.

Any help would be appreciated!

I've been following the example form on this site (which I must say - VJ is like a godsend!, my stress level has gone down sooo much since signing up and reading everyone's experiences) and another thing I was wondering about is the thing where it asks if your fiance is currently in the US, they arrived as: etc...

would I put N/A? or would I write that he is not in the US at this time...

xoxo

Sarah

To be pedantic UK isn't a country it is a union of countries. The country of residence in this case is England.

Not of course that the yanks at the Embassy, NVC or elsewhere would know the difference :o

I put "Scotland (United Kingdom)" on all of mine, and then Iain my fiance put either "Scotland" or "UK" invariably in different spaces so it was like omg noob -_- Get so paranoid about this stupid stuff like they can't figure out what UK stands for xD

Going home to my mom's where I have an actual mailbox this weekend so hopefully there'll be an NOA1 or a nice juicy RFE waiting for me :D

lol that was what I thought, which is what caused me to ask :wacko:

He is a British citizen (that's what UK passports say for nationality) who lives in England.

UK or England I would think are both acceptable answers to put on the form.

In view of what Krikit has said UK seems to be what they want.

Thanks!

Totally unrelated - my fiance wants to know this, so if you know the answer that would be awesome!

One of the required shots he has to get is for Chicken Pox and it says that is unavailable in the UK. Is this necessary for getting approved or since it's not available in the UK does it not matter? He's just trying to get an idea of how much money he's gonna need for it all.

One of the shots I needed wasn't available in the UK so in fact the London Embassy doesn't require it.

Mine was a visa via marriage and I got a 10 year green card straight off. I think in your circumstance he will not be required to have the shot in the UK, but I think he might when he adjusts his status in the USA.

Tell him to get the shots at his own doctors, cheaper than having the Embassy doctors do it.

Is the vaccine still worth it if you've had chicken pox? I can't think of anyone my age who hasn't had it!

Re. The original question - I never know what to put, either. I usually put England if I can't fit United Kingdom on the form, and I usually put down British for nationality. It's all so confusing. :wacko:

I was always under the impression that once you have had chicken pox you as good as covered. However since being here I've heard this is not so and that after a time the protection reduces and you do benefit from having the vaccine.

for chicken pox...go to your own GP and ask for blood test showing presence of varicella (chicken pox bug) antibodies. If they are in your blood you don't need vaccination. You get the antibodies from having either chickpox or shingles. You GP should do the free.
