Hi there... I have a stupid question for a stupid mistake...

What happens if the sealed package that came along with the fiancee' visa was opened? I checked around the web but all I could find is the consequences of trying to enter the U.S.

I guess what I need to know is, what should my Fiancee' do and what kind of delay should we expect from this?

Thank you so much for taking the time to read, and hopefuly respond...

Contact the embassy, have them reseal it. Don't enter the US until this has been done.

Congrats on obtaining your visa, you will have to have it returned to the embassy to be resealed, it has to be sealed when given in at your poe.

I know it sounds stupid, but I had the same situation :whistle: The package came when I wasn't home, so my mom took it, and you know how curious mothers can be... so she opened everything they brought, looking for passport to check whether I got visa or not. When I came home I was shocked. Thank God she didn't tear it apart!!! I sealed it back with the help of... tape. In the US they said nothing to me, maybe I was lucky :P Good luck!!!

If you have time, the best thing to do is take it back and have them reseal it. The POE sees lots of these mistakes and just overlooks them. I guess it's just a lot easier for them to pretend they opened it than to send people back home.

If this mistake was done in India, the consulate ask you to get a new sealed envelope from the embassy after you pay the Immigrant Visa fee, once again! The exact language of Consulate-specific document (http://travel.state.gov/pdf/supplements/BMB-SUP-ENGL-0001-0804.pdf) is as follows:

If the sealed envelope is opened prior to arrival in the United States, the immigrant visa fee of $400 must be paid again at the American Consulate, Mumbai and new sealed envelope will be handed over to the applicant.

Hope your embassy does not charge you for issuing a new envelope.

Regards,

Sanjiv Patel
