I-129F form question about fiance's I-95

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: South Africa

Hello there!

I'm new around here, but I am a U.S. citizen with a South African fiance. Our situation is unique - I live in California and he works on a cruise ship out of Los Angeles and we see each other once a week when his ship docks.

I am filling out the I-129F form and it asks for his "Arrival/Departure Record (I-94) Number, "Date of Arrival" and then "Date authorized stay expired, or will expire as shown on I-94 or I-95."

He has an I-95, not an I-94, so we don't think this question applies to my fiance, but then it mentions the I-95 expiration date. His I-95 does not have an expiration date listed.


Thanks so much!

Our story

Renier and I met while working on a cruise ship for Holland America Line. He was a photographer and I was an assistant cruise director ("social host"). He is from Johannesburg, South Africa and I am from Los Angeles, California. We met on July 15, 2005 and worked together for four and a half months, until we both left for home in December. He came to the United States on January 14, 2006 to work on the Carnival Pride, which docks in Long Beach every Sunday. This way, we are able to see each other every single week without him having to get his B-2 visa. Renier proposed to me on March 26, 2006, and I SAID YES! So, we are in the process of applying for his K-1 Fiance visa and we are having our wedding on May 19, 2007!
