G-325A - Can't fit text into boxes at all!!

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Other Country: United Kingdom
Timeline

This G-325A form is ridiculous. Almost every box is too small to fit any information in. Even simple boxes that ask you to write a year - writing in "2008" appears to be too long and when you print it out it puts a big "+" symbol over the box making everything unreadable.

So far I have these symbols on the following boxes:

- Date, City and Country of Birth (If known)

- Applicant's residence last five years: City + Year From + Year To

- Applicant's employment last five years: Year From + Year To

Did the DHS even bother to fill this form in and test its usefulness before making it available to the public? As if this process isn't difficult enough already.

Any suggestions or help on this? Did anyone experience this at all? Adobe doesn't let you shrink the text size!!

Thanks

I don't know what else to tell you but my form works okay. On the birth date or date boxes, it has a dropped down calendar where you could just pick the appropriate date.

You can always attach extra sheet. Note the number of the form, the question, your answer, and sign and date it. Worked for me once I couldn't fit the address and city in full

I have 2 computers, and I notied USCIS forms work fine with the computer whose operating system is XP, but one with Vista (64 bit) has same problem with you. I tried with the PC I use at my office (XP operated machine) and confirmed it is fine. So, my recommendation is to try the different computer (at work or friend's) if yours is a visa operated machine.

In addition, even with XP computers, some spaces were too small. So, when printing the forms, I left those portions where my answers did not fit in and filled out with my hand writing.

Check for the latest version of Adobe Reader and adjust your fonts. Dates are not a problem, but the fields do accept a limited number of characters. Once you have the date thing fixed, any remaining spaces that are too short will need hand writing or a separate sheet. I have no problem using visa with the form.
