K1 approved at local embassy but what now?

Hello!

Our K1 has been approved at local embassy and we are waiting for the passport to be sent to me.

Now, I am preparing for the AOS so that I have everything ready once I am in the USA.

I looked here:

http://www.visajourney.com/faq/k1k2visa-aos.html#6.1

But I don't understand what is meant by

4a. Copy of the non US Citizen Spouses K-1 or K-3 Visa from Passport

5. K-1 Visa Holders: Submit Copy of NOA2 "Approval" for I-129F **

Are these two things different, and what are they?

Also, what kinds of vaccination should I have? I want to get all of them NOW before going to the USA, and have the medical records done.

Finally, I have the I-134 accepted already at the embassy, so do I still need to have the I-864 for the AOS?

Thanks!!!!

The visa will be stamped/attached in the passport. http://www.visajourney.com/gallery/display...um=19&pos=1

The NOA2 is what you got when you were approved way back with USCIS http://www.visajourney.com/gallery/display...bum=4&pos=0

You should be able to find a list of vaccines required somewhere on your embassy website, they are age specific so you might not need all. Here's the link from the London Embassy however the requirements should be the same http://london.usembassy.gov/cons_new/visa/...ccinechart.html

I'm on my work computer so I don't have the exact link for the CDC.

Yes you need the I-864 for AOS

Many thanks! This helps immensely.

Now, I am reading about the wait times.

Help me out here: Are we saying that it might take around SIX MONTHS for me to get a green card (so I can work) from the time we get married and submit the AOS?????

Again, many thanks and your info much appreciated.

I assume you will be applying for the EAD (work permit) at the same time as AOS. You should get this within 90 days which will allow you to start working whilst waiting for the green card.
