Evidence of domicile includes actions that in your circumstances would normally be expected of, or that would be characteristic of, any permanent resident.

The following may be considered as evidence of domicile:

* Filing and payment of US income tax

* A valid and current state driver's license.

* Valid state vehicle registration.

* Current state voter registration .

* Permanent employment or acceptance of future permanent employment.

* Ownership of residential real property in the USA.

* Other factors particular to your situation may be considered also, and should be documented.

I petitioned my then-fiancée using a K-1 visa, and we did not have to provide "Evidence of Domicile.

My guess regarding the "Evidence of Domicile" issue is that the other VJ petitioner may be applying for another type of visa, and not a K-1 visa. For example, a petitioner who applies for an IR-1 / CR-1 through Direct Consular Filing would need to provide "Evidence of Domicile."

However, I'm not sure if a normal IR-1 / CR-1 would require the same evidence. I don't know about this requirement for a K-3 visa either. But, neither the petitioner nor the beneficiary will need it for a K-1 visa.
