I was carefully reading “Step-by-Step Guide on How to File for a K-1 Visa for your Foreign Fiance(e)” which is a great source of information and answers many questions.

Under ”Assembling the I-129F Package: Checklist” it says:

“Be sure to make four copies of the completed "Biographic Information" page (G-325A form) to submit with the package”

My question is where does the requirement to submit four copies of each G-325 form come from? This is first time I hear about it. Is it a true requirement?

And I have another question. My certificate of citizenship was obtained through naturalization and has no information on the back side. It is a requirement to submit the copies of both sides of the certificate. In my case the back side will just be the blank page. Should I just write on this page that it is back side of my certificate? Or what would you do?

Thank you very much for your responses and great help!!!

Yes, photocopy the blank page and write on it what it is. There's no point in risking a RFE for a blank sheet of paper.

The G-325 used to automatically print out 4 pages, I'm not sure if this is the case now, but most people are still sending 4 copies of it (original signature on each.)

I just tried to check what the latest form on the USCIS website was, but for some reason it's coming up with "File Error - Couldn't open file". Is anyone having this problem? It's done this the past week on my home and work computers.

Up until recently, the G-325 was a four page document. Each page was identical, but apparently distributed to different places once received by USCIS. The new form is only a single page. USCIS has still not made it clear whether they expect one copy or four copies of the new form. As of August 23rd, VJ is still officially recommending that you include four copies until clear guidance is issued by USCIS regarding this.

Copy both sides of the certificate, even if the back side is blank. This shows them that there is, in fact, nothing on the back. I wrote on every photocopied document precisely what it was a photocopy of. To be more precise, I scanned the documents, placed the scanned images in Microsoft Word documents, slightly reduced to provide a margin, and typed into the margins to describe what the document was.

The G-325a WAS a four part form until earlier this year. It has been changed to a two part form. If you download the form on the internet it will be TWO pages, that is all you currently need. There was some confusion about this for a time and many people still say to send four copies. USCIS will throw away two of them and no harm is done. Refer to the pinned topic at the top of the page as I have just recently covered this topic with the director of the VSC.

I don't think this is/was true. I"ll have to look but I think there is a unique different number or letter at the bottom of each page. Kind of like a mult-part form where the top is Orginator, the next File, etc.

The current G-325A form is NOT two-page document. It has only one page that needs to be filled out. Second page is instructions unless I see it wrong. It looks like I need to submit one page for me and one for my fiancé unless I misunderstood instructions for I-129F.

I'm pretty sure he was including the instructions as page one of the "two page document". One page is the instructions, the other page is the form you need to complete.

The only difference between the forms was a small notation on the lower left corner that indicated which department or division that copy of the form was sent to. Pages 2 through 4 also had a page number in the lower right corner. Otherwise, they were identical.

The G-325a WAS a four part form until earlier this year. It has been changed to a two part form. If you download the form on the internet it will be TWO pages, that is all you currently need.

Ok, if you want to get technical... The previous form was a FIVE pages, and the new form is TWO pages. The last page was and still is instructions. I don't think USCIS ever intended you to send the instruction page back to them. The new form only has only one page with any fields that need to be filled in.
