I-129f item 20

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am applying for the K-1 Visa. The situation here is my fiance is a People's Republic of China citizen (PRC) but on a student visa studying in Sydney.

What should I put under the i-129f item 20, for where she will be applying for her K1 visa? Should it be at an American Embassy back in China, or can she do it in Sydney?

Thanks

~Louis

hi there,

I'm afraid she will have to return to China anyway, she will need to get a certificate from the police at a later stage - need that for the interview :yes: - and after doing some online reading, I haven't found anything saying she can apply for her K-1 from abroad... Plus, if you file your petition now, that puts you somewhere around October for the interview - will she still be in Australia? And which address are you putting on your I-129F and G-325A for her? The Chinese one or the Australian one? :wacko: Frankly speaking, I'd advise you to email American Embassy in China and ask them if you don't get any comprehensible reply here - they are usually helpful.... if they ever reply :whistle:

a quick quote from the I-129F, q.20

NOTE: (Designation of a U.S. embassy or consulate outside the country of your fiancé(e)'s last residence does not guarantee

acceptance for processing by that foreign post. Acceptance is at the discretion of the designated embassy or consulate.)

No such thing as an American Embassy. There are US (short for United States) Embassies.

If she'll be in Australia during the time frame the interview will take place, put Sydney. Yes, she'll need a police report from China but a family member can secure anything she needs from China, including the certificate of unmarried status and birth certificate. Make sure the official Chinese documents are Notarial translations obtained through the Gong Zheng Chu.

Whether Australia or China, she will interview at a US Consulate, not an Embassy. Sydney and Guangzhou are Consulates. Embassies are always in Capital cities, so Canberra and Beijing etc.
