Hi All,

I have been filling out form I-485 relating to AOS for my fiancée. Of particular note, on part 3 - Processing Information there is an area that is asking me for "Nonimmigrant Visa Number".

I am looking at my fiancee's K1 Visa, and am not able to find this information.

I see a "Control Number", "Passport Number", as well as "Annotation" right underneath where it says "Petitioner" and underneath there is a "A #"! is the "A #" an Alien number"! I am guessing not.

Can someone help me find the "Nonimmigrant Visa Number"?

Relating to changing the name, my fiancée wants to keep her last name even after marriage. Would that cause any issues after in the long run if both of us have different last names?

Your suggestions and help will be very helpful.

Nishi

Get used to call her wife from now on body.. lol

the visa number should be found on the stamped visa given to her by the embassy. Should be a 14 digit number +/-

no problems will be generated if she keeps her name..

ps, change your profile from k-1 to AOS..

Hi :)

The Non-immigrant visa number is the number in red, not the control number.

And you're right, the number beginning with A is not an alien number ;)

As far as the name change goes, it should not have an effect on your case as not every bride decides to change her name.

She can always change it whenever she pleases.

Good luck! :)

Please note that the visa number is NOT the control number.

The control number begins with the year; the visa number can be found at the bottom in red.

Please ignore the other replies as it will just confuse you. Each one is wrong in one way or the other.

The A# under annotation IS the alien number. Given you said it says "petitioner" before it, it appears that the Petitioner (the USC) is a naturalisated USC and this is THEIR A number. Not everyone has the A number written there. I have MY A number on my visa (I'm a non-USC) under annotation and several other people do also. The best way to confirm who's alien number this is, is to check the NOA2 from the K1 petition above the beneficiaries name will be their A number, and I assume the same applies if the petitioner is a naturalised USC (example in my AOS thread in my signature) above their name on the NOA2.

The non-immigrant number is the number in red on your visa. Example also in the AOS thread in my signature.

Regarding name change, or not changing name, no it won't be an issue. Lots of people choose to do this due to schooling reasons (and their qualifications being in their married name) and several other personal reasons. Not a problem. It's a personal choice.

Thanks "Vanessa&Tony" for your reply.

I have taken the appropriate alien #'s for both my wife and I. As well as the nonimmigrant visa number, which I was able to find in red at the bottom of the visa.

Thanks,

Nishi

"YoungLove" - The number is eight digits not 14.

"DoneWaiting" stated that it was 14 digits, not me :P

But "Vanessa&Tony" explained it well. Good luck on your journey :)
