All,

my first post and i hope in the right area.

My fiance is asking me a lot of questions about documents what she will need when she enters in the USA . We will marry soon after she arrives .

For example what are the steps and what documents will she need to bring with her to the USA to make the process smooth???

She is living in Istanbul now and we want to make sure she brings everything when she comes.

Thanks in advance for any help.

A certified copy of her birth certificate will be required for adjustment of status. If she doesn't get a copy of the DS-3025 vaccination record from the panel physician at her medical then she should ask for a copy - it will help avoid having to redo the vaccinations after she arrives in the US.

She'll need her passport with K1 visa and the sealed package from the consulate in order to get a boarding pass to get on the plane. She'll fill out an I-94 on the plane. When she arrives in the US she'll hand in the package to the immigration officer, along with her passport and I-94. The immigration officer will stamp her passport, tear the stub from the bottom of the I-94 and stamp it and staple it to her passport. She'll need to submit copies of her passport, visa, and I-94 with the adjustment of status application.

Everything else can be obtained in the US.

Read the adjustment of status guides:

A PHOTOCOPY is sufficient. If the certificate isn't in english, you'll require a translation as well.

OP please read the AOS thread in my signature for a document list.
