Former student: Need some advice

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I recently got engaged over Christmas and have now embarked upon the K-1 application journey with my fiancee. I am confident that I know all the forms that we need to complete the initial I-129F packet (thanks to this site and forum) but I did have a question about filling out the G-325a which I will detail below.

I was in the USA on a student visa from Aug 2005- Aug 2009 and as such I was hoping someone could give me some insight into the following:

1) Should I input the temporary SSN# I was issued to allow me to work on campus?

2) Should I include my on-campus employment under "Applicant's employment last five years" or just stick to what I have done in my home country (United Kingdom)?

3) Should I include my on-campus address under "Applicant's residence past five years" or only use my places of permanent residence in the UK?

Any help that can be offered in regards to these questions would be a big help and greatly appreciated.

Once you get an SSN it is for life . That is your number for always. They don't give temporary SSN. AS far as I know you should put all past employment and residence no matter where it was.

You SS# is yours for life, so yes put that on the form. Yes list your campus employment. As far as your address, perhaps someone with this situation could give you more guidance than I since I did not have this situation.

Yes to all three. Follow instructions literally. They want where you have lived for the past 5 years. You lived in the US for a part of the last 5 years.
