No sorry. the "meeting within the last 2 years in person" requirement is very strict, and unless he has proof he physically cannot leave the USA, and you have had several tourist visas denied, there is no way this will be waived. His petition for you will be denied. Have him meet you, take lots of photos, get to know eachother, then re-file.

I noticed you asked this about the fiance visa in another thread.... you didnt meet in person and that is the requirement for the issuance of that visa... that you meet within the last 2 years in person before filing the forms.

Just as penguin said in the other thread:

So unless you have met in person or can prove a good reason why you didn;t , for example if he can't physically leave the usa and you have been denied tourist visas here to visit... then the answer is NO.. it will be denied.

Even if you meet now, the fact you already filed when you didnt meet would still be denied.

Meet in person, then refile.

No is the right answer......I wonder why would you guys not want to meet before you move here? That is really important. You both need to make sure in person about each other. this is also for safety issues. Please encourage your bf to meet with you.because they will not approve only 5 months and no meeting....

No, USCIS will not approve your petition. You have gotten the right answers and advice. USCIS will keep the filing fee, you will have to meet and then refile

Good luck

PS - unless you included VERY compelling reasons why you two did not meet, there is no chance your petition will be approved

My fiance and I didn't meet in person. After 5 months of communicating online he filed a petition for me (K1 visa). It is possible for the USICS to approve my fiance's petition?Please help.

No reason to file the petition without meeting in person. That is requirement #2 of the I-129F. Requirement #1 is that the petitioner be a US citizen. So your fiance has not done a good job of preparing for the visa process.

There is no refund of the money. So after you two do meet in person, then he can file the petition again and send the fee money again.

You both should study the forms and Guides here on VJ before moving forward. The information will help you a great deal. Also doing some reading in the Philippines regional forum can give you a lot of help.

Best of luck.

not very likely. It is required unless you can prove some kind of hardship.

Not only does USCIS require that you meet in person, I suggest doing so for the sake of your upcoming marriage. Things can be entirely different in person than they are online and that's a big step to take with someone you've never personally met. Just my two cents. Meet in person as soon as possible and keep everything from the trip. Boarding passes, hotel receipts, take pictures, etc.

Taking photos is good. Saving the boarding passes would be extra supporting PRIMARY evidence to go with the passport stamps. Photos are SECONDARY evidence of meeting in person.
