K1 Visa Annotation

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Finally my fiancee has been issued a K! Visa, valid from Feb 9 , 2006 to Aug 7, 2006. She wants to settle her affair and has plan to come to the states at the beginning of April. But there is a notation on her visa stating "Petition valid till March 21, 2006 and my name as the petitioner".

Is this something to worry about? Does it means that she has to arrive in the States before March 21 even though her visa is valid till Aug 7? Has anybody seen this type of an annotation on any K1 Visa?

i agree with canuck

agreed with both above...

your I-129F petition is valid for 4 months after it's approved, that's the date the actual I-129F expires. But the Visa is good for 6 months after issuance.

Just like the Visa can expire after you get to the USA but before the 90 day marriage. You'll still be allowed to adjust status even with an expired visa, as long as you married within 90 days.

Why they track that on the actaul visa, I have no idea, but they did it with the my first K1 as well. Your name on the Visa is actaully needed. When you get married, your marriage certificate plus the expired K1 plus an AOS NOA1 proves you're still lawfully present as long as the name on the K1 matches who you married. If that makes any sense. Basically the marriage certificate has to match both names on the visa to be lawful. If a K1 visa marries someone else they aren't legally in the USA.
