Fiancee Interview (K1 visa)

Hi everyone, I live in the U.S. and my fiancee in Venezuela. I read on this website that once I receive my NOA2, I must send a copy of my ENTIRE I-129F package to my fiancee so she can bring this to the interview. Is this really necessary, does she need all the same forms again (G-325, I-129 application, etc)?? I just thought I needed to send her the documentary proof of our relationship (pics, letters, phone bills, etc). Can someone clear this up for me? Also, is there a fee for the fiancee interview? If so, how much is it? Thanks again.

Even if it's not really required (not in the instructions we get from the consulate in packets 3 and 4), they have been useful to me - the copies, I mean. They had lost one of the forms I had sent them and if I didn't have the copies of the forms, I wouldn't have been able to fill out the form on the spot. This is just an example of why it's good to bring them.


I only offer advice - not even legal. Just the plain and simple kind.

Just because it was included with you I129f petition does not necessarily preclude the CO from asking to see a particular document again. That is another reason why it is good for you fiance to have a complete set of what was origianally submitted. Most often it will be overkill and you will never be requested to produce anything but it is better to be 150% prepared than to arrive and have the visa delayed because of a seemingly innocuous request.


YMMV

I didn't make copies of the I129F or any of the other forms. The instructions on the forms just said to make copies of originals. So I'm going to fill them out again and hope that they accept them if they ask for them.

I'm praying that they don't ask for them.

Your primary responsibility is to prepare the financial responsibility form and attach the documents necessary such as tax returns. You will need to have this form notarized. If you are self employed the consulate will need you to send them two years of bank statements showing that the deposits into your account are sufficient to reflect the income from your business. This you will send to your fiancee before his/her interview.

Your fiancee's responsible for filing out packets 3 & 4, obtaining a medical exam, additional passport style photos and police reports before he/she attends the interview at the U.S. embassy.

The additional copies are helpful but should not be necessary. Review the guides again about the K-1 process.

Oh, congratulations and good luck.

She'd also benefit from reading the information on the forms sent to USCIS in case they ask questions about the content. For example, about your current and previous jobs, or where you've lived and things like that.

lou,

You do not need to send a copy of the entire I-129f submission. You should send the originals of any photocopied supporting documents that were submitted since the consular officer may spot check some of them, as several posters have written. Mew correctly identifies the reason behind the recommendation that you send the entire package - so that your fiancee will know exactly what information you submitted and will not contradict anything during the interview (if she does her homework).

The processing fee for a non-immigrant visa application is US$100, usually paid in the local currency.

it's not required to send a copy of the entire I-129f. i did so my fiance could be familar with what's in it. here's a link to the US Embassy in Caracas on the fiance visa.
