Immigration asks for a Tagalog written letter

My fiance's parents are the ones receiving the notices from the immigration since my fiance is out to training for his deployment in iraq. Parents talked to me and said there are additional requirements needed. There are three actually that the immigration were asking but this one is kind of confusing me...they ask me to submit a Tagalog written letter or email that i wrote to my fiance. The immigration questions how me and my fiance understand our comunication when he speaks english and i speak Filipino/Tagalog. Of course i intended to speak and write english to him, even though he is filipino by blood still he does not understand straight tagalog. I never wrote my fiance a tagalog letter and that's what the immigration wanted me to submit to them. Am i going to make a Tagalog letter to my fiance? and send it over to his parents and parents will forward all the additional requirements to the immigration. I hope i will get any input.

Thank you very much.

Hi

I think this might be a slight error or miscommunication.

Although there is requirements to proove relationships such as letters, emails, cards, phone records etc. There cannot be any proof that you communicate in a specific language.

If you havent submitted any letters/emails, just submit the ones you have in English. If you have submitted them and they are specifically requiring you to submit more of them in another language, i would simply write a letter that "we communicate in english only".

Do you have any emails where you guys maybe used SOME tagalog? Like maybe the words he does know. Perhaps submitting these emails with a note that states you are fluent in english and he isnt - so you MOSTLY converse in english.

hope this helps

Thank you sam. I hope they will accept that. Are they going to accept a video clip too? it has me and my fiance celebrating the holiday together, although they are not asking but they were asking of a photo that is time stamped (proof that we met within last year) and the photos my fiance have submitted were digital photos and it didn't have a time stamped on it like normal photos have.

thanks again

cee

You know it wouldnt hurt to submit the video, but im not sure if they are going to accept it. BUT - it should be ok. People submit videos of thier weddings as marriage proof. so to use video to proove meeting should be just as fine. if i were you i might post a second message on videos. someone else might have already bumped into this issue themselves and know the answer.

Hi there! I am filipina too and i wonder why they asked tagalog letters. Maybe its bec. your fiance is filipino too. On my own point of view. guess it is better to write a letter saying that u communicate through english only since ur fiance dont understand tagalog so well and it would be useless to write in tagalog letter then. The docs we forward to for proof of meeting and relationships are.. Photocopy of his passport, photocopy of electronic ticket, photocopy of receipt of hotel, snail mails, emails, chat conversations and pictures together. If you missed something. then guess it would be best to include it then. :)
