I am just trying to get my head around the children of the my fiance who is in the process of her K-1 application. She has 3 children (16, 11, and 8). We will get the 16 year old her own passport which, when granted, her visa will be attached to. Should we also get the other under 16 year olds passports? Or do they travel with their birth certificates and use their K-2 visas for entry into the USA with their mother?

Do I fill out forms d230 for each one? I assume yes.

Do I fill out forms 156 for each one and include picture to it?

Thanks for your help all in advance.

As a side note, my fiance is coming from Brazil if this matters.

Thank you,

CopaKid

Hi!!!

I do have two children, they are 8 and 5 years old, they are going through the process with me (they are my husband's stepchildren) and yes, they have passports! Their visa will be attached to their own passports, I even had to send to the NVC a copy of their passport's biographic data page. Each one will need a form too!

Now related to the form 156 I can't really tell you...sorry, my process is the CR-1, but I would think that yes they will need one for each of them too!

Good luck!

I came to USA with K1 visa and with 3 kids (at the time 13, 9 and 7) and all of them needed their own valid passport, and yes everyone will need one 156.

If you have more doubts, please, just let us know.

Good Luck

Thanks for the reply. Do they need their passports when they apply for their visas or can they apply for their passports after the visa process and just affix the visa in the passport prior to travel?

Depends on Brazilian law regarding passports, if young children. If they CAN get their own passports as they do here, then YES they need them. If they CAN NOT get their own passports than you need to do wahtever is required by Brazil. In Ukraine that meant our older son had his own passport and the younger one was added to Alla's passport. That is how it is done there.

ALL applicants need to complete ALL forms and pay ALL fees, medical exam, etc. the same as the K-1. Think "K-1 times 4"

They need it to apply for the visa. At the interview you will turn over their passports to the consualte and some time later (usually within a week) the consulate returns them to you with the visas inside.
