Help: K1 for Japanese permanent resident fiancee with Chinese passport

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Can anyone please help?

My situation is a bit unique. Fiancee graduated from college from US and had to return to Japan as her visa expired. It was my fault for not propose earlier, we missed each other dearly, I honestly can not imagine not being around her. I proposed to her during my visit 2 weeks ago and she said yes. Now we just need to go though the steps of bringing her back home to US.

-------Now onto the unique situation we are facing------------------------------------

My Fiancee is Chinese that grew up in Japan and she lived in Japan for over 10 years with Japanese green card. However, she never did got naturalized even though the process would had been easy (I guess her family didn't felt the need).

Now how do we go with K1 process. Do we deal with US Consulate In Japan or US Consulate in China? She got virtually no ties in China. Instead of a straight forward process, this is becoming a nightmare before the process even starts.

I am a permanent resident of Japan too and processed my K-1 there. She can have her interview done in Japan or China, whichever is more comfortable for her. If she currently lives in Japan, I suggest you deal with Tokyo embassy.

It's a question of where she has legal residence (as you will provide on the I-129F), which is Japan. When your I-129F is approved it will be forwarded to the US Consulate in Japan which has jurisdiction over her residence. If she had lived for 6 months or more in China since attaining the age 16, be prepared to get a Police Certificate from China (and probably with English translation) when the time comes.

Good luck on your K-1 visa journey :)
