Can someone please provide an example for Declaration of how you met in person in the last two years regarding question 18 of the I-129F.?

Is boarding passes necessary OR the travel stamps on passport could be sufficient if you dont have boarding passes.?

Welcome to the forum.

Keep it short and sweet. The size of the reply box is indicative of the length of the sufficient response.

Provide as much evidence as you can: flight tickets, train tickets, hotel receipts, credit card receipts, pictures together, etc. The more the better. My fiance and I wrote an essay on how we met for the first time and how we met in person (we met online so we had to meet in person). Talk about how you both got along. Basically you have to prove that you are not trying to sneak into the US using the K1 visa.

Do not write a lot on question 18. They are not asking to read your entire story. I've heard a lot of stories where people write a lot and then the fiance has a much tougher interview since the interviewer had a lot of their information already. Keep it short and sweet.

This is what I wrote.

My fiance and I met at my parent's home in (city and country) in (date) while I was on vacation and dated until I returned to USA in (date). Then in (date), he befriended me on Facebook, we got back in touch and we started dating on (date) which lead to my trip to Chile, (dates) and then again (dates).

This is the evidence I sent.

o Itineraries

o Passport Stamps

o Photos of us together

o Passport stamps (my families passport stamps when they came to chile to met my fiance)

o Skype Calls

o Facebook Messages

o Mail - cards and letters written to each other

If you have boarding passing or hotel receipts send those too.

Two sentences are all that is needed. Send copies of passport stamps, boarding passes, hotel or restaurant receipts, photos of you two showing you in the place where you met in person (write names and dates on back), plus any other evidence to prove you two met in person as you state you did.

The Guides state very well what evidence is necessary to bolster your claim of relationship:

"Documentary Proof of Having Met in Person in the Past Two Years and an Ongoing Relationship:

Use as many of these items are possible. There is no minimum, but the more you can provide the less likely you are that you will receive an RFE. Additionally, please note that providing proof of your ongoing and genuine relationship in this package may benefit you by allowing the consulate to have access to this information prior to them formally contacting the non US Citizen fiance. Many high risk consulates approach cases with a skeptical eye and providing this information early on in the original I-129F package will help them in their preliminary review of your case.

1. Copies of all airline boarding passes, train passes, itineraries, hotel receipts, passport stamps (make sure you can read the dates on the stamps), and other documentary evidence that you have met within the last two years. You may want to highlight or place post-it notes indicating the dates and locations on the copies (to make the adjudication easier) for the person reviewing your file.

2. Color Photo's of you and your fiance(e) together. Make sure you write your names, date, and location on the back of every photo. Provide two to five photo's. If you only have a single copy of the photo, then make a color copy and send that. If it is a digital photo, have it printed at a company such as kodakgallery.com. You can also make duplicates of photo's at your local photo store (Walgreeens, CVS, etc). Place photo's in a plastic bag or photo sheet and label the sheet. Note that you may not receive originals of photo's back.

3. The following items will not typically show proof of having met in the last two years however will show proof of an ongoing relationship: Copies of land line and cell phone bills, appropriate letters and emails, stamps on the letters (to document the date they were sent), and other written documentary proof. Provide a reasonable amount; two to four of each type. Pick a range of dates up to and including the present. You can also include a copy of engagement ring receipt (this is something that is a big optional - do not worry if you do not have a ring yet!)"

Good luck on your visa journey.
