Only have about 8 photos

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi. I only have about a total of 8 photos of me and my fiancé together (that were taken at different times, different locations). I was only planning on putting two or three in my 1-129F petition so I can have the other ones as new evidence for the interview stage. I have some other proofs that I am submitting (other than itinerary and passport stamps and primary evidences that I am including) such as transcripts showing that I was studying abroad in Costa Rica and completed an internship there, which is when I met my fiancé. Would you all say I should submit all the photos I can from the beginning, or should I submit some and save the rest?

Include the pictures you have now with the K-1 petition as proof of meeting outside the US within the last two years. The proof needed for the visa interview is different. One thing you will need to prove is a continuing relationship, between the time you last met, before filing the petition, and the date of the interview. All the materials you submit for the petition, will be available to the interviewer at the consular (visa) stage.

We used 6 photos for our K1 package, which is a reasonable ammount, there's no real need to submit loads of photos as it isn't considered a top form of evidence. Plus, the person reviewing your case will only need to see a "picture of the smiling couple" so many times before it becomes unnecessary. Besides, some couples/people just don't take photos as often as others.
