12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm just putting the final touches on our I-129F filing packet and was curious what everyone else has sent in as proof of having met in person. I'm going to be including the following and want to make sure this enough.

Airline receipt

Hotel receipt

Condo receipt

Boarding passes

Miscellaneous receipts from Manila

And of course; 4 different photos of us together.

Any and all feedback would be appreciated. Thank you..smile.png

Don't forget copies of the passport entry/exit stamps. And from what I've heard, make sure to label and date your photos on the back (names, location, full date). I also included a bank statement showing ATM withdrawals and a credit card statement showing purchases made in my fiance's town.

My proof for the I-129F, which was accepted without problem, was as follows:

Copies of every page of my passport (I had three pages of residency/working visas in Mongolia)

One picture of me together with my fiancee, her brothers, and her son.

Airline itinerary matching the exit and entry stamps on the visas.

That got me approval. I have a lot more that I've sent off to Mongolia for my fiancee to submit before the interview, though.


What would Xenu do?

Thank you but do I really need to include copies of all the pages of my passport? I only have an immigration stamp on one page.

You only need copy after all the passport pages to prove US citizenship.

For proof of meeting in the last 2 years we put in the page with the passport stamps, 6 pics of us and boarding passes. We got approved without a RFE.

Good luck

On my RFE it said copy of the photo portion as well as copy of the entry and departure stamp page or pages. I am also including copies of receipts, 30 plus photos in one I am presenting a trophy at a beauty pagent with the location and date of the pagent on the back of the stage, the rest are photos of myself and my fiance. Further copies of my bank statements with activity from different locations in the Philippines as well as boarding passes, e-ticket copies. I am also including a few pages of chat logs to show continuing relationship even though that was not requested.

No, you don't even though some people do. We only included copies of our passport bio pages and the pages with the entry stamps (if you have traveled on a visa, it would be smart to also include the visa pages) and got approved without an RFE.

Boarding passes In both directions, matching pages of passports with stamps (plus the bio page) and photos of us together. Suitable photos of us together with date and locations written on back.

These guys must see lots of pictures of couples standing in front of very identifiable monuments. From memory we included the Golden Gate Bridge, Eiffel Tower, Washington Monument and probably Big Ben :-)

Best of luck.
