Copies of I-129F package

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I forgot to make a copy of my I-129F package that I submitted to the UCIS. I included some original copies of photographs and visa slips as part of my package. Will the original package be sent to the embassy after NOA2 and will I potentially be asked for furnish a copy of the package i sent it originally? Can I request a copy from UCIS if one is needed for the interview?

No, the original copy won't be needed for the interview, as far as I know. However, as the beneficiary, I found it helpful to have a copy for my own records.

If you are really worried you could prepare another 1-129F to keep as a reference.

You only need to make a copy of the I-129F package for your own records. This is in case you get an RFE you will know what you have originally sent, and also to help you prepare for the interview.

The embassy will receive the complete I-129F package you sent in originally.

Having a copy of the entire I-129f package is just a recommendation and definitely a good idea but NOT a requirement. The whole I-129f [unless they discard some unnecessary submitted evidence] will be forwarded to the consulate of your fiance.

IMO, the most important part of the I-129f which can be critical for your fiance's interview is your answer on Part 2, Item 34.a of the I-129f form itself. Some consulates do try catch for any inconsistency from the written details of your initial meeting and the beneficiary's response. I guess this can be easily remedied if you saved your filled-out I-129f on your PC?

For the rest of the I-129f package, a cover letter or checklist of what you have submitted would also help so your fiance will have an idea of the information the embassy has their hands on.

That's the circumstances of meeting, correct? So in the past there have been people who were asked how they met the USC and they compared that to the written statement to check for inconsistencies? Glad I copied everything (3 times lol) and saved it on my computer so we can be sure to go exactly from what we wrote! haha

Nice to see ya, sweets :D

Hey Meghan! Nice to see you here again! :) Yes, that's right. The details of how you two met is one of the most typically asked questions in an embassy interview. So it's always better to keep that info handy, especially in case one is a little forgetful or got a little nervous during the interview. :D

I learned both from business and from practicing law to never ever send out your only copy of anything. Will USCIS know you didn't keep a copy? No. The only document we were ever called on to produce a copy of is the NOA2, which you don't have yet, and we are at the stage of almost filing the AOS.

Definitely makes sense. And I know we could both produce the same story as what we wrote down even not looking at it again. But best to just go back & brush up on what we said. Glad I saw this! (:
