No fixed abode during application

Hello,

My fiancee and I both live in Hong Kong. We would like to start applying for the K1 visa now and would permanently relocate to the USA once it is ready.

However, we plan to spend the next four months travelling around Asia; i.e. we will not have a permanent residence.

We have friends in Hong Kong who can accept post for us.

Is this going to cause any problems with our application process?

Many thanks

Max

You can put your friends' mailing address on the I-129F petition and add their name to the "care of" field.

However, you'll need to put your residential addresses on the G-325A biographical form - one form for each of you, to be submitted with the petition.

Include a G-1145 e-notification form with your petition so that you're notified by mobile and email when it's been received and get a receipt number. Once you get your receipt number, set up a MyCaseStatus account and sign up for email and mobile alerts:

Note that your fiancee will need to be back in HK for the medical as well as the interview. Head over to the Asia: East and Pacific forum to find out how these are scheduled (each consulate is different):

Fantastic, thank you.

Does anyone have experience of filling in the G-325A without a current address? If it is not the recipient of any sort of postal mail, then would it be ok to just put the last address I lived at?

Thanks again

Max

I don't have personal experience, but I did find this thread (albeit, it's an older one):

http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/81624-g325a-address-question/

If you are travelling from X date to Y date and don't have a fixed abode, put that in the first line, because it's the truth. Then add the address you last lived at on the next line and so on. Alternatively, what is the address you are using for your official documentation, e.g., bank accounts, etc? Is that still going to be operational?

Alternatively, you might be able to email/call the visa unit in Hong Kong to ask their advice.

Thanks again landr.

I will be transferring bank accounts etc to my parents address (which is not in Hong Kong) until I have a permanent residence again.

I will contact the embassy here to double check.

Thanks

Max
