DS-160 question - Help

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am trying to fill out my DS-160, one of the questions asked is:

"Has anyone ever filed an immigrant petition on your behalf with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services?"

Do I answer yes or no? And if yes, can anyone help for what to put when it asks you to explain? Do I just put that my fiancé has filed form I-129F for a K1 fiancé visa?

I should mention that I have never applied for any US visa or had any petition filed for me before, apart from the I-129F form that my fiancé filled out in April to start this K1 process. Is the I-129F considered an immigrant petition?

Please help, thanks in advance.

I put no... I used the example form as a guide.

I think to USCIS the I129-F is a non-immigrant petition, but once the consulate has it at least where I am, they consider it immigrant.... Very confusing.

Put "no". The K1 visa is a non-immigrant visa (in reality a kind of hybrid visa), but allows you to enter with an immigrant intent. This is why you have to apply to adjust your status, and you're not automatically assigned LPR status and a Green Card upon entry via the K1.

I used RapidVisa for my petition; a paperwork service. A K1 is $375.00 to use their hassle-free online application system.
