Dear all,

My fiance and I are applying for a K-1 visa but both of us are living abroad. When we send our application materials to USCIS which need to be notarized, do they need to be notarized by a US notary (i.e. the American Embassy) or do they accept local notaries?

Thanks!

Nothing in the petition needs to be notarized. All a notary does is confirm you are the person who is signing a document.

Translations need to be certified as true and accurate by the person translating them (some embassies may require an "official" translation) but they do not need to be notarized. Nor does the intent to marry. As it is you'll have to do a second one for interview.
