I think the machine reader will pick up on the GBRJONES<<Paul<<John and generate your I-94 at POE as Paul Jones. That is sometimes a problem when the Social Security office can't find you in the database under the name you give them...John Jones. They have to manually verify your entry and it delays you getting your SSN.

However if you can get the passport office to change it since it was an error, it would be good. There is premium service available to ask for since you don't want to wait weeks for it.

It doesn't matter if you go to the interview with a new passport and number. Lots of people have done that and said no issues at all.

If you have nothing in the varicella field--neither box below it ticked, then you will have to see a civil surgeon in the US to clear you on that shot. Did you have chickenpox? If so you can try to call the clinic and ask them to fill out a new sheet (before the results go to the embassy) indicating you have a history of varicella and they failed to mark it. If they say you can fix that in the US, inform them that if they had done it correctly, that form is sufficent for AOS. By making the error they could cost you a lot of money paid to a civil surgeon just to mark that you had chickenpox. Sometimes they are really bullheaded and won't accommodate you. Ask to speak to the head supervisor or the doctor who signed your form and explain why leaving off the checkmark is going to cost you money.

So you have not had chickenpox?

Did you turn in some titre test?

What shot is it marked by?

They aren't marking the bottom of this new form as I understand it on K1s but if you are complete as possible on the day, then they should.

Titre test=test for immunity You said that column was marked, but not with a date.

I can't see your form so guessing back and forth is useless. Being complete for adjustment of status would require your sheet to indicate:

MMR (two are required but if you have the waiver column marked B "insufficient time interval" , then you get a waiver. )

Td or Tdap or DT or DTP or DtaP (One dated no longer than 10 years ago)

Varicella the shot checked and a date or Varicella History checked if you had chickenpox

Influenza (during flu season) with a date or if not flu season the waiver column marked F "not flu season"

The other shots you don't need get marked A "not age appropriate"

C For contraindicated is a waiver if you have proven allergies to immunization, or for MMR if pregnant.

If your sheet has all those shots or waivers marked, then it should be good for AOS. She should also mark Complete, if all the shots/waivers are marked. If all the needed shots are not correctly dated or waived, then a Civil Surgeon in the US will have to do a new sheet before AOS. The trick is finding one who will do that without insisting on a new medical exam.

There is no instruction for the nurse to write K1 anywhere, but she does. I guess she thinks that's her way of telling the embassy your list doesn't have to be complete for a visa. They know that. They don't even have to review a K1s shots. What she doesn't seem to know is that if she would do your k1 sheet like she does for spouse visas, then it would be good for use during AOS.

Anybody who wants to be complete for AOS needs to be proactive and not leave until the sheet is filled out properly, even if it means paying for a shot there. Otherwise just pay a Civil Surgeon some more money later to get done what could have been accomplished at Knightsbridge.

That looks like a stray mark in the immunity column.

Complete on everything but Varicella. The reason I think "not routinely available" may not work for K1 is because you still have another chance to get complete when you enter the US. It is available in the US.

A spouse visa on the other hand, does not do AOS to get a greencard. They are permanent residents when they get off the plane and go through the immigration hall. So their shots must be complete by their visa interview. There are no further stops between them and permanent residency once their visa is approved. Because varicella isn't given as a routine immunization in the UK, it would be difficult to get before their interview. So they are allowed a waiver.

I really don't know what each adjudicator looking at your AOS file would think about "not routinely available" since it is available to you in the US. You could try it or you could ask Knightsbridge to fix it before your medical file is sealed up and off to the embassy.

"You have made a mistake on my immunization form. I had chickenpox and it was not marked as Varicella History. I would like that corrected before my file goes to the embassy."

Blah blah

"Yes, I know I don't need the shots complete for the visa, but I have paid you £xxx,xx for this medical and I would like all the information to be included, even my chickenpox."

"Please mail me a copy of the corrected DS-3025 so I know it has been done"

That's about all I have to offer. What did you decide on the passport?

That's really weird. That's the exact same handwriting on my vaccination form and she definitely asked me about, then wrote down I had varicella history (I'm pretty sure it's the initials VH she wrote down), and she correctly deduced that my last boosters were within the last 10 years. Maybe she was having an off day?


ROC from CR-1 visa (Green Card expiration date was Nov 24th 2016)

 

Link to the evidence I submitted. Be sure to send evidence spanning your entire marriage (especially for K-1) or as far back as you can. Just one or two bank statements will not cut it. I primarily focused on the two years of living here since I came in on a CR-1. If you don't have the fundamentals (i.e. joint accounts/policies), you can explain why in the covering letter. E.g. "While we do not have joint utilities, we both contribute to them from our joint bank account".

 

September 26th 2016: I-751 package sent to CSC

September 28th 2016: Package delivered
September 30th 2016: Check cashed
October 3rd 2016: NOA1 received with receipt date of 09/28/16
November 3rd 2016: Biometrics received with appointment date of 11/14/16.
November 14th 2016: Attended biometrics appointment
October 30th 2017: Infopass appointment to get I-551 stamp
February 26th 2018: I-751 case number (aka the NOA1 receipt number) becomes trackable
March 14th 2018: Submitted service request due to being outside of processing time.

March 15th 2018: ROC approved. 535 days (1 year, 5 months and 17 days)

March 29th 2018: Card being produced

April 4th 2018: Card mailed out

April 6th 2018: Card in hand. Has incorrect "resident since" date. Submitted service request on I-751 case (typographical error on permanent resident card) and an I-90 online.

April 2018 - August 7th 2018: Tons of service requests, emails and now senator involvement to get my corrected green card back because what the heck, USCIS

August 8th 2018: Card in production thanks to the direct involvement of Senator Sherrod Brown's team

August 13th 2018: Card mailed

August 15th 2018: Card in hand with correct date. :joy:
