Evidence of meeting for I-129F

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance and I have met in person numerous times. We first met a little over five years ago and since then I've gone to visit six different times. However, I know that they only ask for evidence of meeting in the last two years. Three of those trips have been in the last two years but I didn't keep any of the boarding passes. I do have e-ticket confirmations for my flights and the stamps to go with those in my passport. Do you guys think this will be fine? I also don't have any hotel receipts since I would stay at my aunts house. And if you're using passport stamps as evidence, do you have to make copies of all of the pages of your passport? Actually, the one that has the stamps in it expired and I have a new one. Should I just send the passport in?

Thanks for your help!

I would print out the itineraries, but especially focus on the passport stamps.

I printed out my entire passport in color because I choose to send that as my evidence for being a US citizen. I then printed out a single page of the passport stamps and put that in my "2 year evidence" section.

If you're just trying to send a paper with the stamps on it, I would just scan that page and send it. Don't send your old passport. You may need it later, and they're not likely to return your packet to you.

If you are using the passport as proof of your US citizenship, then you need to include a copy of all pages. If you are only using it to prove proof of meeting, then just copies of the pages with the stamps and your biographical page will do. Never send in an actual passport.

Show the stamps, which are most important, along with the ticket confirmations. Have any other receipts? Use your debit or credit card there while visiting? ATM receipts, bank and credit card statements also work. Add a few photos in there showing you 2 together with his family and friends as well. If you have any in front of landmarks in Mexico, then those would be good to use too.

The more of everything the better of course. The letter from your aunt will work. Any pictures of you two by something that is easily identifiable as being in Mexico (eg in the states Statue of Liberty)? I used the flight confirmations from the emails, the hotel confirmations from my email, only two pictures in which I handwrote dates, and my passport...all copied all pages starting from the cover to the back even blank ones. I didn't use boarding passes, but if you have those that would be awesome. I had zero problems,

Whatever you do don't send anything in you would want back such as your passport. Copies only.

All my boarding passes (bar one which I including) were all on my phone or iPod touch in the passbook app. So I only had one physical boarding pass. I took screenshots of the boarding passes on my phone and I kept all my bag tags (just as a keep sake) which I included. They were enough evidence to show I'd been in the U.S.

Add pictures of each trip, date, location, who's in the picture. That should be enough.

I had no RFEs.
