can my fiance travel outside the US after filing for the k1 visa?

Recommended Posts

Hello there! My fiance and I are planning on filing the i129f this June and he also has plans of visiting me here in the Philippines this July until September.

He is Filipino but a naturalized USC. And goes home once every year for my birthday (August).

I have been lurking around VJ and can't seem to find any topics directly relevant to my concern here. So some quick questions;

1. Will it be okay for my USC fiance to travel outside the United States immediately after filing for the petition?

2. What foreseeable problems would arise given the fact/situation?

3. Would there be hard copies of docs from the USCIS sent to his home address that he would physically need to fill up and send back in the states?

4. I am aware of G1145, however, I am not sure if they would send him hard copies of things in the mail which I would (in the future) need to bring with me during the visa interview at USEM.

Everything is online now right?

Any feedback about this would be appreciated. And I hope this would help others out there in the future as well. thank you in advance. :girlwerewolf2xn:

1. yes he can.

2. no problems.

3. yes there will be hard copies sent to whatever he uses as his address.

4. yes they will always send it in mail, the g1145 serves as the purpose for extra back up such as the email and texts for those impatient people like most of us that dont like waiting for the mail to come but the mail will come to him regardless.

Im pretty sure k1s need the noa2 for sure so yes but it can be scanned and sent to you through email and there wont be any issues people usually make several copies of it. just incase you dont want to wait for him to mail it or pay for the mailing.

Hello there! My fiance and I are planning on filing the i129f this June and he also has plans of visiting me here in the Philippines this July until September.

He is Filipino but a naturalized USC. And goes home once every year for my birthday (August).

I have been lurking around VJ and can't seem to find any topics directly relevant to my concern here. So some quick questions;

1. Will it be okay for my USC fiance to travel outside the United States immediately after filing for the petition? Yes he can travel because he is a USC. Doesn't matter by birth or naturalization, still has the same benefits. Be sure his passport is up to date and he has time remaining with it.

2. What foreseeable problems would arise given the fact/situation? None.

3. Would there be hard copies of docs from the USCIS sent to his home address that he would physically need to fill up and send back in the states? There are no documents that require him to be physically in the US to return, unless of course you receive a RFE on your initial application. If the package gets returned he would have to fix the errors and return the package back to USCIS. The other that you would consider is that he would get the NOA2 sent to his home but all you need is a text message that it has been approved and on it's way. You'll need the receipt number on it when you call to get your MNL# so you can set your interview appoint soon after. If someone can get that from the NOA2 and let you guys know then your good to go.

4. I am aware of G1145, however, I am not sure if they would send him hard copies of things in the mail which I would (in the future) need to bring with me during the visa interview at USEM. File this form as it will save time and allow you to keep moving forward at a steady pace.

Everything is online now right? Yes.

Any feedback about this would be appreciated. And I hope this would help others out there in the future as well. thank you in advance. :girlwerewolf2xn:

Thank you for your insights and I am currently on your blog right now. However, would he receive the receipt number by email or text message as well? Because sad to say, he lives alone and no one would be able to check his mail for him to look at the NOA2 receipt and forward it to us. Hmmmm.

it will be in the email you get just don't forget that g1145 . I can't remember if it gets sent in the text I want to say it does but don't hold me to that my husband has my old phone so I'm not able to check at the moment if it comes in the text as well but I know it comes in the email .

When you get the email that the NOA2 is complete your receipt number will be contained in that email. Also, you may want to consider having the USPO forward his mail to someone who can keep and eye open for the hard copy or any other correspondence you will receive. Make sure to sign up for email notification, it comes in handy.

Thanks so much everybody! We would most likely ask a friend to keep tabs on his mail while he's outside the country. thanks again! you guys have been very helpful. :)
