K-1/K-2 Separate travel question

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance and her minor son will be interviewing in Guangzhou in August when he has a break in school. After the interview, he will return to school and travel about 5 months later directly to the U.S. This is still in the validity period of the K-2 visa, and he is old enough (19), to travel on his own. She wanted to be traveling to the U.S. soon after the visa is received. We would be married and adjusting her status before her son arrived.

She had heard that there may have been a change in policy about interviewing and travelling separately. She was informed by an agency that if they interviewed together, they had to travel together.

If there are no problems with the interview and the visas are issued, can they request that separate sealed travel envelopes be created with the necessary medical & immigration forms inside?

I would think that this is a regular occurrence. Does anyone have recent experience with this?

Seems reasonable, all you can do is ask. Not aware of any change in "K2 to follow" policy.

eh - the risk here is the visa packets.

There are 2, one for her, one for child.

If Guangzhou IV does it's job after the interview date,

then there will be 2 separate visa packets delivered.

If the workers in the prep room are sloppy, then both visa packets are put into the same big 'do not open' envelope.

So, at the interview:

1. tell the Vice Consul interviewing her that she needs 2 separate visa packets as travel dates are different.

2. have 3 sheets printed, asking that the 2 visa packets are sent separately. 1 with the I-134 set (a chinese worker takes this), 1 with the passports, and 1 with the visa packet document delivery coverpage(s ) . 3 different humans will see this, and hopefully 2 separate visa packets will be sent out.

if the visa packet that arrives is only 1 big envelope, 1 shipment, then the entire thing has to be sent back to GUZ IV via CITIC bank courier, and that's a huge hassle to get em separated.

Go Get Em, and Good Luck !

ps - the Agency is wrong
