Question Regarding Fiancée Mailing/Address Abroad

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

We just got engaged this weekend and have started the process to fill out and mail the I-129F packet. I've followed the forum for months now and am fairly confident that we have filled out everything correctly however, we have a bit of confusion when it comes to what to put for her Mailing and Address Abroad address in the appropriate sections of the I-129F form.

She will be working abroad for the next 4-5 months in Canada. Should we fill out the addresses with her address in her home country, Australia, or should we fill it out with her address for where she'll be living in Canada? We're not sure if they'll be sending any paperwork to the address we put and if we put the address for Canada and they send anything after she's left then we won't get it or have any notice of it. Additionally, if we put in the address for Australia but she's not currently living there then I'm not sure if they'd accept it.

Any kind of help you could provide would be fantastic. This little bit of information is really the only thing we're missing before we can file it and officially start the process.

Thank you.

Maylene

Beneficiary address doesn't receive anything from the Consulate anymore. So your Aussie fiance won't receive anything through the post EXCEPT her passport/visa when issued.

Your address as the sponsor IS important. It is where NOAs will be mailed, reference numbers and all that jazz. So make sure that your address in the USA is current and/or accessible (family).

Hope this helps and congratulations!!!

Thanks for the reply! That helps clear things up a bit. My address as the sponsor is all set so there's no issue with that. I just wanted to make sure there wouldn't be an issue with putting her Aussie address on the I-129F form for her information wouldn't be an issue since for the time being she's in Canada working. But she'll only be there until November and then she'll be going back to Australia and completing the interview and final process there so we'll just use the address there for her side of the forms.

Thanks again! This was helpful :) And thank you for the congratulations!!
