Form I129-F Expiry

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys

We are almost ready to file, but still probably a couple of weeks away. Looking at the expiry date on the I129-F, it says its the 6/30/16...
Should we wait and download the new one, or so long as the signatures are dated before that day will it still be ok to send? Even if it doesn't reach the Lockbox by then?
It's no problem for us to hold on, it just means I will have to wait, fill out the new form and send the package from Australia to the US petitioner, who will then send it on from there.

Thanks for any advice :)

The OMB(Office of Management and Budget) expiration date only matters internally for the USCIS. That expiration date has nothing to do with whether or not it will be acceptable for you to use. The edition date(found on the lower left of the form pages) is what matters. The accepted edition dates for the forms are listed on the site where the forms can be found and downloaded.

The I-129F states this. > https://www.uscis.gov/i-129f

Edition Date

06/13/13. No previous editions accepted.

Not sure why you would fill out the form and mail it to the USC petitioner though. They are the one that signs and submits the I-129F petition, not the foreign fiance(e).

It is down to the USC petitioner to file the I-129F, any supporting documents needed from you can then be scanned or posted out to the USC. :)
