Question about guide to submitting K1 application

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


I've been looking at the guide in the below link and trying to get everything together listed there. I have not submitted anything at all to immigration yet but on their website it says the first thing to do is submit the I-129F. It does not seem to ask for any supporting documents at that stage. Also, some of the applications under the guide are asking for Alien numbers, addresses for consulates/interviews etc which I assume is issued after the petition has been submitted? I do not want to delay the process further by getting all this information together and then having to do it all again because I've missed vital reference numbers etc. Can anyone offer any advice?


Thanks in advance.

Follow the guide you linked, people here and myself included did and have been sucessful. You can also go to uscis.gov, find form i129f and read through the forms, instructions and check list.

If you still have doubts, I suggest you read through the k1 forum, as well as the example forms here.

Good luck

What country are you from?

Some countries should submit more evidens then others.

I've suggest you follow the guide and submit what is in there, it will most likely save you from a RFE and with that delayed time...

First begin a timeline and keep it updated throughout your journey. So many new members do not do this.

1. it ensures your questions/topic gets sent to the correct country portal where others working with the same consulate can share their information and experiences.

2. It gives those responding to your questions background info and saves alot of time and helps the accuracy of their responses.

3. Other VJers can compare your timeline with theirs which gives more insight and information in this process.

I understand many VJers restrict their profile information for privacy, but at least list your country so we know what consulate your working through.

Ok as far as an Alien # ...some have one some do not. If your beneficiary does not just put "none" or "n/a".

How much relationship evidence you send in with your I-129F, which is called "front loading" can depend on your consulate. VJers working through difficult consulates will tend to send more than those who are not.

I don't remember the I-129f form asking for the embassy's address, but you should be able to find it under the embassy info tab

Thanks for the responses. My fiance is from the UK so thats the consulate.

I'm from the UK and the guide at http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1guide worked well. I included evidence of every time we met including boarding passes, photos, stamps in passport. Never had an RFE by following it completely.
