DS-160 Questions

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Timeline

We are filling out the DS-160 but have a few questions. It will be greatly appreciated if someone can provide guidance on how to answer these questions.

1. Person/Entity Paying for Your Trip

My attorney stated on the I-134 that I will cover 'all travel and boarding expense while he is in the USA', but my fiance will pay for his air ticket. Should we put 'SELF' or 'U.S. PETITIONER' for this question?

2. Are there other persons traveling with you?

It is my plan to travel to China and come back to the US with him after he receives the visa, should we say yes to this question and put my name on it? I am not sure if it is only applicable to any foreigners (people that need a visa) traveling to the US with my fiance.

3. Do you have documentation to establish that you have received vaccinations in accordance with U.S. law?

It is my understanding that my fiance can get vaccinated during the medical exam or after he arrives the US. Should we answer no to this question with an explanation that says he will get it done during the medical exam?

1. Self is fine, you are applying for a K-1 visa, that question is geared more towards B visa applicants.

2. You will answer none. This question refers to family members that would need a visa.

3. He cannot get his K-1 without the vaccinations. This question should be marked based on the information available. If he had the records mark yes, otherwise mark no. He will need to present the records to a civil surgeon before his interview to have the information ready for the interview, our receive the vaccines from the doctor. He cannot get vaccinated after he enters the US, because they are required for the visa.

The vaccines are administered during the medical exam.
