8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

chat logs / call logs

bills from joining time together

boarding passes from trips to visit each other

gifts (should not be one sided)

common interests

trips around holidays where you visit family and each others birthdays are even better if you can.

good luck

Cards and letters sent from other family members to you as a couple (congratulations cards, Christmas cards, etc), passport stamps and tickets to show visits to each other, wills (you are never too young).

The best evidence is always time spent together. Focus on quality not quantity when it comes to secondary evidence like photos, phone call records and chat logs.

I have basically the same question.

I have seen some of the responses in this post and a few others. And as I have been gathering my Proof of ongoing legitimate relationship I noticed my chat logs are over 400 pages! And most of it that is nonsense and kissy emojis!

For the past year, my fiance and I have spent several hours EVERY day talking or video chatting on WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger. How can I validate that? WhatsApp at least does not let you download your call logs the way you can download your chat log.

We have our pictures and proof of meeting, which include an engagement party, valentine's date and pictures with her friends and family. Doesn't that count to the ongoing relationship, or do they really want 400+ pages of emoticons?

Philippines is very easy to get approved, and very quickly. No don't include 400 pages. Send a few pics, Passport stamps, email/chat logs just a few pages, boarding passes if you traveled together.

Definitely don't include 400 pages of whatsapp chat (lol).

We went with:

  • AT&T phone log (showing calls to and from)
  • Moneygram/Western Union transfers
  • Photos from trips I took to visit
  • Boarding passes, hotel receipts, dinner receipts

We had the "good" fortune to go through the tough high-fraud sensitive consulate of Guangzhou. We followed the K1 Visa Guide and included a good mix of all of the types of examples that are mentioned there, and had good success. From the K1 Guide:

Documentary Proof of Having Met in Person in the Past Two Years and an Ongoing Relationship:

Use as many of these items are possible. There is no minimum, but the more you can provide the less likely you are that you will receive an RFE. Additionally, please note that providing proof of your ongoing and genuine relationship in this package may benefit you by allowing the consulate to have access to this information prior to them formally contacting the non US Citizen fiance. Many high risk consulates approach cases with a skeptical eye and providing this information early on in the original I-129F package will help them in their preliminary review of your case.

1. Copies of all airline boarding passes, train passes, itineraries, hotel receipts, passport stamps (make sure you can read the dates on the stamps), and other documentary evidence that you have met within the last two years. You may want to highlight or place post-it notes indicating the dates and locations on the copies (to make the adjudication easier) for the person reviewing your file.
2. Color Photo's of you and your fiance together. Make sure you write your names, date, and location on the back of every photo. Provide two to five photo's. If you only have a single copy of the photo, then make a color copy and send that. If it is a digital photo, have it printed at a local photo store such as Walgreens (if at all possible) or if not on a high quality printer. Place photo's in a plastic bag or photo sheet and label the sheet. Note that you may not receive originals of photo's back.
3. The following items will not typically show proof of having met in the last two years however will show proof of an ongoing relationship: Copies of land line and cell phone bills, appropriate letters and emails, stamps on the letters (to document the date they were sent), and other written documentary proof. Provide a reasonable amount; two to four of each type. Pick a range of dates up to and including the present. You can also include a copy of engagement ring receipt (this is something that is a big optional - do not worry if you do not have a ring yet!)

Easily accessible at the top of the forum page, in the GUIDES section.

Good luck on your immigration journey.
