i129f questions (merged topics)

24 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I filled out the i129f form but I am not sure of one question: Page 7, item 49a. It asks my beneficiary's name and address in his native alphabet. My beneficiary is from Ukraine but lives in Poland. However, when the petition is approved he will go back to Ukraine and do the rest of the process there (file for the visa in Kiev). It would make no sense to write his address in Poland in Ukrainian letters...so I wrote his Ukrainian address in Ukrainian even though that is not where he is physically right now.

We want the mailing address to be in Ukraine even though he lives in Poland right now.

The instructions state to write his physical address in his native language but like I said, it would make no sense to write a Polish address in Ukrainian, I want to make sure all mail goes to Ukraine. What should I do?

I agree it makes no sense. IMO you can answer Item Numbers 50.a. - 50.f. with "N/A"

Not Applicable is what you type in the first available space for the address, but DO provide the NAME in Cyrillic.

But in OP's case, the transliteration of a Polish address to Ukrainian cyrillic might not be straightforward for most ordinary native Ukrainians (thus "N/A" could be more appropriate). If you would have tried the K-1 route Enrique, you could skip this section because Spanish uses Roman letters, as per the I-129F instructions:

Quote

Item Numbers 49.a. - 50.f. Your Beneficiary’s Name and Address in His or Her Native Alphabet. If your beneficiary’s native alphabet does not use Roman letters, provide his or her name and physical address abroad in the native alphabet. Otherwise, skip to the next question (Item Number 51.).

Alphabet and language are not synonyms.  Alphabets are Roman, Chinese, Cyrillic, Arab, Sanskrit, etc. not Italian, Russian, English, Hindi, etc.

 

The Abc's are the "Roman Alphabet" regardless of "language".

I am scared to write N/A because how would they forward any information in the future to his Ukrainian address? Do they translate it themselves from where I wrote his mailing address?(I wrote his Ukrainian mailing address in english where they specifically asked for his mailing address).

The i129f asks for a 2x2 passport photo for petitioner and beneficiary. My beneficiary is in Europe and Europe's standard for passport photos isn't 2x2. I had my fiance send me his passport photo digitally where I then formatted it onto a white background on my phone and guessed the size. I printed it out as a regular 4x6 photo, glossy and will be cutting it out to 2x2 inches. Will this work? What does everybody else do? Should I also include a European physical copy of his European passport photo with the one I modified myself?

What most folks do is tell the photographer exactly what they want and have them provide it.  Don't ask for a passport photo.  Ask for a passport style photo or US visa photo in the 5cm X 5cm dimension.  If what you are doing provides the same result, then fine.

Okay thank you!

Do you know if the mailing address requested for my beneficiary is supposed to be in english? My beneficiary's mailing address is in Ukraine. I just don't know how they would mail anything to him if I put a Ukrainian address in english letters.

It should be in English as the USCIS asks for. And they might email epackage 3 to him when your petition is transiting to the USA consulate in Ukraine .Make sure to call the NVC telling them his email address  when you get your case status "approved ".So he won't miss this epackage 3. Also he'll need to fill out DS160 later when your case status is" in transit ", he can put his information on it including his mailing and email addresses and before he gets the visa payment fee printed out, he needs to fill in what address he wants them mail the passport or the other package.

My i129f is 90% typed but there are many fields where I took a black pen and filled out "N/A" and also wrote some extra employment information in the back. Is it okay that its a mix of typed information and some ink?

You can't write something in the back of i129F. Put them on the page 13

I had to write a Japanese address in Turkish. 

 

Which obviously didnt make sense, so we added an additional paper and put the address in Japanese(local address).

 

the address should match the one written on the address section so I don’t think you can chose it  at this part of the process.
