2 Questions in I-29F form

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Two Questions please I need your insight

1- On I-129F form page 9 ,Part 3 , 5.d.  ( Not applicable Beneficiary is my spouse or I am not Multiple filer ) 

I see the question if you check it will leave some vague for RFE .. so I didn't check the box , but on Page 13 Part 8 ( additional information) I did put ( P9 , Part 3 , 5.d.)  ( Not applicable  Beneficiary is my Fiancé And I am not Multiple filer ) .. Am I done the right thing by not checking the box but mention it in details on Part 8 , or not checking the box could lead for RFE ?  


2- Part 2 Q#54 My story :[[ I and  my fiancé met for the first time  on date ### # in her country .. and on this date ### we had our formal engagement party .. I met my fiancé through family member who knew her well ( I mentioned the details and attached pictures ) .. before I came to my Fiancé country I communicated with her for months via Facebook webcam chat . ]]


So basically I met her through a relative then communicated with her via fb webcam chat , are they will RFE Facebook terms of services ? or Not Applicable  in this case ? 

Thank you in advance for your great responses

1) Check 5.d ("Not applicable, beneficiary is my spouse or I am not a multiple filer"). No need for an explanation as to why...what vagueness is there? You are saying you aren't requesting a waiver.

On past forms there was no equivalent option so no box was checked and there were no issues with that. Now it's explicitly saying it doesn't apply.


2) What country is involved? A "formal engagement party" can raise its own issues by mentioning it for a fiance visa. Was any formal attire worn?

They are unlikely to request the FB TOS as it's not a dating website. That said, there is no harm in including it. Furthermore, you didn't meet through FB...you communicated through it. The reason for asking how you met is to ensure that you did not meet through an IMB (or that proper IMB processes were followed if you did), in accordance with IMBRA requirements. How you choose to communicate after meeting has no relevance to IMBRA compliance.


But including chats and such are fine to include as a means of frontloading relationship evidence for the embassy to review later.

I would be very careful about the "formal engagement party".  I would not include any pictures.  I would not mention it......
