Hi Guys


Looking at flights and wondered if I book at return flight does it matter? 

My K1 is in my hand Im ready to go!



Have found that booking round trip is cheaper. Just cancel the return flight before the date ur suppose to fly.

noa1 date is actually they date on ur hard copy. Sadly if u reach the magical 220 day u must wait till 225 to contact Uscis. They use what the new site says. Even if ur paper says X date. 

They added 5 days onto everyone’s accepted on NOA1

I would simply book the less expensive option.  Just be sure to cancel the return flight if you book a round trip...

I booked a return flight, it was more than half the price of a one way ticket.

I booked the return as far into the future as I could (ended up being six months)

Just gotta cancel the return ;)

I also booked a return flight, which as everyone says massively decreases the cost! I had a wishful thinking date of returning, which of course was impossible to meet... I just made sure to set myself a reminder to cancel the flight at a reasonably 'believable' time to cancel and in case it raised any flags with the airline (though I think only repeat offenders of doing this would have anything to worry about).
