Post Issuance Questions

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Can someone either direct me to, or inform me of the next steps to take after visa issuance?

 

The visa was issued from Moscow. As I understand it this is what is supposed to happen now (please correct me if I am wrong)

 

1. My fiance is supposed to pick up her passport and possibly a sealed packet of documents.

  • What happens if she is not given this packet upon pick up?

2. We book her flight to the USA

3. Pay an immigration fee? ($220) with a piece of paper given when the passport is picked up.

4. She arrives at the POE sealed packet and passport in hand

5. She arrives at customs, gives packet, possibly has another interview of sorts, possibly taken to a secondary location for document processing

6. We are hopefully finally reunited

7. Get married within 90 Days 

8. File for status adjustment (pay near a month's salary)

  • Does this have to be immediately after marriage? 
  • That is a lot of money to pay at one time

9. Wait for a green card and do all the junk with adjusting status

 

Have I missed anything? Am I totally correct? I love how half of this process is just digging around the internet searching for information hoping that it actually pertains to your situation. 

 

I am happy that at least we are closer to being able to sort through this mess together.

1.  Unless Moscow has gone e-packet, the envelope will be attached

3.  What $220 fee?

5.  Passport control not customs whom will inspect her and the envelope 

8.  Adjustment of status,  advanced parole and work authorization at the same time 


YMMV

I saw it online during my recent research making sure my fiance is ready to enter the country. 

 

Thanks for the info, I can put that money towards the adjustment and what not.
