Waiting for NOA2, question about passports

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! So, my fiancé and I sent off our I-129f around December 10th, 2018. And unfortunately I am just about to get my passport for the first time in my life (my fiancé visited me from Ireland so he has his passport) I’m about to get mine on February 4th, 2019. My fiancé’s passport expires around summer, but he’s just about to get his renewed as well about the same time (February 4th, 2019). My question would be, would they be able to see this about our passports when they look up our info on us? Or does it even matter? Could it even be grounds for denial? I sent in my birth certificate as proof of citizenship, and along with his just for extra proof for him, along with absolutely everything else necessary, checking definitely 10+ times. Thank you so much for your help! >~< 🙂

Not sure I understand your question.   Why would applying for a passport be grounds for denial?

I assume you're  the USC living in the US.. No, the back and front of your BC is enough for the 129f, your previous and/or future passport doesn't matter if you provided your full BC instead. 

 

The beneficiary will provide his new passport number when he files the DS-160 in the next step of the process.

I apologize for the confusion (:. I could’ve sworn I read along the process somewhere that our passports must be up to date, so I added that to my list of things to do for this process. Because I’m pretty sure it said if they weren’t up to date, not the best things would happen lol. Better safe than sorry to me, and I wanted to be sure they were updated before they got a chance to look at our file, which I’m sure this probably sounds silly or overthinking to someone. I apologize for the confusion again (:.

I see. And yes I am the USC living in the US. Thank you so much for this Scandi (:. I’m honestly excited to get my passport, I can’t wait to see him again. But thank you!

If that's  what you were thinking it would have made more sense to get passports before sending off the I-129f in the first place, no? So both of you could go through the whole process with valid passports.

 

But no, it won't matter either way. Your passport isn't important when you have the full BC instead, and the beneficiary's passport number was asked for on the i-129f (if I remember it correctly) and will also be asked for on the DS-160 and is also the document the Visa will eventually be attached to.

 

So if the beneficiary's passport number was needed for the i-129f,  then you would've put his current number. If he updates his passport now he will provide his new number on the DS-160.

They don't ask for beneficiaries passport number on the I-129f

They must have changed that then, they did when I filed (part 2 question 38e). But that part could have been for those beneficiaries who were in the US at the time of filing.

Either way, nothing that affects anything.
