Proving domicile while not living in USA

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Bit worried about this part of our visa application. We are at NVC stage, have submitted all documents and are just waiting for them to be accepted and the interview scheduled. I've been reading up about the intent to restablish domicile and wanted to know if anyone had any suggestions for this? My husband has been living in Australia for 5 years now and so haven't got anything back in the USA - he thinks he closed all his bank accounts when he moved. We've submitted a letter saying he intends in good faith to establish domicile about a month before I get there, but I am getting worried this won't be enough. Is there a way to open a bank account in the USA without going there physically? Thanks in advance..

Hi, Well i can tell you our experience, my husband Was living overseas for 10 years and when we Was submitted all the documents to NVC the approved everything except proof of domicile, he didnt have no bank account or bills on his name or anything, we Just sent a letter saying he wants to reestabllsh domicile no later than my arrival. 

Well they reject that and ask me for more evidence, but we didnt have, so we send a letter form his brother saying we Was going to live in his house and a couple of emails from a school for my child and job aplications that he sent, and they reject again!! 😢 So we finally decided the only Way Will be he move phisycally to the states, and that is what he díd, 2 months ago, finally we presenta everything bank account, job letter, cell phone bills, and everything we found. 

Now we have case completed and we are Waiting for the interview Day. 

Also it depends Which CO review your case some are more estrict than others. So i Wish you good luck, and i hope you dont have to waste all the time we díd Waiting for approvals that were rejected.
