K1 Visa form I-129F Employment History Question Please Help

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm currently filling in my parts in the I-129F K1 fiancé visa application form.
It asks for employment details of the beneficiary over the last 5 years. I have only been working for one year in an unpaid internship (the latest year) and had a gap of a year before that, were I was unemployed taking care of a sick relative. Further before that I was a university student for the remainder of the years. 
Do I list 'Full time student' as my occupation? and what do I do about the gap?

Also I'm struggling to find the difference between what 'Passport number' and what 'Travel document' numbers is, as I have listed my passport number but I am asked for both, I thought it was the same thing?

 

 

REALLY appreciate any help or advice!

I don't think being a student is employment..........gaps in employment are a non-issue.......

It asks for occupation - so I thought this would include being a student. But then contradicts by asking for employer details. Thanks for your reply though!

Being a student is covered under education........work is covered under employment......two separate areas.

No, I live in the UK. 
I have recently been to visit the US for just over a week on a visa waiver to see my fiancée who is a US citizen and resident. Back in the UK now.

38a to 38h are only applicable if you are currently present in the USA

Completely missed that! Thanks a lot :) I just assumed they needed my passport information somewhere but that's the only place they seem to request it.

Brilliant :)
I don't suppose you or anyone knows if my lack of employment previous to the current year is an issue? Should I write an additional statement explaining I was a student? Or will I need to state somewhere else. As it asks for 5 years...

No issues at all whatsoever.  My fiancee wasn't working at all.
