Hi guys! 

 

The day has nearly come! I’m moving to the USA tomorrow on my k1 Visa

 

Just wondering if there’s anything else I should take with me other than the package I received from the embassy and my previous applications etc? 

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

thanks

For entry, you need only your passport with K-1 visa along with the packet for immigration.......there is no need to take pictures, etc....You are immigrating to the US.  Your K-1 visa is proof of that. The only question I can imagine is "Do you plan to marry within 90 days".......of course, you need other records packed for later use for AOS.

Adding to the others--

 

Did you fill out the P85 form for UK?

 

Also a record of what you earned in the UK since Jan 1 such as your pay slips. That's something you will be asked to report on your 2019 US tax return if you file jointly with your spouse. It will be helpful to have something to refer to because by next February you may have forgotten.

 Wicked @Wuozopo !! 

 

Yeah I got my p45 ready for the p85, it wouldn’t allow to me to complete the online form because it asks what date I left the UK. So I will be completing this on Monday. 

 

Ive got all my pay slips, bank statements and credit card statements for the past 5 years with me. 

 

In regards to pics, will showing my instagram etc be enough for this? I’m taking one of my wedding invitations as proof of intent to marry. 

 

Anything else you guys can think of? 

 

Cheers for the help everyone!

You don't need photos at POE. You need your passport and your white envelope for the immigration queue and the customs form filled out on the plane after you retrieve your luggage. If you have used the kiosks for customs declaration before on visits, I believe that is only for VWP travellers with ESTA. Entering on a K1 visa instead of ESTA, you'll need the paper form this trip.

Maybe it was about being from Nigeria, known for high incidence of visa fraud. Or because your visa took more than two months to receive after the interview. MancRed's took 7 days. Somebody is seriously  checking you more closely.

You know funniest thing, the guy is a Nigerian too.. i think he's just a bully coz he's not suppose to do that!

He kept on saying the documents in the brown envelope is not complete, said pictures aren't inside and all, then I answered the embassy official gave it back me at the visa interview and he said lemme see it..
