I129F - Proof of Meeting Airline Ticket/Itinerary, etc

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My flight back to the US was cancelled and then delayed, making my passport stamps/boarding pass different from the original flight itinerary.

 

I have email confirmation of the changed flights. Are those enough? Or do I need to write an explanation for the changes and attach it to the petition?

 

My worry is that USCIS will get confused with the dates.

 

Also, I have gaps in my physical address (one week to a few weeks) because in the past when I moved from state to state I took a moving van and stayed in motels in different cities on the way. I also visited friends and family at times. Is this okay? Or do I need to explain the gaps as well?

 

Thanks!

Itineraries are meaningless....actual passport stamps and boarding passes are real evidence.

Anyone with a credit card can purchase a flight ticket and therefore have an itinerary. Only a person with a passport stamp can prove they actually took the flight and entered the country.

Copies of boarding passes (hopefully you kept them), and of course they want copies of the passport stamps 

 

short gaps in address are't anything too exciting, not sure I would bother making special notes on this

This happened to my flight too and I didn't explain at all. Just included copies of the boarding passes right after itinerary in the original petition. I had zero problems and no RFE.

A short gap should be no problem, the passport stamps are what really matter. If you have the boarding pass and passport stamp you don't even need to include your emailed itinerary.  If you're really paranoid you can get a proof of travel (and explanation that your flight was delayed) letter from the airline, contact their customer service.

I don't know about the address thing, but a couple weeks isn't a big deal. They would likely only find it suspicious if it were months, a lot of people have temporary living conditions between homes.
