Confiscated Stay & Exit permits, no passport stamps.

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My American SO and I met in Israel ( I had to fly there too, because we both wanted to visit Jerusalem), and he ran across overly suspicious security agents in Ben Gurion, who confiscated his laptop and entry & exit permits, as he was about to board a plane back to the USA. As the result, my love  permanently lost both his laptop and the primary evidence of his visit.  That has been our only meeting IRL so far. He applied for my K-1 this Spring and 3 months later  we got the RFE for not including passport style pictures and the evidence of meeting. Unfortunately Israel no longer stamps passports, so those entry & exit permits are extremely important. I've got all my documents, including the Israeli stay permits, passport stamps, proving I left my own country and later got back, boarding passes, flight itinerary, paid hotel receipt and what not. My fiancé , however, has only the boarding pass from Israel to the USA,  a paid flight itinerary and a paid hotel receipt ( we stayed at the same hotel), as well as our picture , where we were holding our Israeli stay permits. It was taken from a distance, and one can't see those permits clearly. We called the Israeli Embassy, and they said, they could mail him the government entry & exit records, corroborating  his visit, but it would take more than a month, and our deadline was in the beginning of September, so we had to respond to the RFE and send them what evidence we had. Do you think, it will be enough or not? My elderly father has serious heart problems, and his condition hasn't really improved since I told him the news...

You can send only what you have........send everything you have.  Not being able to read the permits in the picture is not an issue, imo.  

1.  The boarding pass from Israel to the US is evidence he was there.

2.  The hotel receipt is evidence he was there.  Along with your hotel receipt it is proper evidence.

3.  The picture with you is evidence you were together at some point in time.

4.  Your hotel receipt, boarding passes, and stamps are proper evidence.

The flight itinerary is useless.....Itineraries can change.

Weren't those items he has sent with the initial I-129f?

He initially included only a bunch of our pictures and sent nothing else. When he got the RFE, however, we checked all the evidence together several times.😄😄😄
