I-129F: Places You Have Resided looks funny.

Hello! I have a quick question.

For questions numbers 50.a. - 51.b. in section 1 on page 4, it asks for you to provide all of the foreign countries, not necessarily with any correlation, just simply the states and countries you've lived in.

 

For example I've lived in the following states: MA, CT, CA; and the following countries: USA, AUS, KR.
 

It looks wrong but I've listed my residence as the following:

 

Residence 1 ( page 4 )
50.a: MA
50.b: USA

Residence 2 (page 4 )
50.a: CA
50.b: Australia

Residence 3 (page 8 )
50.a: CT

 

Residence 3 (page 8 )
50.b: South Korea

I guess it's off putting because the states I've lived in don't correlate with the country. I'd rather be put VIC Australia; Gyeongsangbuk-do, Korea: and MA, USA, but I've seen no examples of this on visa journey.

Anyway, thanks in advance.

Why are you not putting USA as the country for each state?

I would do it this way:

 

On Page 4:

 

Residence 1

50.a. State: MA

50.b. Country: United States

 

Residence 2

51.a. State: CT

51.b. Country: United States

 

On Page 8:

 

Residence 3

51.a. State: CA

51.b. Country: United States

 

Residence 4

51.a. State: Victoria

51.b. Country: Australia

 

Residence 5

51.a. Province: Gyeongsangbuk-do

51.b. Country: South Korea

I think that there is.

 

For example, if one resided in the state of Washington in the United States and in Australia:

 

Residence 1

50.a. State: WA

50.b. Country: Australia

 

This may be misunderstood as Western Australia (WA), Australia.

That makes a lot of sense, I'll change it thank you!

I have a question, too, in that case. In the extra information I put my current state as:

 

52.a. New Jersey

 

with an explanation that this is my current state, and my third state or foreign country I have lived in since my 18th birthday.

 

Because 50.a. and 51.a. are already used for the first two, and there is no 52.a.

 

I figure that's ok?

Let me clarify, are you confused about how to use the citation? I would not add any additional numbers to the form, so do not put 52.a or 52.b, because 52 isn't an option on the form. 

From what I've seen people usually re-write the second example (Residence 2) on page 8, and therefore repeat the numbers 51.a and 51.b, in the Item Number box on page 8. I would put 51.a - b: Residence 4, 51.a - b: Residence 5, 51.a - b: Residence 6 etc. 

I am unable to use "-"  in the document so I am going to print it out and write it by hand.
