Received an RFE requesting proof that my fiance returned to her home country...?

Ok, so I recieved an RFE to complete the 2 year requirement.  But am dumbfounded what they need? I included airline itineraries back to Venezuela on all five of her trips here.  Seems like job justifying work to me .  However, I will send them copies of her passport that clearly show that she recieved an "entrada" stamp for all five visits.  Other than going around asking for affidavids from people, I do not have access to anything else and I need to get this to the USICS processing center in California by July  13th 2020.  My question is: Assuming they can read the passport stamps, will this satisfy the requirement?     ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.  I have included one photo from her passport. 

 

THanks for any and all comments

When did you file? What is your NOA1 date? 2017 is when she returned? Is that the last time she was here? Does that date fall within a two year period from the date you filed?

Yes, the date I filed was December 2019. She traveled here a total of five times.  That passport is obviously outside, sorry, but this is an example of the legibility.  I guess I will have to translate what Entrada means.

You should write a short affidavit explaining all visits and dates and make a quick table of what you attached as proof.

passport stamps and travel itineraries - never assume that they have it even if you already sent them - , receipts and photos of trips you made together, with dates and description. Anything you can think of that proofs that you were in the same place at the same time as a couple. If the RFE is only for 2 year requirement there’s no need to bother about all years, only the trips within 2 years before filing.

I am going to make an assumption here that whoever is adjudicating my application already has our itineraries and photos.  But I appreciate your feedback 🙂.  I also sent a table listing all of our trips with clearly marked post it notes attached to all original pictures and itineraries.

Itineraries and photos are secondary evidence and if that is what you submitted then that is why you received the RFE,  you need to send primary evidence such as boarding passes and passport stamps

But they can look up the I-94's to see when she entered and exited the US.  This just seems like busy work to me.  Can I print the I-94's from online?

It is your responsibility to show evidence.   The USA does not have exit controls so the i94 may not help you

I-94s only show entries as immigration doesn't track exits directly.   They do get passenger lists from the airlines.   Do they always match them up?

 

Did you try to look travel history at https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/#/home

Can you comment on whether the passport stamps are legible?  I swear this has to do with the current administrations tough stance on immigration.

I included a copy of my wife's i94 history with her application. It showed Arrival and Departure dates that are accurate. Maybe that will help you out along with the passport copies.

Not sure what you mean by outside. I speak Spanish so I know what entrada means. 

 

When was the last time she was here prior to you filing? If for example, her last trip was May 2017 and you filed in Dec 2019..that would be more than two years.

No.  The burden is on YOU to provide evidence.  Primary evidence of the two year meeting requirement include passport stamps and boarding passes.

Nope,  you want her here; you do the work.  Apparently what you submitted wasn't clear to the person adjudicating you petition. 

 

Twice it has been mentioned to check to see if here corresponding entries and exits are listed on the I-94 site.

 

I kept, and still keep a spreadsheet of every international travel of mine and my wife's.  We keep digitized copies of boarding passes and landing slips online.  I even include land trips to Mexico.  It has helped with border agents more than once for countries that had lax records and when we don't carry cancelled passports.
