I-130 spouse beneficiary passport required?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm almost done putting together my I-130 package. The USCIS instructions don't seem to say that we must include a copy of the spouse beneficiary's passport or birth certificate, though I have seen this listed as required evidence on other checklists for the I-30 and I-130A. Can you tell me if it's required or not? Same goes for form I-94 - I have included the details of my I-94 and passport on the actual form, but am not sure if I need to provide copies too in the evidence section too?

Many thanks in advance,

Katy

The following I-130 package checklist is outdated:

 "A copy of the intending immigrant's birth certificate and/or passport along with English translation" is no longer needed for I-130 package.

Are you doing consular processing? If so, I recommend online filing for I-130 petition: https://www.uscis.gov/i-130; I-130A and other documents can be uploaded.

 

If you are doing AOS concurrent filing, then I-130 package should be sent together with I-485 package via mail. Also send I-765 and I-131; they are optional but highly recommended.

Thanks, that's really helpful. Yes, that's the checklist I was looking at, good to know it's not up to date. Yes, I'm doing concurrent AOS filing so will be sending to the lockbox. Cheers!

Just a reminder that beneficiary passport copy (or copy of other Government-Issued ID) and I-94 copy are sent in as part of your spouse's I-485 package.
