K-1 questions

After doing some research on the official site and online, these items are what needs to be included with the K-1 application. Did I miss anything?

-Proof of citizenship (petitioner, me)
-passport copy (both people)
-proof of relationship (photos, chats, letters)
-Passport photo (both people)
-proof of meeting within two years (plane tickets etc)
-statement of intent to marry within 90 days


For the copy of the passport do they mean just picture part or do we need to copy every page of the passport?

Also for my fiance, she is from Venezuela but currently living in Costa Rica, she was mentioning something about getting some kind of international seal on her birth certificate. Is that something thats necessary?


Thanks!

Passport copy not required unless the USC is using as proof of citizenship (ID page only)

 

Proof of relationship not required for the petition 

 

You should probably go back and reread the petition instructions 

 

Beneficiary birth certificate not required for petition,  why are you wanting a special seal (apostille) for it?

Here are the instructions for the form, evidence required begins on page 10

Your fiancé is likely talking about getting her birth certificate apostilled. My fiancé is also from Venezuela and urged me of the same, although our embassy never stated that they required the birth certificate to be apostilled or legalized. He was insistent he do it anyway, so we did. I don’t think it made any difference in our case since our embassy did not specifically request it, but you will want to check with your embassy since each location has different requirements.
