Hello, we are trying to prepare for the P-4, and we have a few problems with GIV-24.

I hope you can help us understand the quesstions, so we can give the correct answers, thanks.

#5 PETITIONER's type of visa

#7. Spouse's(US Citizen's family) nature parents US Entry date/type of visa

do these #5 & #7 all mean the visas of first US Entry (even if they are all US citizens now)

Thanks

For #5, yes. Born is USA is a common answer. If not, something like entered on XXVisa mm/dd/yyyy will do nicely.

For #7, my copy doesn't ask for entry information for parents. If the question is asked, they are looking for the same kind of answer in the example for #5 above.

Thank you!

Happy to be of help. You're going to need the telegrapic codes for the characters in your wife's name too. I lost my link to a handy website for getting them but she can go to any post office or China Telecom office to get them if you don't have them. That's item one on the GIV 24.

Do you have this guide?

The example I have says nothing about country in #7. It just asks for an address. Are we looking at the same form?

I know,but I was told that example was just a part of the whole form.

Because I just prepare for GIV-24,and have not received P-4 yet, I am not sure what the exact GIV-24 form is.

That explains the disconnect. They've updated the form and are no longer asking for telegraphic codes.

Yes, number seven directly refers to "birth country" separately from "present address". The old form did not. Just so you know, a primary use for this form is to catch perpetrators of visa fraud, so it is critical to be both as complete and accurate as possible.

If a family member (like all of mine) only has a US name in Roman characters, you need not write any Chinese characters for that person. That is only needed if their original name was Chinese.

This updated form does not explain in either English or Chinese that #7 is for the US spouse or fiance but on the old form, #7 was definitely for the USC's family members. I had my step-daughter read the Chinese carefully to see if it was in Chinese but not English. It is not. Perhaps the actual form they mail has it noted.

You are right.#7 does not explain that it is for USC's family members or Chinese family members .

#6 is for Chinese family members ,and #8 is for USC's family members ,but #7.............who knows.
