Hello. I was reading Ds-156K form every other thing I got it but... Evidence of Engagement to Your Fiancé ?

what do I need to have to prove this ? is Letter of Intent good enough ?

I have a question for anyone who could maybe give me an answer , we got engaged back last Feb 14th but we haven't got the ring yet because we oted to put our money to better use (ie) filings fees etc.. question is would a letter of intent be good enough as one post said? Or do we have to show ring reciept and pics? But we don't have it yet. what do we do? Any suggestions on this matter would be greatly appreciated!

Laynie!

i'm pretty sure the letter is ok. YuAndDan says it is. YuAndDan seems to know a lot about the visa process & its requirements. we are waiting to get the ring..coz i think we should pick it out together, surely USCIS & your SO's embassy understands that.

Rings are not necessary at any point in the process, including adjusting status. I'm not even sure where the term "evidence of engagement" came from. I've never heard it before. Evidence of meeting is required with the petition as are letters of intent. Updated letters of intent for the interview are a good idea. Evidence of a bona fide ongoing relationship sufficient to convince the Consular officer, is required at interview. Evidence of engagement is a new one for me.

It's specifically stated on one of the forms that is filled out prior to the visa interview. Form DS-156K, to be exact. :)

My evidence included: ring receipts, pictures from the day we were engaged, the ring actually on my finger ;) , photos from our wedding shower, and "Congratulations on your engagement" cards and emails. Also the updated letter of intent from Jerry. None of it, other than the letter, was looked at during my interview.

DS 156 is the non immigrant visa application form. It is used for visitor visas as well. I don't see any request to prove you are engaged. Could you be more specific?

It is on the DS-156K, Nonimmigrant Fiance(e) Visa Aplication. The form on the website expired 7/31/2007. In Colombia, the DS-156K is submitted with the DS-156. I assume it is the same everywhere, but maybe not.

The DS-156K has a list of documents that must be attached in order to apply for a Fiance(e) Visa. One of those documents is Evidence of Engagement to Your Fiance(e).

As far as I know, most people fulfill this requirement by submitting a new letter of intent.

Thank you. I missed the "K". No, not all Consulates use this form. A letter of intent will do nicely. Some countries may have official documents for engagement. I wouldn't know.

Just to add mine, I have a credit card bill that shows our initial deposit to our wedding planner as well as the initial contract for our wedding planner... I also have the packaging and customs declaration from when my fiance mailed my ring to me (yes I know - it is very lame - I am sure we will update *that* part of our story on our website at some point ;)) the receipt from the ring and obviously the actual ring itself...

This line on the form appears to be relatively new. There is no requirement or law to have a ring. Most people wouldn't dare make any plans for a wedding because this process is so unpredictable and again, there is no requirement for proof of wedding plans, etc. The letter of intent should be more than sufficient as well as anything else you might have i.e. engagement cards, etc. Not something to stress about.

define "relatively new" -- it was on my form when I had to fill it out in the fall of 2004, and the form itself expired 5/31/2004.

All I can say is in November 2006 we did not have to include evidence of our engagement. That why I said "appears to be relatively new".
