I found this out by trial and error and want to share the info.

K-1 visa application at CGI STANLEY has no field to enter new DS160 AA number when you click UPDATE PROFILE TAB.

To update the AA number, you need to start application as non immigrant F-1 or any other NIV category, UPDATE PROFILE tab has AA field to update.

THEN, start K-1 visa application again, your DS160 AA should be updated now.

Help Needed for scheduling for interview with wrong DS160

We received P4 today and tried to schedule an interview with GUZ.

1) we followed the instructions in P4 and registered an account at https://cgifederal.secure.force.com/appointmentconfirmation

2) filled up all the needed information but nowhere it asked for DS160 number

3) we paid the fee and scheduled the interview.

4) PROBLEM: the confirmation page has an old DS160 number,which we can not change. We have cancelled and rescheduled the interview multiple times. Yet, we can not change DS160 information.

Any advice?

Going to interview page

Ok, we have created profile, ustraveldocs.com

apply new K-1 visa, filled in fileds, paid with alipay and got receipt number.

We saw MANY warnings that DS160 barcode must match the appt confirmation letter.

We are at the calendar page and STILL we have not seen a field to enter the AA number. Update profile doesnt allow it either.

I know we have limited times to change schedule so I need help here before I click the appt date and time.

Any one?

I'm currently filling out the i-131 application for travel document for my wife, which I intend to file in conjunction with the i-485, i-765, and i-864.

The specific purpose we have for this document is we plan to travel back to China next year and do a "second wedding" there for her family and friends (we'd also just like the ability to travel elsewhere, like Mexico).

However, I've noticed on Page 4 of USCIS' i-131 instructions for the document, that the allowed purpose for this document appears to be limited to:


"travel abroad temporarily for urgent humanitarian reasons or in furtherance of a significant public benefit, which may include a personal or family emergency or bona fide business reasons"

Our wedding is a significant family reason, but it's not an "emergency" as stipulated in the USCIS instructions.

Furthermore, Page 9 of USCIS' i-131 instructions stipulate that:


If you are applying for:

c. Advance Parole Document for Individuals Who Are Currently in the United States

If you are in the United States, you must attach:

  1. (1) A copy of any document issued to you by USCIS showing your present status, if any, in the United States; and

  2. (2) An explanation or other evidence showing the circumstances that warrant issuance of an Advance Parole Document; or

  3. (3) If you are an applicant for adjustment of status, a copy of a USCIS receipt as evidence that you filed the adjustment application

(there are more options in the instructions, but they're not relevant to our case)

We can't produce (1) or (3) because we have nothing from USCIS showing my wife's present status. All we have from the USCIS are the NOA1 and NOA2 from months ago, which do not show my wife's "present status", which is in the US on a K1 visa. We have her I-94, but that's from CBP, not USCIS.

So it seems the only option remaining for us is (2), a written explanation. Does Page 3 Part 4 Item 1.a on the i-131 form itself satisfy this requirement (that's where they give you 4 blank lines to describe the "purpose of trip"). Or is a lengthier explanation required as an attachment?

I seem to recall earlier threads saying that a lengthier explanation was at one point required in the past, but is no longer required, at least for K1-to-AOS filers.

Would just like to make sure before we send everything in.

"Date of Arrival" on I-485: actual date, or date on I-94?
7:39 pm October 8, 2019

My wife entered the US on her K1 visa on Sep. 26, 2019 at 10:00 pm.

However, on her I-94 it says her date of entry is Sep. 27, 2019. I don't know if the BCP agent at the airport made a mistake, or if her entry was considered "after hours" and therefore listed as the following day.

In any case, I'm currently filling out the I-485 and Part 1 Item 21 asks for the "Date of Last Arrival".

I'd like to put "09/26/2019" since this is the correct answer, however I'm worried that since this date is different than the date on her I-94 this could lead to a problem.

Should I put "09/27/2019" in order to match the I-94, or should I put the correct date of "09/26/2019"?
