Visa Waiver Program/ESTA question

Hi Everybody,

I had a question for those of you who have experience traveling on the Visa Waiver Program with an ESTA.

A friend of the family is from a country that participates in the Visa Waiver Program, and she is planning to travel to the U.S. within the next year or so. However she is currently in a third country on what was supposed to be a short trip but due to Covid/lockdown complications she s pretty much stuck there at the moment, and facing a visa overstay in that country. She has asked me if overstaying her visa in that third country could cause her any problems if she later tries to enter the U.S. using the VWP/ESTA.

As far as I am aware it shouldn t be an issue, but I know they do ask some eligibility questions for the ESTA. Anyway, I told her I would ask on here to get some feedback from those of you who might have more direct experience. We d appreciate any insights or advice. Thanks!

International Travel with extension letter

I know this has been asked a million times, but due to COVID, I am being extra careful.

We have a trip back home (international) planned for August. We just received the NOA1 for the I751. I called USCIS to see if I needed a stamp, but she was adamant that a stamp is only for expiring extension letters and that my info pass request will likely be denied because I don t need a stamp. I initially worried that biometrics won t be completed, but she reassured me that biometrics doesn t actually matter in regard to travel with the extension.

Has anyone traveled internationally since COVID started with their expired GC and extension letter? Any issues?

Thank you in advance

K-1 Questions

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?
