DS160 - Previous U.S. Travel Information Question
4:58 pm yesterday



Read 87 Times
7 Replies


I am in the process of filling up the DS160 form (K1 applicant / beneficiary here) and I have a question regarding the "Previous U.S. Travel Information" part.

First, I cannot retrieve the exact dates of my first ever trip to the US 13 years ago (all the other trips since, I have documentation), which was for a language exchange when I was 16. The form does not let you just put Month and Year. What should I do? I don't want to put in false information.

Other question, for that same 2006 trip, there was no ESTA yet and I had to apply for a Visa. Obviously, I don't remember nor have any documentation on this Visa number, the exact date it was issued etc... But this is required for the "Have you ever been issued a U.S. Visa?" question. It was the one and only time I had to travel to the US with a Visa, as just a few years later the ESTA system was put into place. What should I do? Do you think the Consulate in Paris (where I applied at the time) would have this in their records?

Thank you in advance for your help!

F4 beneficiary

I am a USC who petitioned for my sister back in 2010. Even though my sister was (still is) married I did not include her husband in the petition. I did include her little daughter (my niece) though.

Questions: 1) When their visa number becomes current, can her husband be added as my sister s beneficiary?

2) When their visa number becomes current and sister decides not to proceed (changes her mind for not to immigrate), can her daughter still proceed and immigrate on her own, without mother?

Desperate after 5 years here...

So I have been married for 5 years and living here. Over a year ago, when I got my passport stamp I551 while waiting for my Green Card, the officer at USCIS said ' you should be getting it in the next 3 months, nothing to do on your end'. Flash forward to a month ago when I called the 1.800 number realizing my stamp was about to expire and and they give me an appt to get a third stamp! They also mentioned they sent me a letter back in December 2018??!! I Told them I never got it they looked and said ' Oh yeah you changed your address 1 month after we sent it, let me have a copy of that letter sent to you to your updated address'.

I finally received it... They sent it asking me for even more evidence that my mariage was in good faith!? (I already did send a whole bunch of documents and affidavits 2 years ago when they asked for the same kind of things)... And so all the documents have to be provided by March 10th 2019... 7 months ago... And it does mention that my case was time sensitive and failure to do so may get me denied! As I look at that letter and realize it s my failure to change my address in time, I also realize they sent it to my very 1st address in the USA, which has been void for 4 years now. It should have been sent to my 2 nd address (I currently live at my 3rd address). So regardless of my late last change, they still sent that letter to a very old void address. On top of all this, I am now separated and in the middle of my divorce papers (not final yet). So the whole situation is that I am 7 months late for providing more evidence that I married my wife in good faith AND I am now about to be divorced. I don't think there s much hope left. I just saw a lawyer who told me I should re file the whole thing once my divorce is final as a divorced man. Regardless, being 7 months late is what scares me. I keep feeling like someone is going to barge in my house and send me back to France... Just trying to see if someone has something to help with this on here. ?

Moving while waiting for GC interview

Hey everyone,

This might be a long shot but I'm just looking to see if anyone had a similar experience (mostly because it's stressing me out).

A couple of days ago I got an email from USCIS saying they scheduled my GC interview. I expect the notice to come in the mail soon.

My husband and I will me moving from Manhattan to Brooklyn at the end of October, at which point our interview may or may not have been scheduled.

I am hoping we will be able to go to the interview before we move because I am scared of what's gonna happen if they transfer our file to the BK office. I'm scared our file will be lost or will be put at the back of the waiting line.

Anyone experienced this? How long was the wait after your file was transferred to another field office and the interview rescheduled ?

Is filing the AR-11 when you move enough once you have an interview date or do you need to contact the field office too ?

Thanks !
