  1. Wanted to pop in and say hope you're doing well! We miss you 😊

      What happened? I am not often here, but noticed Greenbaum was not here. Really hope everythign is fine.

  2. We miss you in the forums! Hope you are having a good vacation 

  3. We have found many of the agents at SS have no idea how a K-1 who is wanting a SSN is to be processed. There is a forum here on VJ that outlines and has discussion. You may want to check that out and see what others are experiencing. We recommend that you get a SSN just after you arrive in the states; first week or two. Then after marriage return to SS and update your marriage with a name change. I wish you luck but don't give up.
  4. If you check ceac.state.gov and use "immigrate" for your visa type, you'll see the results which will tell you everything. I have detailed instructions in my PDF. Join us in the SEPTEMBER 2020 K-1 NOA2 to NVC to EMBASSY thread and download the PDF file on the first post of the first page for tips, tricks, and hacks to follow your case to the embassy. I'll post both links below: https://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/746671-september-2020-k-1-noa2-to-nvc-to-embassy/
  5. In Mexico you do need the letter from the consulate as the beneficiary will be asked for it at the medical, during biometrics, and at the consulate interview. In all cases also need it to get the Police certificate. You can move forward to fill out the DS-160 but wait to schedule the medical, biometrics and interview until you have the letter with you. For what I have read if the letter doesn't arrive you can ask for a copy in the Information Window in the consulate in Ciudad Juarez. Doing the Biometrics and Medical in Mexico City and only the Interview in Ciudad Juarez you do need to wait for the letter. There is additional information in the PDF link on the first page, first post. Good luck and stay engaged in the process.
  6. There are those of us like @payxibka who help hundreds if not thousand over the time we have been here. We don't have time to sit and figure out if our answer is going to make you feel better. We give you the facts straight away. We see it all the time, that people get their feelings hurt because we didn't answer them with information that would make them feel good. We will answer your question and if necessary, we will add links to find quantifiable information to help you. In the end, the information we give you, no matter what you think of the delivery, is going to answer your question and get you moving on the right track. What's wrong with that AND we do it as VOLUNTEERS. We don't have to be here, but we also don't have to be berated on how we deliver out information.
  7. I don't know the reasoning behind the embassy telling you not to complete the DS-160, Online Nonimmigrant Visa Application as it is a document that stands alone and is used for adjudicating purposes at the interview. They do not have access to it unless they have the barcode so it's up to you what you want to do. There are many who fill it out once they receive their case number from NVC and have had not one problem with their embassy. My advice is that you can do either fill it out or not fill it out. Neither will have a influence at the time of the interview. Keep in mind if there are any changes between now and the interview, you will have to create a new DS-160, Online Nonimmigrant Visa Application or update the added information at the interview.
  8. All addresses must be listed. The instructions for the I-129f, Petition for Alien Fiancé(e) states the following: Item Numbers 9.a. - 12.b. Your Address History. Provide the addresses for the places you have resided over the last five years.
  9. The forms can seem daunting and can cause confusion. First, read the question or entry instructions and take them literally. Don't try and guess what they want. If it asks for current mailing address, enter the address where you receive your mail. Where it asks for address history, enter each of the address in the order they specify. Use the guides from the blue ribbon. Go to the blue ribbon above, select "guides" then "immigration guides" scroll down and select the K-1. Select "guides if you are engaged": and select ----- K1 Fiancé Visa Guide.
  10. Looking at the tabs in the blue ribbon on the top of this page indicates to me that there is a "forums" tab. I'd look there first since you are looking for a thread in the AOS sub-forum.
  11. Use your corporate address for the temp agency as they are your employer.
  12. There is no such thing as P 2.5. What is recognized is a P3 and P4. Most embassies use P3 when communicating interview instructions. From NVC you will get a case number but again no P2.5.
  13. Choose the embassy as your choice for now and change it at the interview.
  14. Links to P3 and Embassy instructions https://drive.google.com/file/d/1fcBNK7qttjga9p-fTkJ0HSqhrc1hES_T/view?usp=sharing
  15. The K-1 process is quite strange. For a time, it is both a non-immigrant and immigrant visa type. That is why the links (what you received in the email) will send you the process for immigrant which would be the I-864 and DS-260 even though it truly is a non-immigrant visa requiring I-134 and the DS-160. As you go through the stages, within the NVC system you look up your file under immigrant (ceac.state.gov/). It stays that way until after your interview and the approval and your visa is ready for issue. At that point, it changes over to non-immigrant. It truly is a non-immigrant visa with immigrant intent. So, when they communicate with you, your record is flagged as an "immigrant" visa and all their communication templates are designed for the immigration visas. Hence, that is why you received correspondence with the "immigrant" themed "template" answer. So, there you have it.
