  1. This is a new question answer session that states the petitioner can not attend. https://m.facebook.com/videos/live/m/redirect/481908012443644/?_rdr
  2. They are currently not allowing petitioners in. I was there last week and was not allowed. This seems to have changed around the time of the recent events with Iran.
  3. Everyone who gets an NOA2 has met the basic paperwork requirements, yet some countries refuse many more visas than others. So country specific reviews and experiences are helpful.
  4. This forum is just people's advice based on their own experience. Myself and others have been denied without the officer looking at any evidence brought to the interview. Had it been in the file, at least there would have been a chance that it was seen. This happens in some countries more than others, so I think it is very wise to seek out country specific advice on these matters.
  5. I think it depends very much on what country you are dealing with. It is wise to look at the embassy reviews. Some places they will not look at evidence that you bring to the interview. In those cases it is definitely worthwhile to front load. Not much is required to get an approval from USCIS, but the embassy could be a different story. Look at your portal to find others going through Bosnia and their interview experience.
  6. This seems to be happening more often lately. I personally think it is in everyone's best interest to send more than just the letter of intent with the initial application to avoid this. When I got this RFE it specifically stated that I had sent the letters of intent, but they wanted other proof. I did resend the letters of intent but also included anything else I could. I explained that we can't make plans because we don't know when we can have the wedding and that our wedding discussions have occurred by video chat so my screenshots of messages were limited. I was able to find some messages referencing getting married or saying things like, "Let's talk about the wedding tonight." Also a few times that I sent him a link to a venue or other wedding related thing. I had already sent the wedding rings receipt and a picture of the dress that was made in his country, but I resent those as well. Explain whatever you can about your plans or things you have considered for your wedding and send anything you can to back it up. I think you will be fine.
  7. I didn't say anything about booking a venue. People are getting RFEs for intent to marry despite sending the usual letters. So I am recommending sending any additional proof of wedding discussions or plans that they have, such as receipts for rings or the dress or quotes from venues, etc. I'm not suggesting doing anything they weren't already doing, just send whatever proof they have. The OP asked about sending screenshots of their conversations, so I suggested conversations related to wedding planning, or future life plans together.
  8. I would recommend sending screenshots of conversations about wedding plans, as well as any other proof of intent to marry (receipts for any wedding related stuff or description of wedding plans) in addition to the usual letters of intent.
  9. Here was my reply to a similar question not too long ago. If things haven't changed, the beneficiary should receive an email from the embassy 3-4 weeks after the NVC forwarded the petition. You can go ahead and fill out the DS-160. We had actually scheduled the interview before getting the email from the embassy, because we didn't know there was an email coming. But you would definitely want confirmation that they have your case before actually going to an interview. You have to have an interview date before you are allowed to schedule the medical. Here is what the email from the embassy said. Hope this helps. We are pleased to inform you that our office has received the subject case from the National Visa Center to initiate the visa processing of this case.

  10. Does the I129f processing time depend on the beneficiary's country? I thought I've always read here that it doesn't matter. Is there any data on this? I've been curious if that info has been extracted from timelines.
  11. Oh my gosh, I mentioned Seychelles to you, I'm so excited it worked out! Congratulations! I love that place. Regarding the K1, you don't need to do anything, but if that makes you nervous, you can do a USCIS inquiry on the old petition and they will send you a response like this: The petition with receipt number WACxxxxxxxxxx was approved and was forwarded abroad to the United States Embassy/ Consulate for K-1 visa processing. Subsequently, the K-1 visa was not issued and the I-129F petition has been returned to the USCIS. Since the I-129F petition has been returned to the USCIS, all action on this petition is concluded and the petition will not be revalidated. For I-129F Consular return cases where the K-1 visa was not issued, the USCIS may not be issuing any further notification about the case to the petitioner. In this instance, the petitioner may choose to file a new Form I-129F, Petition for an Alien Fiancé(e), with fee.

  13. He didn't have any trouble getting the UAE visa. Actually, you might be able to fly through Qatar, which is now visa on arrival for Pakistani passports.
  14. Seychelles is visa on arrival with a Pakistani passport, and absolutely beautiful. I don't know the details on marrying there, but I don't think it's that difficult. My fiance and I have been there twice, but both times he did get a visa for UAE (for the connecting flight) because he was afraid they wouldn't let him on the plane in Islamabad without it. I think he was just a little paranoid, but we didn't want to take a chance. We're planning our next trip to Maldives which is also visa on arrival. I 100% agree with you that it's unfair to judge a K1 application differently in different countries. We plan to live in the US, where our relationship is totally normal, not Pakistan. But unfortunately it is what it is.
