  1. That's what I thought. There is only one other person from the Seattle area that filed in September that also had their interview already. I am also expecting my interview to be around Christmas this year, but hopefully I get lucky too. My status has not changed on the app since I filed, not even after boimetrics. I did however receive an email notice on December 10th that the last status update to my case was made on November 26th. Do not know what that even means.
  2. @KatziGuthmann was your application expidited? I'm much more in the dark about the green card, EAD, and AP process than I was with the initial I-129F filing. I guess it's cause this application is field office specific. We share the same field office, Seattle. In fact my husband and I live down the road from the office (so lucky:) In any case it seems that you filed about 15 days before us. If that's the case, is there reason to think that I'll have my interview soon as well? Also to everybody here, is there a way to do a search for those people/profiles on VJ who have gone to interviews at a specific field office?
  3. I'm just curious how we are already seeing some interviews scheduled. Other than last time around when I followed the September and preceding groups quite closely, I don't have my finger on the pulse so well. So I'm uber confused, but happy for those who have interviews scheduled. Looks like some of these cases won't even need EAP/AP cards cause the green card will precede it? 🤔
  4. I struggled to no end with SSA and on two occasions either my case was updated on SAVE or an action was taken to initiate another level of verification, both times coincidentally the day after I call.
  5. Wait, I'm so confused. So from filing to green card interview is less than three months? How does that even make sense? You would have a green card before the EAD even gets processed.
  6. Has anybody had difficulty in opening a bank account or a delay in getting a SSN? I applied for a SSN the day after I arrived and was told it could take 4 weeks to verify my identity. Then when I called my local SSA office this week, they told me they have to submit additional documents to DHS so it will take a further two weeks. I was so disappointed. It's my understanding that you can't open a bank account without a SSN. Am I correct?
  7. Getting ready to send our package by tomorrow. Good to see some familiar names on here from last years September i-129F filing group. Here we go again!
  8. How can you be so sure? We are just worried it will create a problem with CBP.
  9. Hi, I am a K1 visa beneficiary. I am flying out to the US with my finance next Monday August 27th from Seoul to Seattle. This evening I discovered that the address we are going to be staying at in the US is wrong on the approved i-129F. I also took the wrong address to the medical exam, which means the same wrong address is also on my medical papers. Neither of us caught the mistake before, during, or immediately after the interview. This is because we both have lived overseas in Korea we are returning to my fiance's sister's address and so its not an address he has ever lived at so we didn't realize we transposed two numbers i the street number. All the numbers are there they are just written in the wrong order. SO: Right now I have my visa in my passport. I have the packet to hand to the CBP officer in Seattle. We made a mistake, and obviously wouldn't want to make more mistakes by knowingly giving CBP a wrong address. Please HELP us. What should we do? Right now we are already going to call the Embassy on Tuesday morning (since its Monday night where we are). What else could we do? Anybody made a similar mistake before? Any help or feedback would be so helpful.
  10. @Greenbaum Thanks for the swift response. I looked at the instructions for form i-485 and cannot find section 7c that states all that K1 applicants need is the vaccination record. I do understand though why you are suggesting I add it since some adjudicators might be confused. I just cannot seem to find the section in the instructions.
  11. Hey all! We went for the visa interview yesterday in Seoul, South Korea and was approved. My fiancé was there with me and the interview itself took about 5mins. I'll post more detail on my timeline. I do have a question though. My fiancé and I both live and work in South Korea. I know the visa is valid for six month from the date of the medical. I also know that we have to get married within the first 90 days of entering the US. That's no problem since we have set September 8 as our wedding day. That's less than two weeks after POE. My question is about AOS. Do I have to file for adjustment of status before the medical runs out on October 11th to not have to repeat the medical? Right now my vaccination worksheet says that I voluntarily completed all the required vaccinations. That should be enough not to do another medical in the States right? We are obviously trying to save as money as possible by planning ahead. Any insights would be appreciated. Thanks all!
  12. John, I don't know much but to my knowledge, if the CO kept the passports he/she expected to issue the visa based on the information submitted for the 221G request. And if the only issue was the name on the birth certificate based on what you said, then maybe this is a mistake? Maybe call the embassy and ask them why CEAC says denied.
  13. That's fantastic news. Hope you guys will write about her experience in a bit more detail at some point. What questions did they ask her?
  14. Good luck you guys. I look forward to hearing how I went. Our interview is also at 7:45AM but on May 1st.
  15. Omg I went for my medical on 4/11 and today is 4/13 and my arm is still sore from the shots.
