  1. Hi Guys, We are on the process of filing our petition for K1 only to find out that my F's adjusted income (as per his latest Income Tax Return) was below minimum income requirement of K1 visa. Just a quick facts about him: He's a Filipino by birth, son of a naturalized U.S citizen and he automatically became U.S citizen when he came to U.S at the age of 12. He is self-employed; resides in California, and doesn't have any dependents (children) yet. Here are my questions: 1. Is there any alternative option we can do to proceed with the petition? like joint sponsorship? We're planning to apply the K1 visa in Abu Dhabi since I'm currently residing in UAE. Will they accept it? 2. Is Beneficiary's birth certificate required to be included in the K1 packet or only upon interview? 3. On the Citizenship Information, will he tick Naturalization or U.S citizen parents? Aside from U.S passport, which document does he need to provide- Certificate of Naturalization or Certificate of Citizenship? Sorry for numerous questions but I hope someone can help us on our journey Thanks in advance.
  2. Hi! I'm quite confused with how I should proceed with booking the visa appointment at the Abu Dhabi embassy. The Abu Dhabi website (https://ais.usvisa-info.com/en-ae/iv) has the following option: I have received a letter from the consular section with instructions to register or schedule a K visa appointment. This is followed by some forms and a payment of $265. I have not received any such letter yet. However, my case status on CEAC (https://ceac.state.gov/ceacstattracker/status.aspx) has changed to READY 4 days ago. Dates from the CEAC site: Case Created: 20-Nov-2018 Case Last Updated: 13-Dec-2018 Should I keep waiting for a letter (packet 3?) from the embassy or can I go ahead and schedule an appointment on the website. Another concern of mine is that at no point in the K1 application did I ever provide my own email address as it was never asked. The DS-160 application was the only place I provided my own email. My petitioner was contacted via email when the I-129F was approved and transferred to NVC, but not me directly. Will packet 3 be emailed to the petitioner as well? Also, does the embassy physically mail any documents to the beneficiary (me) or is it email only now?
  3. Anyone here who just receive the packet 3? When is the latest appointment date available for interview?

  5. My wife is entering US for first time on CR1 visa, she will get Green card once she is in US. What should she write on customs declaration form for country of residence? Should it be India where she was born and where she has been living till now? or should it be USA where she intends to live from now on?
  6. Hello there, I'm currently residing here in Abu Dhabi, my Fiance and I have already applied for K-1 and our I-129F has been approved on November 28, 2017. As per instruction by the NVC, I will receive a notification or a mail on what to do next. I didn't receive one but my Fiance did on February 1, 2018 via his email. I was just wondering, Is it the same? Anyway we followed what is instructed there; I prepared all the needed documents, I already did my medical examination and I scheduled my interview appointment on April 3, 2018. So my interview appointment is already set, but until now I have not receive any mail/email/sms notification from the US Embassy here in Abu Dhabi, Will there be a problem? Thank you so much in advance.
  7. Hello, Does anyone know how long it takes on average to get your passport back after your visa is approved at the interview (Abu Dhabi embassy)? I'm planning a trip (not to US) approximately 10 days after the interview and need to figure out if that would work? Thanks!
  8. Hello, My wife (USC) and I (French Citizen) both work and live in Dubai. We want to start the CR1 process. In our application, will we be able to ask a different consulate to process the interview? We've heard that the Abu Dhabi consulate is very very busy and takes a long time to schedule interviews. Can I mention that I am a french national and would like the Paris consulate to handle my case? Thanks. Henry
