  1. Greetings everyone. So, my fiancé lives in the UK. We have submitted our petition February 22, 2022. We sent our petition to the one in Texas. I know this will take a while and I was trying to see if tourist visa would be a wise option. Can she still apply for a tourist visa while we wait on the NOA2 for our fiancé visa? Is anyone in the same situation as we are? If so, please lay down any information that may be of help to us. Thank you all so much and we wish you all the best.
  2. Hello! I am new here with a quick question. I submitted my fiancés K1 visa petition 10.5 months ago, impatiently waiting for an RFE. I've been hearing some cases are approved without an additional RFE. However, I do need to make a couple updates to my I-129F petition and thought I could do so when I submit my RFE. Anyone had any experience with this and know what I could expect? Thanks in advance!
  3. Hope someone can help with this - our case has been in ready status at the London Embassy since May 27th. I have filled in the DS-160 and keep trying to book my interview and it keeps giving me the following message attached. Very annoying since the status says it’s ‘ready’ - like many others on this group I have not received a letter from the US embassy telling me to go ahead a book the interview. All I have is a letter from the NVC with my LND case number. Not really sure what to do from here. Thanks in advance.
  4. Hello everyone, We're a couple consisting of an American woman and an Egyptian man; we're currently trying to figure out the optimal way in terms of time and legality to get married and reside in the United States. We've done our research regarding the K1 and CR1. It does seem like the K1 could be our best option. Getting married in Egypt and then applying for a CR1 is not an option because of the absence of civil marriage in the Middle East along with other legal challenges (notary appointments, etc.) that would make it difficult to achieve or would take several months before we even get to file the CR1 paperwork, making the K1 actually faster. The problem with the K1 is the period of time spent not being able to work after getting into the U.S, as it could take up to a year if we’re unlucky. So, after searching more, we found out that there are ways to get married on a tourist visa by getting the foreign partner into the US on a tourist visa and then either: Get married after 90 days and then apply for Adjustment of Status and overstay until we get the interview for the CR1. Get married almost immediately after getting into the US and then leave the country on the specified departure date. Wait a few months (90 days?), and then apply for the CR1. Even though the first option would get us together faster, we’re not sure if it’s actually completely legal or not, and it possibly has the same issue of not having a work permit during the period we wait for the CR1 interview. Meanwhile, the second option sounds more doable since the foreign partner can work immediately after entering the US, but we’re still not sure if the USCIS would deny the application because we would have gotten married on a tourist visa or if that would be legal in the first place. We're hoping someone who has done something similar before (getting married on a tourist visa) could help us decide if that's even a legal option or not. Thank you!
  5. Hello all! I submitted my documents in the middle of April and it's late June haven't received a NOA1 I see alot of others got there's a few days to a week later and I'm wondering what should be done about this. I sent it to the lockbox in Dallas. I see the check has been cashed at least thank you all
  6. Me and my girlfriend feel that our relationship isn't the most "normal" and we worry about how strong our proof of relationship/marriage will be for either K1 or CR1 respectively (we are unsure about whether to do K1 or CR1 but leaning towards CR1) We already know that we want to get married and will do either K1 visa or CR1 visa depending on whichever one is most likely to be accepted for our case. We have known each other for 6 months, 2 online and 4 months in person living in the same house together 24/7 and never being separated once. Since I was in the UK without a visa, I left before it got too close to the 6 month deadline, worried about my ability for future UK visits given her ESTA was denied at Port of Entry when trying to visit me in the US (treated as immigrant without visa, no strong ties to UK) We always had marriage in mind as an end goal for our relationship when we got into it in the first place, always kind of treated one another like a husband and wife, and after 6 months of our relationship together none of that has changed in the slightest. Due to this amongst other factors of only knowing each other for a short time, not having many pictures together, not going out on dates much mainly staying at home, not getting along with her family for pictures and not being able to meet my family for pictures due to her ESTA denial , her being 18 me being 25, not wanting to go into much detail about how and why we met (personal reasons), etc. we worry how our relationship would look like for a K1 visa, thinking that CR1 visa might look stronger. If we did marry online then met up for consummation purposes basically right now and submitted the CR1 visa asap, would our case be strong enough to be approved, or would it be stronger to not marry and submit the evidence we have (some pictures together, spending money on one another, living together for 4 month despite not having easy legal ways to prove that, letters from family recognizing relationship, call logs, chat history on discord, and whatever else evidence we can put together) for K1 visa?
  7. Hello good day! I'm a K1 visa filer here in Abu Dhabi, our case in ceac is already "ready" since April 28. But we didn't receive any e-mail from the embassy or the packet 3. Does anyone had tried to set an interview appointment without the packet 3? And interviewed with the embassy successfully?
  8. Hello everyone, We filed/mailed out a k1 visa application on 3/18/2022 and it was received on 3/22/2022. The payment was cashed on 3/24/2022. We have no heard anything at all. Is it normal that we haven't even received notication that the application was received? I recall reading somewhere on the USCIS site that usually receipt notication is sent within 30 days. Should we reach out to USCIS? Thank you
  9. Can I sponsor my fiancé even if I have been claimed as dependent on my parents tax return.
  10. NOTE: For an overview of the entire K-1 Fiance Visa process, please see the K-1 Fiance Visa Flowchart. What is a K-1 Fiance Visa? A K-1 Visa (also known as a Fiance Visa) is a nonimmigrant visa Visa issued to the fiancé(e) of a United States citizen. The K-1 Visa allows the visa holder to enter the United States for up to 90 days during which time they may get married and file for Adjustment of Status (to obtain a "green card" and become a Legal Permanent Resident of the US). After filing for Adjustment of Status they may reside in the US beyond the 90 day K-1 Visa validity while their Adjustment of Status application is processed. While the K-1 Visa is legally classified as a non-immigrant visa, it usually leads to important immigration benefits and is therefore often processed by the Immigrant Visa section of United States Embassies and Consulates worldwide. If the non US Citizen fiancé(e) has a child (under 21 and unmarried), a K-2 non-immigrant visa may be available to him or her. Be sure to include the names of the children on the I-129F petition. Who is Eligible to File? U.S. citizens who will be getting married to a foreign national in the United States may petition for a fiancé(e) classification (K-1) for their fiancé(e). You and your fiancé(e) must be free to marry. This means that both of you are unmarried, or that any previous marriages have ended through divorce, annulment or death. You must also have met with your fiancé(e) in person within the last two years prior beginning the K-1 Visa petition process (filing the I-129F). This requirement can be waived only if meeting the non US Citizen's fiancé(e) in person would violate long-established customs, or if it would create extreme hardship on the US Citizen. Forms Needed to File for a K-1 Fiance Visa: 1. I-129F 2. G-1145 (optional) The above forms can be filled out on your computer and printed. Make sure you sign and date them as required. Anything you cannot fit by typing, you can handwrite (very neatly) in black ink in the blank instead. You should always verify the current forms at www.uscis.gov. Assembling the I-129F Package: Checklist Forms and Documents (follow these assembly instructions. All supporting documents must be in English or be translated as noted here.): 1. Payment as required by USCIS. Use a personal check so you can track the payment. Money Orders are also accepted. Read the Guide to Paying USCIS Immigration Fees. 2. Cover Letter (see example). Should include a description of what your are petitioning for (I-129F), a table of contents (list everything in the packet). If you need additional room to explain your case, attach a separate sheet (list the attachment on the cover sheet). Make sure to sign and date the cover sheet. 3. Form I-129F: Petition for Alien Fiance (see example) 4. Original statements (from both the US Citizen and foreign fiance) certifying an intent to marry within 90 days of entering the US on a valid K-1. (see example) 5. Proof of having met in past two years. To organize this information you can create a single typed page with the following elements: (1) Title the page 'Evidence of In-Person Meeting in the last 2 years'; (2) A description of how you met (same as you stated in Part 2 Question 53-54 of your I-129F); (3) A list of the evidence you are providing; (4) Your printed name, signature and date. Following this declaration page, provide the evidence you listed (click here for examples). 6. One passport-type photo (see specification) of the US Citizen. Write the full name of the US citizen on the back. Place in a plastic bag and label the bag "Photo of <Insert US Citizen's Name>". Attach the bag to a sheet of paper and place behind the corresponding I-129F. 7. One passport-type photo (see specification) of the foreign fiance. Write the full name of the foreign fiance on the back. Place in a plastic bag and label the bag "Photo of (insert foreign fiance name) ". Attach the bag to a sheet of paper and place behind the corresponding I-129F. 8. Copy of the Birth certificate (front and back) for the US Citizen or a copy of ALL pages of the US Citizen's passport issued with a validity of at least 5 years or a copy of the US Citizen's naturalization certificate (front and back). This is used to establish citizenship. 9. Copy of final Divorce Decree(s) or Certificate(s) for the US Citizen and/or foreign fiance if either has been previously married. If the previous marriage of the US Citizen and/or foreign fiance ended due to the death of their spouse then include a Copy of Death Certificate(s) documenting that fact. 10. Proof of Legal Name Change if either the US Citizen and/or foreign fiance is using a name other than that shown on the relevant documents. You must give USCIS copies of the legal documents that made the change, such as a marriage certificate, adoption decree or court order. 11. In regards to Part 3 of the I-129F, if applicable provide certified copies of all court and police records showing the charges and dispositions for any specified conviction(s) (in accordance with the IMBRA). See Part 3 of the I-129F instructions for more information. Documentary Proof of Having Met in Person in the Past Two Years and an Ongoing Relationship: Use as many of these items are possible. There is no minimum, but the more you can provide the less likely you are that you will receive an RFE. Additionally, please note that providing proof of your ongoing and genuine relationship in this package may benefit you by allowing the consulate to have access to this information prior to them formally contacting the non US Citizen fiance. Many high risk consulates approach cases with a skeptical eye and providing this information early on in the original I-129F package will help them in their preliminary review of your case. 1. Copies of all airline boarding passes, train passes, itineraries, hotel receipts, passport stamps (make sure you can read the dates on the stamps), and other documentary evidence that you have met within the last two years. You may want to highlight or place post-it notes indicating the dates and locations on the copies (to make the adjudication easier) for the person reviewing your file. 2. Color Photo's of you and your fiance together. Make sure you write your names, date, and location on the back of every photo. Provide two to five photo's. If you only have a single copy of the photo, then make a color copy and send that. If it is a digital photo, have it printed at a local photo store such as Walgreens (if at all possible) or if not on a high quality printer. Place photo's in a plastic bag or photo sheet and label the sheet. Note that you may not receive originals of photo's back. 3. The following items will not typically show proof of having met in the last two years however will show proof of an ongoing relationship: Copies of land line and cell phone bills, appropriate letters and emails, stamps on the letters (to document the date they were sent), and other written documentary proof. Provide a reasonable amount; two to four of each type. Pick a range of dates up to and including the present. You can also include a copy of engagement ring receipt (this is something that is a big optional - do not worry if you do not have a ring yet!) Attach "E-Notification" Form (Optional) Clip a completed G-1145, E-Notification of Application/Petition Acceptance, to the first page of your application (on top of the cover page). By completing this form and attaching it, USCIS will send you an email and/or text message to alert you when your application was received. Mail the I-129F Package to the USCIS You should mail the completed form(s) to the USCIS Dallas Lockbox. Mail the package with return receipt requested / delivery confirmation. Send via USPS. IMPORTANT! Make TWO copies of the entire package before you send it in. This includes the money orders too. You want to have a perfect replica of the package you are sending in. All Forms that you submit must be originals with original signatures. Supporting Evidence that you submit may be photocopies. Retain ALL original supporting Evidence since the USCIS has the right to check them by issuing an RFE (Request For Evidence). If you receive an RFE, follow the direction exactly, and make two copies of what you sent back. During any future interviews the USCIS may also want to examine the original supporting evidence. Create a VJ Timeline Estimate processing time and approval date: Creating a VJ Timeline will allow you to track your case and will generate an estimated approval date for your petition. You can always gain access to many other tools to help you plan how long your Visa Journey will take! What to send to your fiance once the I-129F is approved (Receive NOA2): 1. A copy of the entire I-129f package (that you made when you sent the petition in) and a copy of information that you sent back due to an RFE (if you received one). Your fiance should review this information in advance of the interview (the embassy will have copies of this as well). 2. Send copies of the documentary proof that you submitted with the I-129F for your fiance to have on hand for their interview at the embassy. Your fiance should review this information in advance of the interview (the embassy will have copies of this as well). 3. Send an original letter affirming your desire to marry your fiance and your continued support of the K-1 Visa. Sign and date the form. This will be similar to the letter you provided with the I-129F, but dated much closer to the interview (it will have most likely been several months since you submitted your I-129F). 4. I-134 Affidavit of Support form. Ensure it is signed, with all required supporting evidence. Begin collecting the required information ahead of time, as it can often take several weeks to collect it all. 5. You will need several items (for the above form). Gather duplicate evidence of income and resources as appropriate: (A) Statement from an officer of the bank/financial institution with your deposits, identifying the following: 1. date account opened; 2. total amount deposited for the past year; 3. present balance (B) Statement(s) from your employer on business stationary showing: 1. Date and nature of employment; 2. salary paid; 3. whether position is temporary or permanent (also include copies of your last two pay stubs and your previous W-2 for the associated employer if available) (C) If Self Employed: 1. Copy of last income tax return filed (or IRS transcripts); or 2. report of commercial rating concern (D) List containing serial numbers and denominations of bonds and name of record owner(s). Begin collecting these ASAP after your NOA2 arrives. See this FAQ for more tips and useful information on the Affidavit of Support Form. 6. A copy of the NOA2 that you received in the mail. (backup information; the embassy will have copies of this as well) 7. Proof of your ongoing relationship. This needs to be taken to the interview! Include photos, travel documents, emails, online chat logs (pick several over the prior few months), etc.. from between the time you filed and present (NOA1 until date-now). Examples: Copies of land line and cell phone bills, appropriate emails and letters you have sent including the stamps on envelopes (to document the date they were sent), and other written documentary proof. Provide a reasonable amount; two to four of each type. Pick a range of dates up to and including the present. You can also include a copy of engagement ring receipt (this is something that is a big optional - do not worry if you do not have a ring yet!) NOTE: Tip Regarding Vaccination Records The K-1/2 beneficiary will be required by the embassy to have a "medical" done prior to the visa interview. Part of this interview will require that previous vaccinations are documented and potentially additional required vaccinations performed. Once this is complete the doctor will note this on a DS-3025 form that will be sent to the embassy. During the medical appointment request an official copy of the vaccination records from the physician (or a copy of the completed DS-3025 if they will give it to you) as this will be helpful to have on hand in the future (specifically it can be helpful when filing for Adjustment of Status if your DS-3025 form is not available). After the K-1 Fiance Visa is Approved: Upon entering the US on a K-1 Visa, the visa holder must get married to the original I-129F sponsor (for the K-1 Visa) within 90 days. If the marriage does not take place within 90 days or the K-1 Visa holder marries someone other than the original US Citizen who petitioned for them, the K-1 Visa holder will be required to leave the United States. Until the marriage takes place, the K-1 visa holder is considered a non-immigrant. A non-immigrant is a foreign national seeking to temporarily enter the United States for a specific purpose. A K-1 Visa holder can not obtain an extension of the 90-day time limit. If the K-1 Visa holder intends to live and work permanently in the United States they should apply to become a permanent resident after the marriage. Please note, K-1 Visa holder will receive a "green card" and conditional permanent residence status for two years. Conditional permanent residency is granted when the marriage is less than two years old at the time the Adjustment of Status application is processed. Note: A K-1 Visa holder can enter the United States only one time with this visa. Upon entry, the K-1 visa is cancelled, and an Electronic I-94 is issued upon entry and becomes the controlling document. If the K-1 entrant leaves the U.S. before marriage to the original petitioner, re-entry into the U.S. might not be allowed without a new visa. Also, if the K-1 entrant has applied for and is waiting on approval of an Adjustment of Status petition, the K-1 entrant should not leave the U.S. without also having applied for and received approved Advance Parole -- doing so could result in the inability to re-enter the U.S., and it indicates abandonment of the petition for Adjustment of Status. (Note that even approved Advance Parole does not guarantee re-entry into the U.S.)
  11. I attended my green card interview on 2/8/21 which was about 3 months ago. The officer in Hartford gave me a form that showed I supplied everything needed but they still need to hold the case because the officer could not locate my medical files, which he was supposed to have from the embassy. No updates for 3 months. I have submitted inquiries online and mailed letters for updates but no response. My work permit expires 6/1/21 in less than 30 days. I mailed a work permit renewal 1 month ago and no response. I don't have money for a lawyer. I don't want to lose my job. The situation seems so bizarre. What should I do?
  12. Hello I will be having a k1 visa interview in Jordan, They asked for certain documentation to be sent 1week prior to interview they did not ask for the I-129F petition. Should I bring a folder of all documents with me to the interview or would what they asked for to send would be enough. I guess my question is what should I take with me to interview.?
  13. Hello! I wanted to know if there's any way to file for a K1 visa while the US citizen is living outside of the US? For example with a company like rapidvisa or any other?
  14. I think it would be helpful to tell my experience to those people who still have lot of doubts or questions about the interview in Naples, Italy (K1 VISA). FIRST DAY: I arrived to the ISTITUTO DIAGNOSTICO VARELLI for the medical exam around 7:40 am and I had already 8 people in front of me waiting, so I suggest to arrive probably around 7:30 and not at 8:00 like the Consulate suggested. I had the blood tests, urine, the chest X-ray and all the vaccines required. At the end they asked me questions like: "do you smoke?" "did you ever had surgery?" "do you have kids?", basically they just wanna know something about you, it was really smooth. I spent 271 Euros for the visit (and not 220), because I forgot the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella). (They will ask you the pictures 5x5 so don't forget to bring them with you at the visit and of course, the passport). SECOND DAY: My appointment was at 9:30 am, I arrived at 9:00 but I had to wait in line for awhile ( I guess they don't let you in if you arrive too early). I was really nervous but I was trying to appeare normal so I went inside. Two girls asked me if I had all the documents required, such as the DS 160, birth certificate, criminal records, affidavit of support and the pictures (5x5), after checked all the documents they asked me to sit and wait my number. After a few minutes it was my turn and the woman (she was italian) asked me the copy of the payment of the request fee (225 Euros), the DS 160, birth certificate, criminal records, the pictures (5x5), my fiance's tax return and Affidavit of Support. Unfortunately my fiancèe didn't have enough income so she asked if I had a JOINT SPONSOR and lucky for me I was prepared for this. We asked to my fiancèe's dad to help us so I brought with me all his documents and she accepted them. She asked me to sit and wait for the interview with the console. The lady who interviewed me was really, really nice. She was speaking in italian but she had the american accent. I spoke in english the whole time but I guess you can choose. She asked me: - How did you met your fiancèe? - How many times you visit him? - You ever met his family? Does he ever met yours? - What's his job? What's yours? - Why you want to get married in the US? - How did he propose? - Have you ever been married before? - Can you show me some photos? I brought 45 pictures of us, so she was satisfied. Of course I had other proves like chat logs, screenshots, tickets, cards but she didn't care. The photos were enough. I think these are the usual questions for a K1 Visa. But at the end of the conversation she said "YOUR VISA HAS BEEN APPROVED. WELCOME TO THE UNITED STATES". I was so happy that I wanted to cry! Well, THAT WAS REEEEALLY EASY. The only advice I can give you is: don't be nervous. I know its hard not to be but if you have all the documents everything's gonna be alright. DON'T FORGET TO MAKE COPIES OF ALL YOUR DOCUMENTS. Good luck guys!
  15. Hi there My I-129 form was approved in October of last year, the case is ready, was already received by consulate office at Dominican Republic, I already fill the DS-160 and pay the fee. I can not schedule my appointment because I need more time in the Dominican Republic because I’m a doctor and trying to get my license and this process take 1 year I already did 3 moths. My question is how many time can I reschedule my appointment or I can request an extension with the consul? Thanks!!
  16. Quick Introduction - I’ve applied for a K1 visa (NOA1 on 5th April 2021) No signs of NOA2 so far. Tried submitting two inquiries, all generic responses. So, my plan is to do a masters there by next year spring/fall (considering I get K1 visa by July) I realised I won’t get my EAD until 2023 mid (I’m considering worse case scenario) and I cannot apply for any kind of college jobs which could reduce my tuition fees. Thinking about all this, we were wondering if we could withdraw K1 visa and apply for a student instead. Is there any consequences to it since I have an intent to immigrate? Has anyone done this?
  17. Hello Everyone, I’m new to the group here. My partner and I are new to this K1 visa process and this is my first time posting on a forum like this. If possible, I was hoping someone could please provide some additional advice. I sent our I-129F application on 12/14/21. About it week later it was sent back to me on due to a missing signature in part 5 6a. This was a mistake on my behalf for missing. Outside of this mistake, I believe we have everything we need according to the checklist. I was hoping to resend the same application that we used but was wondering if this will still be accepted because each page is stamped at the bottom. If it’s best for us to re-print everything and resend it, would be acceptable for partner who is overseas to use the copies of her translated birth certificate forms? In reviewing further, I also realized that each of our letters of intent to marry do not have a subject line which states “letter of intent to marry”. Although the content of the letter is indicated, does the subject line need to be included? My last question is, if we ended up needing just rewrite the letters of intent to marry, do we need to have hand written signature or can it be an electronic signature made on the computer or iPad? Thank you, Jason
  18. Hi All! I'm currently going through the K1 Visa process, I've been approved and already I have my interview next month. I will likely be moving to the US in the spring if all goes with at my interview. I was curious if I would be able to work right away after receiving my marriage certificate and before applying for AOS. I received my social security number when I was a student on F1 Visa that has the legend "Valid to Work Only with DHS Authorization". (see attachment for example) Does the process change for me? What do I have to do to remove the "Valid to Work Only with DHS Authorization" condition on my SSN? I'm just trying to prepare myself before I move so I can complete all the correct paperwork and do it efficiently for myself. All responses are appreciated!
  19. Hey guys, I had my interview 10th Nov and I was refused due to AP. Since then, my CEAC status changed from Refused to Application Received within the last 2-4 days. As per usual, the page says to check after 2 business days but I have a feeling it will take a little longer. Is anyone else going through the same or Has anyone been through the same?
  20. Hello! Anyone know what's needed for UK to USA travel regarding 1) pre-departure Covid 19 test and 2) Covid vaccine proof? My English fiance hopefully will be coming to US on K1 next month. Thanks!
  21. Hi guys, I am new to this forum. I am in a process of preparing to file a petition to sponsor my fiance on the K-1 visa. After doing some research, I am a bit confused about the evidence we need to send along the form. There are some sources saying that we are supposed to provide information regarding our wedding like cards, announcements, confirmation of wedding services etc. while others do not. So, I really need to ask whether or not we must plan for our wedding before filing the form. Thank you for your time
  22. Hello everyone, Our petition for the K-1 Visa has left the NVC and is now with the US embassy in Cairo. I keep checking the application status on the CEAC website and this is what it has looked like for the past month (see attached picture). It indicates that the last update was yesterday (October 28th), however the information does not seem to have changed. I am not sure how to move forward at this point. Should I reach out to the embassy? Or Should I wait for them to send me Packet 3? Also for those who have received a Packet 3 - is it sent through the post as a physical package or is it sent via e-mail? I assume that either way it would be sent to the beneficiary, correct?

  24. Hello. My Fiance tried to come visit me but they denied her entry at LAX. They believed she was coming to marry me even though we just intended to have a visit. Anyhow, In her passport they stamped "Refused in accordance with INA section 217 R27041" On her form I-877 it says she was inadmissible to the US by INA Section 212 (a) (7) (A) (i) (I). Then the officer told her she will be refused entry under visa waiver program pursuant to Title 8 CFR Section 217.4 (a) (1). She received no other paperwork nor any other stamps. She asked if it was a deportation and they said no. Will this require an appeal? Is this a 5 year bar? I asked 2 immigration lawyers so far and both said no. I would like to know what some people here think or have experienced. Thank you so much.
  25. Hello, hoping someone could help. My husband and I have been married for almost two years. His resident green card expires next year so I’m just wanting to get some information as to what forms need to filed in order to get his 10 year green card? Any help will be much appreciated
