  1. I’m from Ohio and my fiancé is from Canada. He is moving to the states. Since him visiting me can interfere with the K1 Fiancé Visa process… would I be able to visit him in Canada?
  2. I started a new job, making around 40k, not including my other income, I have a co-sponsor (whose been working for the past few years) who makes around 40k. Can I just use my income, or should I also use my co-sponsor for my AOS? I'm currently waiting to get a interview reschedule due to lockdowns. Also to add, interview will be in Sydney, Australia.
  3. I am an American citizen living and working in Maryland, and my fiancé is a Portuguese citizen, and we are working towards his K-1 visa. On May 5, 2021, my fiancé had his K-1 visa interview in Paris (as the U.S. Embassy in his home country of Portugal closed due to COVID-19). After the interview, the interviewer told my fiancé that they had everything they needed for the time being aside from his medical exam results, which were being mailed from Portugal due to the exam documents not being ready by his interview date. Still, the consular took his paperwork & his passport and instructed him that this would all be mailed to his home address in Portugal once the visa was processed/approved. We haven't heard anything since. We have reached out multiple times to the Embassy (via online contact form, phone, emails to the embassy at multiple email addresses relating to visa processing -- such as ParisIVProcessing, ParisVisas, etc.), but neither ourselves nor our immigration attorneys have received any clear update as to what exactly is going on with our case and his visa. After months of trying and failing to get an update about our case from the U.S. Embassy in Paris, earlier this month I called the National Visa Center, which was able to confirm from their end that the U.S. Embassy in Paris has received all of the required documents for his case (they said his medical exam arrived about mid-May). The NVC was unable to give me further details and told me to call the U.S. Embassy in Paris. I called the Embassy’s Non-immigrant visa appointment line a few weeks ago (the only way I could reach someone, as there is no one I could get in touch with specifically for inquiring about visa issues), and the appointment line representative told me to check the status of our visa on ceac.state.gov. However, nothing showed up (just said "No Status" for our case). I called the Non-immigrant visa number again, and I was given a new email address to contact (fae_contactus+fr+courier+en@visaops.net) and told to explain our situation in a message and that they might be able to help more. Upon my initial correspondence (about two & a half weeks ago), I received an automatic reply that my message had been received, and then the next message I received (about a day after the first) was an apology for the inconvenience and said our case had been escalated to the appropriate department. However, I received another email shortly after that stating they had no information/updates that they could give me. I received another response last week (July 19) from that same email address saying that on May 25, the status of my fiancé’s visa was updated to "Refused", but they said that this “can also mean that the Embassy is still processing your case. We have no other information or contact details to give you.” That was the end of our email chain and the only real correspondence we've had with the Embassy in months. I called the NVC, and they were able to confirm it was a "soft refusal" under the 221(g), but they said they didn't know why and to contact the Embassy. We still aren't able to get in touch with anyone who can provide any updates regarding our case. Our immigrations lawyers suggested I contact my state senators for advice, so I did last week & they had me fill out a form and confirmed that they submitted an official inquiry to the Embassy. I am just wondering if anyone else is in this position with the U.S. Embassy is Paris and/or if anyone has had any luck getting in touch? I have been reading forums where I saw other Portuguese citizens had their interviews on May 5 as well...any insight on timelines? Is there any way to find out what may still be needed from my fiancé? Thank you so much in advance!!
  4. Hey, everyone! We received our NOA2 this year (notice date: May 6 | approval date on USCIS site: May 7) and we still have not received a case number, and no further processing has been made since then. My fiance and I have been contacting NVC at least twice every week now, since it is over the 60 day period. NVC requested to send a scanned copy of our approval notice to their NVC Research email. It has been already two weeks since they sent a reply saying they will try contacting USCIS to locate our petition. Called yesterday morning to be told the same thing they tell me every time, "We have not received your petition yet. There is nothing on file." NOTHING on file with our receipt number?? Even after all this time? I even tried contacting USCIS through live chat several times (tried calling and was led to an automatic reply system every time) and was told to wait for NVC to receive the petition. They would not even confirm for me if my petition was sent for certain. "The case has been approved. As far as being sent, the update that we see is the receiving of the application by the NVC. Like I said that can take up to 90 days," was what one representative told me. USCIS says they cannot do anything till the 90 day mark, which will be in about a week and a half/two weeks. I honestly have no idea what is going on and I was not sure if this is a problem that only we are going through currently. Is anyone having similar problems?? Has anybody resolved a similar issue?
  5. Hi everyone, do you have updates for DS260 for upload button and can’t submit the Sign and submit button? Thank you in advance
  6. If you are a K-1, K-2, K-3 or K-4 visa holder the I-693 instructions state that you are not required to have another medical examination as long as your Form I-485 is filed within one year of your overseas medical examination. Regardless of if you are exempt from a medical exam, you are still required to complete certain portions of the I-693 and have a Civil Surgeon certify the form (and seal it in an evelope). Specifically, you will complete Part 1 (Information about you) of the I-693 and provide both the form and your DS-3025 (if you have it, proving your vaccination history) and any proof of required vaccinations that were completed prior to entering the US. If you do not have a copy of your DS-3025 you will need to provide sufficient evidence of your vaccination history to the Civil Surgeon (talk to the civil surgeon's office to discuss what vaccination records they accept as proof). If you do not have proof of your vaccination history the Civil Surgeon may insist on re-administering all the required vaccinations prior to completing the I-693. Once the Civil Surgeon has has verified that all required vaccinations have been performed, they will complete form I-693 Part 2 (the vaccination section) and Part 5 (the Civil Surgeon's Certification). They will then seal the form in an envelope and return it to you. Form I-944 has quite a bit of supporting documents that go with it depending on your situation, be sure to read the instructions for this form carefully. Many people have gotten a RFE for this form so be sure to pay CLOSE attention when filing it out. When in doubt ask questions on the forums. When filing by mail, "priority mail with delivery confirmation" is the preferred method. Always keep a copy of what you have filed. IF your forms include an I-485 AND an I-485A, forget the "A" one...it is used for other types of applications for adjustment, such as assylum...you ONLY need to file the regular I-485 Form, not the A supplement. BE SURE TO USE CODE (C)(9) FOR A 1-YEAR EAD CARD (when filing concurrently with I-485)!!! How to get the forms: You can use forms downloaded from the USCIS website if they are printed on good quality paper with a good printer quality. You can also download free fillable forms on this site. Other things you will need: passport-style pictures (see specification), copy of the passport, copy of the k-1 visa (and NOA2), Electronic I-94 Copy (or for older entries a front/backside copy of the non US Citizen Spouses valid paper I-94), copy of the fiance's birth and divorce certificates with translation, PLUS the supporting documentation for the I-864 form: letter from employer confirming employment, the last 3 years of tax returns, plus any documentation of your financial resources if you choose to include this. The rule is, if your income is not 125% of the poverty level for your family, you will need additional financial documentation. HOWEVER, if you read the form instructions carefully, it states that while they do NOT require additional financial information IF you have at least 125% of the poverty level, it says the USCIS can still ask for that information if they want... so in order to potentially avoid future questions, many people include financial information, including bank letter, letter from stockbroker, letter regarding mortgages, copy of deeds to a property, and any other financial assets... etc. It is far better to include too much information rather than not enough. How long will I have to wait for an EAD, advance parole, and adjustment of status: You can check time here. Where to file the forms: You will file your petition at the Chicago Lockbox. See this page for the Chicago Lockbox address (PO Box). You will receive a receipt (Notice of Action) in the mail for your application once they receive and process it.
  7. I have applied my fiancé visa for over a year, finally last week I got packet 4 letter to schedule interview, but every-time I check it shows finger print appointments but no interview appointment, since last night the dates on the calendar showing have been turning light blue im assuming people are booking those dates but for me its showing no appointment avibale, its not even showing on left bar "first available appointment" anymore, has anyone scheduled appointment for Mumbai recently, today is July 13, 2021
  8. Does the Guayaquil Ecuador embassy accept joint sponsors? My fiancé's cousin is willing to be a. Sponsor. I might have a job lined up soon but I've been unemployed since the pandemic .
  9. Is there anyone here who was able to get a K1 visa consular appointment for the month of March, 2021 at the Mumbai Consulate, India? I was randomly checking my ustravel docs yesterday and just dumbluck (hopefully) was able to schedule my consular appointment for 12th of March, 2021 but am not sure if it was some sort of glitch. It still shows on my UStraveldocs account though. Asking because I would have to go through the police clearances and medical exams again.

  12. Hi everyone, just a quick silly question haha So I grew up in Kosovo and moved to the United Kingdom when I was 7 years old, and then became a British Citizen. I travelled to Australia for about 10 months in 2013 then came back to the UK as this is where I live. Do I need a police report for Kosovo, Australia and the UK? Or just the UK? This is very confusing so if anyone can shed some light it would be awesome!!
  13. Hello. For anyone who has been through the K1 process in Nigeria, I’m trying to get some insight and be prepared for when they start doing K1 interviews. I hear things are starting to move so want to be on top of things. Please how long did it take to get your police certificate? Is the police report only acceptable from the Ikoyi location? Or any police station? Also for the medical exam, if you don’t have your immunization records can they test to make sure you’re immune or offer vaccines? what else do you need for the interview? Please help. Thanks
  14. Beneficiary has a different surname on the birth certificate than what is her legal name. Her legal name is what is mentioned on her passport too. She had changed her surname before applying for the passport and has an affidavit claiming the legal name change. We forgot to mention her previously used name on the I129F. She will be taking the legal name change documents with her to the interview when the time comes. Will there be a problem since it was not mentioned on the form? If so, how do we rectify it?
  15. Hi everyone. I'm a newbie here. I just want to ask regarding the application of US tourist visa. I have read from the previous topics that while on the process of applying for a K1 Visa, the fiance can still visit the US provided that he/she presents the documents needed (if asked) to the immigration officer. I haven't been to the US but I am planning on visiting my fiance so I am applying for a US Tourist Visa. As I was filling out the DS160 form, there is a section there about the Family Declaration and there's one for Fiance and for Partner. Which section should I fill out? Thanks in advance for your answers.
  16. Good evening everyone, I'm not sure if I'm posting in the correct place but I have a question specifically about Haiti k1 visa filing. I currently have everything ready and planned on sending my packet in tomorrow. But my mom mentioned that instead of my Fiancé's "Acte de Naissance", I needed his "Extrait D'archiffe" instead. How accurate is that information? Can I send the packet in with the birth certificate or is the extrait darchiffe needed instead? All insights are welcomed! 😊
  17. Hello everyone. I just have a question about the nvc validation date. What if your valid date is up and there is still no result from the interview? What should we do? TIA!
  18. Hello, I have a technical question, can I submit a payment for K-1 visa using money gram from CVS? If so, would two separate money grams for the total amount be acceptable? The filing fee for the K-1 visa is $535 and I have two separate money grams ($500 and $35). I got the money grams from CVS and $500 is the maximum amount you can have per CVS MoneyGram order policy. I am not sure if Sending the payment for the fees this way would be acceptable or not since I am technically sending the total amount in MoneyGram order(s) to the US department of homeland security. Any insight on this would be invaluable, thank you so much in advance.
  19. Hello everyone, My fiance and I are at the interview stage with the US embassy in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. We are confident in proving our love, however there is one potential flag that worries us. My fiance previously tried applying for student visas before we did the K1 visa and she failed twice. I know the US embassy will ask about it. She's a doctor in Vietnam but wanted to study to learn more in the medical field and broaden herself to apply to her clinic. We're worried that because of her previous visa attempts, they will think that she's trying to come to the US through the K1 visa. We're truly are in love and want to be together and have been waiting a long time, through COVID, trying to be together. Please advise on what we can do. Thank you very much. Warmest Wishes, Andrew Truong and Ngan Duong
  20. Note: When filing for Adjustment of Status K1 and K3 Visa holders are now required to submit their paperwork to the National Address (Chicago Lockbox) instead of at their local CIS office. This procedure became effective for all applicants in April 2005. After the National office completes initial processing your case will be referred to your local CIS office where you will be interviewed for your permanent residency or be transferred to CSC. Prior to this the national office will send you communications requesting biometrics be taken and schedule an interview with you for this. To determine the amount of time it will take your local office to schedule your interview appointment refer to Processing Times page and click on USCIS District Processing Times link Download the Following Forms: 1. I-485 2. I-944 3. I-864 4. I-765 (optional) 5. I-131 (optional) 6. 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-485 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. Be sure to include the payment for both the I-485 and the biometrics fee*. >> The fee for I-485 applications includes the cost of the I-131 and I-765 (no need to pay for them if filed with or while your I-485 application is pending adjudication). 2. Cover Page. This should include the applicants contact information, a description of the benefit being filed for ("Immediate Relative (Spouse) Family Based Adjustment of Status Application") and a table of contents listing the major items in the packet. If you need additional room to explain your case, attach a separate sheet and list the attachment on the cover sheet. Make sure to sign and date the cover sheet. 3. Form I-485: Petition for Alien Relative (note: use the non US Citizen spouse's married name on this form and list previous name/names) 4. Form I-944 (Declaration of Self-Sufficiency with applicable supporting documents) 5. Copy of the non US Citizen Spouses Passport (biographical page as well as entry stamps). 5a. Copy of the non US Citizen Spouses K-1 or K-3 Visa from Passport 6. K-1 Visa Holders: Submit Copy of NOA2 "Approval" for I-129F ** K-3 Visa Holders: Submit Copy of NOA2 "Approval" for I-130 7. Electronic I-94 Copy or (for older entries) a copy of the non US Citizen Spouses valid paper I-94 (front and back of form) 8. A copy of the intending immigrant's birth certificate along with English translation. (If in any language other than English) 9. A copy of your marriage certificate. Note: While a regular copy is allowed, submitting a certified copy is preferred as some members have received an RFE asking for this (so if one is available use that instead). 10. Two passport-type photos (see specification) of the Non US Citizen Spouse. Write the full name and A# on the back using a soft felt tipped pen or pencil. Place in a plastic bag and label the bag "Photo of <Insert Name>". Attach the bag to a sheet of paper and place behind the I-485. 11. I-693, Medical Examination of Aliens Seeking Adjustment of Status.I-693, Medical Examination of Aliens Seeking Adjustment of Status. If you are a K-1, K-2, K-3 or K-4 visa holder the I-693 instructions state that you are not required to have another medical examination as long as your Form I-485 is filed within one year of your overseas medical examination. If you are missing any shots from your overseas medical a I-693 vaccination transcription is required to be completed by seeing a Civil Surgeon to have certain portions of the I-693 completed and have the Civil Surgeon certify the form (sealing the original in an envelope and giving you a copy). 12. I-864, Affidavit of Support (see poverty limits here) >> Include any additional required supporting documentation 13. I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, if you want to work while your application is processed (optional) >> Include any additional required supporting documentation or photos as well as payment as noted here. 14. I-131, Application for Travel Document, if you need to travel outside the United States while your application is processed (optional) >> Include any additional required supporting documentation or photos as well as payment as noted here. * Fingerprint fee not needed for applicants under 14 ** Should this document be misplaced/lost/never received you can file an I-824 to receive a duplicate copy via mail. "Cover Page" Information: In the checklist above it is recommended that you include a Cover Page with your application. While this is optional, filing a cover page will help the USCIS understand what benefit your are applying for and specifically what items you have included in your package. Again, make sure the cover page includes: -- the applicants contact information (name, address, phone number) -- A description of the benefit you are applying for, (Immediate Relative (Spouse) Family Based Adjustment of Status Application) -- A table of contents listing the major items in your package (i.e. I-485 and evidence, I-765, I-131, etc) -- A line with the applicants signature and date I-944 (Declaration of Self-Sufficiency) Information: This form is required to be submitted with your I-485 for all applicants, and is in addition to the required I-864 (Affidavit of Support). The supporting documents list is lengthy and includes a tax transcript (not actual tax return) of the U.S. citizen, last foreign tax return filed by the fiancé, asset statements, certificates for any English courses taken, higher education verification, if applicable (including diplomas and equivalency evaluations), and several other onerous requirements. The most troublesome item is the requirement for a U.S. credit bureau credit report, or a letter from a credit bureau stating that no credit report is available. Since most recent immigrants will not have a credit record in the U.S., no credit report will be available, and the 3 credit bureaus have not been issuing letters stating no report is available. Our best advice at this point is to write a letter explaining why no credit report is available. You can find an example of this letter and an example filled out I-944 here. 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. Where to File Everything: Applicants are required to mail applications to a national mailbox (Chicago) as stated on the form (not your local USCIS office). Be sure to 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. After Filing: What Happens? I-485's can take anywhere from several months to several years to be approved depending on where you live (every local office has a different waiting period). This delay often leaves the petitioner feeling completely hopeless of ever receiving approval. DO NOT GIVE UP! Though it seems like forever, the CIS will eventually get to your petition. In the mean time make sure your EAD for working is valid (renew when needed) and that you have an AP for any neccesary travel you have planned. Listed below are the main items that will happen while the beneficiary's I-485 is being processed. Employment Authorization and Advance Parole Processing If you filed for Employment Authorization and/or Advance Parole petitions are generally processed within 90 days of filing. During that wait the beneficiary (non-US Citizen Spouse) will be sent a notice in the mail to schedule an appointment at the nearest USCIS biometrics office to have their fingerprints and photos taken. It is important follow the instructions in this notice and to schedule the biometrics appointment in a timely fashion. Below are estimated waiting times for these benefits: Estimated EAD Processing Times Estimated AP Processing Times As a note, in an emergency where travel outside of the United States is needed (while a beneficiary's I-485 in still being processed) an Advance Parole can be obtained quickly by scheduling an Info-Pass appointment at your local USCIS office. You must show proof (doctors note, etc) that the travel is a true emergency (such as to see a critically ill relative or other true emergency) and file an I-131 (AP) in person. If approved the AP is likely be issued the same day. Do not attempt to leave the country without an AP as this can result in the beneficiary's I-485 being considered "abandoned" and will require a new Visa to enter the US (and refiling of the I-485). Biometrics Your beneficiary (non-US Citizen Spouse) will be required to have their biometrics taken as part of the I-485 processing (fingerprints and photos). The beneficiary will be sent a notice in the mail to schedule an appointment at the nearest USCIS biometrics office to have their fingerprints and photos taken. It is important follow the instructions in this notice and to schedule the biometrics appointment in a timely fashion. This can typically precede the interview date by up to 15 months, however it is usually much closer. Interview (in person) for Adjustment of Status Eventually most people (see exception below) will receive a letter from the CIS informing you of your interview date. It will include instructions on what to bring to the interview and any required items you may need to complete before hand. One of the most critical items requested will be "evidence of the relationship" which proves that your marriage is true and faithful (i.e. photos, joint checking account, joint lease, joint mortgage, and birth certificates of children if any, etc.). Also, it is important to bring the current passport of the beneficiary to the interview. The interview is fairly painless and may be video recorded and lasts between 15-30 minutes. If approved you will be mailed your "green-card" shortly after the interview date (weeks). Interview Exception. In some cases a beneficiary's Adjustment of Status case may be transfered to the California Service Center (possibly another location) where the CIS will attempt to complete processing without requirinig an "in person" interview. There is no particular way to know if this will happen to your case however if this does happen then you will not be required to attend an interview in person. If the I-485 is approved the beneficiary's green card will simply be mailed to them. NOTES: (1) It is possible that at your interview a tardy namecheck or FBI clearance may hold up a final "approval" of the I-485 after the interview. Permanent Resident status does not start until the case is *actually* approved, which may be a later date than the interview. The final issued green card will show the validity date. (2) If the beneficiary and petitioner have been married less than two years at the time the I-485 is approved then the beneficiary will receive what is called a "conditional" legal permanent residence. This simply means that the beneficiary will have to renew his/her greencard 2 years from the date it was originally "issued" by filing an I-751 to remove conditional status. When filing this form you will need to again show proof of your valid and ongoing marriage.
  21. Hello everyone. I am currently filling out my DS160 form for my K1 visa, and I need help with answering the following question. "Has anyone ever filed an immigrant petition on your behalf with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services?" I have received a E2 visa in the past, which my father's company has filed on behalf of me. Since this visa is classified as a "non-immigrant" visa instead of a "immigrant" visa, I'm assuming the answer would be "no". What are you thoughts on this? Thank you in advance for your help!
  22. Hi all, my case has been showing “ready” since December 26th, 2020. I have not received my welcome letter yet. Has anyone received welcome letter and interview date? If so, when was your case showing as ready? Please reply and let me know. Much appreciated
  23. I recently processed my ssn in Glen burnie office maryland state. They took all ny requirements and the officer who is the manager told me that it will take 4-6weeks to process my application because verification needs to be done by DHS first, she is not sure also as k1 we are non immigrant visa so we are not eligible for an ssn. I am checking my case status in SAVE like after few days it changed already to Case returned to Agency. I follow up my case in our local ssa office about my application and everyone keeps on telling me that still under DHS pending for verification Feb 9- it was 6 weeks already from my application and the guy whom i talked to was able to access the SAVE and told me there was a 'mismatch' but did not specifically mentioned what is it. He asks if I filed for a green card or am i really k1 visa and not with permanent resident visa. I told him all the documents i submitted in their office during my application was my i94 with k1 visa written there, visa stamp on passport k1 visa as well. He told me he will try to send retry for initial verification and after we spoke, i checked the SAVE and i have 2 cases already both dates FEB 9, one was case returned to agency and one case under review with max 6days left just like a new one. Feb 12- I called back again today because I saw that both cases are now case returned to agency and spoke to the field manager and told me she cannot access the SAVE right now and they still did not receive any notification regarding my verification. She told to just wait because we cannot do anything right now. I am worried that my i94 will expire on march 23 and wait like forever with an answer 'pending' for verification from DHS. Can anyone suggest what is the best thing I can do? Can anyone suggest any ssa offices here in maryland who can handle k1 visa applying for ssn? Thanks so much.
  24. Hi everyone good evening. My I-485 is still at "Case is ready to be Scheduled for interview" and it's been 235days ago. I have received my ead and I-131 220 days ago. I don't know if the wait time is taking too long because of pandemic or is it normal to wait that long for the interview for green card? Please help me and let me know. thank you in advance.
  25. I would like to start the process to bring girl friend from Philippines to USA. I went to official US visa info site https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/family-immigration/nonimmigrant-visa-for-a-spouse-k-3/us-embassy-consulate-specific-information.html and it says... Please visit K1 / K3 Supplements by Post to review Embassy/Consulate instructions. That link takes you to a list of cities that includes Manila. Clicking Manila takes you to a page with a link for more info - but that link is dead. It also has a phone number for more info. That number goes to a retailer's service center. Can anyone provide a list of steps I need to take? Info "how to..." overview? Steps to take? THANKS
