  1. Hi everyone, Do I still need the United Kingdom Police Certificate for my K1 visa interview at Malaysia Embassy? I was residing in the United Kingdom for a year for my Master's Degree. But I was flying back and froth from UK and the States, spending total of 6 months in the UK and 6 months in the US with my fiance during my Master's Degree. Does that still count as 1 year? Is it necessary for me to get the UK police certificate eventhough I am no longer staying in the United Kingdom, and I'm back living in Malaysia while waiting for my interview at US Embassy in Malaysia. The reason I want to double confirm if I need the UK police certificate it's because the price is very expensive, processing fee is £55 and shipping fee is £48. If anyone has or had similar situation as me and who has/had gone through the K1 visa process, would appreciate the advice.

  3. Hello - Newbie to the site and just trying to get my head around all the forms and processes. I'm a US citizen married to a UK citizen. I have permanent residency through a company sponsored visa although we intend to move back to the US next year. I will head back for work prior to my wife's visa being approved so she will move as soon as that is fully completed. I do have a few questions and would appreciate any insight VJers can provide: If we were to apply via DCF in London, can we do the concurrent filing with the I-485 and I-864 being submitted with the I-130? I've seen conflicting information on this and so am a bit unclear if this is possible. If the above is a no and we were to still apply via DCF in London for the I-130, can I be back in the US for the remaining part of the process (i.e. the I-485?) I am looking to apply by end of this month prior to terminating my permanent residence status here in the UK. I've read it can be faster to apply via a DCF so would like to take advantage of that if possible. If that is not the case, then I presume I could do a concurrent filing upon returning to the US in January 2020? Many thanks for any and all responses!
  4. Hey Everyone, Still completing the I-129F, but thinking ahead a little. My beneficiary was born and lives in Northern Ireland - I know that he has to go to his interview in London. My question: is it going to be an issue that he has an Irish passport? It's all I've ever seen him use. Does he need to get a UK one? As if this whole process wasn't complicated enough 🙄 Thanks in advance for any guidance!
  5. Hello, my fiance has his interview on Wednesday and we just now realized it asks for the original and a photocopy of each document. Is it okay if we dont have copies or is it mandatory? If it is, is the photocopy required for every document or just certain ones?
  6. Good morning all, I was wondering if LPR's had any experience hiring a car. Let me give some background info. I am a British citizen living in the USA, I have my Green Card interview in 2 days so I'll be an LPR (hopefully) by the time my UK trip comes around I hold a Missouri drivers license We have a Bank of America credit card We are with Geico insurance I am from the UK I want to hire a rental car in the UK We are going to the UK for 2 weeks over October/November So long story short, can a British LPR hire a rental car in the UK using a Missouri driver's license? If so, what will I need? I have never hired a rental before in any country so I am clueless where to begin. Any help would be appreciated!
  7. I had my medical today at Knightsbridge and it went very smooth I arrived 20 minutes early and was asked to take a seat in the waiting room. 20 minutes later, I walked up to the reception where they checked all my documents and took copies of some of them. It was a relatively less busy day (even according to the staff) so the chest x-ray and the checks with the doctor all happened quite quickly. I'm a little squeamish with needles but the doctor was gentle that I almost didn't feel a thing. The staff there were very nice, reassuring and easy going which made the experience even better. The person who took my x-ray said "Well, I can confirm that you are indeed human and your chest looks textbook normal." 🤣 All in all, a very positive experience. I want to thank you alot the members in this forum and past posts. It all helped me in being as prepared as possible for the medical. This forum has been a god send! I hope all your experiences at Knightsbridge are also positive and smooth. Onwards to the interview now!
  8. Hello, I apologize if I'm asking something that's clearly written on 20 posts, but I just want to confirm from people who have actually done this (rather than a lot of hypotheticals.) My wife received her CR1 interview letter today, interview scheduled for May 22, which is very exciting! We have done all the paperwork ourselves, no lawyer, and so far so good. All paperwork has been filled out with her new Married name. The only issue that we didn't notice until just now is that NVC has been referring to her as her Maiden name. I understand now (which I did not before) that the Green Card will be issued only to the name on the passport. So in my mind, here are the possible scenarios: A) Attend interview, hope to present/reference marriage certificate with new name, cross our fingers and hope they put married name on visa? or B) Attend interview content with the fact that they will use her maiden name and we will have to go through all the processes later to change it. **Issues with both of the above: I have read some people have visas denied due to mismatching last name/improper name change documentation. (Ours is a California-issued marriage certificate with the name change on it) or C) Apply for an expedited UK passport with new name which should arrive within a week (lots of time before interview), and take new and old passport to interview **Issue in my mind: New document the NVC had never seen, will this cause an issue that it doesn't match what we've submitted and the name they've been using for her? I hope I've thought this all through and if not, feel free to let me know what I've missed. I'd appreciate if anyone has successfully completed options A or C. We are getting so excited for this incredible milestone and for this process to be over. We don't want to screw it up at the last step. If I tell my wife "I don't know, I've never done this before either" again, she might just call off the whole process 😂 Thanks so much in advance! I wish I had been using this site from the very start of our process! -T
  9. I'm just preparing for my interview in a week or so (London). We've got the I-134 completed and ready to go. My fiance (petitioner) is self employed and all I plan in taking are the tax return transcripts (downloaded from the IRS website) as proof of income. Do I need to bring anything else or are the transcripts from 2017 and 2018 going to be sufficient on their own?
  10. Hello! My Fiance and I have received notice from the NVC that our case is "Ready" on March 28th, but we still haven't received any letter from the London consulate with instructions on scheduling the interview. We have done the medical and have everything else together and even went ahead and scheduled the interview for the first week of May, but will we need that letter with the instructions for how to book it for the actual interview itself? I have been getting conflicting stories from the Embassy when I contact them directly.
