I have a question please, I got to know my fiancee through my friend in USA. Someone told me that how we met may give me problem but I had seen my friends that went with that reason too. My question is, can someone explain to me the most tenable and acceptable answer to 'how did you meet'? Its pros and cons

When I booked for interview appointment, there was no place they asked for DS 160 confirmation number. I got worried until someone told me I was inline. When I got this your message, it raised my BP. I hope I have not missed something? It didn't request for DS 160 confirmation number when I chose K1 but required when I chose other ones like B1 B2 and Co.

Can someone please enlighten me because my interview appointment letter doesn't contain DS160 confirmation number. My believe is that I will print the summary page of DS160 with my appointment letter for the interview

For those who have entered the States with their K1 Visa, I advice you go get your Social Security Number (SSN) asap. I got mine without stress. All they need is for you to fill out the form (you can get the forms online or get it in their office), present your international passport, your birth certificate and your i94 printout. Once you do that, your number will be out within 2 weeks. No single dollar charged!

I've gotten mine and intend using it to get my drivers license.

Note that you can still go ahead and get married to your fiancee without the SSN. You can even open a joint account with your fiancee without the SSN. It's only a few Courts and a few Banks that insists on SSN before you can get married or open a joint account. I did mine without getting the SSN.

However I couldn't get my drivers license without the SSN and that's why I had to wait for my SSN before applying for drivers license.

Regards
I've commenced the process for obtaining Drivers License. Went to the DPS with my international passport, social security card and proof of residence. The queue was quite long. Waited for close to 4 hours before it got to my turn! Aside the documentations, I did the vision test and the Drivers written exam test which I passed. I also had to go do the driving practise test which I passed.

However I was given a license with a validity of a month! This is because they said my K1 visa is valid for only a month angry

Well, I guess I'll just manage it till it expires then I can go and renew.

I advice you go get your Drivers License after getting your social security number. Note however that each State within the US has different requirements for obtaining Drivers License.

That’s weird. My permit expires in 2023 and my license expires in 2023 too.

Did you take your marriage certificate with you?

My dear each State has different rules and requirements. Mine is Texas, yours is New York right? I tried to argue that I'm married and also showed my NOA1 for the AOS but she said they can only use K1 until it expires then I come back for renewal. I just hope my EAD will be ready by then. If not, I'll go back there again with my NOA1.

So you got a validity of 4 years! Thats great. Well done.

Good evening house,question for those who have had their case approved by the Uscis and have gone through the subsequent processes,is it normal for your case to keep displaying ‘case received’ when you track it with the receipt number that comes with the NOA1 on the uscis website,it’s been over 2 months now since NOA1 was received.

Additional info on the K1 Visa.

'A K-1 visa is a visa issued to the fiancé or fiancée of a United States citizen to enter the United States.

A K-1 visa requires a foreigner to marry his or her U.S. citizen petitioner within 90 days of entry, or depart the United States. Once the couple marries, the foreign citizen can adjust status to become a lawful permanent resident of the United States (Green Card holder).

Although a 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.' (Wikipedia)

'K1 Visa Process

1. USCIS Filing: The United States citizen sponsor files the K1 visa petition with the USCIS by mailing the completed I-129F petition package along with a check to the Department of Homeland Security.

2. Notice of Action 1 (NOA1): Two to three weeks after mailing your petition, you will receive a notice of action (NOA1) indicating the USCIS has received your petition.

3. Notice of Action 2 (NOA2): Usually (currently), between 5 and 7 months after mailing your petition, you will receive a notice of action (NOA2) indicating the USCIS has approved, denied or requests additional evidence for your petition. If approved, you do nothing at this step. If you are denied, (end of story, marry your partner and file for a spousal visa). If you receive an RFE, you need to respond to it with the evidence requested.

4. NVC Phase: The service center that handled your petition forwards your case to the State Department’s NVC (National Visa Center). This will happen within two weeks of your approval. The NVC will run a security check on your fiance.

5. NVC to Embassy: If your fiance’s security check comes back clean, your approved K1 visa petition will be routed to the Bureau of Consular Affairs. The Bureau of Consular Affairs will send your file to the U.S. Embassy in your fiance’s country via DHL.

6. Embassy Letter: After receiving your visa petition, the U.S. Embassy (usually in the country of origin) sends the fiance a letter with instructions for scheduling the medical exam and interview.

7. Gather Embassy Documents: The U.S. Embassy will instruct the fiance to return some of the documents immediately. Other documents will be kept until the interview.

8. Medical Exam: The fiance must have a medical exam. The package sent to the fiance by the U.S. Embassy will explain how to schedule the medical exam.

9. Embassy Interview: The fiance must attend an interview at the U.S. Embassy. All applicants must bring their passport, including children of all ages. If children are joining on a K-2 visa, they must also attend the interview.

10. Visa Issued: If approved, there will usually be a wait of up to one week. The visa will be delivered via courier.

11. Travel to U.S.: The fiance has 6 months to use the visa to enter the United States. He or she will be given a package of documents by the U.S. Embassy which he or she will surrender at the Point of Entry (POE) into the United States.

12. Wedding: The petitioner must marry the alien fiance within 90 days of entry into the United States. If a wedding doesn’t take place within this time, the fiance must leave the United States. The 90 day clock starts on the date you enter the United States, which is normally stamped in your passport. The K1 visa beneficiary can only marry the person who submitted the petition. Eventually the alien must file an adjustment of status petition to receive the green card.' (RapidVisa)
