K1 Packet question - Riyadh, Saudi Arabia - United States

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My case has been received by the United States Embassy in Riyadh! Yay!

I need to have two items clarified for me:

When she receives the Police letter from the US Embassy which will allow her to receive the police clearance, where does she go after that?

What documents does my fiancé need to send to the Embassy, so they may schedule her interview?

DS-160 (confirmation page),

Passport photos,

Copies of Birth Certificate,

Copies of Passport,

Copies or Original of Affidavit of Support?

Does she send originals/Copies of the Medical? Or does the physician send it?

Does she send originals/Copies of the Police Clearance?

Or does she just bring both along with her during the interview?

Thank you for all of your help! :)

Hi all,

My case has been received by the United States Embassy in Riyadh! Yay!

I need to have two items clarified for me:

When she receives the Police letter from the US Embassy which will allow her to receive the police clearance, where does she go after that?

My wife applied at the local police station. It took about 4 weeks to get the letter. It comes back with lots of stamps (9 I believe), so I felt very happy to make almost 10 Saudis look and feel busy and important putting stamps on stuff. I doubt they stamped it themselves though, they probably supervised some Filipino or Pakistani while the Filipino or Pakistani stamped it for them. That's very exhausting, supervising and ordering stampers around and coordinating stampage of official documents. I suspect all 9 stamp coordinators went home early that day.

Copies or Original of Affidavit of Support? Original but keep a copy

There is a list of things to send. Send whatever is on the list.

Does she send originals/Copies of the Medical? Or does the physician send it?

I had to pick it up from the hospital and she brought it to the interview. It was in a sealed envelope. NOTE: WE did DCF, K1 might be a little different but usually they follow the same basic steps.

Does she send originals/Copies of the Police Clearance?

We made a copy and sent in the original

Or does she just bring both along with her during the interview?

No matter what you send before the interview, bring a copy of everything to the interview. Except the medical, don't open the envelope! The embassy sends out a packet with a list of things to send before the interview and a list of things to bring to the interview.

Thank you for all of your help! :)
