Frontgear,

I got approved on the 29th of June, On the July 9th Texas emailed me that the sent the package NVC. My question is will the NVC send me a letter with case number prior mailing to Ho Chi Minh City? or should i call them asking for case number? also, will my Fiance receive package 3 before the interview? I know i need to fill out I-134 form, but what do i do with this form? give it to my fiance to bring it to interview? about the interview date, do we allow to select the date or they assign date to us? I plan to be there on the interview date? will they allow me to be in? do i need to tell them that i am there? Sorry i have so many questions,. Thank you so much for your help and any advice you give.

I am new too. but please search the forum.

1. from searching, NVC should send you a letter, but you can call NVC as well. They are very busy, I have try for the whole week and still could not get a real person on case number.

2. your Fiancee should get P3 before the interview.

3.from searching you give the I-134 to your Fiancee to bring to the interview.

4. you can select the interview date, by some one could confirm.,,,,

5. you can be at the interview with your fiancee.

Steve,

Thank you for answered all the questions. Right now I am looking to hire Dich Vu to help my Fiance do Vaccination and filling the form, and booking interview all that stuffs. I assume i need bank statements right, and tax scripts 2013, 2014, letter from employer, 4 pay stubs, and I-134 filled.

1. The NVC will send you a letter in the mail with your HCM-XXXX case number, but in the meantime, you can call the NVC to ask for that HCM-XXXX number if you do not want to wait. With the HCM- number, you can track your case online via the CEAC website (link below, make sure to select IMMIGRANT VISA (IV) from the Visa Application Type at the top).

https://ceac.state.gov/CEACStatTracker/Status.aspx?eQs=WwjqOlbeRYzCYubaSQI+RA==

2. Your fiance will receive his/her Packet 3 before the interview. When you track your case via the CEAC website, pay attention to the Status. Once it shows a READY status, note the date, wait 3-4 days, then go to the U.S. Consulate Online Inquiry website to ask if they have received your K1 package. The consulate receives the electronic package first and the physical package arrives a few days later. The consulate staff will respond to your inquiry usually the next day (around 2-3 A.M. Eastern Time). Wait 2-3 weeks from this response date for the Packet 3. If you do not receive the Packet 3 by then, fill out another inquiry and ask the consulate staff to email you a copy of the Packet 3 letter. Your fiance will need this letter for her vaccination and medical exam. Packet 3 is only a letter with your HCM- case number and a link to download the K1 Instructions. You can download the K1 Instructions here: http://photos.state.gov/libraries/hochiminh/231771/PDFs/K-INSTRUCTION.pdf

3. The I-134 form is to be given to your fiance to take to his/her interview, along with other required documents (as specified in the K-1 Instructions Package that he/she will receive in the mail). Make sure to include supporting documents with this I-134 form (e.g.: paystubs for the last 6 months, bank statement, letter from employer, IRS Tax Transcripts for the last 2-3 years, etc.) I believe you can no longer print the IRS Tax Transcripts online (due to recent hacks) so you may have to request them by calling the IRS phone number. It takes 10-15 days to get these transcripts so you might not want to wait until the last minute.

4. Once your fiance has received his/her Packet 3 letter in the mail (or via email), he/she can go to the ustraveldocs.com website and sign up for an account. With this account, he/she can pay for the Visa fee. Twenty-four (24) hours after the Visa fee has been paid, he/she can go back to the ustraveldocs site to schedule his/her interview date. The US Consulate no longer schedules the interview. Everything is done online by you/fiance now (no more Packet 4, etc.)

5. They will allow you inside the U.S. Consulate in Saigon, but may or may not interview you. Bring your U.S. Passport when you arrive at the consulate and the guards will let you in. Be sure to let the interviewing officer know who you are! I walked up to the interviewing booth with my then-fiancee and told the gentleman who I was, but was asked to take a seat as he did not need to interview me.

Feel free to send me a PM if you have additional questions. Sometimes it is better to start a new forum thread so you can easily track it (and provides a reference point for future VJners).

No need for Dich Vu. I think these places charge upwards of $700 or so for doing something that you can do yourself. You can help your fiance fill out the DS-160 form online, print out the Visa payment form, and schedule the interview for him/her if he/she is not familiar with the process. Your fiance will need to get the Police Record #2 (Ly Lich Tu Phap #2), though.

I did everything for my wife remotely. She only had to go to the Post Office to pay the Visa fee and mail the documents back to the Consulate. Of course, she had to go to the medical exam & vaccination herself. LOL
