Organizing K1 Visa documents

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm getting a little bit confused on organizing our proof of ongoing relationship. Just wanna know if I have to bring all the original copies of our receipts, love letters, etc or can we just bring the scanned copies? I'm wondering if they're going to get the original one. Those have sentimental values especially the love letters. Thank you.

We just photocopied everything for the petition, the stuff we mailed in. Those were letters, emails, boarding cards, etc.

Then I took originals to the interview, but I wasn't even asked for them. We sent original photos in though and the interviewing officer gave them back to me, which was really lovely.

I personally have a copy of everything I originally sent in with the petition.

I got durable plastic covers from staples and placing things in there.

My fiancé will plan on taking the original cards and letters.

Unless you just make a back up copy incase they need it you can show them the original and if they need it

mention you also have a copy.

The other stuff such as plane tickets, itinerary, credit card slips, I made copies of those.
