Documents to bring to CR1 interview

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Originals of the copies you sent like marriage cert, your birth cert etc. 

 

The rest is individual to your case. Like we used assets and needed an updated I-864. I also brought more pictures. Some embassies will look at them at the interview, some won’t.
