Hello everyone,

I joined VJ because I had so many questions about the process and wanted to chat and share information/tips with others who were going through the same thing. Below I have listed a detailed account of our journey and hope it helps some of you that are preparing to start the process.


Fianc and I met in 2011; relationship began in 2014; engaged in March 2016.

I-129F submitted: 9.8.16

NOA1: 9.13.17

NOA2: 10.27.16

Left NVC: 11.28.16

Consulate Received: ?

Packet 3 Mailed: 12.9.16

Packet 3 Received: Went to embassy for packet on 2.15.17 after receiving email

Interview Date: 2.21.17 ------- approved!!

We never received the packet 3 via mail. I emailed the embassy with a few questions and they informed me that they mailed the packet to me (the petitioner) on 12.9.16 and that I should have received it. I spoke with a representative at the 703-520-2573 customer service number and they told me that the embassy has a list of people that they have sent the packets out to and we should only move forward IF we had indeed been notified that the packet was sent. (IDK how true this is but those were her exact words). My fianc printed the email and ceac status that said ready for interview and went to the embassy to ensure we would be granted the chance to be interviewed (we had already scheduled the date). He received the packet which contained basic instructions for interview preparation (as discussed heavily on VJ).

Below is the order of information we presented



Passport photos

DS 160 confirmation page

Medical Report (sealed)

Police Certificate

Birth Certificate

Financial Support

  • They only asked for one year of tax information

  • I also included an employment letter but it was not reviewed

Letter of Intent

Evidence of Relationship

  • Whatsapp convos

  • Facetime logs

  • Facebook interactions

  • Twitter conversations/mentions

  • Pictures from 3 most recent visits

o Pics with his family, friends, engagement night in Dubai, etc

  • Screenshots of selected conversations

  • Letters of support from a few fam. and friends

  • Wedding preparation (ring receipt, dress receipt, etc.)

  • Emails

  • Apple Music subscription (family plan)

Original Petition

  • With all USCIS and NVC letters

  • This was not reviewed

We originally used a hard brown file but after reading around on VJ, I saw that most people were saying the file should be flexible so we switched to the navy one. Each of the documents were in an individual clear sheet and labeled with a notecard. Although my fianc was praised for organization, the documents were removed from the file and clear sheets and placed in order in a simple folder and taken back for review.

Whew, that s a lot of info but I know I was hoping someone would put their details in one forum versus having to search a million different ones for answers to questions I had. Hope this helps! Let me know if you all have any questions.

**Questions from the actual interview will be in my fianc s review*

Packet 3 and Affidavit of Support

Hey VJ!

Quick (and emergent) question!! How many years of financial evidence is required for the financial support? Apparently this is stated in the packet 3 but we never received the packet! I was a student up until last year so I only have one year of financial eligibility! Because of this, we were thinking perhaps the affidavit of support would be a good idea BUT IRS is "backed up" and is taking longer than we have (interview is in 14 days) to send out old W2 forms for previous years for our potential sponsor. What should we do!!???

P.S. Our sponsor has a 2016 W2 form but the social security number is marked out because it was being used for something else. Is this a bad look to still submit this?
