Packet3-4 documents

2 posts in this topic

Filed: Timeline

My interview date is in January for K1 visa.

1) My fiance has given me only W2(tax returns) and I134 forms. Should I also submit his last months payslips, recent bank statements and other financial support proofs?

What is form1040? Is it the same as W2 statements?

Should I submit the originals of these papers? Or photocopies are sufficient?

2) In the packet, it was mentioned that I should submit all the originals/photcopies/supporting documents to the VFS offcie. If I submit all the documents in VFS, should I also have a photocopy of all those documents to be taken to the interview? Or I need not take anything to the interview?

3) Also should I take the DD for 100$ on the same day when I go to submit the papers at VFS or can I take it beforehand. If so how long before can I take?

The I-134 Affidavit of Support asks for the tax returns, that is the 1040 or tax transcripts from the IRS. W2s are NOT tax returns. Tax returns show total income, total tax taken out, and other financial details. W2s are just statements about how much tax was taken out during the year. There is a separate W2 for each employer, whereas tax returns show all financial details from all places worked during the year.

Although other proof is not absolutely required, it is best to give as much as possible. Have your fiancé in USA send the tax returns (he should have copies with him already, for the 2006 tax year and if possible, for the last 3 years too), pay stubs for the last 6 months, a letter from his employer stating when he joined, how much he is making, etc., and if possible a letter from the bank stating when he opened his account and the current balance.

You can submit copies to the VFS office, that is sufficient. If possible he can send originals of letters from his bank and employer (of course, keeping a copy for himself). Make extra copies for yourself, to bring to the interview. On rare occasions they ask for the copies too, and you want to be prepared in case they lost or misplaced some paperwork! Bring all the paperwork you have, to the interview, just in case. Definitely make a copy of everything you hand over at the VFS office!

The VFS office will NOT accept the $100 visa fees DD. You only give that on the day of your interview at the Consulate. At the VFS office, they will only ask for the Rs 365 courier fees.

Since your interview is on Jan 18, you need to submit all the paperwork asked for (including your medical and PCCs) to the VFS office before January 7 (that is 10 working days before the interview). Anything that you do not have ready, you can give on the day of the interview. Since FedX packages arrive USA to India in only 2-3 days, your fiancé has plenty of time to send actual copies instead of scanned papers, which may not be the best quality.
