I, personally, think a copy should be fine. Hell, some companies only have electronic W-2s now. So, to print one is a copy!

You don't have to take anything to the interview but I did just in case. You also don't have to submit 3 year's worth of tax info but I did, just in case. It's better to be overprepared than not be prepared at all.

Also, I only took copies of everything, not originals.

As far as I heard from the Philippine CR-IR Interviews..

Pre Screener and Consul never asked for Financial docs...

They just asked you for your Proof of Bonafide Marriage like Pictures, Joint Bills, Call Logs, Joint Loans, etc..

I fear for this too that they might ask for financial docs.. Cause my 07 W2 went below Poverty Line, and my fear is they might asked for it..

Hope not.. I don't want to risk any delay or AR if I present a Co-Sponsor..

Some people tells me not to worry cause the year just started and that makes my 06 still my latest ITR and it is what I submitted to NVC and it got approved because it was above the P-Line.

Good Luck!

2006 is above P-Line

2007 is below P-Line

My concern is they might ask me for 07..

If I have given all the W2 to the NVC, does my husband have to bring them with him for the interview???

I'm confused :(

Basically you bring copies or original of all what you gave to NVC.. And hope for the best that they won't ask for them..

Good Luck to us all..

There was some VJ reports that the Embassy has "misplaced" the documents.

So just to be safe than sorry, bring a copy of all the documents that you sent to the NVC along with additional documents that is not listed in the requirement. You just never know what they will ask for...

What is the Embassy going to say? "I am sorry to inform you, we lost your file.. You want a cookie?"

Although it didn't happen at my husband's interview, I've heard that sometimes the consulate officer will ask for updated financial information. If you are concerned about this, have an updated I-864 ready complete with co-sponsor information and update tax/paystub information. That way, if you are asked for it, you will be prepared. And if they don't ask for it, no need to present it.

Good luck! :)

Heh. Its either that or they will place you on AR/AP for not having the proper documents.

If you want to wait a few more months after the interview then by all means, help youself. Personally, I rather not let the embassy get the easy way out for not granting the visa just because they lost the file and ended up to wait some more.
