Finally Email Response from HCMC

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Everone, well after 2 weeks they relpied to my email. I had several questions, since I know how long it takes to get an answer.

QUESTION:

Since I am divorced and have 2 children, and my ex wife and I settled

everything out of court. What documents besides the single page divorce

decree are needed if any?

ANSWER:

As normal requirements, divorce decree is enough. However, it depends

on the interviewing officer's decision at your fiancée's interview

whether further documents about your divorce are required.

QUESTION:

Once Huong gets her police clearance, is she able to get these

translated anywhere in hanoi, or are there specific places that you request

them to be translated?

I had her divorce decree and birth certificates for her and her son

translated here in the US, is this ok, or will she need them translated

there as well?

ANSWER:

We don't request the translation of any documents in Vietnamese into

English

QUESTION:

Does the medical need to be done in HCMC, or is there a location in

Hanoi? If it needs done in HCMC will she be able to get this done a day or

so before her interview or will she need to travel from Hanoi to HCMC

once for the medical and once for the interview?

ANSWER:

And the medical examination must be done in Ho Chi Minh City. She can

do it one day before her interview and submit the results later.

Well as you can see, the information is pretty much useless, because not one asnwer was completely true. Of course I could get them the medical late, but it will also postpone her Visa. The translation issue just kills me. On their website they ask for translations, and now they don't? As for the divorce info., I am supplying more than the minimal requirements.

Well, well, how nice of them to give such a solid answer! "If we need further documents on your divorce papers, we'll just let you know with a blue slip.....".

My fiancee has always been required to submit translations of Single Status and Police records. I would not trust the aswers you are getting. Better to spend a few extra dollars and have translations done as well as include any extra divorce documents that a Consular officer "might" want to see.

Believe me, I am not going to take their response to heart. I will definately get the required papers translated, but my question is, do they only accept translations from specific places, or can she get them translated anywhere? Also I had her divorce papers already translated from a company in the US, as well as her and her sons birth certificate, and the company certified them as well. Will the consulate accept these or does she need them translated again in her country?

As for my dovorce papers here is what I have gathered:

1 page divorce decree

My fiancee's lawyer typed up an affidavit stating that we settled everything out of court, and stated the amount of my child support payments, and stated that I have paid all support on time, and in full.

Her lawyer also printed something from online staing the dates everything was done, on the county website. I also got a single status paper.

I just love the fact that they try to create every opportunity for them to give her a blue slip. If the papers are nt translated they would blue slip her, if she doesn't have her medical done in time to provide at the interview they would either reschedule her interview or blue slip her for that, and the same would happen with the divorce papers. I am going to have everything and more for Huong for her interview.

Thanks Waitforever!!!
