K-3 Visa Evidence of Family Relationship

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm about to send my husband the necessary information for packet 3 (Visa and Affadavit of Support) per the request of the Ethiopian embassy.

For the evidence of family relationship is it acceptable NOT to send actual photos? I copied several scanned l photos onto a powerpower w/bullet points. Is this an acceptable alternative? Also are they strict about how you provide this information??

Also for the evidence of family relationship, I included a letter with a list of each individual attachment like so.

Attachment A - Form

Attachment B - Copies of Emails

Attachment C - Copies of Phone Records

You get the picture. I'm using a paper clip or binder clip for each attachment. Is seems organized to me but I just want to double check before I mail it.

Thanks.

Do you have to send that stuff in?

I had to bring the affidavit and photos to my interview and they just looked at them, didn't keep any of them.

If you are afraid, copies should be fine but make sure they are good ones.

Double-check if you need to send that stuff in or just have it ready for interview, please!

Yes, the Ethiopian Embassy requests proof of family relationship as part of the visa application -- not part of the interview. The pictures are clear. I included about a dozen photos.
