OK, sounds like she submitted her I-130 in person at the consulate (what you call first interview). I am not familiar with DCF procedures in Egypt, but I do know if she does not live there she cannot use DCF. Could you be a bit more specific?

Oh! and ask an organizer to move this to the DCF forum ---if indeed, it is DCF.

thank you so much

ok she lived in egypt, they did direct filing and received the notice of action on the I-130, then the embassy told her it was ok for her to come back to the usa to work to show proof of support that they didnt need her there for the second part of the papers and last interview.

moved from CR1 to DCF forum

oh, coolness.

So now she has all her doc's ready for interview? As in, has she received an "ohai we are ready to interview you" or did she just get the NOA1 from her I-130 saying the petition was approved?

they received the we are ready to interview you sometime back but they got an extension because she had not been working long enough to show support for him the extension is good until dec. of this year

now she is ready

no worries hermana. Mind you ,I processed in Montreal. The way it worked was:

1. You got NOA1 saying your I-130 was approved; so please let us know when you have your ####### together.

2., We got said ####### together and send then the "checklist" back, which is a fill in the box list of documents you will need. We did not need to actually send in the documents to them.

3. They send you back an interview letter (I do not know the times in Egyp, MTL took 7 @%^^^ months to schedule us :ranting: ).

4. you show up at interview with all your documents (give them copies, have originals).

Hope that helps a bit

but my sister is married to an egyptian for almost three years now, she filed the first set of papers he had interview

He didn't have his interview, she did. She submitted the I-130 at the Embassy and they spoke with her. Maybe he was there with her when that happened, but it wasn't his visa interview.

then she came back to the states to get a job to show support for him

She is supposed to be meeting the domicile requirement for sponsors, which is not the same as meeting the financial requirements of a sponsor. He will have to supply the Embassy with documentation she has domiciled herself in the United States. She should send him any proofs to support this - a lease agreement, a letter from her employer, pay stubs, etc., a copy of her driver's licence, a couple of current bank statements, if she has children, proof that they're enrolled in school, and so on. It is impossible to over-do proving domicile so she should not be bashful about it at all.

now she does not understand what to do for the next set of papers, she knows that they have to have is army papers translated, and anything else that is not in english but she wants to know if u send the exact same papers u did the first time and just add the support documents, medial and papers translated?

No, she doesn't have to do anything with the forms included in packet 3 with the exception of the sponsor papers and associated documentation for that (copies of tax returns, etc.). All official documents that are not issued in English (ie., his birth certificate) must be translated into English. There is a checklist supplied with packet 3 that describes what her husband should return to the Embassy. Those are the only documents he should DHL to the Embassy and ONLY those.

After her husband sends the completed packet 3 back to the Embassy, he will receive a notice with his interview date and time, and this usually only takes a couple of weeks.

The checklist came in the packet 3 from Cairo.

he is in egypt and cant seem to understand what she wants or needs him to do and has all the documents that they did before but, he moved from his family home to an apartment in cairo because he started working there, his mother put the file someplace as in ok mom where is it and answer oh its here someplace but her sister is just pasted away so her mind is not really focusing right now, its a mess thats why i told her i would come here and ask from those of u that know, im no help to her at all with this.

When mom is able to get over her grief (this is so sad) and finds the envelope, have him scan the entire thing and email it to her so she can SEE what it is.

The alternative is for him to call the Embassy and ask for another packet. I don't know if that's possible but the worst that could happen is they would say no. If they agree to another packet, I suspect it would involve paying the DHL shipping fees again.
