Different Packet 3 Instructions for Bangkok Consulate (K1)

Hi all,

I just want to ask those who have done all the paper works for K1 in Bangkok Consulate.

In the Packet 3 checklist that I received it says:

First: Obtain all documents on this list that apply to your case.

Second: As soon as you have obtained ALL the documents required to process your case, you must send them to this office with a completed and signed Form DS 2001.

But in this website : http://bangkok.usembassy.gov/root/pdfs/k_visa_packet3.pdf, it says:

Step 1: prepare all documents on this checklist. All documents must be obtained and in your possession before the

interview can be scheduled.

Step 2. Once you have all the documents in your possession, complete and sign this Checklist of Documents and

return it with your DS 230 Part 1, a photocopy of passport photo page for each applicant and two

photographs for each applicants to the embassy by mail..

Step 3. Your interview will be scheduled when we received the items in step 2. You

must bring all of the other items on the checklist with you at the time of your


In this above mentioned website, I understood it to mean I only need to sign the checklist of documents, and send in two documents; the DS 230 Part 1 and DS 156 so the consulate can schedule the interview.

I have all the papers ready except for the police clearance from Bangkok Police which would be released on August 25, 2009 (3 weeks from application date). I want to send the Packet 3 documents now to get an early interview appointment date rather than wait for August 25.

Is it possible to send only the signed checklist, DS 230 Part I and DS 156 and bring all other documents on the day of the interview? Is there anyone out here who have done this? Please help and thanks in advance for the response.
