hi guys. I have a question. I just paid the visa application fee at BDO today. they didn't ask me for any of the forms (but I brought them with me). the lady just told me how much, made me fill out the bill receipt with my name, etc. she then gave me the blue and white copy of the bill payment receipt and one DS156 form. she told me to fill that out or I can also download it. I got confused 'coz I read here on VJ that they will validate/stamp (PAID) the forms (don't know which ones). so I asked the lady if she's sure she doesn't need to validate my forms 'coz I have them with me. she said no, I just need to show the blue copy on my interview day. did she do it wrong? do I have to return and have my forms validated/stamped PAID???? please help me! my interview is on APRIL 8! :crying:

Hey there!

From what I've read here, they will give you DS 157 form once you pay the visa fee. And a friend told me that they stamped the back of the form as a proof that you paid for it. As for the DS 156 and 156K, you can fill them out online and have them printed.

yes they gave me a blank DS157 form. but they did not stamp it nor any of my forms. should I be concerned? should I go back?

Try to go back and ask them to stamp the back of the form just to make sure.

can anyone confirm if the 156 or 157 will need a stamp or not ? or will the blue and white reciept suffice ?

just had my interview last week. mine didn't have a stamp and they accepted it. i guess the blue receipt was enough.

how did you do with the interview? Well I guess you did great!! Congrats in advance!! What did they ask? Just curious since my fiancee will be interview next month, tenatively!!.... Congrats

thanks! yes i did pass :yes: with lots of prayer, i'm sure your fiancee will too.

they asked me quite a few questions. these are the ones i can remember, in random order:

- where and when did i meet him

- my fiance's job

- why/how did i decide i was going to marry him after being together for such a short time

- how did i know he loves me

- what kind of wedding are we planning to have, in a church or courthouse (i answered courthouse but i said we are planning to have a church wedding too)

- when are we planning to have the church wedding

- why didn't we get married when he was here

- was he married before

- does he have a child

- how old is his child

- have i talked/do i talk to his child

- how old is my fiance

that's all i can remember right now. the only thing they took from me are my original birth cert, original CENOMAR, original NBI clearance, and the affidavit of support. my affidavit of support file contained the I-134 form, 3 years of tax transcripts and their W2s, most recent W2 with the form 1040, 3 most recent pay stubs, letter from employer, 2 most recent bank statements, and his most recent 401K statement. hope that helps!
