9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

OK so we recieved our packet 3 in the mail (8 days for priority mail, gotta love phil post) and in the packet is the various forms, DS-230 part I only, (no part II ?) and it is an expired edition, says at the top "expires 2007", sooooo do we download a current edition ? I have already and it expires in 2012, but i thought i remember seing a VJ member that got an RFE for using a newer form then the one they sent ???? and do we include a part II when we send this back for an appointment ? :help:

Since DCF is consulate processed... and unless the reported form problem was at the Manila consulate, then there is little chance that it will be the same. The best answer comes from the consulate itself... call or email them


YMMV

Hey Thanks for the quick reply ! yea I already shot them an e-mail but calling the call center is like talking to a robot, they have canned responces only and when you ask them a valid question they tell you to call the embassy and you get a recording telling you to call the call center blah blah blah, I just thought I saw another VJ'er with this same issue but I can't find it in a search.

Thanks again ! :)

It's ok to fill up the new version of DS230. When my husband first secured a form for the I-130, they also gave him an old form but we did not use it. Instead we used the new and downloaded form for I-130 and it was accepted anyway.

Hiya Danilou, I understand that the I-130 was accepted but that is not the Department of State, there is another thread here on VJ where the applicant recieved an RFE for filling up the current form, although it was another country, did you inquire with them ? did they say anything about the missing DS-230 part II ? I think we are going to play it safe and submit both forms with an explination, have't heard back with an e-mail but if we do we will share it with you :)

Hi Mrs Faith & Danilou et, al, here is what we recieved from DOS section IV of the Manila Consulate, please keep in mind Mrs Faith that the DCF procedures and going through NVC is differant, (we) do not send in DS-230II, we carry it to the interview filled up and unsigned, following the instruction not to write below this line.
