There have been recent changes to the forms. Be sure to use the most current or you may receive an RFE

2, for me the AOS bill shows "paid", this means ds-3032 accepted ?( i sent via e-mail )

They acknowledged our email and began sending documents to both of us. Have USC call them if you have concern.

3, my COA is ma wife in US. all further mailings are done to only her in US ? (i mean the i-864 and ds-0230 )

You must fill in the DS-230 completely and sign Part I. Fill in Part II but DO NOT SIGN (Part II must be signed when at interview). Very good reading here on VJ about speeding up the application process.

The I-864 is filled in and signed by the sponsor (refers to sponsors ability to support)

So we have to mail everthing ? :(

2,AOS bill paid

So

Ma wife s de PETITIONER (US CITIZEN) , so she gonna recive de I-864 next right ? ( they wont send

anything to me egarding I-864)?

next NVC will ask for IV bill n after paying it i (Here i am de BENEFICERY) will get de DS-230

(NVC will mail it to india)? n i have to fill it , sign part 1 and send it back,right ?

Thanku for reading ma Question..:)

If your AOS bill is showing as PAID then send in your I-864 packet.

Your IV bill will become available to be paid as soon as your DS3032 has been accepted.

Do NOT wait for NVC to send you anything unless you want to sit around for many months. Download the recent versions of the forms from the state department website and fill them out.

Join the NVC May 2010 thread, ya?

Most ppl not wait for NVC to 'send them anything', and instead, PUSH documents into NVC, based on online payment portal status (if it shows 'paid' - send it in)

Some NVC info

DS-230 - http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_3190.html

I-864 - http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_3730.html

General NVC stuff - http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_1335.html

but - since you are homed to INDIA - be warned - VFS wants a new set of documents , prior to interview day - so EVERYTHING that is sent in to NVC - must have ANOTHER set of ORIGINAL STUFF to hand in to VFS. When yer gathering the documents for the DS-230 - get TWO OR THREE ORIGINALS, per document. You'll need to have yer USC Spouse send you a complete set of the I-864, as well.

VFS sucks, much, for adding in this 'extra step'.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

Whoa Nelly ! Want NVC Info? see http://www.visajourney.com/wiki/index.php/NVC_Process

Congratulations on your approval ! We All Applaud your accomplishment with Most Wonderful Kissies !

Photocopies are fine for VFS, if the originals have been turned into NVC.

Thank you so much guys for your replay :)

1

I took this from the wiki

To whom it may concern:

Enclosed please find the Form I-864, Affidavit of Support for my sister ,JANILAINE V. PASCUAL, and supporting documents as follows:

* I-864 Coversheet (with barcode)

* Form I-864 (Signed and dated)

2

I took this from the wiki

DS-3032 barcode instructions

From VjWiki - The Immigration Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Go to web site idautomation[1].

* Type in the case number under "Data to encode."

* Under "Barcode symbology," select CODE 39.

* Select "No" for "Add check digit"

* Select "No" for "Add check digit to text"

* Select "YES" for "Show text below barcode."

* Change the "X dimension" (bar width) to 0.05

* Change the "Barcode bar height" to 0.5.

* Click on "Create Barcode."

Print out the result from the resulting pop-up window, cut out the barcode and case number below it, and paste it in the horizontal box on the DS-3032.

Tell me if both dealing with the same barcode

or, what i have to do to get the I-864 Coversheet (with barcode)

thanks in Adv..:)

Pay attention, non-EP NVC noobs. Here's Christeen's time tested formula to get you through NVC in one piece alive:

Petitioner: Get NVC # + give operator your email IDs + receive AOS fee bill + pay 70$ online + wait to show paid + print cover sheet + send I-864 AOS with all documents and case # written on each page.

Beneficiary: Get NVC# + receive DS3032 + send DS3032+ DS3032 accepted + IV fee bill available to be paid + pay & wait to show paid + print IV cover sheet + mail DS230 package with all original/certified documents

= wait for case complete + wait for interview to be scheduled.

Suggestions:

1) Have the beneficiary mail SIGNED extra DS230s to you so that you have them handy in case something goes wrong. Or you get hit by a dreaded RFE.

2) If you just received your NOA2, THIS is the time to get your tax stuff and police certificates sorted out. Don't waste time on this.

3) Double check the PCC requirements in the regional forums as they are country specific.

4) Check the pinned STUPID RFEs thread in IR-1/CR-1 forum before sending in your packages.

5) Mail your DS230 package to your USC spouse as soon as you get your NOA2. That way he/she can overnight it to NVC as soon as the IV bill clears.

6) Get your taxes, employment letter, paystubs, PCCs, civil documents etc. while you wait for the NOA2.

Currently the # of business days NVC is taking:

3-4 days for NVC to receive your case and assign a case #.

3-4 days to receive emailed links after case # has been assigned and email addresses been given to NVC operator.

1-2 days for the AOS bill to show as PAID.

1-3 days for DS3032 to be accepted.

1-2 days for IV bill to be PAID.

8-10 days for case complete after all your documents have been sent in.

Folks--please make sure your official VJ timelines are up to date. Remember this is our only source of predictions. Thankyou!

Regarding the AOS package:

First thing, I would recommend is that you print out the I-864 form and read the instructions about 2 times. Mark out the relevant portions and ask any questions you might have after that. I would suggest you read the guides for a comprehensive idea about how the AOS packet will comprise.

Recommended AOS package:

I-864 Coversheet (with barcode) for payment of $70

Form I-864 (signed and dated)

2009 Federal Tax Return/W2 and 1099s or IRS tax transcript.

2008 Federal Tax Return and W2 and 1099s or IRS tax transcript.

2007 Federal Tax Return/W2 and 1099s or IRS Tax Transcript

Letter of Employment

Pay stub(s) from the most recent six months

Bank Statements.

Remember, the USC petitioner will file a I-864 regardless of income. If your joint sponsor lives in the same household as the petitioner, then they will use I-864A. If they live in a separate residence, then they will fill in another I-864.

For your joint sponsor you will need proof of their citizenship/residency. For household member, you will need proof of relationship and same household/residence.

A guide to the DS230 packet for Indian beneficiaries.

--Cover sheet for Immigrant Visa Bill of $400.

--Two (2) Passport Size Photographs of Beneficiary (Beneficiary's full name, and date of birth are written on back of both).

--DS-230 Part 1 completed and signed by beneficiary.

--DS-230 Part 2 completed by beneficiary, unsigned, as of yet, per instructions.

--Original Marriage certificate

--Photocopy of Marriage Certificate

--Original Birth Certificate

--Photocopy of Birth Certificate

--Original Police Clearance Certificate from Local Police Station, Calcutta

--Original Police Clearance Certificate from Regional Passport Office, Calcutta

--Photocopy of beneficiary's Indian passport.

No need to generate your own barcode. Email the DS3032 from the beneficiary's email address.

hi joan28 I-864 IS ONLY FILL PETITIONER WHO IS USA CITIZEN

BENEFICERY ONLY FILL DS-230 FORM

IF YOU ARE BENEFICIARY YOU ONLY FILL DS-230 FORM AND US CITIZEN ONLY FILL I-864 ONLY US CITIZEN SEND ALL DOCUMENT TO NVC

Correction. Who fills out the forms is not important. What is important is who signs them. It is quite common for the US Citizen to fill out all the forms with information about the foreign beneficiary. Sometimes it's the foreigner that fills out all the forms, even the ones the US Citizen signs. Whatever works best for the couple will be fine.
