What documents do we need to have handy at the POE. These are the things I can think of. Please add to the list

1) Passport

2) Sealed envelop from the consulate

3) Customs declaration forms.

Do we need to fill any other forms they provide in the flight? Anything else that was asked by the POE officer?

I was told that I needed to carry with me and hand over my x-rays.

I'v been wondering the same thing though,I know I don't have to fil out the green I-94 that I normally do (VWP) but is there another form instead?

Seriously? x-ray?

The doctor told me everything I need is the forms he gave me in the sealed envelope. He said the Consulate would open it at the interview and then put it in the mysterious brown envelope.

I had even asked him if I had to take the x-ray to the interview and he said I won't need it anymore since he had filled out the medical papers already.

I was just about to toss it! :bonk:

One more ####### to carry around :wacko: :wacko:

They probably won't ask for the x-ray...my husband was told to carry it too and to give it to the immigration official, but they wouldn't take it. We still have it here in the house, just set it aside just in case. Still not sure what to do with it!
