With regards to presenting paperwork for the interview, what needs to be notarized? I hear that the EOR needs it, but what about copies of my passport, letter from Bank, and other letters to be presented?

I had the EOR notarized.

I also had a cover letter notarized that I included with our I-134 and documents but it was not required. I was a bit confused at the time so I thought better safe than sorry.

I don't recollect anything else being notarized.

IMO - nothing needs to be notarized.

But - with that said, there are advantages to having something notarized in Guangzhou, at the US Consulate. I am fan of having the EOR notarized there, you betcha.

If you have a strange case, where there is custodial issues - a notarized permission letter from the biological father can be useful.

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.

Thanks.

Unfortunately, because of my busy work schedule, I can't be there with my fiancee come time for the interview. I really wish I could, and she understands.

Is there anyway for her to get it notarized? From what I understand, only an American citizen can do that there.

Notarizing means that a notary public (in this case, a consular officer) witnesses you signing a document. Furthermore, the notary would probably make it into an affadavit, which is a sworn statement, meaning you have to be there in order to do the oath. In this case, the notary makes you raise your hand and swear that the contents therein are true and correct -- then they sign and stamp that they witnessed you doing the oath. That's exactly how it went down for me, a month ago, in Guangzhou when I had them notarize my EOR.

Thus, it is impossible to have someone else notarize something "for you" because... you are not present. (theoretically, it's probably possible with power of attorney, but that's another story).
