DS 230 Checklist and Interview questions for Filipino Applicants

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, to anyone who went through the CR1/IR1 process, please let me know if I'm missing something.

1. Cover sheet

2. Certified copy (NSO copy) of birth certificate

3. Photocopy of Birth Certificate

4. Certified copy (NSO copy) of marriage certificate

5. Photocopy of marriage certificate

6. Photocopy of passport

7. NBI clearance in married name

8. NBI clearance in maiden name

9. photocopies of the NBI clearances

10. 2 pcs. of 2x2 colored photos with name and NVC number at the back

Questions:

Should I bring another set of this for my interview or will the US embassy in Manila use the packet I sent to NVC?

What else should I bring to the interview? I know that I should bring documents that will prove we're married like joint bank accounts, joint lease contracts, pictures etc.

Thanks in advance!

it is advisable to have two original copies of each document. when you receive your interview appointment letter, it is noted there that applicants are still required to bring the original documents in the interview even though the applicant has already supplied the NVC with those documents.

what about the NBI clearances? Do i have to send 2 (with maiden name and married name) clearances or 1 (with married name) will suffice.

You don't have the one w/ the maiden name with the "de" between the married & maiden?

Oops. Sorry I missed item 10 on your list. Had something else on my mind when I was reading this. I couldn't edit either bcoz I'm on my phone. Anyway for Mhay's interview she had copies of everything I sent the NVC & photos. I think they only were interested in the photos she brought. The CFO wanted more stuff than the embassy wanted.
