Since the requirements differ for each consulate, make sure to let VJ know which one you will be going to or try a search on the consulate's website for the papers you will need to submit before the interview.

Usually, you do not need to send anything in besides the 'forms'... i.e. no affidavit yet etc. but again, that's up to the consulate to decide what they want... always best to check on official .gov sites..

For the embassy in London what ever you do don't send them your Birth Certificate, take it will you on the day of your interview.. That is why it has taken me so long to finally get approved, I sent my birth cert, his W2 and my police certificate.. They lost them all and I had to wait to get them again before attending the interview.

yeah alright, saw you'll be in london -

barron is absolutely right, according to the london consulate requirements, do not send in any birth cert, affidavit, police rec, etc.

just follow each step as recommended and you will be fine

http://london.usembassy.gov/interview_documents.html

these will be the documents you need to bring to the interview

Hey guys.

We've been lurking here throughout our application so thanks for the help so far!

Documents for the interview.

The info says to bring originals of all documents from the first package so does that mean that I need my Fiancees birth certificate?

I know that the document list HERE doesn't say anything about it specifically but we want to be sure.

Also the site has changed since I got my letter and the address they sent me (http://london.usembassy.gov/cons_new/visa/iv/iv_15.html) no longer works. Every time I try and find something it just seems to be in the wrong place or not relevant to our K1.

I hate this whole thing right now :(

I guess the correct URL you are looking for is http://london.usembassy.gov/iv_15.html.

They kept on changing the FRA consulate website earlier this year - pretty aggravating isn't it...

As for the birth certificate... In my case, in Frankfurt, a copy of my fiance's BC was enough.

On the document list you mentioned it says that you can bring either the original or a certified copy...

But of course, I am not sure about all that... if in doubt, feel free to contact them through e-mail. They are pretty helpful.

All the best... it's really not half bad once you got that darn visa in your hands :thumbs:
