Hi everyone,

I'm currently in the process of putting together the 'proof of relationship' and other documents for my fiancee's interview. When I did the initial I-129F package, I ended up hole-punching and binding the documents together. Is this also necessary in this case for the embassy? Or it doesn't really matter this time around? Thank you.

I would say paper clips are much easier and better to look at but also whoever the CO that will be interviewing to you then they could easily find the documents or proofs.I would not suggest that having a hole and binding it together is a good idea :unsure:.I know how it goes in the US Embassy in Phils., and I am not so sure about there but since you have it already just continue it as long as you have all the proofs will be alright.

Goodluck to your upcoming interview :dance:

Just ensure that your materials, however you choose to organize them, will slide under the Plexiglass window at the consulate. Thick materials or stiff binders/backings will not fit, easily or at all.


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).

Thanks! I'll just leave them as is; that's less one thing to do. :yes:

Thank you for the advice. I'll just put them in a simple folder with labels so my fiancee will be able to find them easily. Thank you again. :thumbs:
