Hi,

I just wanted to get some clarification of the forms that I need to send back to the London Embassy and any other documents.

Send back??

DS-230 part 1

DS-156

DS-157

DS-157K

On the DS-156K form it says that some documents have to be attached, birth certificate, police certificate, evidence of engagement and financial support. I was under the impression that these needed to be taken to the interview with me. Is this the case? Or is this correct and I need to actually take this form with me to the interview?

Please help, feeling a bit confused. Reading forms is all very good but I would like to hear from actual people, to know what I'm doing for sure. :wacko:

Oh, one more thing please...

Where does the DS-2001 (Applicant Readiness form) get sent or sent with?

Thanks!

Yes, send back the DS-230 Part I, DS-156, DS-156K and DS-157.

Send copies of the documents required by the DS-156K. That would be birth certificates, police certificates, etc... Do not send the Originals. Take the originals to the interview. You need to turn in the original police certificate but all the others such as a divorce decree or birth certificate you want to keep the originals, so kust take them by hand.

The DS-2001 says you have all of the forms and documents they ask for. Sending it back with the rest of Packet 3 which is all the forms and copies of documents listed above.

Good luck.

Thanks so much, that's a great help. Do I take the I-134 with me too or send that in? Also the form says evidence of engagement. I have the ring receipt, a copy of that is ok?

Sorry to be a pain.

You can carry in the I-134.

Usually for evidence of engagement other people post that you only need a letter of intent to marry. But I think a copy of the ring receipt is great. I also used the ring receipt.

Good luck.

With all respect to Audy_Rob, you have been given incorrect information for procedures in London. Each consulate does this stage differently and you should follow the directions for London.

You will send in the 4 forms:

DS230 - part 1 which is pages 1 & 2 - Sign page 2.

DS156 - (in duplicate) Okay to sign

DS157 - (in duplicate) no signature required

DS156K - Do not write below the line. You sign in front of the officer.

If you have the items on the checklist, then check it off and mail it with the four forms for fastest service. If you don't have the items in hand, then you can send in the checklist separately later. They will start your file with the four DS forms, but they will not give you an interview date until the checklist is returned as it is what tells them you have everything ready for the interview.

All the items on the checklist (birth certificate which shows your parents names, police certificate, I-134 etc) are taken to the interview. Nothing is mailed in but the four DS forms and the checklist.

London will not ask for a new letter of intent, nor do they look at evidence of your relationship, photos, emails, or engagement ring receipts.

You will find this VJ Wiki article and related links very helpful UK specific info

Oh wow! Ok that's really good then. I have all my forms ready so I'll get them sent off right away. I don't have the checklist yet, I understand you can only get that with the packet 3 letter, so I'll do like you say and send that in when I have it (hopefully any day now). Which by then I'll have my police report.

Sorry, just one more thing. Do I have to wait to be told when I can book my medical??

Thanks so much!

This page has all the forms and the checklist in the right column. http://london.usembassy.gov/iv_15.html

It's basically your P3 info. DO NOT mail your forms in until London has acknowleged logging in your file. Normally their P3 letter is the acknowledgement, but there are tips in that Wiki link to know before you get the letter. However as soon as that info is available, your letter will be generated so maybe not worth the calling and calling.
