Got blue

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Interview was August 3. My wife said everything was going fine and that they even slipped the pink slip in but then took it back after one more question. They asked if she had relatives living in the U.S. She listed all the ones she knew which was a lot. About 7 families total. The interpreter took the pink out and gave her the blue.

The questions were the usual: how we met, when we met in person, when was the last time, did we have a Dam Hoi, and wedding.

My wife messed up on questions about where I went to school. She couldn't remember what school and where it was located. The name is really long. Anyways blue sheet requires and updated timeline, list of my past residences for the last 10 years and a list of my spouse's relatives and residences in the U.S.

Date to submit, August 31.

be thorough in the info you generate for the response dont overlook anything or anyone... if you give it to them early.. be sure to be there on the 31st (one of you) to get a decision.. or at least to try to get one... the huge number of relatives triggered the blue... best of luck

Scott is correct. The family living in the US most likely triggered the Blue Slip. Address ALL the issues from the Blue Slip and submit them on the date the slips tells you to. Good luck :)

Her having a lot of relatives here is what was worrying me. Especially cause most of them recently came here within the last 3 years because her Uncle had them sponsored. My wife is also eligible to come here with her mother in a couple years also even if I didn't sponsor her. They also live in my area. Our families have been pretty close ever since we came to America as refugees.

Make sure you get infor for ALL of the names she listed, this was a problem with out denial, but it was the CO that lied on what Binh said, so if she mentioned a name make sure she has proof of where that person lived, NO EXCEPTIONS, good luck and once you submit everything you need, you should be good to go, dont sweat it to much, just as all the others said get the things they want and get ready.
