NOA2 - Documentary Evidence

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Canada

Hello all,

I just had a question. I am currently waiting for my NOA2 to come in the mail and I am making sure that I gather everything I need for it in advance. However, I need my fiance to send me another copy of what we sent in for the I-129F. It says on the checklist to send the original documents. Does that mean I actually need his actual birth certificate if I included a copy of it in the I-129F? Or does it mean that I can bring an original of my birth certificate, etc., and a photocopy of his?

I am so confused. Please help!

what checklist, exactly, are you referring to ?

if you can post an url, or an instruction reference from a form, that'd be helpful.

re: 'everything I need in advance' for the NOA-2 arrival - pardon? What?

There's a whole nother step for getting a K-1 visa, and that's 'to fill out the Visa Application' once the I-129F petition is approved.

Ya don't need the NOA-2 document to include in any Visa Application - but - ya do need the NOA-2 letter when/if an AOS package is filed, after marriage in the USA.

if yer referring to the checklist from the EMBASSY - those 'original documents' are

--birth certificate

--police clearance certificate

--prior divorce documents, if any.

Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

You should have made a copy of the original since it is not guaranteed that it won't get lost, damaged or the USCIS ate it ;o). I am still waiting on my NOA2 as well and have all the supplementary information since we filed. Correspondence, trips that I have taken over there, police reports etc.

Good luck. Threre are some good forums on what to include look under the guides http://www.visajourney.com/content/guides to help you compile all of the information.
