Documents Required for Interview - Beneficiary

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I am working on putting together a list for my finace of the documents he needs to ensure he has available to send to the consulate once he is informed that he can schedule his interview for his K-1 Visa. I understand that there are documents he will need to send in ahead of time (copies) and then documents (originals) that he will take with him to his interview. I have obtained some information off of the Web Site from the Consulate in Ankara, Turkey, however, I wanted to confirm that I have everything in order. Anyone who might be able to provide some information or insight, it would be greatly appreciated. Below is a list of documents I have listed so far that he will be required to provide for his interview. Thanks

Documents Already Provided in my Initial K-1 Visa Application that will be forwarded to the consulate in Ankara, Turkey

G-325A Biographic information, 1 completed by both my finace and I

Copies all pages of my U.S Passport

Divorce Decree proving that I can legally marry

Statement from both my Finace and I regarding our intent to marry

Passport style photographs of both my fiance and I

Form I-129F

Proof of relationship

Proof of personal meeting within 2 years

Pictures of us together

Documents I show my Finace will need to provide as copies prior to his interview and as original documents during the actual interview

Full Photocopy of all pages of his Turkish Passport

Birth Certificate (Nufus Kayit Ornegi) - Signed by Vital Statistics office and with full translation and certification of translation

Criminal Record (Arsiv Kayitli Abli Sicil Kaydi) - Current and Archived - With full translation and with certification of translation

2 passport style photographs

Medical Report from medical examanation taken prior to interview - DOES THIS NEED TO BE TRANSLATED AS WELL?

Additional proof of relationship

Appointment letter received from NVC

Are there any other additional documents that I am missing that he will need to provide? Does anyone have a list or anything from USCIS that provides a detailed exact list of the documents he will need to provide? We are both so scared that we will forget something or fail to provide something and he will be asked to come back for a second interview. We are trying to avoid this from occurring.

Thanks to anyone who reads this post and can help me compile a concise list. I appreciate anyone's assistance!!!!

Have you checked on these pages for more information? I just glanced at them but they both seem to have a lot of information about what you will need for the interview. The only glaring omission I can see is your proof of affidavit of support (financial support form)or I-134.

Also as far as I know with all countries the documents presented in the interview can be in English or the predominant language of the country where your consulate is located.

The embassy website you are referring to is this, right? http://turkey.usembassy.gov/media/pdfs/k1k2_instructions_101510.pdf

I found these official K1 visa instructions to be very clear and helpful.

Medical report will not have to be translated. What is the appointment letter from NVC? Don't forget about the I-134 and all of the DS forms.

If you have any more specific questions let me know, as I just went through this a few months ago.

Thank you so very much. Yes, I went into the site, got all the information. Sent it to my fiance and now we are working on getting everything pulled together. Just waiting to complete my tax return for 2010 and then I will be sending all the docs off to him so he has everything from here on my end. I really appreciate your response and help. Thanks
