A lady from the embassy called Natoy and told him she was emailing packet 3. In her email she said to send in DS-156, DS-156k, DS-157, DS-230. THAT IS WRONG!! You are to only send in DS-230pt. 1 for and interview date.

Natoy then went and applied for a non-impediment to show he has never been married. Runs around 8,000JA.

After we sent in the DS-230pt1 there was another problem becuase in the email it also told us to send to Monroe RD. NO WE WERE TO SEND IT TO OLD HOPE RD. So Nattoy went and filled out another DS-230 and sent it to the right address.

Then a week went by and still no packet 4. So Nattoy emailed kingstonivinfo@state.gov. He put are case number on the subject line which will get you a faster response. Then BAM!!! 10 minutes later they emialed us packet 4!!!!!

WHICH READ:This office is ready to begin final processing of the immigrant visa applicant(s) named below in this case.

K-1 (Fiance(e)) Visa Appointment Checklist

Please obtain all of the documents requested before the date of your interview. Failure to do so will result in delayed processing of your application.

_____Passport: Valid for travel 6 months beyond date of visa issuance.

_____Photographs: Six (6) color photographs that show a full front view of facial features.

_____Application Fee: You must pay the non-refundable US$350 visa fee (in Jamaican dollar equivalent) and obtain a receipt at any National Commercial Bank Jamaica Limited (NCB). Each applicant, including children, must pay the non transferable fee, which is valid for one year.

We hope the above information addresses any questions you may have regarding procedures to receive a fiancé/fiancée visa. If you have any other questions, please feel free to send an email to kingstonivinfo@state.gov or visit the U.S. Embassy website at http://kingston.usembassy.gov

So now Nattoy has everything he needs for his interview. Except the medical and police certificate. He is going to kingston 2maro to get his police certificate and fingerprints which will cost around 4,000 JA. He has scheduled a medical which will cost 100US at the door and aroud 50us for each additional shots he may need. Which shouldn't be much becuase he has his past vaccination records.

Closer to the interview he will get the passport pics he needs and I also sent him 5 passport pics just incase. He will also pay his visa fees at the apprpriate bank. I sent him everything he needs from me so I think after he gets police certificate and medical and pays fees we will be good to GO:) Hope this has helped.

Thanks for this, very helpful

Just one question regarding : _Photographs: Six (6) color photographs that show a full front view of facial features. Does this mean any colour photos or passport style photos, and if passport style would they be US or UK size?

Many Thanks

Dave :)

This is perfect thanks so much

The five passport photos you sent him, were the photos of you?

Yes they were..I got them made a CVS, and made sure my hair was up...I can't remeber exactly what he needs them for, but I remeber reading he would.
