Hi Folks,

You have all been so helpful and im extremely grateful tho Im still in a panic about this process. Im currently filling in my packet 3. Im pretty sure I have all the forms. The following are my current queries..

1. on form DS-156k it seems to request documents to be attached (birth cert, police report and evidence of financial report) yet my understanding was no supporting evidence is to be sent at this time.

2.The DS156, after being filled in online can be signed and sent? Am I reading it correctly that 2 copies of this document and DS156k are to be sent?

I think this is it so far but more are bound to crop up.. this is crazy.. im so worried that ive filled things in wrong etc.. can't wait till this is all over..

Cheers.

Yes procedurs vary by consulate, some want only checklist and DS-156. London wants all forms mailed to them per DS-2001.

ok rather than me ask daft questions this is my plan of action as of right now.. please feel free to correct..

Ive filled in packet 3 and have printed off and signed 156 and 157 duplicates which I intend to keep as I cant see any instructions on these.

I plan to send all 5 forms with covernote and DS-2001 in the one go..

I have yet to receive my police reports and as a result cannot book or inform them of my medical date but plan to go to doctorss tommorow to check my vaccinations are up to date..

Will this work? going on others recent experiences it seems to have been successful..

Any ideas? :help:

Yep, looks to be the plan, Police reports should not take long, I would go ahead and mail back the forms.

Note Vaccinations are not a requirement of K-1, however having them done over there on the medical system may save you some money later. Vaccinations are a requirement of green-card and can be done in the states later.

Vaccinations requirements:

Age 18 - 64 are required to have:

  • MMR
  • Td
  • Variccella (AKA Chicken Pox)
  • The FLU if in season

Thanks so much for this.. I'll get cracking now..

Going to send you a document I just finished updating that might be helpful about the London process. Everything is explained on the London website as far as the documents, but I've organized it a little differently so maybe it will make more sense. Check your message box.

Yes. It's a google doc because I can edit that easier. Ally&Rach said it opened fine and I did a little more typo correcting.
