For the interview...

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

I am just going through everything that I should bring to the interview and I am a little confused as to why a number of the members here are bringing evidence of their relationship (eg. pictures). On the Packet 4 checklist for K-1, I did not see where I am supposed to bring any of that info so I am wondering if I should be bringing things like that.

Thank-you! :)

not sure if anything has changed since our interview back in fall of 2010, but they ask for "proof of ongoing fiance(e) relationship." while the strongest evidence is likely things on paper (ie, boarding passes on same flight sitting next to each other, proof of visiting each other in terms of receipts, engagement ring receipt/insurance paperwork, etc etc, boarding passes on flights to see each other, etc.), some photos (especially with family members) may be helpful. we took a few photos with family members and from previous trips, but were not asked for any of the proof of ongoing relationship!

it ends up being a lot of paperwork for the K1 interview! good luck!

Hmmmm, interesting. I had always heard that you need proof of your continued relationship after applying for the K1 visa. Phone bills, emails, passport stamps, etc. The same info you needed for the K1 app, only this info has to be dated for after the K1 app was filed. Hope this helps!

i guess they got rid of the "proof of ongoing relationship" that used to be on that list. i remember the lists between the website (where you book your interview) and the checklist on pkt 3 differed slightly.

it looks like if it is not on any list, you don't need photos or proof of ongoing relationship.

better to be overprepared rather than underprepared however, was my rationale for this entire process!!

Bring anything and everything possible, even if not requested. You will be grateful you did later! You never know what they will ask when there and I'd rather have everything than to be placed on hold until later. We had tons of evidence and during our interview and it was more than sufficent to have visa granted same day although I think they initially wanted to deny. The CO even asked my wife how she knew to bring all of this evidence and she replied my husband.

VJ prepared me for anything and everything. Thanks to everyone's great insight and info!

I agree, it's best to bring any evidence that you have. I rarely hear of Montreal asking to see any of it, though!

So to get an idea of what we should bring, how many pictures, email chats etc. should I photocopy, or would the originals be ok?

I brought 25 photos from diff times we were together.

Brought a bunch of print outs of emails and chats and phone records.

They didn't ask to see anything. It was on the list to bring proof tho back in 2009.
