Hey, folks!

I'm just about to start scanning all the docs for NVC (well, petition is still being processed by USCIS :blink: ).

My question is: can those scanned docs go on separate .pdf files, like i-864.pdf, 1040.pdf etc?

Because, I have not seen requirements for sending all scanned papers in one big file. In addition, it would be much easier to track the forms if they are not piled in one file and go separately.

One more thing: when you take all the papers with you to the interview - should you also have photocopies of all originals (since the embassy might ask for copies)?

Thank you

I would suggest putting the whole AOS package in one pdf file and all the supporting documents for the IV package in one pdf file, and then they're both emailed separately. I'm not sure if it's mandatory to do it like this as I've not seen it anywhere on NVC's site, but that's what I gathered here on VJ months ago and that's how I did it.

And yes, when you go to the interview, make sure you have the original packages as well as a photocopy for your records. They'll ask for the original AOS package. For the IV package, they're going to want to see the original/certified copies of the marriage certificate and birth certificate. They'll give these back to you. They'll also ask for the police certificate which you won't get back.

Thanks, Saylin, for your quick response :thumbs:

I'm gonna scan all that material and see how it looks like, since I'm attaching my 1040 with all attachments + i-864.

So, this main .dbf file will look somehow awkward

Why will it look awkward? Just make sure everything's in the same order as the cover letter.

What Embassy will the interview be at ?


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
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.

aha.

Remember, when scanning - it's best to have a scanning software that takes the scan into native PDF file type, greyscale or black and white (color scans can eat your hard drive space, making it impossible to send a smaller set), and from there, reduce the resolution either at the scanning device, down to 200 DPI, or use a PDF printing tool like CUTEPDF to reduce the output resolution.

Sure, it's a lot of pages, a lot of original docs to scan in, but if you pay attention to the settings on the scanning software, experiment for 'filesize of 10 pages', try to keep 10 pages under 500 kilobytes, you'll be golden with the 'big set' .
