NVC Collect documents again?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Just looking through the 'LingChe NVC ShortCut' as I usually do when I'm bored and trying to be pro-active.

Right at the beginning, it states that for the beneficiary this is required:

All documents that pertain to the applicant’s petition are required, even if they were previously submitted to the CIS with the applicant’s petition.

I am a little confused to what it is referring to here. Do I need to collect all the documents that I submitted for the I-130 again?

At what stage would i need all this for again? The interview?

Do they not get passed on to the NVC?

Anyone help clear this up for me?

thanks

It means exactly what it says--if you are required to send documents to NVC, you MUST do it even if you sent the same docs to USCIS. The one thing about the whole process is to ALWAYS follow directions even if you think they make no sense !!

So true...and sometimes it feels like you just submitted documents so why do we have to send again??...many of the documentation for NVC is similar if not the exact same documentation you sent to USCIS but NVC requests it so we do it :)

sometimes the confusion lies in 'basic documents', as well - you know, silly things like

--birth certificate of foreign spouse [

--marriage certificate

--divorce document of foreign spouse [

then there's the heated debate about photocopies vs original documents vs certified copies of original documents.

Whilst LingChe does mention this stuff, IMO, it's best to review the DS-230 info up at

http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_3190.html read all of it, all pages, do a 'brain suck' about the documents.

but, let's boil down the words, a bit, yes?

It says 'applicant's petition' there, but I think is serious mistype,

as really it's talking about the 'applicants' application', which is the VISA APPLICATION itself.

documents needed for the 'visa application', or DS-230, normally consist of the civil documents on the foreign spouse. Many people submit the originals during I-130 submittal time, not knowing any better. IF you review that state.gov url thingie I posted, you'll see a list of civil documents that are required with the DS-230 submittal (Visa Application) so - look it up, make yer own lists, see what you sent off with the I-130 by mistake, see what you have in hand, see what you need to regenerate with the civil authority that first made the document, and go forth.

I think it would make more sense if the line read :

All documents that pertain to the Applicant’s Visa Application are required, even if they were previously submitted to the CIS with the Petitioner’s petition.

and yes, any document intake during NVC< those civil documents on the DS-230 DO GET CARRIED over to the Embassy with the casefile, but VJ writers have recommended to carry yet another set for interview day, incase something is actually lost between NVC and Embassy casefile transfer process. It happens, best to be forewarned and forearmed, rather than suffer a delay on interview day.

Good Luck !
