Hi,

I am looking at all the information I need to provide. Some of it seems redundant.

For Example, the Bangkok Embassy requires the Birth Certificate and Translation for the I-130. Later is said you need to provide it again for the interview. Are they talking about the original or are you just giveing more of the same?

Thanks,

David

You are providing more of the same...Here is what we did:

With the Petition to USCIS (which will also be forwared to NVC,) we submitted copies only

With the Packet 3 mailed to the Embassy, we submitted copies only

To the interview at the embassy we provided copies, but we had the originals there to show them if asked.

Good luck

Always carry originals and submit copies as per the above posts.

As I recall the consulate eyeballed every single original at original I130 submittal and returned them. (Including the original stamped translations). They kept copies of everything that is on their list.

The words government and redundent often fall in the same sentence LOL. Just give 'em what they want.

A small correction:

With Packet IV - the embassy requests originals of everything (a repeat of in-person filing documents) as well as the original passport. SO - BC, marriage cert, passport, ALL have to be original and mailed in.

Freezes my blood thinking of some foreign mail handler with all that precious documentation.

grrrrr

I agree with everyone else. Submit copies (try not to mail originals!) but when you go for in-person interviews, always bring copies and originals. :-)
