Hiya,

Well our visa interview is coming up in 40 days (not like im counting or anything :P ) and I want to know what sort of originals my fiance needs.

I KNOW that he needs:

his original birth certificate (plus one copy)

his original police certificate (plus one copy)

his passport

passport photos (US size)

visa fee receipt

interview letter cosponsor info (all originals)

BUT....

the package I sent him (a copy of the entire I-129f packet) that I sent....does he need my ORIGINAL divorce decree, ORIGINAL birth certificate (mine the USC)....

I ask because they are just copies that he has...from when I sent the original I-129f packet. In London I am getting the impression they dont really ask for that stuff...

please help!

He won't need your original birth certificate - no. It's really about 'him' at this point... but with regard to the divorce decree, hopefully someone else can pipe in as I'm not sure on that.

NO I-129F petition package

NO evidence of your ongoing relationship

NO NOA2

NO USCs birth certificate

NO original USC divorce decree

The only thing original from the USC needed will be the signature on the I-134 and the employer letter (if that is part of your income evidence).

Here's the list from London. Look it over and see what applies to the one going to the interview. It's all about the Brit now.

Birth Certificate (version with parent's names on it)

Adoption Certificate

Passport (with at least 8 months of validity left beyond visa date)

Marriage Certificate

Termination of Prior Marriages

Military Records

Affidavit of Support (I-134 and two good proofs of income)

Police Certificate(s)

Court and Prison Records

Photographs (2 passport style)

Translations (of anything not in English)
