Getting Ready for NVC - Do I need the beneficiary Birth Certificate & Police Clearance?

Hi All,

I'm just getting ready for the NVC stage (we're currently 60 days after NOA1).

I'm just wondering what paperwork I need to have ready in time for NVC to fly through it.

I know I need to get ready the: I-864, Tax Transcript (petitioner's), Cover letter, Answers for the Ds-260/Ds-230

1) Do I need the beneficiary's birth certificate at NVC stage or is it only for the interview?

2) Do I need the police clearance for NVC stage or just for the interview?

Are there other documents that I Need to submit at the NVC stage or are all the other documents for the interview stage?

We submitted divorce certificate, marriage certificate and such for I-130, do we need them again before the interview?

Just a little confused...

I've read the guide but can't figure out how/when they request these documents.

Thanks,

J

You will need to submit those items to the NVC. If you opt for EP, then you will scan and email them to the NVC and bring the originals to the interview.
