My wife attended the CFO Pre-Departure Seminar prior to receiving her visa. In fact, she attended not long after receiving her passport in October 2010. The certification you receive from the CFO at that time is valid for one year. Upon receipt of the visa, she went back to the CFO office to obtain the CFO stickers for both her and my stepson's passports (even though he did not have to attend the seminar, he was still required to have the sticker).

By the way, when you go to the CFO for the sticker, please remember to bring along the documentation you have gotten from NBI and NSO; she was asked to show this to them. She was also asked to provide passport size photos (for their records; they clip them to a form that you need to complete to get the sticker). Luckily she had them in her magic bag of documents. :)

If you have any concerns about what to take to the CFO on the day of the seminar/interview, let us know and we will provide the listing of documents that we gave to them. Take care and God bless!

Joe and Ann
