Can anyone who has went through the Cairo Embassy tell me what is included in packet 3? and how long does it take to recieve it? I have no luck contacting the Embassy and i have emailed them about 5 times every 4 days i think. But i would like to know is it normal if my fiancee has not recieved packet 3 by now? it was sent to him on August 31st. If anyone could help me out with these questions i would really appreciate it. I looked on the Vj updated information for the Cairo Embassy but it say packet 3 info. for the K3. Thanks in advance for any help.

4.3)...What type of paperwork does the fiance(e) receive from the Consulate?

A...Exactly what gets sent will vary depending on the Consulate, but the first packet to arrive will most likely contain the following:

* DS-2001 (or OF-169 or UK/85) -- This is your main set of instructions. It is also a checklist of items required for the interview.

* OF-167 -- information sheet about financial responsibility. You may also receive an I-134 Affidavit of Support form.

* DS-230 or OF-230 Part 1 -- biographical data sheet.

* DS-156 -- Nonimmigrant visa application form

* DS-156K -- Nonimmigrant fiance(e) visa application

* DS-157 -- Supplemental Nonimmigrant Visa Application (for all males between ages of 16 and 45)

* You may, at this time, receive medical exam information, and a list of required immunizations.

* DSL-1083 -- An information sheet about police certificates, military records and more.

In December, 2001, the State Department announced a change in the name of Packets 3 and 4, which were the instructions, forms and appointment information. They are now referred to as "Instruction Package" and "Appointment Package". Some of the forms are renamed slightly as well, so if the exact form numbers are different, just follow the instructions.

Sometimes, the Consulate may forget to send extra copies of these application forms for the children for whom a K2 visa is intended. If so, contact the Consulate to obtain the forms.

OUR TIME LINE Please do a timeline it helps us all, thanks.

Is now a US Citizen immigration completed Jan 12, 2012.
