I somehow missed the instructions that said they required proof of my sponsors' citizenship. So I just had to send in copies of their birth certificates/passports. I guess it slowed us down a bit, but I was quick to respond back to them, so it wasn't too bad :) Good luck on your process!

Once officially approved it can take up to 30 days to receive but a week or two is more typical.

Mines also on Thursday, we don't have a lot of the stuff it talks about on the appointment letter, so really hoping we have enough evidence

Good luck to you too then! I sent in pretty much everything we had when I applied, so I'm just going to bring copies of it all i guess. We're living with family at the moment, so no lease, but my MIL wrote a letter which stated that we were living in their house together. Just bring as much as you can....even pictures doing various things together are better than nothing. They'll probably also look at how you are acting together at the interview.
