The passport is not in the brown envelope, that I can tell you for sure.

The brown envelope contains X-men action comics and tickets to the football game.

<not really> I understand her passport will be stapled to the brown envelope. I believe it holds the papers the foreign consulate filled out at the time of her interview and I think your original packet that was forwarded to the foreign embassy by NVC. :lol::no:

The passport and brown envelope will be in a clear envelope, it is OK to open the clear envelope to retrieve the passport, but don't open the brown envelope.

Refer to this post on the same thing last week: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=33256

http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=34232

Regarding what's in the envelope, she didn't look through the whole thing, just noticed some of the paperwork since it's open at the top. She said that what she did notice was our DS forms (the 156 and 157, I assume), the copies of my taxes that I gave them with the I-134, and my paystubs from work. I would venture that the I-134 is in there too.

ok thats funny because you're post is the same one i read and it warned me about that particular thing to remember. thank you because its clearer to me now. so when ur fiance opened it to get the passport the brown envelope was not sealed. seems like mistake at the embassy of improper sealing in the first place.

good luck to you both in the future. patrick n relyn

Praying that you get your annulment soon and have the Annulment Decree (a copy of which you need to send in your I129F)... see Assembling the I-129F Package: Checklist ... Item # 12 http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.ph...mp;page=k1guide

When I got my brown envelope it came with a little letter stating that it contains the forms and documents supplied at the interview and before, with the I-129F. So it's nothing mysterious.
