Immigrant Visa Appointment in Bogota Colombia US Embassy

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This will be my husbands 2nd appointment at the US Embassy in Bogota Colombia. (First appointment was in March 2011)

Our first appointment we attended together and we were denied a visa because of lack of evidence, after our denied visa, our i-130 petition was sent back to USCIS where we received an RFE (Request For Evidence) which was approved 30 days after. Case was sent back to NVC where they directed it to the US Embassy/Consulate in Bogota. We have an appointment for February and we wanted to know any helpful information available as this time my husband is attending the appointment alone because I cant travel due to work and school. We want to be prepared for anything they might ask or paper work they might need from us. We have tons of evidence that my husband will take to the appointment.

Please help us out with any important information.

This is the email we received from Embassy after requesting status on our case

Is this email the appointment letter or should I call and request one, because I remember the appointment letter being different last year, or will this one be ok?

Mrs. xxxxx:

The petition filed on behalf of Mr. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx was reaffirmed by a DHS office. Mr. xxxxxxx has been rescheduled for an immigrant visa interview on February , 2012 at 7:30am. Attach you can find the appointment packet, which includes visa information and the appointment letter.

Some of the documents in Mr. xxxx’s file are still valid. However, he must undergo a new medical examination and have current photographs taken. A new form DS-230 (Part I-II) must also be submitted too. In addition he must also bring a new police record (Pasado Judicial). He must also bring new Form I-864 (Affidavit of Support), 2010 tax returns and job letter from the petitioner.

If we may be of further assistance on this or any other matter, please do not hesitate to let us know.
