pre-interview questions

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! Just getting all my info together to send in to Vancouver. I'm concerned about my passport. I have to renew it before my interview (hoping for May) If I send in all the info now with my current passport, is there going to be problems having a new one at interview time?

One other question, I am bringing my son with me to the states. I have a notarized letter of permission from his dad. We don't have any court documents for custody etc. We were never legally married. Has anyone been in similar situation? Any problems? I emailed Van. Consulate and they said the letter should be enough. Just wanted to hear if anyone had problems.

The letter should be enough, especially if that is what the consulate told you.

When you renew your passport have them send the old one back also. Then you have it if needed. You didn't mention if you already have a passport for you son, he will need one also.

Thanks! I guess I'm just wondering if there is any reason I SHOULD have an official custody doc. more for after the move. Hope the letter is enough, I trust it is if thats what they said.

My son does have a passport with 4 years left before expiration. I want to send the stuff to Vancouver this week so I can book and schedule my medical and interview for the time I want ( mid May) So I don't want to wait too long. I also plan to go to the states end of April so I need the new one before then, but want the old one back in time as well. I have a ton of stamps from the last 2 years for proof :)
