Preparing docs while waiting for NOA2

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am currently not working because I'm trying to focus on our K1 application. As I have a lot of free time and I wanna shorten the entire process after the NOA2, I'm wondering which documents I could already get or which forms I could already fill out while waiting for my NOA2 (NOA1: Feb 13,2012)

Please correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that for the petitioner?

Ah, you didn't mention which part of the couple you were. Sorry!

In that case, you should check the regional forum to see which forms are needed for your interview. For example, if you need a police certificate, find out if how long it's good for in advance of the interview. Or, gathering vaccination records. You could also gather information showing the ongoing relationship from your perspective, too.

Welcome to the forum.

Yep, perhaps they couldn't decipher whether you were asking about the beneficiary or petitioner activities after receipt of NOA2???

Here is the DOS site that speaks about visas and requirements, forms, etc. Contact your interviewing consulate for specific requirements for that consulate, there is some variation from consulate to consulate.

Good luck on your visa journey.

Sorry, my bad :/ I'm the applicant.

I will definitely check out the link and the regional forum, thank u!

You are welcome. It is a good idea to try to think ahead about the next step in the journey, just don't prep the financials too early, fresh data seems to be preferred. Lord knows there is lots of time to think between NOA1 and NOA2 !!!!

Hi. I’m the petitioner, but I thought I might be of some help.

I guess you already are aware of it, but the page below is the Frankfurt consulate page on VJ. I followed this page to get the info that I compiled below.

http://www.visajourney.com/consulates/index.php?ctry=Germany&cty=Frankfurt

This is the list of things that I had my fiancé prepare/find out before the NOA2

- Get vaccinated; at least with my fiancé’s insurance, getting vaccinated was cheaper than getting the titer checked. It’s especially important for us because I (petitioner) work with human samples and I don’t want to risk transmitting funky stuff especially HBV to him, but may not be applicable to you. He keeps a little booklet with all the labels and dates on it, and will be taking a photocopy of all the pages. And for HBV, he started immediately after I submitted the I129F packet (it takes 6+ months to complete).

- I sent him all the documents (DS-156, 156K, 157, and 230) printed, filled out, scanned into PDF via Email.

- I took the entire exact duplicate package that I prepared when I visited him after submission, and all the originals of the documents submitted (except my passport).

- I also had him inquire about the medical (same day walk in at the office near the FRA consulate) and the police certificate (if you appear in person and pay 2 or so at the Führungszeugnis, you can get it faxed to you within 3 days or so apparently; but otherwise, on average, a 2-week process).

- Find out where he has lived (longer than 6 months; the names of the cities) since he was 16.

- List Employment history for the last 10 years.

Now that I got the NOA2, I am planning on sending him the following:

- (Photos that we took together during my most recent trip to Germany)

- (Pages from my passport with new set of immigration stamps)

- (Boarding passes and a copy of the itinerary)

- A Letter of intent to marry with renewed date (dated close to his interview date)

- I-134 signed and dated (I-864 as well, though it’s really not necessary; just in case)

- An employment verification letter from my employer

- Tax return transcripts for the years 2010, 2011, and 2012

- Copies of my tax returns + W-2 forms for the past 3 years (not necessary if you provide IRS transcripts; just in case)

- Pay stubs (electronic copies; 3 months –worth before the interview)

Apparently, my fiancé visits a forum called Amerika Forum. You might also find it useful.

Sorry about the awfully long reply.

Best of luck to you.

Just you. The US Citizen will fill out the affidavit of support only (unless they require something else in your consulate and I don't know it. :P)
