Lagos Embassy: P3 P4 Revisted

Filed: Citizen (apr) Country: Nigeria

I will try and post this message in Lagos Embassy review section for easy access.

What follows is a summary of the information received by me from my fiancée who actually eyeballed the so-called packets P3 and P4 and info below is based on my phone conversation with her regarding said packets.

Firstly there is no “packet” as such. There are sheets of paper and forms stapled together. There is no returning of P3 and collecting of P4 as may obtain in other embassies. You receive P3 and P4 together and are expected to

“return” P3 on the day of your interview.



P4 is actually the first page of the “packet” and contains, in the main, your interview date

P3 consists of the following:

•Instructions on how to fill DS156 and DS156K forms

•Page that mentions all the documents you would need (where applicable)- documents include valid passport, passport pictures (including specifications), medical records, police certificate, court records (where applicable)

•DS156 form (1 page front and back)

•DS156K form

•Letter to AIG requesting for Police Report

•Medical forms (needed for the visit to Kamorass Clinic, including instructions about medical report)

•Letter informing you of all other documents needed for the interview:

-Pictures of couple and other relevant pictures

-Other evidence of relationship; phone bills; certified copy of passport of petitioner; letters, e-mails, etc etc..

-Page on proof that beneficiary would not be a public charge (that is Evidence of financial support)

- Form 1-134 (affidavit of support)



Info above represents a summary of the info contained in the P3 and P4. The info above is not 100% complete as my fiancée was not about to read out every letter in the packets but I think you can get the general picture and work from here. The info above however contains the main items found in the packets. Please make sure you review other sources to be absolutely sure you have all the info you may require.

Note: Evidence of financial support would include the form I-134 above and other documents such as letter from employer, bank statements (6-12months), Tax returns (some say last year`s tax return, I personally included for the past 3years with W2s), Pay stubs (past 6-12months…..include at your discretion), Bank letter (stating your annual deposits, when you opened the account and standing of account). Please revisit the instructions on I-134 and review which evidence of financial support you may want to include with the form I-134 (see link below)
