I've gone thru the forums for documents to submit to VFS. Here is the list we would like to submit 7 business days before interview at Chennai VFS for the interview in Mumbai.

1. Copy of passport - all pages

2. 3 Passport Photos

3. DS-230 Part I(Signeed) and Part II

4. Copy of Birth Certificate

5. Copy of Marriage Cetificate

6. Copy of Police Cleance Certificate

7. Medical report (except X-Ray)

8. Fee - Rs. 393

Do we need to submit all supporting docs like hotel bills, flight tickets and phone records to VFS or take it directly to the interview. Please share your experience.

Also Is 7 business days sufficient to submit in Chennai VFS for interivew in Mumbai.

Thanks in adance

For 3) Its a new DS-230 filled part 1 signed and part II unsigned

new DS-230 filled/signed, are you sure? i don't understand why they want another DS-230 filled/signed since we already submitted DS-230 to NVC, which will be forwarded to US Consulate in New Delhi.

Since all these documents have already been submitted to the NVC, more than likely, these will not be included in the list of documents you need to submit to VFS. If you hadn't submitted copies of these too to the NVC, then you need to submit 'em to VFS.

You don't need another DS-230. Just carry the copy with you.

I've clarified with VFS. Except for the medical report, we do not need to submit anything to VFS unless we've been issued with a checklist. All proof of ongoing relationship, etc, need to be hand carried on the day of the interview.

Hi Divs,

I see, so only submit Unopened Medical report to VFS.

Q's: 1) What about Chest X-Ray? someone mentioned that we take Chest x-ray to interview in unopened Envelope.

Q's 2) Do we need Certified copy of our Birth Certificate and Marriage Certificate for Interview? we have submitted Original and a copy of each to NVC.

We take the chest x-ray exactly how they're given to us by the hospital. Don't worry too much about it.

Q's 2) Do we need Certified copy of our Birth Certificate and Marriage Certificate for Interview? we have submitted Original and a copy of each to NVC.

No, we've already submitted the original and a copy, so we don't need to.

Like I said, we already have a checklist. And mine says that the NVC has received all the required documents. So you don't have to worry about anything.

I mean, when we give our medical report to VFS, do we also have to give our Chest X-Ray report to VFS also?

or

do we bring the chest x-ray report to the Interview?

We submit everything to VFS unless otherwise specified.
