Waiting for London Packet 3 (K3)

Hello Everyone!

We're waiting for our Packet 3 to arrive. We were told on 9/26 that our case was to be sent to the London Visa Unit 'within a week'.

Does anyone have a copy of the coverletter and check list for Packet 3, or alternatively a list of exactly what is contained in it for London?

Right now I'm working on getting the completed DS230 & DS156 back to my wife - to send back immediately.

Is there anything else required immediately? She has sent off for the Police Cert (Subject Access) and has been to the Doctor for a Vaccination history.

There is definitive info on the NVC site pertaining to the IR/CR1, but not the K3.... :(

Thanks for any information or pointers!!

Yes - We've allready seen that!

But still, there are questions - when I134 is needed, what to send back immediately, evidence of relationship items.

Thats why a copy of the checklist was requested.

I'd like a little graphic with a sign that says 'Please read people's entire message before replying'.

:) [Thats a friendly pun!] :)

If you go onto the site www.usembassy.org.uk then go to the forms section, you will see a form number DS2001...click on that and it should help you to get together what you need for the interview...in packet 3 you will find the checklist, forms DS230,DS156,DS156K and info on getting a police report etc...can`t remember anything else that was in there...its great to have the forms ready then you can just send back the packet as soon as you get it...good luck

I read your post, did you read the embassy page? There's a checklist (of everything on the checklist) on there.

Packet 3 Contains:

DS-230-I Part I

DS-156 x2 (Full out online to generate barcode http://www.usembassy.org.uk/cons_new/visa/...electronic.html - Add photo to each, do not sign)

DS-156K (Do not sign)

DS-157 (Male only)

IV-15 Checklist

Information on how to book your medical

and - for post NOA2:

:D Thanks to everyone!

Muuuah - it seems that the list is IV-15 (DS2001 seems to be for IR/CR1)

http://london.usembassy.gov/cons_new/visa/.../visaforms.html

I think we have some good information on this now, but a couple of more questions too.

Looking at the forms on:

http://london.usembassy.gov/cons_new/visa/iv/docs169.html

> It seems that the DS230 form expired in 2004, however the NVC site has a exp_2007 version - arghh - which to use ??

Based on this information: http://www.usembassy.org.uk/cons_new/visa/...processing.html

> Is the DS156K needed for K3/I-129F ? (I searched VJ but found nothing definitive for London)

> It seems that the instruction indicates that sending the IV-15 checklist is after DS230/DS156++, but searching VJ shows that most people are sending them in together (as IV-15 kicks off the interview date) - can this be sent if one does not have in hand every piece of info - such as Police Cert ?

:( We've still not recieved Packet 3 !! NVC told us last Friday that they forwarded it on 9/22 :(

Thanks again everyone
