10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Im reading montreal reviews and am making myself sick with ?s..lol

I keep reading about loomis and dhl letters? Do i not just need my passport and scheduled appt letter?

I'm not sure how it is with K-1 visa applicants, but for IR-1/CR-1 applicants, you need to sign up for DHL/Loomis so they can return your passport to you. And starting a few months ago, they won't even let you inside the consulate until you show DHL confirmation.

When my husband registered with Loomis via the CSC site, I took a screenshot of his "account info" that had his name, passport number, and reference number. Then I pasted that photo into a document for him to print and present at the door. It looked nice, but the most important thing is to have a reference number to show for.

So I neglected to print the confirmation page out when I originally registered for loomis and now I can't figure out how to prove it. Does anyone know? I can go in and change the place, but it just goes back to the main page it doesn't give any kind of confirmation page. I can see a page that says which consulate, which branch for loomis and it has the passport # and DOB. If I screen shot that is that sufficient? Our interview is next Wednesday and we fly out on Saturday so I need to get on this!

I don't remember having any DHL confirmation page when I went for my interview in Sept 2011. My interview was for a K1 visa, they really didn't ask for any of the paperwork I brought.... You can check out my consulate review in my timeline!

It is needed before you can get in the consulate. Someone was turned away in front of me as they could not find their receipt.

I'm not sure why someone did a screen shot as my receipt was a document that I could save to my computer and print when I wanted.

You need to register (take 5 min) to obtain a Reference Number. Take that reference number with you along with the PP and appt letter. These three things are must to enter into the consulate.

I don't recall having that option, so I created a doc with the screenshot.

Here's a screenshot of the screenshot :) It worked fine to get my husband in the door.

That summary page you see when you log on, that shows the DHL location you chose, that IS the confirmation page.

I don't recall having that option, so I created a doc with the screenshot.

That's exactly it!! I either did the same as you and took a screenshot, or I printed the web page out, can't remember laughing.gif

Aha! Thanks! When I logged back in today that page was the first thing that showed up so I screen shot it and printed it out! I guess I wasn't looking for the first page to actually be what I needed and for once it was. Thanks everyone!
