Documents for DS-230 apart from that?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what you send back with the DS-230 apart from that and any addendum? I read recently on here that you also send a photocopy of the data page of your passport. And in the Choice of Agent package it refers to the DS-230 'and other documents'.

I am seeing my husband on Saturday (we are meeting in Bermuda for a week's holiday) so it would be great to know if there's extra stuff because I can take it to him. We are expecting the DS-230 any day and it would save me having to Fedex and lose a few days.

Our K3 was forwarded to London 3rd October and we want the green card to catch up because that's the one we want (like everyone does!)

Thanks for your help! B)

DS-230 Application Part I signed/dated: PartII Left unsigned

Birth Certificate

Police Check

Photocopy of Data Page Of Passport

Original Marriage Certificate

Original Divorce Documents (If he's ever been divorced before)

The Police Check and the Birth Certificate each have some details, as to what makes them acceptable. I believe he has to provide a police check for every place he's lived for over 6 months, since the age of 16. The Birth Certificate has to have the parents names on it, or something to that fact. There are some acceptable alternatives should a birth certificate not be available. I'm not exactly sure by memory what they are but it's clearly detailed in the instructions of the DS-230.

Good Luck! I hope this helps with your journey.

So when is the visa photo sent along - or does it just go to the interview?

And is this the part where it is advised to send along the originals plus one photocopy of each document?

Have a read of the NVC Timesavers thread which is pinned in the NVC forum. Within that thread you will also find an attachment in a post by sanctifyer that is a scanned packet sent to a member in the UK. You will also find other relevant information as to documentation in the NVC link in the first post.

If the beneficiary is in the UK then you dont need to send the police certificate..

But according to this posting by Aussiewench, all you need to send with the DS-230 to the UK is the Biographics Page of the passport. Is this not so?

Thats correct Jen. If you are only required to submit part 1 of the DS-230 then all that is required additionally is a photocopy of the biographics page of the passport. All other documentation is required for the interview. UK only requires that part 1 be submitted along with the biographics page of the passport.
