best format to send documents?

Just asking what some others have done.Re: initial application.

Obviously there is alot of copies of everything and documents to send.

I have what I assume is approx. close to 1/2 inch of everything. I"read some folks say not to staple things, and others put "tabs" for individual sections. With so much stuff is it best to just use paperclips?.....Is there a recommended "binder" that everything can be sent in?

I read some have recommended attaching individual photos to paper backgrounds, while most just put them together in a plastic baggie.

I also read that someone said that when it's recieved, they take everything apart, and catagorize it all the way they want to. Is there a best way to insure documents don't get mixed up when they look at everything?

Also, anyones guess or input as to whether filing this time of year (October) is slower or no difference for Vietnam?

Much thanks any input,

Ronn

I used two of those heavy-duty binder clips (http://getsimplifized.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/binder-clip.jpg) to hold all the papers together at the top of the pages. I put tabs on plain sheets of paper between the sections. For the pictures, I stapled a plastic bag onto a sheet of paper (so that it would go easily into the clips, and the bag could still be opened). I don't know if it was overkill, but I put all that in a folder that was labeled with our names and "I-129F, Petition for Alien Fiance ORIGINAL SUBMISSION".

And I have no idea about how long the filing should take, I'm still waiting on mine! Good luck :)

ONLY use paper clips, binder clips and rubber bands. Nothing else is needed.

Good luck on your visa journey.

We used the same for us. The result was a very professional looking package, very easy to use and easy to dismantle.

High recommended!

Good Luck!

The USCIS processors will pull everything apart and reassemble it to their preference, so the less fighting necessary for disassembly, the better.

Before you submit your petition package, consult the experienced Vietnam filers to learn what front-loaded material should be included that the embassy should see (USCIS passes everything to the consulates). Including this extra material could save much time and heartache later, si man.


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).
