Letter of consent with authority stamp costs 200$?

Dear all!

I told authority at my location that I need them to stamp on my mom letter of consent on my engagement to present to the CO. I need the stamp just to proof that it is my mom real signature and finger print. They told me that there has a form for letter of consent that my mom just fill in the information, sign and put her finger print on, then they will sign and stamp on that form too to make it officially which costs me 200$.

I would love to get advice from Cambodian couple here who get through this process. Is it worth to pay 200$?

Or is it ok if I just bring the letter that my mom already wrote with her signature without any stamp to present to the CO?

Note: My fiancé and I did not make engagement party that's why we need approval letters from our parents to proof our engagement.

The CO will drill you about the no engagement party. It's mostly a tradition, and why not do it ? Be prepare for that.

Who told you to get letter of consent or this sort of paper ? To me it's non-sense.

You mom sign it, and it's enough. Basically, the CO won't even care about this piece of paper.

You are at interview stage: what is important is how you response to the questions.

Dear all!

Hi there,

First of all, $200 for a stamp is a scam. For engagement, if you/your fiancee are both 18 years and older, then you don't really need any stamp or a letter of consent(if anyone asks you do that, it's a scam too, don't let them scam you). You could just spend that $200 for a tiny engagement party somewhere at your family's home, and invite some guests to join and take pictures. The real proof to show to consular officers is not about how big or small of your engagement party, it's all about the relationship of the two of you: how you met, where and how long, evidence of your relationship, phone calls, trip together, emails/letters, something any real love couple would have, etcetera.

my two cents,
