Email or mail civil documents to NVC/Consulate?

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

We have a question about how and when we are to submit our supporting civil documents (birth certificates, passport copies, police clearances, marriage certificate, ID photos, etc.). For what it's worth, we're working through the US Consulate in Montreal...

Here is where we're at so far:

NVC case number assigned

Affidavit of Support (AOS) invoice received, OPTIN email for Email Processing sent and accepted

Paid AOS bill

Emailed AOS package to NVCElectronic@state.gov

Immigration Visa (IV) bill invoiced

Paid IV bill

Completed IV and ALIEN REGISTRATION (DS-260) online

At this point we have gathered all our civil documents and we have the capability to scan them.

What I'm wondering is if we are supposed to:

1. Either email (and if so, to what email address?) scanned copies of all our civil documents now that our DS-260 has been submitted, or

2. Mail originals or certified copies of these documents (if so, to what address... the Montreal consulate?)?

If anyone could point us in the right direction, we'd greatly appreciate it!

(P.S. I'm sorry if this is a silly question, it's just that we have to navigate so many websites to find what little concrete information we can, and I'm really hesitant to part with original copies of our marriage and birth certificates if it's not necessary.)

Since you opted into the EP program, you'll be emailing the IV package, exactly like the AOS package. Same email address. You'll then bring the originals to the interview where they'll take them from you for a bit, review them, then return them to you after a successful interview.

Also check out Saylin's profile and information. She, like you and I, went through Montreal. I believe when you scan the files they need to be in PDF form as well... Could be wrong but I thought I read that on the NVC website.

This is exactly what I needed to know! Thank you so much! Also, I just saw the Montreal wiki you prepared. SO helpful, I can't believe I didn't find it earlier! :bonk:
