Hi tianxiong,

What step are you on where you have received this RFE? Have you already submitted the DS-230 package?

When I sent in the original I-130 package to the USCIS lockbox I included a copy of my wife's passport, copy of birth certificate, and copy of marriage certificate (no originals or certified copies). They do have the red seal showing that they were certified in Vietnam however. Is this similar to what you sent in?

Hi T,

yes I sent in the AOS and IV package together earlier this month. Yeah my wife's civil documents are similar. They were all copies with the certified stamp from the Vietnam government officials with the exception of the police report which is the original(ly luat tu phap) when sending in the IV DS-230 packets. We have a lawyer in the city to help us prepared all the necessary documents. All our documents are officially stamp and translated.

it's quite possible the reviewer doesn't understand what's in front of them.

Call into NVC, get a supervisor,

ask the supervisor to have another reviewer review the documents, or ask that a supervisor in the reviewing section review the documents.

The checklist doesn't make sense to me, knowing that you submitted official documents, certified by the issuing authority, into NVC.

Hi Darnell,

Yes that's what I was thinking. When i called in and talk to a nvc operator they said that they needed a true certified copy (a copy that looks like the original (color and paper material?) but Vietnam doesn't issue true certify copies of those documents i don't think, just photocopies from our originals with official Vietnam Government certified stamps by the intending dept. official.

Waste no further time on the first person that answers the telephone. You need a supervisor.
