Recommended Posts

Hello to all!

I just would like to ask if i need to get another CENOMAR for my interview in jan. 28, 2013?. I did get one october 2012, but my interview for nov. 2012 was postponed due to sputum exam. I also have my fiancee's letter of employment dated Oct 2012, Do we also have to get another letter dated nearer to my jan interview? Thanks

CENOMAR is valid for 6 mons from the date of issuance.

I'm not too sure with the Letter of Employment (how current they want it to be) but I've requested it twice from my employer for Mike to bring at his interview (as we've moved our original interview date as well)

Good luck!

Why take a chance? Get an updated CENOMAR and letter of employment.

Your documents will be almost four months old by the time of your interview. It doesn't matter how long the CENOMAR is good for. The consular officer will sometimes ask for an updated one. You certainly don't want to walk away from your interview with a 221g in your hand.
