list of documents need to bring to the interview

Recommended Posts

Hi, all

The in-laws are having intervews soon in Guangzhou (GZO), They are doing Electronic Processing, so They will need to bring all original documents they we submitted for them. I am just wondering if they will keep all the original documents at the consulate or just needed them to verify the scanned ones. My wife and I sent in our marriage certificate scanned copy and her birth certificate scanned copies. but we only have one original copy that we might need in the future just in case. Will the consulte return those original copy to them once they verify them or they will keep them. I know they will keep all of the in-laws orignal birth certificates and marriage certificate and police reports. I wonder if I can have them ask them for our original copy back after they verify them in the interview. Please share with similar experience.

is the petitioner's original marriage certificate and birth certificate needed in her parents's petition anyway?

thanks for any advice in advance...

Have then take copies of all the originals, to hand in at the interview just in case. They should return the originals if you sent any. Asking for the orginals back should not be a problem.


In Arizona its hot hot hot.

Just one more suggestion in case you guys need. You can always try to have as many as original marriage certificates. When we went to the local civil county office, we asked them to give another five original copies and just paid some dollars for each original copy we wanted. So you can always take that suggestion as a back-up option. About your wife's birth certificate, she could have asked the local household registry police station to provide a few original copies as well. But I am not so sure if her local police station allows that. Normally they are fine with it. Just state the reasons and they will understand.

But if you have already made sure that you don't need to submit all the original ones of yours, you can send the copies instead.

re: civil docs on the DS-230/IV -

want originals back? bring originals plus photocopy, ask for originals back on interview day, expect nothing to be given unless your parents ask for it.
