Sending DS Forms to the London embassy

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have all my documentation that i need to book my medical and attend my interview and therefore need to send my DS forms off to the London Embassy but i have a few questions whilst filling out the forms!! I tried to find the answers in the forum but without much luck.

So can anyone please answer the following:

DS-230

Do i send part 1 only to the Embassy and take part 2 with me, or do i send part 1 and 2 to them in the post?

Do i attach the photographs to the forms or again do i need to take them with me?

Q.32

Will gaps in my dates for my Employment history for the last 10 years due to unemployment cause a problem?

DS-157

Q.12

Will gaps in my dates for my last 2 employers due to unemployment cause a problem?

Q.14

Will listing that i have firearms and explosive training during my military service be a problem with my application going through ?

Q.17

Whilst listing my educational institutes do i really need the day i started, i know the month but couldn't tell you the day i started, will this make a difference to the application?

Also what is the best postal service to send the forms back so they get them as soon as possible? Recorded delivery, next day ???

Many thanks

There is a pinned thread at the top for K1s in London. I think you have been pointed in that direction before in a couple of other threads. There are lots of answers. Here's a few posts with some of your questions answered.

DS-230

The K1 instructions on the website never mention Part 2

Explosives, firearms

It won't keep you from getting a visa

Photos, mail

Q.32

Will gaps in my dates for my Employment history for the last 10 years due to unemployment cause a problem?

Q.12

Will gaps in my dates for my last 2 employers due to unemployment cause a problem?

**Write the dates and "unemployed" so you don't have time unaccounted for. They don't care if you were unemployed.

Q.17

Whilst listing my educational institutes do i really need the day i started, i know the month but couldn't tell you the day i started, will this make a difference to the application?

**Not a problem
