(Cambodia) INTERVIEW IN FIVE DAYS!! AHH! One Final Question

16 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all!!

My fiance and I have our interview at the U.S. Embassy in Phnom Penh next Monday!!!! We couldn't have done it without our VJ community!!

However, we have one final question.

For our interview we are bringing the following:

1. Everything required under the Packet 3 checklist

2. Perfect replica of everything submitted for our I-129F, including evidence of our relationship.

3. A perfect replica of everything submitted for the I-134, including supporting documents

4. Updated evidence of our ongoing relationship (facebook, phone records and so on)

All total, this adds up to be almost 7 lbs of paperwork, over 3 inches thick.

I was wondering if anyone has advice about how I should organize it?

I have everything listed in a cover letter at the moment, with the following order:

1. Packet 3 stuff (medical, police records, receipt from paying the interview fee)

2. I-134 replica with supporting documents

4. Brief timeline of our progress and relationship

5. Perfect replica of our initial I-129F submission, which includes evidence of our relationship, our scanned passport pages, pictures together, plane ticket, itinerary, bank account statements showing purchases made in Cambodia, a large number of letters of support and so on

6. Letters of support and blessing from both our parents

7. Evidence of our ongoing relationship

My question is, should I organize things by how they appear on the Packet 3 checklist, meaning I would pull out all our relationship evidence from the perfect I-129F replica to put on top with his medical, police records and so on?

Or should I leave things how I have them? Goodness, we are so nervous,and so excited. Any advice helps. Thank you all!

Hello Most Excellent TBoneTX! I really appreciate your organization skills and keeping these forums ship shape, but I was kinda hoping to direct my question to all interviewees as a whole? As far as I can tell, things are pretty similar between what Cambodian applicants have to submit and what everyone else submits. I was more interested in how people in general are organizing their final interview documents. Everyone has to submit proof of their relationship right? I was most nervous about where to put this in relation to everything else. But Mon is probs right. I'll bet they rearrange everything we've spent 8 months preparing anyway. :)

Hello! My finance is live in Cambodia. And we decided to do K1 visa . I visited her 1 time already .i didn't propose her yet , because I want to propose when she arrive the US . My question is , will it hurt the interview because we didn't do any engagement party there ? Will it be ok if I didn't propose her there ?

Hi Theary! Do you already have an interview date? Feel free to message me if you have any questions. I think they do recommend you meet at least once and propose in person. A fiance visa is kinda for fiances, you know? :) So happy for you and your beloved! Congratulations!

No i didn't propose her yet , because I plan to propose her when she arrive US , I hired the lawyer , and she said it is fine . Just I have to see my fiancé in person within 2 year . I spent two week in Cambodia . And then we decided to do K1 visa . But when I read the sample question about interview , I see they might ask when was the proposing, so I am worry it might hurt the appointment

They didn't ask us about our proposal in our interview; just about when we intended to get married. You don't even really have to stick to the date you give them; but it's good to have a plan. If they ask when you're planning to get married, just focus on that and leave the proposal out? Best wishes for your interview and life together! :)
