Ok, so I've checked the UK guide (several hundred times) and searched through old threads but there seems to be some conflicting/out of date info. So, I've got my interview date for 17th October...

I've done/got the following:

DS-160 submitted and confirmation printed,

Original I-129f from my lady

Affidavit of support with last years W2, old payslips and letter from her employer confirming employment, slary etc

Paid fees and printed the receipt,

Supporting evidence of our relationship (phone calls, messages etc)

Passport ready and willing,

Appointment letter for the interview

NOA2 letter

My police certificate

Birth certificate...

So basically, have I missed anything?

Also, I read somewhere that I'm allowed to take my phone into the embassy now? Is that the case?

Thanks all!

Looks good to me, I read it over a few times and cannot think of anything else. Just make sure your birth certificate is the certified copy (long version, with both parents names on it)

Yes phones are allowed in the embassy, but they need to be turned off when you get to a window (to pass papers in/ the interview)

You don't need the NOA2 letter. A photocopy goes in with the adjustment of status. If you have the only copy, then photocopy it several times and stash everywhere just in case you lose it in London, forget to pack it to America, etc.

Proof of relationship is not asked for in London.

Review London's list. There are other things we have no way of knowing if they apply to you or not...deed poll, adoption, divorce, military.....

Phones: see the guide again http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/474161-london-k1-a-complete-guide/?p=6816206 You missed Post 11.

Not long now. Exciting times. :)

One thing you don't need ... is a coffee from the Starbucks closest to the embassy. ;)

Seriously, looks like you have things more than covered. Good luck with your interview. :thumbs:

An excellent point well made! Lol.

I shall re-phrase to say they have lumps of metal there that look very much like photo booths. No idea if they work :oops:
