Hello,

I am sorry if this sounds like a silly question but does my Fiancee has to submit the original docs or me as well?

If the originals are only needed for My Fiancee, can I scan mine in color including the I-134 and email her? which she can submit for 3.5 NOW (to save time), I can then courier the original from here which she can take to the interview?

Below is the list I am copying and pasting from the letter

2. Civil Documents
The following civil documents are required. Please note that you will need to submit an English
translation for all documents. You must also submit one photocopy of each original document.
 Original cirth certificates with English translation and one photocopy.
 Marriage certificate for any current or prior marriages, along with Urdu nika namas, if
applicable. Include English translations and one set of photocopies.
 Divorce/death certificates for any prior spouses, if applicable. Include English translations
and one set of photocopies.
 Police certificate(s) from any country (not required for time spent in the U.S., Pakistan,
Afghanistan or India) where you are currently living or have lived for more than one year
after the age of 16. Include English translations and one set of photocopies.
 2 visa photos against a white background, measuring 2x2 inches. Please note that photos
must be natural and not edited. We highly recommend that all applicants review our photo
guidelines to make sure the photos are correct before submitting them to the Immigrant Visa
Unit. Please right click here and select “open hyperlink” for more information on photos.
 Copies of the first 2 pages of each applicant’s passport. It is particularly important that we
have a photocopy of any pages listing your personal information (name, date of birth, place
of birth) and showing your photo. Please do not mail your passport to the Immigrant Visa
Unit, instead, bring it with you to the interview.

Yes. The instructions say originals plus photocopies.

I think they only need her documents. You sent your documents already when you filed her petition. I wanted to ask about the police clearance though. If the beneficiary has never lived outside of Pakistan, does that mean they do not need to get a police clearance and they will do a background check at the embassy?

There was an interview come up recently for Islamabad. It sounded like they had an exceptional case but it was pretty tough for them. I noticed you'll have your interview today so just wanted to wish you good luck! Let us know how it goes?
