Interview Checklist? (London)

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Timeline

Hi everyone

I am getting prepared for my interview in London. I just need some help with everything I need to bring. Please let me know if I have forgotten anything.

I have no kids, never been married, don't have any criminal offences and have never changed my name.

Things I have:

  • Passport
  • Police Certificate (original and copy)
  • Birth Certificate (original and copy)
  • Copy if I-129F
  • Affidavit of support (with supporting documents)
  • DS-160 Confirmation
  • New evidence of relationship
  • Visa appointment letter

Things I still need:

  • Photos
  • Visa interview payment receipt.

Is that everything I need, or have I forgotten something?

Thanks

The list looks good; couple of points:

- Although it is better to be safe than sorry in taking copies with you, it would appear the London Embassy no longer ask for copies. I know when I had my interview (nov 6th) I was asked for the originals only. I also wasn't asked for evidence of the ongoing relationship - but I did take it just in case.

- Re: the supporting documents for the Affidavit of support; I asked the lady taking in my papers which form of evidence would she like (we had: pay stubs, contracts, bank overviews, w2, tax returns - you name it I had it) and the the lady replied "just the letter from her boss/employer (stating her job, wage and ongoing contract). This is the easiest for us" - So no need to go overboard taking Affidavit evidence.

- Make sure the photos are US sized and not UK sized. There is a photo booth in the embassy - but I'm certain you'll want to be organized before then.

- Finally, keep your passport, DS160 and interview letter together for the first stage of the embassy process - no fewer than 4 people asked to view these documents before I even sat down in the waiting room.

Best of luck, I'm certain you will be fine considering you got this far - it really isn't too intimidating (the interview itself).

Tom.

Thanks Tom,

I really appreciate your time, and your help.

That's some really good advice. I will make sure that I have my passport, DS160 and interview letter together, and easy to get to. It's good to hear that they are pretty relaxed about the Affidavit evidence.

Thanks again

Looks like you are well prepared. I don't see anything missing.

Not going to be needed:

  • Copy if I-129F
  • New evidence of relationship
I know Visa Journey tells you to bring those things, but London doesn't ever want those.

And as stated, they no longer ask for photocopies. Somebody asked why a week or so ago at the interview and they said "we no longer do that."

I feel better now. It's so easy to doubt yourself. The backup feels good.
