Confused...NVC documents

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Today I received a letter in the mail to say that the London embassy has my visa application - huzzah! But now is the confusing part. I followed the link given in the letter to see what documents I needed to take to the interview. (http://london.usembassy.gov/iv_15.html)

Now I'm looking at the pdf attached to "Step 2": http://photos.state.gov/libraries/unitedkingdom/164203/cons-visa/iv_and_k_interview_checklist2014.pdf

This is the part that's confused me a bit:

"From November 12, 2014: Applicants are required to submit copies of their documents to NVC and bring the original

document to the visa interview. The original Affidavit of Support, Form I-864 is still required by NVC and will be
forwarded to the Immigrant Visa Unit with your file and available to the consular officer at the interview."
As of now I've had no correspondence with the NVC. Does this mean that I have to send an original Affidavit of Support (I-864) to the NVC AND take a I-134 to the interview?? Because at the bottom of the pdf file is says that K-1 visa applicants should fill out the I-134 to show financial support but the NVC need I-864 that will be forwarded to embassy anyway?
This seems to be a new rule put in place within the last 6 days so I'm not sure how much information is out there about it yet.

That is two processes mixed in one document. Immigrant like the CR1 spouse visa and K1 fiancé visa.

The paragraph called "Applications processed by the Embassy in London" applies to you because that's where you are processed. It also applies to spouse visas doing DCF who skip the NVC entirely by filing their petition at USCIS London.

Skip the next two paragraphs because K1s do no processing at the NVC. The Nov. 12 change is for CR1s. They used to mail all their original documents to NVC in the US...birth certificate, police certificate, etc. Now it appears they can send photocopies for their NVC processing (except the I-864) and keep their originals to bring to their interview.

Here's another list of documents on their website that has some "read more" type links that may have more detail on some of the documents. http://london.usembassy.gov/application_documents.html

Thank you so much, that clears a lot of confusion! Cheers for the link too.
