I have been to the embassy in London twice for J1 visa appointments and I have never had to prove this, but of course it may differ for K1 visa appointments. I doubt it though.

Good luck!

So long as it looks like it was taken within the last 6 months, I would assUme that should be enough.

I don't know how one would go about proving this...one could produce a receipt, but then there's really nothing to tie a specific receipt to a specific photo, neither is there a requirement that the photo be purchased....so a legitimate photo may or may not even have a receipt.

The point (I think) is that the photo be an accurate representation of the person as he currently is.

I wouldn't worry about bringing proof....just bring the photo that meets the requirements. :-)

Thankyou both

I will just take the photo along, think it looks pretty much like me :)

Also - does anyone know what London prefers as evidence for the I-134 form? I have a letter from my fiancé's employer, W2 transcripts for 2013/2012/2011, pay checks for 3 months, a letter from his bank showing how much in his accounts and copies of bank statements for 3 months. I will probably take all of it but just wondered if there was anything that they particularly preferred to see.

They seem to pick the employer letter if given a choice like you have prepared. London does not have any one thing that is absolutely required, even a tax return. You have five times what you need for London, so no worries.

Just a little info--there is no W2 transcript. There is a tax return transcript. A W2 is an end of year wage statement employers send out for use in preparing the tax return. If you have a tax return transcript (from the IRS) you don't need a W2 to go with it.

And the photo-- when I want to my husband's K1 interview, the document collecting person looked at his photo and said,"how long ago was this taken?" He said, "Oh...about two months." It was actually months older than that. They don't know.

Thanks very much for this - and yes I just checked and I have an IRS transcript, I saw the word W2 on there somewhere and it confused me :P

Do London ever ask for any proof of ongoing relationship at all?

Typically they do not ask for this.

Have a read on the United Kingdom regional forum as there is lots of embassy specific advice on there, such as the answer to this question :yes:

Good luck!
