A Simple Document Becomes Difficult

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm having the most difficult time acquiring the Proof of Employment letter. The HR chick at my store has been giving me the run around and it has basically wasted weeks when I could have had the document by now. Basically, they are telling me that I must use this "theworknumber.com" service and direct the US Consulate to the website and provide the employer code for them to look up my employment information AND they do not provide documentation for me! Somehow I think that they won't like that. I've explained my situation over and over. I can't call my district's HR department because they say the HR in my store must submit a request, but she won't submit a request because she says at her level she cannot do that. My fiancee and I are ready to pull our hair out! I'm not sure what else to do in this situation. Can anyone shed some positive light on this, please! :(

Letter of employment is optional. Don;t stress it. And they can use the "theworknumber.com" many do that's an option. But if you have pay stubs or W2 that will suffice nicely

My employer uses the worknumber.com too for official employment verification. I had to use it for my mortgage last year. I've always heard people here saying to just have your boss sign a letter on company letterhead stating that you're employed full time (or part time) and you make X dollars per year. I plan on asking my supervisor to do that when the time comes and not even dealing with HR if I don't have to.

Check out your regional forum and see what others from Vietnam use as support. The London embassy prefers the employer letter but other embassies prefer tax transcripts. Besides, it's just one form of evidence. Pay stubs, tax transcripts and W2s are other forms of evidence that people use all the time.

I would prefer not to use the letter as I can print out plenty of pay stubs and have 5 years worth of income tax information on a flash drive. Although, my fiancee reads the forums religiously and will probably say that she saw a case get a blue slip because of no Proof of Employment letter. I just can't see the US Consulate in Vietnam accepting the worknumber.com as evidence. And no employee at my company is allowed to make up a letter and have a boss sign it, unfortunately. That was my original plan. :unsure:

I think you are going to be fine with the IRS Tax Transcripts (2013, 2012, and even 2011), copy of your last 3 paystubs (or even 6), and a statement from your bank officer.

Don't sweat it.

Thanks everyone! I scanned the worknumber.com letter I have and adding the original with the rest of my paperwork. I noticed in the K1 instructions it doesn't mention anything of another timeline I must write. Originally you write a timeline with the I-129F paperwork, but my fiancee says I must do another. As you can tell from my signature, our paperwork was processed really fast so we have little evidence to provide up until now. I have all the chat logs from Whatsapp, since we use that the most. We use Google Hangout for video calls but you can't save the call duration, only typed conversations. Is another timeline necessary to submit with the I-134 paperwork? Is there anything that the instructions don't say especially for Vietnam?

U only need to do what is required in your packet 3 instructions. Have you gotten it yet? if not then email the VN Embassy and they will send you an email version of packet 3 letter. Here is the link http://hochiminh.usconsulate.gov/contact/ivinquiries.html the instructions for packet 3 are found here at this link http://photos.state.gov/libraries/hochiminh/231771/PDFs/K-INSTRUCTION.pdf I did not submit another timeline only what was submitted in my I129F. Hope that helps.

Actually she did. I think she is just getting really nervous and reads about so many people who fail the interview process over little things. I told her that why send another timeline if it is not necessary. This is our case and it is different from other people's. :)
