Does letters and chats need to be translated

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All, for all who had their interviews or who are knowledgeable with this, do we need to translate all the letters and chats sent by my husband to me? Or is it okay to bring them just to show that we were exchanging letters and as proof of communication with each other? Thanks!

It is my understanding that they do not look through the chat logs or at least very closely at them ...however, I did read a post from a gentleman who was apparently denied a visa based on something in his chat although the embassy did not specifically say that they kept his chat logs. If I was going to use chat logs as evidence, I would pick out a page every two-three months..clearly mark the date and personally translate, then turn those in.

We do most of our chatting via Facebook. So I just took a screen shot of the window that shows how many "Older Messages" we had to load.

If you feel like it will help you case, bring/turn in your chats in their entirety....one of the more experienced posters on this forum, states over and over...chat logs are not good evidence and evidence of actual time with your beneficiary is the most important.
