Preparation for P3

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


My petition finally arrived at the Montreal Consulate. I am working on preparing all the documents I need based off this checklist posted on the Consulate website: http://montreal.usconsulate.gov/visas/visas/fianc-k-1-visas/appointment-checklist.html

Does anyone know if the letter of employment and bank statement for the supporting documentation of the Affidavit of Support needs to be dated at a specific time? We plan on getting that done now even before I receive a P3, but I don't know if the Consulate will be upset that it's dated before I get a P3?

Also, the website also posts this list: http://montreal.usconsulate.gov/visas/visas/fianc-k-1-visas/appointment-checklist.html

I notice that on the list, it mentions:

  • Copy of the U.S. petitioner status in the USA.

I don't see that listed on the P3 checklist. Is that something that comes from the P4 or does this apply to another kind of visa? Also, what does that mean? Birth Certificate or photocopy of passport?

My Visa application wasa little different (I-130 & 1-485, I had a TN visa prior to greencard), but for work status, I just printed out my last paystubs & asked my boss to write a letter. I don't knw how much they look at the date. In my letter, I had him write that my employment was secure.

As for the petitioner's stauts, we photocopied both my husban's passport & birth certificate - we figured better too much info, than not enough

hope this helps a bit

I am not sure about the dates on the employment letter or bank statements, but I did not need to have a copy of the petitioner's status in the USA. They have your entire I-129f on record in which you already showed citizenship.

Another thing on that list that I didn't need was the petitioner's proof of domicile.
