Yay!!!! We got our visa interview in Abu dhabi. I did receive an email with instructions and appointment letter but we did not receive any hard copies... Are you supposed to??

And also for evidence of support, I don't currently work so I will add my father and mother. My dad has his own businesses. How can he get a salary letter? Does he write his own?

Thank u!

By the way.. Those who have not received an interview appointment yet, you will get it before you know it! I waited forever to get one.

Good luck to everyone!

Hi,

First of all congratulations. You don't need a hard copy. Email is just fine. Ask your dad to talk with his company. They can easily issue the job letter. Make them write how long he has been working there for. He is permanent and how much he makes. Hope this helps.

Good luck with the interview:)

good luck to you. and even if it hits more than 1 month, it is ok. at least your case will not take more than a year like mine.

You will need several items (for the above form). Gather duplicate evidence of income and resources as appropriate:

(A) Statement from an officer of the bank/financial institution with your deposits, identifying the following: 1. date account opened; 2. total amount deposited for the past year; 3. present balance

(B) Statement(s) from your employer on business stationary showing: 1. Date and nature of employment; 2. salary paid; 3. whether position is temporary or permanent (also include copies of your last two pay stubs and your previous W-2 for the associated employer if available)

© If Self Employed: 1. Copy of last income tax return filed (or IRS transcripts); or 2. report of commercial rating concern

(D) List containing serial numbers and denominations of bonds and name of record owner(s).

Take a look at C. Hopefully it helps. I am not sure how it works for self employed. But it seems like you can just need last income tax return file. may be have a letter saying you own a business or something. Sorry
