Immigrant visa interview for my son is very soon

Recommended Posts


My interview for the immigrant visa for my son (7 years old, I am a U.S. citizen living in Germany right now) is now scheduled for mid May in Frankfurt. With regards to the documents needed for it, I could only find the basics online like photographs, fee, birth certificate... .

Will they also ask to see further proof of my ties to the U.S.? Should I bring my 2013 taxes (or will they need 2014 if they ask for taxes?), my bank account info, real estate license, and current lease documents for my house there? In general will they ask for proof that we are moving back there?

We are planning on going to the States on August 1st (and my son will be an automatic citizen once we enter, yeah!!!!), is there enough time to receive the visa before the trip after the interview? How long does it normally take to receive it?

Thank You for Your replies.

Yes they will ask for your proof of domicile to the US if you have been abroad for a long time.

You need to show them your 2014 tax return.

Don't worry about the visa, you have more than enough time to receive it (given there are no issues during the interview).

Good luck!
