what to take to the interview - Cuba [edited title]

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

I just received the letter with the interview date and time for my wife in Cuba. However, I am unsure as to what exactly she needs to take to the interview. The NVC is sending all the supporting documents to the consulate which has the photographs and police certificate. Does she need to take a new set of photographs and another police certificate? I know that for sure she needs to take a sealed copy of the medical exam, the passport, birth certificate, and marriage certificate. On the appointment letter it has a set of documents with the matching status and it says that the ones with the letter "J" is the ones that they received copies but she needs to show them the original (passport, birth cert and marriage certifacte), do I just go by that letter?

Thank you so much for your help in adavance!

She will need, birth certificate, any divorce decrees, antecedentes penales recientes, dos fotos de pasaporte recientes, su carnet de identidad, su pasaporte, cualquier evidencia adicional que tengan, ella necesitara almenos 3 a 4 semanas antes de la entrevista para hacerce el examen medico y que este listo no pierdan el tiempo con eso porque las citas se agotan rapido. Muy importante el affidavit of support con los documentos del IRS W2 y comprobantes de cheques de pagos tuyos o del sponsor.

El y yo I need your help. En Mayo 8 mi caso fue enviado a NVC. Llame el dia 16 y logre obtener mi numero de caso y numero de invoice. No obstante, me dijeron que esperara una carta de NVC con instrucciones a seguir. En Mayo 22 volvi a llamar a NVC porque la carta aun no llega y me siento varada y desorientada. Pues cual fue mi sorpresa cuando me dijeron que en Mayo 19 mi caso habia sido enviado a la Habana. Imagina mi desesperacion que no he pagado el fee de la visa porque el sistema ha estado down en los ultimos dias. No he llenado el affidavit of support. Nada. Por favor, que hago? Orientame que parece que ya pasaste por esto. Muchas gracias.

For some of us we didn't submit our 2014 tax return to NVC and our AOS was based on tax returns from 2013, 2012 & 2011, but by the time of the interview the tax time for 2014 has passed so the embassy's asked the updated AOS which includes your tax info for 2014. If your AOS includes the tax info for 2014 you do not have to take update AOS. Good luck
