immigrant data summary sheet stapled...can I remove it?

16 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife has her seminar this June 10, and I read in the cfo website that she needs to bring the original and a photocopy of the immigrant summary sheet. Our problem is, the immigrant summary sheet is stapled to the yellow envelope. Can my wife remove the data sheet from the envelope? If not, what is the best way to approach this situation? Does she just have the sheet photocopied while still attached to the envelope, and then bring the whole Visa packet with her to the seminar so that they can see the original copy as well? I read somewhere here that its bad to take the data sheet from the staple. I do not know what is right. For the people who have gone through the seminar this year, please tell me how you approached the situation.

Make a copy through the plastic. Bring the folder with you to CFO to have ready if needed. DON"T DON"T DON"t let anyone open the visa packet, not the plastic and not the envelope!!!!

This is strange because normally they don't ask for the data sheet. I'm suspicious. Stand your ground about the envelope not being opened. Be sure to have the following available.

REQUIREMENTS

•2 valid ID's (must be a picture ID, like a driver’s license, passport, PRC or PhilPost ID. Check the website for accepted ID's collected by CFO)

•Photocopy of the 2 valid IDs (IMPORTANT NOTE: it is not indicated on the website to photocopy your ID's but, it is posted on the CFO entrance door, so photocopy your IDs to lessen the hassle)

•Passport and Photocopy of the bio page (the page that contains your picture)

•Photocopy of Visa page (visa page on your passport)

•Registration form (downloaded and printed from their website)

•Other documents: Prepare to be asked for your fiancée (petitioner’s) naturalization certificate or birth certificate and passport photocopy. Also, some are asked to present pictures of the two of you together so it's suggested bringing evidences you presented at USEM interview.

•FOR THOSE WITHOUT PASSPORT: if your passport is still with USEM, your appointment letter (with your interview schedule) will be enough in replacement of the passport and visa requirement

The DATA SUMMARY sheet is a requirement with all immigrant visas at CFO, always has been.

Do not remove the DATA SUMMARY sheet from the envelope, simply make a copy then bring everything to CFO, and like said do not let them remove the DO NOT OPEN envelope from the plastic bag (that envelope must not be torn)

is the Immigrant Data summary always stapled to the yellow envelop? my mom said when she got her visa, the immigrant data summary is inside the plastic packet but not stapled on the yellow envelop.

As long as it's inside the plastic envelope then there is no concern.
