Final Preparations - Interview June 30th

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon everyone.

Sitting aside the "glitch" with the US Embassies and Consulates, I am very nervous/excited about getting this process over and done with. As you can tell you by my topic title, my interview in Montreal for the IR-1/CR-1 Visa is scheduled for Tuesday, June 30th at 10am. I wanted to get some opinions on if the paperwork I/we have is enough. Basically, my wife (USC and Petitioner) has lived with me in Canada for four years, but as of June 1st has moved back to US and is working, so this should give some context of our paperwork.

Folder 1:

Interview Letter

Loomis Letter

Passport Photos

Folder 2:

Original Civil documents (Police certification, marriage certificate, birth certficate - long and short, passport, etc) - we did EP so everything was scanned.


Original I-864 and resubmitted I-864 due to checklist

Updated I-864 with my wife's new job, income, and address

US Tax Returns 2013 and 2014

Canadian Tax Returns 2013 and 2014

Folder 3: Proof re-establishing domicile folder

Letter confirming Employment

Utility bill (Verizon phone contract)

Mail from bank

Colour copy of new drivers license


Possibly bank statement and/or paystub - if we get it in time.

In theory I think I am good, but any insight would be appreciated. Also one question; should I stand in line at 9:30am or get there as early as possible?
