I want to start by saying thank you to everyone who has helped me here before. My wife and I couldn't have made it this far without everyone's friendly advice!

So today I received what I assume to be an RFR and I was wondering if I could please get some advice interpreting it.

Here's what it says


______F - FINANCIAL EVIDENCE:____________________________ We reviewed your I-864, I-864EZ, I-864W or I-864A Affidavit of Support form and supporting financial documents. We found that you didn't provide all the necessary supporting documents or you had incomplete information or you missed some questions on the Affidavit of Support form(s). On the attached Affidavit of Support checklist, we have put an "X" by each item you need to correct. You must send additional financial supporting documents or complete and submit a new form with the corrections noted on the attached checklist, or both. You will need to go to the Department of State's website at http://nvc.state.gov/aosand follow the instructions for the Affidavit of Support form(s). From there, you can fill out a new form online, then print and send it to the NVC. Please read all instructions and send the necessary forms and supporting documents to the NVC. We require an Affidavit of Support form for each case regardless of your income level. Your case is on hold until you send us the items we need. When you return the documents to the NVC, please make sure that the documents are in the correct order and stapled together, as stated in the I-864 Important Notice instructions.

Form I-864: Assessment Letter for JOINT SPONSER

The National Visa Center (NVC) recently reviewed your I-864 Affidavit of Support form. The Affidavit of Support form had one or more sections with missing or incorrect information or was missing required supporting documents, or both. Please review the instructions below to complete a new Affidavit of Support form or to obtain the missing supporting documents. Send the corrected Affidavit of Support form or original documents that are missing to the principal applicant so he or she can take them to the immigrant visa interview. You should also send photocopies of the Affidavit of Support form to the principal applicant for each traveling family member to take to the visa interview. Failure to take the original documents and copies for each traveling family member to the visa interview can cause processing delays. The Consular Officer will review the corrected form and documents at the time of the interview.

You do not need to contact the NVC at this time. Also, do not send an updated I-864 Affidavit of Support form or documents to the NVC. After we schedule the immigrant visa interview, we will send you an appointment letter. If you need a new I-864 Affidavit of Support form, you can find it at uscis.gov/forms. \pard[x] [x] [x] [x] [x] [x]

You must submit the following supporting financial evidence: [x] Proof of U.S. citizenship, nationality, or Lawful Permanent Resident status (examples: a copy of your birth certificate, certificate of naturalization, certificate of citizenship, consular report of birth abroad to citizen parents, or a copy of the biographic data page of your U.S. passport)."

It appears that they misplaced the proof of our joint Sponsor's citizenship, but I'm confused as to whether I should mail it to them or wait and bring it to the interview.

There's a cover sheet attached, so I'm assuming they want us to mail it to be NVC, but then again, as noted above:

"You do not need to contact the NVC at this time. Also, do not send an updated I-864 Affidavit of Support form or documents to the NVC. After we schedule the immigrant visa interview, we will send you an appointment letter.."

Please let me know how you would interpret this and if it may just be better to mail the documents again to the NVC. We are in Japan by the way. Thank you so much for any responses.

Looks like you have case complete at NVC. Congrats. :) Your joint sponsor needs to take a copy of their birth certificate or other proof of their US status and send that to the beneficiary. Then the beneficiary brings this proof to the interview. That's all you need to do.
