Preparing for packet 3

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

To those of you who are farther along in the proces...

What did you do to prepare for Packet 3 ahead of time? I am waiting on my NOA1 now, and I want to have things ready when they ask for it so things move quickly!

I am already working on my Affidavit of Support, and Fede (the alien) is going to start getting the police clearance.

What else should I get going on ??

THanks!!

US Citizen (I started this AFTER I got NOA2)

- Prepared I-134 and notarized for use at Interview

- Got letter from employer for use at Interview

- Got my Birth certificate for use at Interview

- Got my most recent Tax return & W-2, made copies for use at Interview

- Completed DS-156, DS-156K, DS-157, FS-257a and mailed to Fiancee for use at Interview

Beneficiary (Fiancee started this after NOA2)

- Made 6 additional Passport photos for Medical (1), DS-156 (2) and for the Interview (2)

- Started getting Police reports together

As an ongoing effort, we always knew that eventually we would need to have our evidence of Proof of Ongoing relationship for the Interview - Letters, photos, phone bills, additional visits (travel & hotel receipts). Maybe the Consulate will look at it, maybe not. We'd rather just be ready.

YOU CANT CHANGE THE PAST BUT YOU CAN RUIN THE PRESENT BY WORRYING OVER THE FUTURE

TRIP.... OVER LOVE, AND YOU CAN GET UP

FALL.... IN LOVE, AND YOU FALL FOREVER

I DO HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT, JUST NOT THE ABILITY

LIKE THE MEASLES, LOVE IS MOST DANGEROUS WHEN IT COMES LATER IN LIFE

LIFE IS NOT THE WAY ITS SUPPOSED TO BE, ITS THE WAY IT IS

I MAY NOT BE WHERE I WANT TO BE BUT IM SURE NOT WHERE I WAS

Don't forget to translate the birth ceritificate into english. Pick one of the translators that are listed by the US embassy there :)
