US Embassy Ghana list of required documents for CR-1 Interview

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So my wife's interview for CR-1 Visa is coming up in July. According to the official letter we received from NVC with the interview date, these are the only documents that they are requesting. Can someone with experience of CR-1 interview in Ghana please advise me what else we should have on hand that they may ask for?

- passport photo's x 2

- original passport

- original birth certificate

- original marriage license

- original police certificate (they state if it's older than one year to get a new one, but the one's in Ghana state on the form that they are valid for 6 months, so we will get a new one just to be safe)

That's all they ask for. In addition to what we send with the I-130 and then what I side loaded at NVC for evidence, we are also including;

- Photos from all visits

- My passport stamps for all visits

- proof of holiday together in S. Africa

- Chat logs

- Screenshots of call logs

- proof of joint bank account with activity

- MoneyGram receipts

- copies of evidence already submitted including affidavits from both sides family members

- Proof of life insurance with wife listed as partial beneficiary along with my daughter.

Should I include tax transcripts even though they are already confirmed at NVC? Do I have to re-submit evidence of prior marriage termination again? Is there anything else I am missing that anyone has been asked for at the US Embassy in Ghana? I appreciate the help, thanks.

I would suggest you include your tax transcript,if you have all the evidence you presented for your K-1 interview take them with you and if you have any other evidence about his prior marriage, it wouldn't hurt to take it with you.

The most I have heard about previous marriage were just questions and no document was requested as proof.

good luck to you guys!
