Hey guys, I've been studying all along to send in a package through post mail, but thanks to one of our friends on here I realized I'm eligible for electronic processing (my number starts with RDJ and its a CR-1)... So my question is what are the main differences for someone who will take the e-mail route? hit me up with some good tips/links so I can get started! I feel like a dummie for not noticing that sooner...

For me in Australia, the biggest benefit was the greatly reduced time for documents to be lodged at NVC . Immediate lodging rather than possibly weeks in snail mail.. Wouldnt consider any other way fo filing. Also, any RFE comes via email and you can respond to it immediately.

I did it for Rio it just made it quicker and painless. You recieve an email upon them receiving. No worrying whether USPS lost package. And if RFE you send it fast. Overall fast efficient and safe.

No. Sending it is enrolling. Once you send email you must continue with EP.

Guys, so... Do I have to send in both the barcoded sheet that I received through email along with the one you print out from the website? Is a cover letter needed? Also I read someone mentioning that there are guidelines as to size of files and document titles and how to title the email itself... I havent been able to find a good link describing all the rules... can anyone help? thanks!

You can use cover page either AOS or IV I scanned all pages individually. For example I864 each page got a file then you will name each file

Example:

RDJ000000 Smith John I864 PAGE 1 OF 8.....

RDJ000000 Smith John I864 PAGE 2 OF 8....

all scans like that attach them to one email and send. Just be sure to identify each document in the file name and always use name and case number. Each attachment can't be more than 5mb

I was able to scan in my I-864 in one document with about 2MB.

What if a document has an accompanying translation, should that de two files or one?

I did it recently. Each file you attach cannot be more than 5mb. However, the total size of attachments on your email does not matter. If you have a document, say birth certificate, the birth certificate translation should be another file.

If your birth certificate has more than one page, you still need to put it on the same file, don't do birthcertificate_page1 and birthcertificate_page2.

Keep in mind that if the docs are in portuguese there is NO need to translate.

Good luck!

Hi thanks for the help!!. I just didn't understand this part:

Most of our documents are in portuguese and I've translated them.. how is that not necessary?

There is no need to translate any document that is in Portuguese!! You can trust me on that one, I was surprised too! I actually called NVC to ask about it. But it's written in here: https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/immigrate/immigrant-process/documents/Supporting_documents.html

"All documents not written in English, or in the official language of the country in which you are applying for a visa, must be accompanied by certified translations."

It looks like you haven't gone through the official website ;-p

Oh dear!

shameful but so true! hahaha I read up a lot on the NVC stage before I sent out the I-130 back in January and assumed I knew what to do except for some details here and there (and apparently have forgotten all of it)... but I could never imagine NVC not requiring translations, even reading what you sent me it seems like it can't be true... lol

lol...well, It's a very long and annoying process and there is just so much to worry about. I'm telling you how I did and I didn't get any RFE so I think I did it right.

I sent all the required documents in the same email, and I forgot to send the checklist (but don't make the same mistake). I had for example RDJ....MyName_I864_JointSponsor (it was a 12 page document). You just have to make sure that you scan it in a medium quality so it doesn't get bigger than 5mb. I sent an email with about 20 files total.

At the NVC stage they will not check the details of your documents, they will check whether you have enough income and if you are able to provide all the required supporting documents. One thing that I want to point it out is that if your joint sponsor is married and file taxes together with his/her spouse, the spouse must fill I864a.

Good luck!
