We have our interview in a few days and I am gathering everything I need as husband and petitioner for my wife who is Dominican. The previous letter from the NVC states that they sent a copy of my I-864 to the consulate where the interview is to take place. Everything I am reading says to bring the I-864 to the interview. Am I required to supply another copy of the I-864 at the interview? I do have my tax statements and w-2's which they asked for. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm in the same situation. NVC says they forwarded the I-864. I'm bringing another freshly printed and signed copy with me, if not several copies, because why not?

Technically, you do not have to bring a copy unless things have changed, such as you got a better paying job or switched employers etc.

However, in general it is better to bring a copy in case they lost theirs, which seems to happen quite a bit.

I was wondering the same thing... I was told that since they already have it, then I don't really need to bring it but part of me wants to be safe and just bring copies of what I have. You never know, it's better to be safe than sorry! Or maybe I'm overthinking this too much. Anyway, good luck in your upcoming interview!! :no: My husband and I will have ours in around 2 weeks!!!

Hi Let me help you out here... I just went through this and I would tell you to bring an extra copy of tax returns and I864 form.

The reason I am saying this is because you are banking your file was received complete---mine was not.

In DR things are done how do I say this... (Dominican Style) :rofl::rofl::rofl:

For example most embassy the USC doesn't have to be present for the interview, but our sweet DR it is STRONGLY recommended.

There are other examples that are stark differences to other embassys from around the world.

My advice is when in doubt just bring it..

GOOD LUCK!
