I reside in Saudi Arabia. My wife, who is a permanent resident is my main sponsor, as she is un-employed for the last 5-6 years, therefore my uncle became my joint sponsor. We have submitted all the related documents to NVC (i.e Form I-864 from my wife - stating she is un-employed & Form I-864 from my uncle as he is joint sponsor) .


Last week we sent our IV & AOS package to NVC also. Today i received an email from NVC as some information is missing, mentioned by NVC as below:


"Regarding Evidence of Income for Financial Sponsor or Household Member: My wife's name


If there are supporting documents missing:  Send the missing documents to the principal applicant so he or she can take them to the visa interview. Do not send the documents to NVC.


Please gather the below requested financial evidence:

Your _________________2017__________________ IRS transcript or U.S. income tax return

If you were not required to file a Federal U.S. income tax return for _____________2017______________________, attach a typed or printed explanation of the reason. If you are eligible for an exemption for any reason other than your income level, you must also include evidence of the exemption and how you are eligible for it."


My question is that what document we need to prepare to show to the counselor at the interview? Should we prepare a type explanation of the fact that since she was un-employed thats why we couldnt submit her returns?  Currently they are asking Not to send the missing document to NVC, while they schedule our interview.
