Sydney K1 Interview I-134 copy or original?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Question for anyone who has recently had their K1 interview in Sydney!

 

Just reading over my Packet 4 checklist on what to bring and I noticed most items on the checklist state in brackets after - copy or original

 

Letter of intent - copies are accepted

Medical - original

Passport photos - original

MRV receipt - copy 

 

Etc..

 

But the I-134 form and supporting documents it says COPY ONLY

 

Which I guess just surprises me as its an official form....

So just curious if originals are needed OR

Does anyone know if a copy will suffice?

Hi good morning from what i was told the i-134 is not an official document until your AOS for the K1, so some embassies will ask for it and some won't, it's not  binding until you are married after the 90 days and have to take in all originals to your interview for your green card, cr-1 visa is different there already married, but a wet signiture is  needed or some embassies will accept a scanned signature copy.

Oh I have a question now -

 

I was born in England and my original birth certificate has been lost. I ordered an official copy from the government which they have sent to me in Australia. It says "Certified Copy of an Entry" on it. 

 

I literally do not have the original otherwise I would bring it. It's probably been lost when my family moved over to Australia (I was 3 months old). 

 

Will this be an issue in the interview? 

 

Thanks

Alice

No issue. Use the CCOE as though it was the "original". Embassy will understand that it is an official statement to the fact that the original is no longer available.
