When to mail fiance I-134

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, just as the title states, I'm looking for information on when to mail my fiance the I-134 with all supporting documentation (as per the official K-1 guide).

 

The guide doesn't specifically state an exact time frame to mail this packet, only to send it after the NOA2 is received.

 

I (the sponsor) received the NOA2 a couple of days ago and I already have about 75% of all the supporting documentation for the I-134 packet.

 

But should I wait until we hear from NVC that they have processed the petition? Or do I send it immediately (It's going to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)? The NOA2 letter doesn't make any specific mention of when to send this either but I've read that they send another notice of what to send next after they have processed the petition.

 

I'm just concerned about having the absolute most current pay stubs, bank statements, dated forms, etc. Would it matter if I send all of that next week and we end up waiting a month or two before the interview? It takes significant time for mail to arrive in Brazil so that's why I'm so anxious to get this sent off ASAP.

 

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

You should become familiar with your country's sub-forum here on VJ to get a better understanding of the process for the Embassy that you will be interviewing with. This will allow you to get direct answers from those who have completed the steps you are about to take at the US Embassy - Brazil.  Sub-forum for Brazil is located here: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/forum/96-mexico-latin-south-america/

 

This is the Packet 3 (P3) letter from your Embassy.

https://br.usembassy.gov/visas/fiancee/the-interview-2/

 

There is a lot of information on the Embassy for Brazil here https://br.usembassy.gov/visas/frequently-asked-questions-non-immigrant-visas/

 

A thread were a lot of chatter about the process for the Brazil Embassy and interview

You need to be careful with recommending that the OP doesn't need a wet signature unless you are absolutely sure and can site where your information is coming from. Not all embassy's are the same and nor do they all ask for the same documents or procedures. For instance Germany and Indonesia require a wet signature for the I-134.

 

I always advise those embassies that I don't know the answer to, I recommend the couple contact their embassy for the proper etiquette for this document. :thumbs:

Thanks for the replies.

 

I read through all the links that Greenbaum provided but none of those pages provided an answer to my original question "When is the time to mail my fiance the I-134 with all supporting evidence?"

 

Still trying to find information if I should send it right away (after receiving NOA2) or if I should wait until NVC has processed the petition and sent it to the consulate.

 

I've searched and searched but still have not found an answer to this question.

I dont think it matters really but I fedex’d mine after she received Packet III and a case number from the embassy

Note: her consulate DID want original I-134

If you want to send the I-134 (including "wet" signature page) ahead of time via post or express you can.  If you choose to update the supporting evidence (returns, pay stubs, etc..) at a later time you can do it via email with a scan of the updated information


YMMV
