Boarding passes: copies. Same with any other similar evidence like passport stamps, photos, etc. 

Original letters- do you mean letter of intent? It can be either a copy or original.

For letters I meant the ones exchanged  , so I understand that everything attached with packet is just a copies because I've letters hand written , boarding passes and I thought they should be just originals

All you need is copy of receipt when you paid for it, maybe the airline, flight#, copy of boarding pass, the page on your passport that shows the visa stamp.  When you say, letters exchanged, do you mean letters that you have written to each other?  When your fiancé gets an interview, after getting your NOA2 approval, that is when you will want to get as much proof of bona fide relationship as possible.  Right now you need to send in the basics that USCIS is requesting on form I-129F.

As you might still need those with you for interview, i suggest to scan everything ( letter / pic / boarding pass) for application. and keep the hard copy in binders for the interview. at least that is what i did.

Nothing filed with the original petition is necessary for the interview because it already is a part of the case file at the embassy. Even more, after the approval the CO returned me the original photos my fiance had filed. We kept original tickets, letters, boarding passes and other hard copy evidence until approval. If we weren't approved, we still could have used it for a spousal visa filing if so was the case. Which in case of Algeria is not unlikely.

Always submit only copies of everything, keep originals for the interview.  Only original with wet signature required is the petition form itself.  Everything else copies.

I think you meant to say that the beneficiary should bring originals with one copy to leave with the CO. The CO when asked likes to review the original and will normally return the original and keep the copy for their records. Also, the petitioner has submitted his documents as copies during the filing of the I-129f. :thumbs:

They might consider it urgent because they are trying to file ASAP and were hoping to have their question answered quickly. It'll be okay Max, just take a deep breath and make sure you have all the basics first. I know when I sent them my petition I'm sure I included way more 'proof of meeting/relationship' than was necessary because I was concerned about getting an RFE.

A careful read of the instructions would tell you that all evidence submitted can be legible photocopies 


YMMV
