Original documents or photocopies?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Along with form i-129F it says a birth certificate?  Should I provide the official copy from the vital records office or a photo copy?  And what about proof that we've met such as flight itineraries and travel documents?  Most of mine are all digital because many airlines dont require you to have physical tickets.  Can I just print them out?  And evidence of our intent to marry in a isgned statement.  Can he just email me his copy so he doesn't have to mail it internationally with an original signature?  Thanks!

Read the instructions.   The instructions clearly say that all evidence should be legible photocopies unless an original or certified copy is specifically requested 


YMMV

I just found the pdf of instructions, sorry!  I was reading the UCIS checklist which is not as descriptive.  This is much more useful.  Thanks!

although technically, i can't provide photocopies, only printed copies, since i have nothing physical to photocopy.

The key factor is LEGIBLE and you don't need to provide an original or certified copy.

Photocopy unless certifies original is specifically requested. Any document not in English should be accompanied with its translation. Good luck.
