Question about bringing documents to the U.S. Embassy for the interview

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I mailed all the documents that was requested to the U.S. Embassy. They asked for the original CENOMAR but that was the only one we had. We mailed the CENOMAR, but now we don't have another one to bring to the interview. Will that be an issue? Since we sent it to them, they should already have it and shouldn't ask for it at the interview right? Thank you!

I would take a copy and explain that you have already sent the original.

Since the consulate does not request documents in advance,  whom did you submit the document too?


YMMV

Why did you mail any documents to the embassy?   That is NOT requested for the K-1 visa.  All documents are to be hand carried to the interview.   

 

Copies are accepted ONLY where originals are not required.

 

You will also want originals of the NBI and birth certificate.

 

 

 

I just noticed in your timeline that you are in Japan, mod moved you to the Philippines forum ...   hmm, not really sure why ??

 

 

CENOMAR may be a Philippine document, but your question relates to the process at the embassy in Japan, not in the Philippines

Going forward, you now know to always make copies of immigration-related documents.

@payxibkaThe U.S. embassy in Tokyo requested original documents to be sent to them. This was in the instruction letter or packet 3. It was strongly recommended because the documents could be subject to confirmation, which could take months to finish. It says in bold letters, that the documents I mail them will be retained in my file and that I shouldn't need a copy for the interview. So I'm just wondering if anyone has experience with mailing documents to the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo.
