Hello Everyone, 

 

This website is really great and I have been getting a lot of answers to a lot of my questions. But, at this moment I am more than confused. 
On March 25th, I saw online that our case was approved by the USCIS so we are currently waiting for our NOA2. 

 

In the meantime, I (the Beneficiary) is trying to get ready for whatever comes next. 
I have been reading about the Visa Interview and what I need to bring in so many different places by now and I am just more confused. 

Can anyone help with a total overview on what I need to bring and whether I have to bring original documents or if it can be copies?
Me and my fiancé will need a CO-sponsor so I also need information about that part, if anyone can help. 

 

Thank you so much in advance and please take care in this scary time!

 

/Simone

If you find anything not up to date or the information is wrong, please share your findings. Please compare the date of the P3 of mine with the date from your copy, once you receive yours from your embassy. Keep in mind that I try and be factual with my information, but I can't do it on my own and that's where you come in and can give back to the community those who come behind you. Without others ahead of you I would not be able to provide this to you.  I can only share factual information if folks like you continue to be my eyes and ears for your embassy. I wish you much success in your visa journey. 
 

Join us in the APRIL 2020 K-1 NOA2 to NVC to EMBASSY thread and download the PDF file on the first post of the first page for tips, tricks and hacks to follow your case to the embassy. I'll post both links below:

Thread for all Scandinavians here. 

 

In short, your approved i-129f will be shipped off to NVC next. The NVC step usually takes a while, often 30 days or more, so you still have a month or more before NVC ships it off to the US embassy in Stockholm. You  can start calling NVC after ~3-4 weeks to get your case number, you'll need it for the next steps. Once the embassy receives your case they will send an email (you or your US spouse will receive it, so have him check his email too, even the spam folders). The email will contain all information you need, people (including me) have posted the checklist in the Scandinavian thread.

 

Also note that because of covid-19, the embassy is closed and all interviews cancelled until further notice. Nobody knows when they will be opening again.

I am pretty new in here. Can you tell me if there is an easy way to find the overview in the checklist in the thread?
Or do I just need to start from one end? 🙂
