We are currently getting all our ducks in a row prior to booking my Medical appointment and IR1 Embassy interview and I just wanted to double check that I have understood correctly the list of documents that I need to bring to my interview. Let me preface this by saying that I am the beneficiary and my wife is the petitioner, and we are using a joint sponsor.
Print out of courier confirmation page
Print out of DS-260 confirmation page
My original passport
Our original marriage certificate (+1 photocopy)
Two passport photographs of myself
My UK police certificate (+1 photocopy)
My original UK birth certificate (+1 photocopy)
My wife’s I-864, including supporting documents:
Wife's IRS tax transcripts for the past 3 years
Copy of my wife's US passport photo page
Joint sponsor's I-864, including supporting documents:
Joint sponsor's IRS tax transcripts for past 3 years
Copy of joint sponsor's US passport photo page
Joint sponsor's pay stubs for the past 6 months
Letter from joint sponsor's employer on company letter-head confirming nature of employment, salary etc.
Am I missing anything from the list above?
I question I had was: do I need to bring my wife's original birth certificate as well? This page (https://uk.usembassy.gov/visas/family-immigration/required-documents/) states that "you must obtain the original, or certified copy (provided by the issuing authority), of the birth record of each family member (yourself, your spouse, and all unmarried children under the age of 21, even if they are not immigrating with you" however, I was under the impression that this only applies if your spouse is also applying for an immigrant visa.
Another question I had was: I have read that London is pretty relaxed about proving intent to re-establish domicile. At the start of this process, we were under the impression that I would have to provide evidence such as my wife's US voting record, bank statements etc. but it sounds like this evidence is rarely asked for at the London embassy?
Hope everyone waiting for their LND numbers hears back soon!
