  1. Hello, I am the petitioner and I’ve filed for a K1 Visa for my fiancé living in Germany. My I-I129F petition is at U.S. Consulate General Frankfurt and I’m looking for some help or guidance regarding next steps after receiving packet 3. Is the information on “Frankfurt, Germany US Embassy / Consulate Info” still accurate because it was last dated 2016. If that information on that page is still accurate, I'll follow those steps moving forward. Questions: 1.) Do I bring the original AOS and Supporting Documents to the interview or do I include in the packet I send to the consulate? 2.) Does the letter from my Bank have to be the original copy? I printed off the copy I received via email but it's not the best copy. Everything on the letter is clear and you're able to read perfectly. 3.) Do I include confirmation page from DS-160 in the packet or bring it to the interview? 4.) Two part question Part 1 Is the interview date received from Packet 4 or prescheduled by my fiancé once she registers/creates a profile from http://www.ustraveldocs.com? It was a little confusing when we were reading all the steps under the nonimmigrant visa application section of the website. Part 2 Also, another confusing part was when we were reading the description from the Immigrant / Fiancé(e) & K Visa Application Checklist on section “DOCUMENT DELIVERY ADDRESS: Prior to your interview”. The part were confused on reads as follows: Please remember to include a copy of your registration confirmation page with the other document that you send to the Consulate before your interview. Note: Fiancé and K visa applicants need to submit their appointment confirmation at the time of the visa interview instead of the registration confirmation. Does that mean she still has to include the “registration page” in the packet after creating a profile from www.ustraveldocs.com/de? Is the appointment confirmation page received from the Consulate or after creating/scheduling an appointment from http://www.ustraveldocs.com? 5.) Should my fiancé schedule/complete the medical examination before or after sending all required documents to the consulate? 6.) I know it says send all document regular mail through the Deutsche Post, but has anyone else sent the documents in a faster/secure delivery method without any issues? 7.) Does anyone have a list of documents to bring to the interview? Any advice or tips in this step process would be greatly appreciated it. Thank you in advance for helping me clear up these questions. Thank you, Matt
  2. We filed our 129f for a K-1 Visa last June and were approved by the USCIS in September. The NVC assigned our petition a case number on 10-22, and on 10-24 my attorney sent in the DS-160 info and received a confirmation and barcode number. On 11/12, the NVC sent me (the petitioner) an email letter saying that they were forwarding it on to the Consulate in Montreal. My fiance (the beneficiary) did not receive any notification of this despite the wordage in the emailed letter actually being addressed to her. (Kind of odd.) The Montreal Consulate received it on 11/14, and on 11/15 our CEAC status changed from "In-transit" to "Ready". It also said.. "Your case is ready for you to schedule an interview at the U.S. Consulate General in Montreal. If you have already scheduled an interview appointment, please prepare your documents as directed in your appointment letter and appear at the Consulate on the appointed date and time. Otherwise, please wait until you have been notified of your interview appointment. Additional information about how Immigrant Visa interview appointments are scheduled can be found at: http://nvc.state.gov/interview" I excitedly let my immigration attorney in the U.S. know this and suggested that we send in our packet 3 ASAP so as to trigger P4. She said that the above message was simply a generic one sent to everyone, and that we must wait for an official Packet 3 notification in the mail (or email) before sending in our Packet 3 info. She cited the many DOS website pages related to K-1 Visa's that specifically give that instruction. The Montreal Consulate's own website does not specifically say one way or another. In fact, they don't seem to address the issue it at all for K-1 Visa applicants, saying only that the majority of interview appointments will be scheduled by the NVC. They never specifically mention what K-1 applicants are supposed to do. So 11 days have now gone by since we got the "Ready" status and the quoted message above stating "Your case is ready for you to schedule an interview.." . No P3 request has arrived either by email or mailed letter. Our attorney continues to say we must wait for that before sending our P3 response. Our "Ready" status is still dated Nov 15th. There has never been any change to that. Some mention a "2nd Ready".. that hasn't happened so far. We seem to be dead in the water. Nothing is happening. So.. any comments or suggestions? Should I overrule my immigration attorney and ask her to send in my P3 response now? She adamantly maintains that it would be the wrong course of action, though she admits in the same breath that the DOS websites that she relies on for instruction are frequently not kept updated to how things are actually done and are happening now. Thanks for any response.
  3. Hello Guys! I'm new here. Please help us. We are waiting on our case# and preparing our documents in the meantime. My fiance is currently divorced and have a copy of his divorce decree. Will he still need the Certificate of No impediment for his K-1 visa interview? He went to the Jamaica RGD and they told him the certificate will say marriage is found. Should the Certificate say divorced? Please help
  4. I am so frustrated. Who else is waiting for packet 3 from the embassy for over a month now? Not only that but there are currently no appointment dates available in Ghana. Somebody help?!
  5. Do I need to send the requested documents listed in the instruction letter (packet 3) to the U.S. Embassy or can I just bring them all to the interview? Some people seem to have just brought it to the interview and didn't send anything to the embassy. From my understanding, it's just to speed up the process a bit, and is not an actual requirement. This is in Tokyo btw. Thank you.
  6. Hi Everyone, I have a general inquiry: Is the Packet 3 Email reliable/required to proceed with the Medical Exam and Interview for the Naples, Italy Consulate interview for K-1 Visas? We received the email from the NVC stating that our case number and file was headed to Naples. Our CEAC Case Status changed to "Ready" on the website on July 2nd. I heard that the Packet 3 email normally follows the status update on the same day. I've also heard that Naples doesn't always send it, but when they do, sometimes it's weeks later. I already have Packet 3/Medical instructions from another forum. We've completed the DS-160, paid the fee, and scheduled the interview for 3 weeks from today. I just want to know if I should reach out to the embassy to get the email. Do we actually need a print-out of the consulate's email to carry to the medical and/or consulate inteview? Thanks!
  7. Hi all, I have received the email with instruction for packet 3 but am a little confused as it is not clear which documents to submit. The packet 3 instructions I received are dated March 2018 and found here https://th.usembassy.gov/wp-content/uploads/sites/90/iv-packet-3-instruction-mar2018-english.pdf. So I am confused about which forms you actually submit to the embassy as "packet 3" and which ones you bring to the interview. I feel like the instructions contradict themselves. First it says "Prepare the necessary forms and documents that pertain to you on the following checklist. Make sure to bring the original/certified copy of all the documents with you to submit at your visa interview." Which makes me think I do not submit any forms. Then it says "SUBMIT PHOTOCOPIES ONLY OF THE FOLLOWING DOCUMENTS Photocopies should be black-and-white photocopies. The original/certified copies must be presented at the interview" and lists associated documents Then "SUBMIT ORIGINALS OF THE FOLLOWING DOCUMENTS You are encouraged to retain photocopies of these documents." and lists associated documents. And lastly ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS BELOW MUST BE PRESENTED AT THE INTERVIEW These do not need to be mailed to the IV unit at this stage, however we strongly recommend gathering this information in anticipation of your interview. Which makes me think I submit all the forms listed except these. So what do I submit as packet 3 to the embassy? Do I submit all the documents listed under the SUBMIT PHOTOCOPIES ONLY OF THE FOLLOWING DOCUMENTS checklist and SUBMIT ORIGINALS OF THE FOLLOWING DOCUMENTS You are encouraged to retain photocopies of these documents. OR do I just submit the DS160 form and bring all these documents to the interview? Thank you, Ryan
  8. Hey guys, I have a question that may sound a little silly. Our case has been approved, we were issued our case number, and the embassy in South Africa received our case. The case was received by the U.S. Embassy in Johannesburg on the 9th of April. My question is, do I have to wait for them to contact me first by sending the Packet 3 before registering my appointment for the interview on the website. If so, how long does it take to typically receive Packet 3? Thank you so much!
  9. i got this email from consulate on march 27 saying that my fiancé can't start with the medical and interview until he receive the p3. as i was reading everything under our country philippines, i have seen that the email from nvc is sufficient which is we already received. is this thing new? because i know philpost sucks and i don't know how long will it take for him to receive it if he'll receive one. our case is ready at ceac website.

It is greatly appreciated. Kindest Regards
  11. Would anyone know by chance if a wet signature is needed for the I-134 in Packet 3 or a photocopy is acceptable by the consulate?
  12. Hi everybody! I'm preparing to send my packet 3. Do I need to include the original I-129 F that came in packet 3 when I send it back? Or is it for my records? Thank you
  13. I checked online and the Bangkok Embassy has received my packet (they have 2 case files which is weird). Either way I want to know: Can we get order the police certificate and medical exam now or do we have to wait for the actual packet 3 letter? I want to do the medical ASAP because it takes 2 weeks to get all the results when you do it in Chiang Mai. Also for the vaccinations, is my fiance required to get all of them or as many as she can? Is there a test to see which ones she has? Other than recently her 'medical records' are spotty. Thanks!! P.S. Looking for Thailand specific answers please.
  14. Is anyone else feel like Montreal Embassy is taking forever to send out packet 3?!?! No updates or communication, just a simple email to "wait for instructions"... Im almost 2 months past my approval date and time needed for my expedite is running very tight!!!
