    Hi Suzanne4 and everybody,
    I just got my visa screen after i paid last August 2005 and my agency is mailing my contract to me, Thanks GOD they wanted me to submit all the ORIGINAL certificate like CGFNS, IELTS and VISA Screen certificate to them is it really necessary for them to file it for me to the appropriate goverment agencies for my visa? They told me their mailing some important papers to fill up. So can anybody tell me whats the next step after i submit my documents to my agency because as far as i know i will be needing these for the interview at US embassy after i complete all documents and procedures isn't.? Please i need good advice. Thanks and GOD BLESS

    HI. PLEASE DO NOT SEND ORIGINALS . YOU WILL NEED THEM FOR THE EMBASSY INTERVIEW,AND IF THEY LOST THEM YOU WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO GET COPIES. BESIDES, THEY DON'T NEED THE ORIGINALS, JUST PHOTOCOPIES. EVEN AT THE EMBASSY THEY WIL ONLY SEE THE ORIGINALS AND ONLY KEEP PHOTOCOPIES. DON'T SEND THEM PLEASE!!

    Hello.
    Does anybody know why VERMONT SERVICE CENTER is processing approvals of I-140 slower? And will I run out of visas by the time I get approved? My priority date is May 23,2005. It would help me a lot if anybody could answer me anything.. coz i am losing hope on my case.
    Thank you.

    QUESTION FOR ALL APPLICANTS IN THE PHILIPPINES:

    This is about NSO Birth Certificates and Marriage Certificates...

    DUE TO THE HIGH FRAUD BEING COMMITTED IN THE PHILIPPINES we all know that every six months the NSO Paper is changing its color and design...THOUGH WE ALL KNOW THAT THE INFORMATION THAT WOULD BE CONTAINED IN YOUR BIRTH OR MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE WILL STILL BE THE SAME THREE YEARS OR NOW...

    My question is that would it be OK to submit NSO Authenticated Birth Certificates/ Marriage Certificates which are three years old? I mean if the NVC can still check and identify the security print on that paper i think there is no problem besides NVC/ US Embassy did not specify that BC/MC have expirations dates (ONLY NBI clearances are valid for one year)


    please share your experiences...


    thanks,

    I think to be sure just get the latest NSO certificates. Its inexpensive anyway. The US embassy was and can be duped by fake documents. This is the reason that it has to be changed every 6 mos. so that it will make it hard to fake the documents. I don't know if the embassy has particular instructions that NSO cert. should be the latest or not. But why risk it for just couple of bucks, it will just delay you. just my two cents.

    The Visa Screen can be applied for now and should be.

    Hi So your saying you dont have your VISA SCREEN CERTIFICATE yet ? Yes it should be the agency assisting you in everything yah. Im also new applicant and i think you have to have all the necessary documents before they can petition you. Our moderator suzanne4 has the best answer for you okey GOODLUCK
