Interview Documents

At the time of their interview, applicants will need to provide the following documents:

  • Photocopy of the visa from the person requesting parole showing the immigrant visa or CP1 parole recipient has entered the United States.
  • Valid passport.
  • Immigrant visa forms DS-230, part I and II.  Note: Given the long wait times for an appointment, these forms are likely to change prior to the applicant’s interview.  At the time of the interview, the consular officer may require the applicant to complete a current form.   IMPORTANT: Please note that Family-Based Parole (CP3) Program cases cannot use the new DS-260: Online Immigrant Visa Application Form.  These cases must still use the paper-based DS-230.
  • (2) Frontal color photos measuring 50mm x 50mm, with white background.
  • Legalized Birth certificate.
  • Current legalized marriage certificate (if applicable).
  • Legalized Divorce certificates from any previous marriage (if applicable).
  • If widowed, legalized death certificate from previous spouse.
  • Documents that prove the relationship between the visa holder and the parole applicant. In the case of a child, the applicant will need to provide a legalized birth certificate stating that the child is the son/daughter of the visa holder.  In the case of a brother or sister, the applicant will need to provide his or her legalized birth certificate and that of the visa holder.
  • Police certificates/court records (for applicants sixteen years of age or older) issued within six months of the visa interview date.
  • Medical exam.  Applicants need to check the list of hospitals (PDF 120 KB) where they can have their medical examination.  Please keep in mind that you may wish to have the medical examination for derivative children done ONLY IF the children are included in the case AND they will be under 21 years old and unmarried at the time of their scheduled interview.  Derivative children who are 21 or older or are married on the day of interview will not be able to remain in your case and so will not need to submit a medical check or other documents.
  • Affidavit of Support, Form I-134 (PDF 100 KB) (For CFRP applicants accepted into the CFRP program before February 17, 2015 only if expressly requested by a consular or DHS officer).
