The Importance of Document Checklists

Posted by admin - Bellissimo Law Group PC

Documentation is the foundation of an immigration application so it is important to be thorough when checking over your list of required documents.  Always check when original documentation is required and when photocopies will suffice.  In some cases the document checklist provided by the Centralized Intake Office (CIO) will differ from that of the visa office.  Not providing complete documentation may result in an application being returned, which is inconvenient enough, but in some cases can result in severely adverse effects in regards to applications under a time-sensitive program, such as those that are capped.

There is no procedural or legal recourse available to applicants who find themselves in this situation. Therefore always remember to check both CIO and visa office specific document lists when compiling such an application.
