HI INLD,

It'd probably be best for you to post this as a new thread.

Hi all, for US filers, now that we're meant to send our packets to the New York VFS for scanning instead of to Sheffield directly does that mean we still should send the copy packet of our documents along side the originals? Or is that unnecessary now that the documents are getting scanned and sent on to Sheffield.

Thank you.

1. Make a photocopy (black and white will do) of every document you submit. If you genuinely don't mind not getting certain documents back, then don't enclose a copy but remember if your visa is denied and you want to reapply, some of the documents may be needed again.
2. Put them in logical order, such as printed-out application, followed by any extra form you need to submit such as Appendix 2, letters of introduction and sponsorship, passport(s), photos of the correct size, and then put together your financial documents, then accommodation, and lastly your relationship.
3. Don't use clips, binders, folders or anything else. Small items which may get lost can be placed inside a transparent Ziploc bag, such as passport, ID card, biometric residence permit etc. While you may think this will help the ECO (visa officer) to find what they are looking for, the reverse is usually the case. They will have to remove all clips, binders, folders, content page etc and rearrange the documents in their preferred order.
4. Make two piles, one for the originals and the other for the copies, in identical order, and hold each pile together with strings. Then it becomes a simple job for visa office staff to cut the strings, rearrange in their preferred order and present them to ECO (entry clearance officer) for review.
5. While each application is unique and some people may need more supporting documents than others, there is really no need to submit anything thicker than an inch (2.5 cm) or so. People often overdo communications record such as Skype log and texts. It should come to no more than 10 to 15 pages in all, leaving out the actual conversations but just recording the names of sender and recipient, with dates.
Hi Joppa

1) Will all original documents (passport, payslips, marriage cert, bank statements etc) be sent back to me, or do I need to indicate it anywhere? Or will it be assumed that if my documents are both in originals AND in copies, Home Office will return the originals?

2) Do you recommend that I include a self-addressed stamp envelope with tracking for Home Office to return the documents?

Thank you.
