BnBarbie: Hello all,
Please I need your advice on behalf of a friend. Her question goes thus;

I got my visa last month to give birth in the US and will be travelling by Gods grace this month. My husband intends 2go 4his interview later dis mnth or in december. Pls what is best 4him 2say he's going 4? Vacation or 2witness the birth of his baby? Any oda tips 4him dat mait help?

Did you get the visa for the sole reason of giving birth, or you got a visa for some other reason and you feel you can use same for medical reason?

The husband can apply for his visa, but he must not travel for any other purpose other than stating he wants to be with his wife during her medical process.

Else the VO will find it difficult issuing him a visa for pleasure at a time he should be spending encouraging time with his wife who will be in the States on medical reasons.

Thanks for ur response. Yes she applied 4 d sole purpose of giving birth in d US. So it won't count against him dat they dint apply 2geda as at when his wife applied? Isn't it possible dat part of y she was given a visa was cos her husband was her social tie 2 nigeria?

At the time she was interviewed, if she is still employed and was able to prove this among other ties, it is a good start.

And Hope she didnt indicate that she has a relative or friend in the States?

Meanwhile, the husband will only need to convince the VO on the reason why he didnt apply with her in the first instance.

This visa issuance to the husband, will only be a tall task if the wife already indicated in her DS-160 that she has people in the U.S. In which case, the CO is at a discretion to either issue or not to. Since the wife can as well fall back on her people in the States to stay around her through the medical process.

She has family there and she indicated that she'd b staying with her aunt both in her DS-160 and during her interview. So nw dat dis is a minus, any advice pls?

Really to be frank with you, it is a 50-50 situation for him.

Meaning : For now no family tie back home, relatives mostly in the States (the CO will want to view his/her assessment from this angle), it now boils down to the prospect and long term job security of the wife and that of her husband back home in Nigeria.

The husband must find a very convincing story to tell regarding his absence during the wife's visa interview.

You can use it for pleasure. Only be ready to tell the CBP officer a convincing reason for visiting the U.S. with itinerary to make your point.

The CO will ask you why you were denied the first time. He / she will also want to know how your circumstance has changed presently from 2006.

Are you economically bouyant now to fend for all your family members while studying in the States?

Since you are now financially ok to take care of your family while in the States, you can apply for the visa for you and everyone intending to travel with you.

You need a letter from UNILAG to show the authenticity of the 300L student. You also need a birth certificate for the 2yr old girl showing the full names of both parents as the real custodian.

Do not forget the surname of that girl must tally with the person inviting since he is your husband's uncle who must also bear the same surname.

There is no problem if you havent changed your maiden name, just ensure you proceed to the embassy with your marriage certificate and some pictures to serve as proof.

I am now worried because i have not heard of this before or what do you think do they do review of applications and reconsider applicants or what?

It is possible to call for a re-interview or re-verification of issued visa if something comes up. Since you were told you'll be contacted again, it's best you wait or you can as well go to the consulate to get your mind cleared.
Re: Usa Visit Visa by shessyfavour: 10:57pm On Nov 13, 2013
Okay tzetzefly i am jut confused because i never heard of that after being denied a visa without telling me they ll get back to me after admin review or something like that. What do i have to go with to be able to enter the embassy?

An e-mail sent to you by the embassy is needed to be shown at the gate before you can be permitted to enter.

And better still, the consulate will get back to you through an e-mail if you can send an enquiry with your Name, Passport Number, and Date of Birth to:

You can apply at anytime, but you cannot travel before your conference date.

The invitation is for you alone and a conference it says not a vacation. So no, you cant take them with you.
