please i need your help. my ds 160 forms states that my husband will be travelling with me. but we just found out that he will be very buzy during my travel period and not be able to come with me. please what kind of mail should i send to the us embassy informing them of the change. so that it wont be a problem during my interview which is in few days.. thank you
I'm not sure whether there is any special kind of mail that you should send to the US embassy informing them of the change.
But, instead of jeopardising your application and risking refusal record against your name, why not withdraw the application?
In my opinion, i think this last moment change of circumstance may have negative impact on the application as it suggest poor organisation and inconsistency, i hope i'm wrong.

Vicjustice is No objection certificate NOC (which i think is the same as letter from school) compulsory for a student traveling on holiday? And if yes when you present the letter to them as proof of ties to home country during the interview will they run check on it by taking it along with the primary documents? Am not a student but i want to use NOC as a ties to home country although as a tourist NOC is not among the required documents....
If you are travelling abroad as a student, especially during school activity period, you would be expected to provide such letter as a prove that your travel is ok with the school and your study schedule: but whether the embassy "run check" on the document or not depends on the discretion of the visa officer. But i can inform you that it takes no time for them to telephone the school for verification, and if you are caught, you would be banned for life. Is it worth it?

Hello gurus here
@vicjustice and @justwise
I had a little arguement wothmy boss about SOA today and i need your input
The company's acc has over 300m transaction withim the last 6month but less than 2m as of when the SOA was printed today and boss says the statement is credible enough even with less than 2m as closing bal but i find it difficult to agree with him since the closing bal didnt show enough cash to sponsor me for my trip.
I will like to know if i can go to the embassy with this SOA

NOTE not that the company is broke but all cash has been used to restock.. Help a brother out please, my interview is just few days away. Thanks
Even if the statement of account shows its transaction history, or even if the N300m is still available, how is the company's account and the money in it suitable to be used for sponsoring your trip?

Except the compensation is too little for them to bother, you should be expecting an appeal.
The amount is actually in 7 figures, we actually sued for N20m but offered a significantly reduced compensation.
Understand that I lost about €3000 (three thousand Euros) on air tickets as a result of Ups' negligence and other legal costs through the process of pursuing justice: ups had the chance to settle out of court, but they chose to lie in defence of their negligence.
I doubt they want to appeal because, their barristers are obviously glad to see it come to an end.
To be honest, I am the one considering appealing the quantum because, I expected to get more compensation than what is being offered: either way, I'm glad to have the victory. Alway sue and sue until corruption is down.
Business / Re: UPS Courier: My Frustrating Disappointment by Vicjustice: 10:05pm On Oct 25
Thanks guys for your interest and support in this matter.
After 8 years of prolonged battle with UPS, today, the case has finally come to an end.
The judge in a Benin high court ruled in my favour and the courier giant has been ordered to pay a compensation: however, the amount is not what i was expecting.
The good thing is that i was able to cause their knee to buckle: had it been that people have the habit of bringing law-suits against giant entities including Police, there would have been less corruption in Nigeria.
Please, ladies and gentlemen, follow suit and form a habit of legally challenging those giants who violate you: stop that lazy mindset of leaving "everything to God" and learn to fight for your right if you can, just fight as hard as you can and leave the rest.

Hello Everyone,

I have completed an only university program in USA and I am about to apply for a USA visa to attend my graduation. I would like to go with my dad. I have traveled many times to the UK and currently have a valid 2years schengen visa which wouldn't have expired when I apply for the visa. I earn 500k plus. My dad has also traveled to UK and Itali before but was denied USA visa in 2002. I would sponsor myself and he will also sponsor himself. Kindly let us know if we stand a high chance of being granted the visa. We have no business to remain in the USA because we have very good jobs and also have many properties like land, cars, house.
Thank you
Well, based on your travel history and your financial condition, I would say that you have a good chance if things are done well.
But I hope that tthe reasons for your dad's American visa refusal back then didn't include misrepresentation in the perspective of the visa officer: it it does, that may mean he's excluded from the USA for life.

Hello sire,
Can a sworn affidavit and age attestation be used when applying for visa, In the absence of a Birth certificate?
Yes, that is perfect, it is acceptable in every government institution including the embassy.

Hello Mr Vicjustice,
Please I am in a dilemma :
I have questions based on my profile.
I have been denied US visa, twice in 2009 and once in 2012. First denial was on educational purposes while second was on visiting.
I have also be denied UK visa in 2008 based on the submission of falsified WAEC document which i wasn't aware of. I applied again in 2010 and was also denied based on the first denier. The second denier stated,a 10 years ban have been applied since my first denier.
I have then studied in Cyprus for my Bsc and graduated with a 1st class in 2013. I have also been to Germany for a conference in 2012.
MY QUESTION: I am planning to go for my Msc in Australia for Febuary 2018. Hope the UK and US denier wont affect my VISA application?
Please I need an urgent response
The Australian immigration does not share common database with with any of these countries that you mentioned, so it's highly unlikely that they would find out about your UK incident. However, you would be required to answer questions like "have you ever applied for a visa for any country, was the visa issued?"
"Have you ever been refused a visa for any country?
"
So, what would you answer to these questions?
Bear in mind that the fact that they do not share a common database does not mean that they do not share intelligence.

Good Morning VicJustice,

My big brother is married with a child and his wife is expecting a second child. He resides in the church compound and he is a priest in an Anglican church. The church secured a conference for him and the venerable to attend in the U.S. He went for his visa interview on September 27th, 2017 for that conference that the church is sponsoring him and the venerable to attend in the US, he was denied visa because the interviewer thinks that he wouldn't come back after the conference. He had all the necessary documentation that is required for the interview, including hotel reservation, travel date, and returned date. My question is how could the interviewer determine that he would not come back when it is the church that is sending him to the conference so that he will go there and participate, learn some stuff that he will come back to the church and train the other young priests.

He and the venerable has a different interview date. The conference was secured for both of them for the second week in November 2017.

The venerable has his interview coming up on the 5th of October what are the chances that he will be granted a visa? Also the venerable went for a visa interview last year that the church sponsored too and he was denied visa too, I don't know the reason why they didn't grant him visa then, now he is going again for conference visa for the second time.

What can my big brother do to obtain a visa for that conference being that the conference was already paid for?

Please, any help will be gladly appreciated.
Remember that your brother is not in a conventional employment, so, it is likely that the visa officer does not consider the Church as a bona-fide employment setting, therefore, the officer might not want to rely on the mercy of your brother's moral discretion to abide by the visa condition.
Perhaps you brother needs more of the church backings and even a guarantor.

From what you wrote about the calibre of your personality and your activities, neither you nor your Dad should have any difficulty in getting a US visa if the applications are done well.

Good evening everyone. A friend applied for the f1 students visa but he was denied on the 6th of this month, June. according to him, he was anxious and as a result couldn't answer the questions well even though he knew them.
He was asked that "why did you choose the school". how said the fee is affordable for his sponsor, they have good infrastructures, and the climate is like that of Nigeria, which will help him to adapt easily.
He said where he got it wrong is that he didn't know anything about the city, and they asked that. and that he was too nervous.
what advice do you have for him?
Oh, you're such a nice guy asking all these questions for your "friend"
But how about you tell your "friend" about this forum so he can ask these questions himself

Good afternoon, please I will like to verify an answer .

I REALLY CANT REMEMBER IS BEEN OVER 4YEARS then my ckunsellor said they will ask for the refusal letter in the school am applying to as well as the embassy. My question is HOW CAN I GET THE REFUSAL LETTER.or is there anything that can be done about it.Your uttmost response will be appreciated.
Thank you
Simply answer by saying that the visa officer stated that h/he wasn't satisfied that you fulfilled all requirements, and that the explanation was rather vague to your understanding.

Good morning House,
I was sent a statement Letter from Austrian Embassy that they feel I have insufficient fund in my account and they believe I will not return if I travel. Am give 7 days to reply and tell them otherwise or risk visa denial.I want to know if sending another bank statement that has sufficient money and telling them I have a son here who is still tender and showing the a pic of us will do. Cause am a student and still single but have a child. What are your advice pls.
The solution is not "sending another bank statement that has sufficient amount of money", the issue is whether the bank statement meets the requirements which include your relationship with the sponsor and why he or she is sponsoring you.
Also, it would be hard for a visa officer to consider your child as a tie to return to Nigeria for.

Being informed that you are entitled to appeal is not the same thing as being told to appeal.

Well, the main issue that i see here is the sponsor that you presented, it is not an ideal thing to present an "uncle" or anybody who is not your parents, sibling or spouse as a sponsor: this is perhaps what they meant by insufficient documentation, which may mean that the document provided in regard to sponsor is not sufficient as the sponsor is not deemed appropriate.

Good evening house,
Please I need your candid advice on how to package my Aunt's application. My sister wants her to come and help her take care of her kids in US for a period of 6 months as our mum is late. She doesn't have an account as she's a petty trader but my sister, a certified Nurse wants to sponsor her trip to the US. Please, what can we do to increase her chances of getting a US visa.
Thanks
Though it is not impossible, but it would be hard to get her a visa given that she does not seem to have something to return to Nigeria for, i mean, something to represent her tie to Nigeria.
Now, being an extended family member, her relationship with the invitee is not somewhat that would be considered bona-fide, it would be different if she was her mother, father or sibling.
To be successful in inviting and obtaining a visa for a distant relative who cannot sponsor herself (especially if the person is not considered aged), the invitee must be considered a person of imposing calibre that merits trust and overwhelming capability: but if the invitee is just a regular person, that task may be difficult.
If however you want to go ahead with the visa application, be careful what she says is her reason for the travel, she may be refused if she states explicitly that she is travelling to mind the kids because, that activity may be considered as a job and a potential reason to want to stay illegally in the US.

I don't think the embassy can tell you to appeal, they can only inform you that you are allowed to appeal the decision.
Unfortunately, no one can advice you without knowing the documents that were involved and their deficiencies.

Thanks Bro for your help and all those who gave me positive suggestion and i pray you all find favor in times of your NEED.I will go ahead and make the appeal ,hopefully something good comes out GOOD

But just in case they deny the request (God Forbid )and i serve the 1 year and 6 months ban ,would i have problem ,if i apply to any other Europe country?
I like the responses of Saintsquere, Femiratess and Mavinc4u, i think they did justice to your query.
As for whether you would have problem in future visa application after serving the 18 months ban, my answer is, although, there is no official application of any further punishment, but yet, the impact of the ban will always have negative influence on your future visa application as it will always remain in your travel history which you are required to declare whenever you are faced with the question: "Have you ever been refused entry, removed or asked to leave another country?"
Appealing the decision is your best bet: but remember, since the purpose of the visa is now invalid (as the school has cancelled your admission), you should not be appealing against the decision to cancel your visa, but rather appeal the ban.

Hi guys. I have a pressing question which i need opinions on.
I interviewed as beneficiary to a us dv lottery applicant which was refused back in 2012. Must i answer yes to having being denied a visa before? It confuses me because i wasn't the principal applicant then as such, my name was not on the refusal letter. Any input will be appreciated. If it helps, the refusal was on grounds of ineligibility.
If you have been refused a visa, then tick YES, and if you have not been refused a visa, then tick NO.
In this case (that you explained ), it wasn't your own application that was refused, so tick "NO".
BUT I WANT TO WARN YOU THAT IF YOUR FINGER PRINTS OR EYE SCAN WERE TAKEN DURING YOUR IMPERSONATION, YOU HAVE TO FORGET ABOUT THE USA FOR LIFE OR KEEP ON USING THE IDENTITY ON YOUR FINGER PRINTS OR EYE SCAN.

Hi Vicjustice,
I have my mum's brother who wants to invite me to the UK. As my uncle we do not have the same surname. Do I need to provide any proof of relationship or we could just go ahead with his deeds and council bill and statement of account as well as the invitation letter?
Also I would like to ask how long it takes to get a UK visa in Nigeria.
Thank you for your kind responses so far. I have been reading.
The Visa Officer would expect you to prove your relationship as it is not uncommon for visa officers to hear Nigerians calling anyone a brother, sister, uncle, auntie, cousin, even daddy or mommy, so it is up to you to prove the relationship.
Birth certificate or age declaration document can help, and since he is from your mom's family, then her family name should correspond.
