Thank you for the opportunity given to further my studies at Iowa state university, Ames, U.S.A. But please i have a question regarding my visa which was just collected today. On my visa it reads that the visa expires in 2 years (2020) but meanwhile i have earlier indicated in my application that my program takes 5 years and ends in 2023. I explained to the officer at the collection center at DHL house, isolo but i was told that its correct because that is the maximum amount of years being issued.
Please sir/ma, i would like to confirm this information and the necessary step to take if required.
Thank you sir/ma.

Hello LagosNIV. Please, if one's passport photograph does not show on the Confirmation page, will that be a problem? The system did reject my passport and simply asked me to come with a new passport photograph alongside my confirmation email for my interview.
I am asking this because a part of the appointment confirmation stated this: "Effective immediately,visa applicants who do not upload their photos when submitting their DS-160 application will be turned away and advised to complete their application by uploading a proper photo. This will usually require the rescheduling of their appointment. The process for uploading photos is easy and is thoroughly explained in our on-line application. Avoid disappointment and delay-upload your photo as part of your visa application!"

Dear Abuja NIV/VO,
My wife sent in her passport for US Visa renewal (Drop Box - Att: Abuja Embassy) on 23 April ; status changed to 'Application Received' on 26 April and since then no response from the embassy .
Appreciate an update.............

Hi Abuja/Lagos NIV,
I'm newly pregnant and planning to give birth in a birthing centre in the US because I want an unmedicated and natural childbirth process. Do VO's frown upon birthing centres as against hospitals?
Secondly, previous US visa expires this month and I will renew soon, can I proceed with renewal via dropbox or should I schedule an interview instead since my purpose for visit is to have a baby.
I look forward to your response.

You must possess a passport valid for travel to the United States with a validity date at least six months beyond your intended period of stay in the United States (unless country-specific agreements provide exemptions). Refer to this website for answers related to the topic of expired passports and valid U.S. visas. http://www.ustraveldocs.com/ng/ng-gen-faq.asp

An F1's spouse and unmarried, minor children who intend to reside with the F1 during the F1s study is required to demonstrate proof of relationship, like a legal marriage certificate/birth certificate. Please refer to this website for additional information about support documents necessary for an F1/M1 and F2/M2 visa interview. http://www.ustraveldocs.com/ng/ng-niv-typefandm.asp and https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/study/student-visa.html#spouse

A denial under 214b is temporary. However, before reapplying, an applicant refused under Section 214(b) should review carefully their situation and realistically evaluate their ties. They may write down on paper what qualifying ties they think they have which may not have been evaluated at the time of their interview with the consular officer. Also, if they have been refused, they should review what documents were submitted for the consul to consider. Applicants refused visas under section 214(b) may reapply for a visa. When they do, they will have to show further evidence of their ties or how their circumstances have changed since the time of the original application. It may help to answer the following questions before reapplying: (1) Did I explain my situation accurately? (2) Did the consular officer overlook something? (3) Is there any additional information I can present to establish my residence and strong ties abroad?
Applicants should also bear in mind that they will be charged a nonrefundable application fee each time they apply for a visa, regardless of whether a visa is issued. Please refer to http://www.ustraveldocs.com/ng/ng-gen-faq.asp#qlistprofile2 for additional information.

If you are referring to the site through which you initiate the visa application/appointment process (Global Support Services), then please login and input your password to access your earlier application form via the following GSS Denmark site. http://www.ustraveldocs.com/dk/index.html?firstTime=No
If you created the earlier application in a country other than the one in which you currently reside, then: You do not need to create another profile if it is also serviced by CGI. You can simply contact us through the Contact Us section on http://www.ustraveldocs.com/ng/ng-main-contactus.asp and share your passport number, UID or email address so we can retrieve and update your profile with the new country where you plan to apply for your US Visa. If you are applying in a country that is not covered by CGI, you will be invited to create a new profile. As a reminder, MRV fee receipts paid in one country are non-transferable to the other country.
Also, refer to the U.S. Embassy in Denmark site for visa interview requirements and methods of contacting customer service for consular related topics. https://dk.usembassy.gov/visas/nonimmigrant-visas/

Thank you for asking this important question. First, go to the local police station and report your document(s) lost or stolen. If available, you will need to provide copies of the original documents. You will be issued a police report detailing the incident. Don’t forget to make an extra copy of the report for your own records . Second, contact your local Nigerian Immigration Services for information about the procedure to replace a lost or stolen passport.
Then, report your visa lost or stolen by emailing the Consular Section at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate outside the United States which issued your visa. Go to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate website to locate the email address and contact information. Be sure to include your full name, date of birth, place of birth, address in the United States, and an e-mail address (if available). Specifically state whether the visa was lost or stolen. If you have a copy of the passport or visa, scan and email this to the embassy or consulate. Otherwise, if known, report the category of visa, and the passport number from the lost/stolen visa. If you have already reported your visa lost/stolen to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate, and then you later find your misplaced visa, then your visa will be invalid for future travel to the United States. Therefore, in that situation you must apply for a new visa at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate.
Finally, applicants who previously received a full validity visa and are now applying for a visa in the same visa category within one year of the expiration of their last visa may apply in a special "renewal" category which generally has shorter waiting times than other categories or they may make a regular visa interview appointment. Refer to the following online resources for additional information: http://www.ustraveldocs.com/ng/ng-niv-visarenew.html and https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/visa-information-resources/lost-stolen-visas.html

Bring legitimate documents in the official language of Nigeria that:
-Demonstrate strong financial, social, and family ties to your home country that will compel you to return to your country after your program of study in the U.S. ends.
- Support your application and which give credible evidence that you have enough readily-available funds to meet all expenses for the first year of study and that you have access to funds sufficient to cover all expenses while you remain in the United States. M-1 applicants must demonstrate the ability to pay all tuition and living costs for the entire period of their intended stay.
Original copies of bank statements, scholarship award letters, etc.will be accepted.
If you are financially sponsored by another person, bring proof of your relationship to the sponsor (such as your birth certificate), the sponsor's most recent original tax forms and the sponsor's original bank statements and/or fixed deposit certificates.

Dear ABUJANIV /LAGOSNIV,
It is so nice to have you back.
Please what is the use in meeting the criteria for Expedited Visa Appointment and not able to book an earlier date than what is shown on the profile? I have urgent business travel and have all the required documentation both from the US company and Nigeria Company affirming the opportunity to be lost. However, I am unable to book an appointment that can enable meet up with this travel.
I had earlier done drop box and expected my passport earlier but was invited for interview (most likely to see my zero balance and other documentation because i had a child in the states). But this is dealing a heavy blow on my business travel which came up after i had submitted my passport (along with passports of other members of the family) for a planned family vacation in August.
What is the way forward?
Thank you in advance for your response.

Thanks for your response. Fortunately, my friend has found the missing passport.
I will like to clarify an information from the site below. I'm in the process of renewing my visa via dropbox. I have a 4yr old child who has not been issued a US visa before. Is it possible to apply for him through my dropbox application while also renewing mine through dropbox based on the information on the site?
