Hello carnal,

Your friend can travel to the U.S. as long as his visa does not expire before he reaches the port of entry. He will need to make an appointment for his father online at http://www.ustraveldocs.com/ng/.


Hi,

Is this group now for both IV and NIV cases?

I had my IV interview on the 8th of November and it was approved. Any idea when I'll get my passport back?

Thanks

Good day. My case might not be an IV one but I'd appreciate if you could point me in the right direction. I'm a single mother to a 12yr old. I've been solely raising her since she was 9months after her dad died. I was never married to her dad. We have travelled to about 7 countries together before on holidays. I have been to the US before and renewed my visa months ago then decided to apply for her to go experience white Christmas but she was denied the visa.
The interviewer clearly had issues with the address on her application being different from mine when I applied but my daughter also explained that we recently moved towns. And yes we did move cities as I got a transfer to the city where she's schooling which happens to be the city where I was raised. I have utility bills to back this. The interviewer also had issues with her birth certificate being later than her date of birth which I explained that the first was lost in transit and I have a court affidavit to back that up. I also have a court affidavit of a single parent notarised by the ministry of foreign affairs, which I have submitted to embassies in the past and been issued with a visa for her. I was not asked for this document in this case.
I am a banker who have worked for over 10 years with a very good salary and well travelled. Also well travelled with my daughter. Please what should I do to make my circumstances clearer as I am pained that my status as a single parent is the reason why my child could not get this visa.

Hello Davidkking,

Yes, you can get a student visa on a passport with less than 5 years' validity. You will need to renew your passport and visa before your studies are completed.

Please is it possible to get an undergraduate 4years f1 visa stamped on a passport that is only valid for 3 years?

Hello Hushush,

Photocopies will be fine.

hushush:
Hello anyone that can help please, when you attended your immigration interview, did you go with the original or photocopy tax return of your financial sponsor?
My financial sponsor does not want to give me the original copy, he claims all i need is the photocopy

Hello hushush,

You cannot use your own savings or money to supplement the AOS. The money must come from a U.S. citizen sponsor - if your husband has any other U.S. citizen relatives, he might wish to ask them if they are willing to serve as joint sponsors.

hushush:
Dear VO,
I am currently at the NVC stage with our 2children. However, my US citizen husband’s income is lower than the poverty guideline for a family of 4, i have a real estate in Nigeria and a savings accout in the US opened on previous visits.
Can i support our AOS with these assests? Is the real estate acceptable as “an asset i can turn to cash within a year”? Also is my US bank statement of account acceptable.

Thanks in anticipation

@lagosniv good day sir/ma'am

I'm curious about what the hold up at the Lagos Embassy is, for sending available interview slots to NVC for IR and CR visas

Some of us have been waiting for available interview dates since case complete of August 22, 24 and so on

Each time we call the NVC to verify if we have received interview dates, they tell us that they are waiting on Lagos Embassy to send them available slots

It is extremely difficult to be this far apart from our spouses especially during the holidays. Many of us are paying outrageous last minute ticket prices just to return to Nigeria to spend Christmas with our spouses. We were hopeful they would be interviewed by November or latest early December, in time to join us here in the States for Christmas

Please help us understand what is causing the delay, thank you

Pleasant day, everyone.

Please, just want to ask about the online submission of documents to NVC. I understand that one has to bring original and copies of all civil documents to the interview.

My question is, having submitted scanned copies of the AOS and Tax documents online, do I have to come to the interview with originally signed copies of these docs, by my sponsos, to the interview?

Thank you!
