Got a Canadian visa since last year and haven't used it. Saw this connection and jumped at it cos I will actually exit the airport and see some friends and colleagues and head back in. 4Hrs layover things. Lucky me grin

See and head back ke? Hopefully they will just be at the airport waiting for you, see you on exit and begin your check-in early enough. Layover time is absolutely short, remember you have immigration clearance to do on your way out and back in!

Please Sir, I need clarification

please I am to attend an exhibition in Germany and I have already booked appointment with the German embassy.

I was looking at the supporting documents and I saw; Certificate of Incorporation/Registration of the company in Nigeria, Memorandum and Articles of Association / Company and Allied Matters Act, Federal Inland Revenue Service Income Tax Clearance Certificate/Company Income Tax
Clearance Certificate of the past year and company´s bank statements of the last three months (only stamped and signed bank
statements accepted).

I am just an employee and my company said they can't handover the aforementioned company's documents to me though they have given me letter from the company to confirm that the company is aware of the trip.

please, what do I do? someone told me that the company's documents is targeted at self-employed not employee that I don't have to supply them as employee. but I can't confirm.

I did create a thread for it but no one responded. please I'll be grateful

Good day house. Pls I have a girl that have been staying with me since she was little and she's 14 years now. She's my cousin and an orphan. So we started doing adoption process for her and the papers just came out.

we just did international passport for her. Now we want to get a visa for her so she can come with hubby over here. We plan on doing Xmas here before returning back.


My question is if we fill in the application form for her, and she gets an interview appointment for next year, is it possible hubby takes her before then to the embassy for interview since he has a running visa already and he's planning to come witg her here this DEC first week.

My POE experience today 10th November.
POE: Boston Logan.
It was a long trip and I was tired, disoriented due to the many stopovers. I flew Qatar airways from Uganda Entebbe Airport-Kigali-Salalah-Doha-Boston.
After the automatic border control machines, I joined the queue. About 3 flights arrived at the same time so the crowd was quite a huge one.
Officer: Hello how are you today?
Me: I'm ok.
Officer: where are you flying in from?
Me: Uganda
Officer: What is the purpose of your visit?
Me: bump bump
Officer: Do you have the flight ticket to your next destination?
Me: yes, but I dont have the boarding pass since its a different airline
Officer: What do you do?
Me: I am a ...
Officer: I see. How long are you staying?
Me: x days
Officer: How much money do you have on you?
Me: $x
Stamps me in till May 2019. Have a good one
Me: thanks
Waiting to board my flight to San Francisco.
Goodluck and safe trip to everyone traveling around this time. The temperatures have really dropped so y'all stay warm.

Not necessary. Also, it will depend on the State you plan on visiting.

Not all States in the US experiences winter.

Nope. All Qatar airways from Entebbe to Boston. Then Alaska airlines from Boston to San Francisco.
Also there were no change of planes in all the stopovers between Entebbe and Doha. Just technical stopovers to drop passengers, refuel, pick up some new passengers and take off.
What I observe is that passenger volume in East Africa is low. Unlike naija where they would even oversell seats self. In spite of all the pick and drop, I had a whole row of 3 seats to myself.

I am glad you asked this question . I had the same concerns because I am planning to spend a few weeks this November in US . My plan was October which I filled in my form and I also stated its for a short vacation. I am not so bothered because if he can approve for October then there is no difference between that and November.

Hello everyone, please I need your advice.

I was granted a US visa last year to attend my Cousin’s wedding in Atlanta. Due to work commitments, I couldn’t make it then.

Now I am travelling to New York on vacation and will be staying in an hotel. Considering the change in intention, is there possibility that I may have any issue at the POE.

Will really appreciate your advice/suggestions.
