The reduction was much, will definitely take my kids cards. I have done the medical b4 like 4yrs ago, but didn't complete it. Done know if I will start afresh or not.
I was also surprised myself because from the calculation given over the phone I budgeted higher, on getting there it was way lesser, I guess u wud v to call to verify , got there before 8 and was done by 11:30

@Wilsub, you will do it all over again. But take your kids immunization records pls. It will make things a lot cheaper for you. Wish I had my kids immunization records when I went, I would have saved a lot. It was just my baby's immunization records I had. And his was the cheapest. And pls Note, for the TB test they do for the kids. I beg you, make sure you ask them to give you a personal copy of the result. They sent mine to the Consulate, I did not have a copy. Oga ended up going back to QLife for me to collect the result for the kids. I had him scan it to me. It is very crucial when u are enrolling your kids in school here. They will ask for it.

Hello peeps. Happy New year. How is everyone doing?
Oladeep, Stancima, chicksy, koolkesh, hows everyone doing? Glad to see you guys are updating the thread.
Anyone who has gone for their interview and not heard anything yet just relax. Pretty sure the government shutdown is affecting all the agencies, home and abroad. Make we just pray for them to agree on time and reopen, cos its slowing down a lot. All will be well.

It doesn't arrive the same time. My kids own arrived before mine. When its family they don't send all at once. Sometimes they delay 1persons own, but it will eventually come. But u can go to the socia1xdl security office closest to you, to be sure there's no mistake causing the delay. Mine they said my middle name was spelt twice at the PORt of entry, so they had to correct it before it eventually came.

Good day house, really appreciate those who have contributed so far on this thread.

Please I have a question on behalf of a friend.

I want to find out how she can go about the Affidavit Of Support because the petitioner(her mother) is not working in the US.

She has been staying with her daughter (USC) ever since she got to the US, the mother just got her LRP approved recently and intends to petitioner for her soonest.

Thanks.

Hi Chicksy. Good to know you are out here in Seattle. I live in Lynnwood area.
If you opted for a social security card while filling the Visa form in Nigeria and you don't get it after 10days of arrival, visit the social security office. If you applied at the office here in Seattle and don't receive it after two weeks, give them a call. The wait on phone is usually long but not unbearable.
You can also visit the SS office to have it sorted out. Normally it should come within two weeks.
What part of Seattle are you?

You can add them to your case, unless your brother cannot afford it right now because of the fees involved., then that's a different thing entirely, But as for adding them, it does not affect anything, just that the same payments for you, is the same payments for your family, the Visa fees, the Greencard fees, the medical fees, the ticket. Etc. If it is the other way around then u can file for them to join you. But u have to start working and get yourself ready financially to have them join you.

Goodday friends, hope everyone is well. Please i have a question concerning immigrant visa, My mum & I were issued our immigrants visas last month, I was a derivative applicant, my mum being the main applicant but here is the issue, Originally, i wasn't the only derivative applicant of this visa case, My sister was also included, everything was going well but surprisingly, when we got our interview letter in July, her name wasn't included among those to be present at the interview, however we planned that when we got there we would make enquiry about it at the embassy. On the day of our interview, surprisingly my sister's name was in their file over there and while we were being screened before the main interview they asked for my sister, same thing happened when the visa officer came, she called my name, my mum's name and my sister's name but we explained to her that my sister didn't come because her name wasn't in the interview letter, she then asked if we would like her to come now or after, We said after, then after a few questions(we weren't issued our visa that day) because she asked for pictures of my mum with my sister when she was a kid, teenager & adult which we were ask to submit at one DHL office together with our passport which we did, then a few days later we were asked to come pick up the visa... Here is my question please, I tried to check our visa status on the embassy site and I & my mum's visa status have changed to "Issued".. But my sister's own is showing " Administrative processing ", please what does it mean?? I also read somewhere that administrative processing cases are usually resolved within 60days, but its been over 40 days now and we haven't heard from them, Should we write an email to them? Or is there any other thing needed to be done please??

Goodday everyone, Please i contacted them via email as some people adviced me, All i got was an automatic response, that i would be replied in 4-7 business days, Its been over 8 business days now, no reply, any idea what i should do now? @Stancima @koolkesh

Nothing. Just wait. The Shutdown could definitely be the delay. Fingers crossed.

P.S
Have you and your mum picked up your visas?

Thanks for your response, Yes we have picked up our visas, It says it'll expire in April, But we haven't bought tickets yet, we want to know if my sis would come along too, that's why we're waiting for an update from them, We really hope we can all go together
