The actual language used is "all visas leading to permanent residency"
So IR and F categories
felifeli:


I have been thinking the same. The explanation so far has been general immigration visa but as we know immigration visa types are not the same (employment, IR, F etc) . I learn that even in countries under ban family visas for spouse and parents of US citizens are still considered for approval. Will they still enjoy that privilege in Nigeria too?
Re: At The NVC Processing Stage Of The U. S Family Based Preference Category. by richhills(m): 10:35pm On Feb 13
Meaning from now till September
feb20Obinna:
Responding, the US Ambassador Leonard said the visa issue was not a ban and that the action was not meant to be a permanent one. saying it would hopefully be resolved “in a single-digit month.”

I just spoke with a US lawyer and he says the ban can only legally affect those who are about to apply. Given the reason for the ban (document control), it will be both immoral and unjustified to ban those that are already "documentarily qualified" since they have scaled the controls. Banning on those grounds alone can be challenged in court because applicants are being retroactively punished. Will they then be required to go submit their qualifying documents all over again? Since the consular officer has "no discretion" to issue or deny a family immigration visa, he must state the reason for denial if any, by the hard fact such as "visa ban". And as the lawyer says, this can be challenged.
Be hopeful if you have scaled the "documentarily qualified " stage. Legal help can be an option.

This makes a lot of sense.
I wish one can have a direct answer on this issue from nvc. But it's so difficult to speak to them. Almost mission impossible.

Where they given a white slip to aubmit at dhl or approved the same day they went for the interview?thanks

After the interview they were issued a white paper. We created a profile for them on the appointment booking website but due to the fact that one persons medical result was not ready since Dec 2019 til February 2020 when it was finally out and negative.
Next day we received an email and SMS to come pick up stamped passports.

It looks like issue date was the date of interview even though they did not receive the visa until more than 2 months after . That is very bad of the US embassy.

Naaaa, QLife had to call for a medical retake and they said it will take 10 weeks. I guess the embassy was in copy

Please did they collect the passport during the interview? I was also given a white paper after my interview for further medical tests, qlife told me they will send the result to them, I’ve been wondering how the embassy will get my passport after the medical test.

This happened to me earlier this week. If you say there is no message check the status beside you and your petitioners name and check if the status as changed from submitted to accepted.
If this is the case in some days time you should get an email which will state status complete.

Or go to your msg icon click on it if it indicates you have a msg. Sometimes it takes forever for the msg to come up. So you might have to refresh severally before you see the msg.

Why don't you wait till 21st or 22nd to see whether this immigration ban will be implemented.
If it is then call nvc and explain the situation and their answer will guide you on the next step.

Or better still if you have an immigration lawyer handling your application. He will be of help and know what to do.
Goodluck

Good day
Maybe you should visit passport office and talk to their officials present your case and let them tell you the way forward.
Pls talk to the uniformed men. Not those on the roadside.
