Thanks for the response. Please I want to be very clear, my visa expires in February, I have paid visa fee to renew, i saw that I qualify for Dropbox while I was trying to schedule appointment. I didn’t proceed beyond that because I wanted to be sure so I can get my relevant documents ready.

The question I am asking is: how long do I have to submit my passport/credentials to DHL?

Since there might not be an interview, I’m sure there’s a deadline to submit? The reason I am asking is I don’t have all my documents ready yet, I mean bank statement and work related documents. I don’t want any wahala. Thanks for your response.

Also, in addition, what documents should I submit along with my passports?
call the DHL office to be sure. I know that you only need your passport and your DS160 form

I think you've taken a good decision. Trending now.....birthing in the US and Canada Asylum seekers.

If anything concerning you correlates to either or both, it is mostly likely that you will face extra scrutiny.

Also trending...Elections in February.

Hello all, what are the chances that a child of 1 year accompanying her grandma who is a permanent resident would be given a visa? The child's mother will be going for a course during that period and the father is presently in Canada?

Re: USA Visit Visa Part 3 by Peagee: 4:59pm On Jan 10
Good day everyone, my wife and I had our interview @ Abuja last week. We were refused, please help me with your opinions to know what went wrong.
VO - Passport
me - Passed the passports to her
VO - Where are you going in the US?
me - Texas
VO - Faced me, where do you work?
me - told her
VO - Faced WIfy, what do you do?
WIfy- Told her
VO - why are you going to the US?
Me - Going for a short vacation and spend the Valentine's there.
VO - Do you have kids?
Me & WIfy - Yes, 3 children
VO - Do you have anyone in the US?
Me & WIfy - No
VO - You are not eligible this time around.

NOTE:
I had an uncle that was working with the Nigeria Ambassador to Canada about 18yrs ago, my uncle travelled to Canada with the Ambassador when he got the appointment(I don't know the type of Visa my uncle got to travel with him) After 4 years when he finished his tenure my uncle relocated to New York( I don't know the status he used to enter the USA).
My uncle has visited Nigeria about 3 times since then and spent weeks or months when he comes around.
About 4 years ago he had stroke, rushed to the hospital and died in the US, and he was buried there.
Please I want to know if the embassy will have his record has been dead or they will have it as someone that travelled and didn't come back. I am just surprised that the interview ended almost immediately she asked if we have anybody in the US.
Please I need your opinions because we intend to apply with the family for holidays later in the year.
NOTE: No travel history, my wife just wanted to visit US because most of her colleagues have visited so I am just trying to fulfil her desire. Thanks everyone.

Cross-check your form again sha and see once more what was filled in that “family in the US” section or thereabouts.... You guys possibly may have filled something different from what you said during the interview, possibly.

Unfortunate about the denial.

I don't think your late uncle pass presence living in the US should affect your own visa approval.
Re: USA Visit Visa Part 3 by Yustob: 6:55pm On Jan 10
I'm currently trying to process a visa to US, the agent told me i can go with visiting visa that when i can get there i can change it to employment visa. I want to ask if it's possible. I really want to travel but not as an illegal immigrant. Every idea is welcome.

You can't change it.

Sorry about the refusal... stop wasting your money and explain to madam that you need good travel history for now... forget about your uncle, he's not the reason for your refusal.
Start building your travel history with your family.

Hello all, what are the chances that a child of 1 year accompanying her grandma who is a permanent resident would be given a visa? The child's mother will be going for a course during that period and the father is presently in Canada?

It's important to travel at the date indicated on DS160 if you're attending a Conference,Seminar etc but if it's for visit.. it's flexible.

You can never tell but note that a visitor is not allowed to stay more than 6 months except in emergency cases

It could be from your form. What of your uncle's children? Don't they stay in the US?

Not possible besides stay away from agents. Some agents have gotten people banned for life.

Hello! Good day everyone. Been following this thread for some days now and I want to appreciate everyone who has chipped in, one way or the other and offered necessary assistance to the "prospective visitors" smiley

However, I need the most sincere advice anyone could give, on a particular issue. I am a 400l student here in Nigeria, expected month of graduation was December 2018, but due to the strike, I really do not know. I'm finishing with a good result so I have zero plans of absconding. I also own my cake store which was registered just few days back under the CAC. My "salary" from this business is just about 20-40k in a good month and I also have monthly allowance from my dad of N40k. Now, my aunties (one in UK, other in US-both citizens) have been suggesting I come visit for some time now but I just have never taken the suggestion seriously until recently.

However, I have no travel history but I also have no plans of staying more than 2 weeks max. I just want to visit and see my aunt and cousin(who's about same age with me, just turned 20). My dad would be sponsoring the trip(flight and maybe tiny shopping lol) but I would be staying with my aunt in the US for the duration of my visit. My dad earns about 600k monthly, has very good travel history (within and outside Africa), has worked with top companies, working with one at the moment, however my parents are separated, I also have two other siblings in school.
What do you think? Should I go on and apply to the US or try UK? Or just chill till I'm working and have my own stable income.

I'm not particular about visiting any other country(in case of building travel history) since I don't know anyone there and would probably be going alone. If yes to the above, the next puzzle is- my dad is also planning to apply for a visa to the US for a business trip. Should we apply together as in, "family" or are our visas different categories since we're both going for very different purposes?
Thank you very much, in anticipation for your wonderful opinions. *hoping the auspiciousness of the time posted, would bring in good comments grin*

Well I would say building your travelling history and getting a work would do u better..cos right now..visa issuance is as tight as it can be..
If u graduate, serve and get a work.. Along side building your travelling history with other countries then it's a great one. U have to prove ties..u probably still single until married, u still a student plus no travel history.
However, people still get u.s visa on a Virgin passport even plus been single..
So u can give it a shot since your dad is travelling as well..

Good luck on your application.
