Please stop misinforming this guy.

You can apply with your soon to expire passport, but you need a passport with a minimum of 6 months validity to travel to the US.

If a Visa is issued on your old passport, the Visa will still be valid until it eventually expires. You will only need to carry the new one along with it.

Many thanks to the gurus on this thread, finally was able to complete reading from part 1, part 2 and on part 3 of this thread today. And I must say it's really overwhelming. You guys really rock.

Please I need you guys to assist me on the issues I'm having right now.

Before I stumbled on the first part of this thread three months ago, I have paid an 'agent' agent of credibility destruction for USA processing visa and documentations with my valid documents. After I read over 150 pages on part 1 and discovered I can do it on my own I immediately called the agent on the excuse of work tight schedules to purse every processing though he claimed to have paid my visa fee B1B2 cos I've already paid him sum of ₦110k.

Fast forward to last week since I'm well equipped on this great forum, I called and met with him to let him know I am no longer interested in traveling again and that he should only hand over the visa application bank slip to me and he shouldn't worry about the excess I've paid him. His countenance changed and was so furious but control himself cos I didn't ask him to give me the balance after payment of visa fee.

What he handed over to me was only login to ds-160 form with the security questions and answers on: 1} ds-160 number. 2} first 5 letters of my surname. 3} date of birth and 4} what city did you meet your spouse. I logged in into my ds-160 form with those informations he provided but found out that the agent just filled in lies contrary to my true informations I gave him outrighly but the form is yet to be completed and submit.

Now my questions.
1} Please is it possible for me to continue or ignore the filled ds-160 form and start a new one since it has not be submitted? If not possible how can I changed the ds-form security questions and answers so that the agent won't have access to it?

2} since he refused to release my bank slip to me and also claimed he already booked an appointment for me for Dec 7th. Can I ignore him with it and start afresh on my own paying for another visa application fee? Since I don't care about the lost money to him again to save my credibility from stain.

Lastly is it possible one booked appointment before submission of ds-form as the agent claimed

Please I need candid advice and opinions from the gurus. I really want to abide by the teachings on this forum to stand by the truth and the truth alone. But my worries are if this agent won't go ahead and manipulate my informations at my back. I don't care about the money I've wasted. What I want now is to protect my integrity not to start looking for ways to amend or redeem it later in the name of confession.

Thanks.

1. Yes, you can fill another ds-160 form and edit the one in your appointment profile (You also need a login details for your appointment profile).
2. You need the GTB Receipt printout as its one of the documents required for your interview. You could pay a new visa fee but there would be a clash of profile details as your passport number has already been used to create this current profile.
3. Yes, an appointment can be scheduled before the ds-160 form is submitted.

Please note: The security questions the agent might have used in the ds-160 form has no negative effect to your application, rather its an answer he/she could easily remember.
Wish you all the best

(2) I don't believe the agent has paid your visa fee. Otherwise, he/she would have easily handed the payment confirmation to you. What the agent handed to you could be done without payment of visa fee. Therefore, prepare to pay another visa fee.
(3) Yes. It is possible to book appointment without submission of application form.
Lastly, pls be careful with agents. Many of them are out there to dupe innocent applicants.

First, know the EXACT and GENUINE reason you want to travel to the USA. This will determine the visa category you will apply for.

Next, go to GTB and pay for the category of Visa you wish to apply for, i.e; Its N64,000 for Business & Tourist Visa (B) category.

Fill in your DS- form with accurate and truthful information, copy the application number and schedule an appointment with the same application number and input your receipt number.

Arrange all the necessary documents. Await your interview date and pray

If your parents bear same names, then I believe it should be okay as your maiden name would be same as her current surname.

If not, kindly separate the applications.

I believe there is a question in the DS-160 form which asks if you had a lost or stolen passport in the page 3 i think. And also, you can add countries you have been to previously in your application.

You're always on point LadyGuinivere. Thanks for the quick response. How would I verify from the embassy if I put a call through since I don't have the login details he the agent used? What happens if I go ahead and pay for another visa fee since I don't know if he truly paid before. Will the clash of informations with passport number not carry any penalties?

I sensed reality in what you said that he hasn't pay for the visa fee as he took him nothing to give me the details since I'm not asking him to pay me back the excess I ignorantly gave to him. KINDLY ADVISE ON CLASH OF INFORMATIONS IF PARADVENTURE HE PAID AND I ALSO GO AHEAD AND PAY ON SAME PASSPORT NUMBER. WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES?

When one is not informed then that person MUST be totally deformed. No be by BTech. Thousands mumu like me are still undergoing same situations as mine at the moment cos they lack crucial informations like this. And zilch can be done to change their mindset cos they the educated ones even believed visa processing can only be done by agents. As big as the company as I work is, many folks declined that I can't process visa without involving an agent. Just imagine! I'm glad I know the truth now and it is setting me free before I'll looking for ways to confess. My own case still better Na only money I loose...I no loose credibility and because of that God win grin grin

Thanks guys. Please don't let people discouraged you from helping Nigerians. I dey enjoy the way you lash some people here with answers.

Feel free to apply with her, but please do not try to claim she is your child. Misrepresentation of any kind is bad and can lead to a lifetime ineligibility. This is doubly so if the misrepresentation is about a family relationship with a child. You don't want to appear to be a child smuggler.

Well then, if you wish to go ahead with a new payment, do so. Create a new account and fill in your details including your passport number, names et al.
If an error occur when trying to update your profile such as "This passport number is associated with another profile", put a call to the US Embassy lagos or abuja and they would assist you with moving your details into the new profile.

I highly doubt if a VO would ask you about any form of landed properties. All they are interested in are the information you have provided in your DS-160 form. Its entirely upto the VO's discretion to issue you the Visa or not depending on your response during the interview. If they aint satisfied, they would deny you.

Before I stumbled on the first part of this thread three months ago, I have paid an 'agent' agent of credibility destruction for USA processing visa and documentations with my valid documents. After I read over 150 pages on part 1 and discovered I can do it on my own I immediately called the agent on the excuse of work tight schedules to purse every processing though he claimed to have paid my visa fee B1B2 cos I've already paid him sum of ₦110k.

His countenance changed and was so furious but control himself cos I didn't ask him to give me the balance after payment of visa fee.

What he handed over to me was only login to ds-160 form with the security questions and answers on: 1} ds-160 number. 2} first 5 letters of my surname. 3} date of birth and 4} what city did you meet your spouse. I logged in into my ds-160 form with those informations he provided but found out that the agent just filled in lies contrary to my true informations I gave him outrighly but the form is yet to be completed and submit.

Now my questions.
1} Please is it possible for me to continue or ignore the filled ds-160 form and start a new one since it has not be submitted? If not possible how can I changed the ds-form security questions and answers so that the agent won't have access to it?

2} since he refused to release my bank slip to me and also claimed he already booked an appointment for me for Dec 7th. Can I ignore him with it and start afresh on my own paying for another visa application fee? Since I don't care about the lost money to him again to save my credibility from stain.

Lastly is it possible one booked appointment before submission of ds-form as the agent claimed

Please I need candid advice and opinions from the gurus. I really want to abide by the teachings on this forum to stand by the truth and the truth alone. But my worries are if this agent won't go ahead and manipulate my informations at my back. I don't care about the money I've wasted.

The problem right now is this...
You won't be able to access your appointment page/profile but to get rid of the agent I will advice you to call the embassy and explain the situation to them and you will need to provide a new email address.... All this shouldn't be more than 3-4 days.

A plot of land is not a tie... A ties is what will make you come back to Nigeria after visiting U.S

Re: USA Visit Visa Part 3 by Kajolplus: 10:00pm On Oct 22, 2017
Obasa,
Let us ASSUME your agent PAID, BOOKED appointment and fill DS form WITHOUT submission.
Also, let us ASSUME you have RE-PAID another visa fee and you want to use it to start afresh. There is no cause for alarm IF you encouter (only when u want to book appointment) CLASH OF INFORMATION, you av no option than to contact embassy by email (support-nigeria@ustraveldocs.com). I can assure you, they would sort it out (though prepare a cogent reason for your case because most Nigerian applicants are seen as fraudsters).
