She couldn't get his name. sorry.

I've gotten the letter from her but I am a bit confused about paying online. Must I select the private business option to make payment? I've tried searching for an explanatory guide on Nairaland but I can't find any.

Hello Everyone.


My friend gt contact with some doctors in Houston and they are asking for her to pay 200 dollars before they can give a letter she will take for interview.


Does a doctor need to accept her before she goes for interview, because the doctor says before he can accept her, she needs to pay 200 dollars for appointment.
Re: Give Birth In USA: Cost And Procedures Part 6 by MamaTuoyo: 9:48am On Dec 06

Hello everyone just got back from the states These people are not smiling at all I wonder what is happening even JFK that used to be a breeze has changed . Got in through JFK we were directed to the self profiling machine some of their officers were on ground to do the separation i.e those of us who had rice and beans passport ���� ( kids with dual citizenship). We were asked to stay on a particular queue come and see people Naija, cocoyi chinko etc. see drilling people were taken away for 2ndry inspection we spent over 1hr on that particular queue and we were not allowed to join another queue about 2 other flights came in after us and the same separation was done. When it got to our turn the man was tired and was getting ready to change shift. We handed over our passports With a frown on his face he removed the children's American passports and asked who is this we pointed at the half asleep child asked to see the second one we pointed he asked why they had a passport different from us the parents as if he doesn't know. We told him they were born in the US he nodded and asked if we had a return ticket we gave him and he glanced through it. He asked how much we had when we told him , for the first time he smiled stamped all our passports. We ran collected our luggages and out into the freezing cold in New York. God must surely deliver us from bad governance and heal our land so that this mass exodus can stop. See young, smart promising Nigerian youths on the streets of America doing menial jobs to keep body and soul together once again this early Momo I pray that God will heal our land and return our lost glory

I don't really understand your post.

1. Is this your first delivery in the united states?

2. If yes to (1), how much did you tell them that the vaginal delivery cost?

3. If no to (1), did you give birth to any of your children in the USA?

I think it's disheartening that the embassy would think that one would have recourse to public funds. It's really upsetting and I need someone in the house to confirm if this can be appealed because my wife was rejected on the same ground.

Her case:-

She had given birth to the first kid in 2017 in USA.

When she went to the Embassy today the conversation went like this:

VO :- What is the purpose of your visit to the US this time around?

Wife :- I would want to go and give birth like i did my first son.

VO :- Oh, so you have given birth before in the US?

Wife:- Yes, in 2017.

VO:- You didn't let us know about your intention to give birth in the US.

Wife:- I did at the point of Entry on my second visit to the US. I informed the immigration officers on duty that I had come in for 3 months to give birth.

VO :- Do you have your receipts to show payment?

Wife:- Yes, I have my zero balances for your perusal.

VO:- Do you have the Bills/receipts to show payments?

Wife:- Yes. (At this point, she had separated the bills from the zero balance and gave the VO the bills)

VO:- looks through and says, there is a heavy discount on these bills so it means you had recourse to public funds.

Wife:- No i didn't. I paid well over $8000+ as told me by the hospital and i made more than 50% of the payment before leaving for the US and the other payments after delivery, so there is no way I could have had recourse to public funds. It was all my money hence the zero balance.

VO:- The average amount of delivery in Texas is $15000 and if you paid $8000 then it means American Tax Payers have paid for your bills and for this reason, you are not eligible for this visa at this time.

Wife:- Una dey madt? (of course she didn't say this)

Wife:- But i didn't use any funds and I have all the zero balances to show that I made all the payments myself.

VO:- Thank you - slides the blue stupid paper!!!


Our intention:- We want to create another application after 3 working days and put a detailed message under the reason for denial and maybe go to Abuja and have the interview facing them directly based on such false accusations.

If you have input on this, please i'd be more than happy to hear it.

Best Regards.
Re: Give Birth In USA: Cost And Procedures Part 6 by Dawllar: 8:36pm On Dec 07
This is exactly what happened to me today. I doubt they are willing to issue visas at this time. There is an undeclared policy we have no clue about.

The VO mentioned struggling with her decision cos I paid all my bills. From my experience today, she didn't have any reason to deny me. She advised I have my baby and then reapply in 6months. I don't know how you reapplying immediately will work.
I sincerely wish you the very best

I am still trying to get a hang on it myself. I've sent an email with the following information

The Comptroller General
Nigeria Immigration Service
Nigeria Immigration Service Head Quarters
Abuja.

APPLICATION FOR VISA ON ARRIVAL

I wish to apply for Visa on Arrival for my infant son. His details are as stated below:

Name:

Passport number:

Address:

Date of Arrival:

Port of Entry:

Airline:

Please find required documents attached: His passport bio, my passport bio, hubby's passport bio, travel itinerary.



I've still not gotten any acknowledgement and this is the 2nd time I've sent this mail. I called and they said I still have plenty time but the lack of mail acknowledgement troubling. Does it take up to 24hrs to get an acknowledgement?


It takes more than 48 hrs before u get a response. Pls be patient.

Re: Give Birth In USA: Cost And Procedures Part 6 by Ebony84: 10:55pm On Dec 07
I'm in Boston too.. leaving next week.

Birth certificate and SS should have been done at the hospital. Normally ready for collection at Boston City hall in 2weeks from date of application. SSN is sent out by mail within 3weeks.

For the US passport, you can apply once you get your consent form and birth certificate. Consent form is form DS-3053 printable from the US passport website. Hubby would take the unsigned form to the US embassy for notarization(make sure he fills your name as it is on your passport). He can book appointment on US embassy Nigeria website..you can Google 'notarization US embassy Nigeria'

He will need to send you the original copy to apply for US passport. DHL takes about 4days to arrive in Boston. My hubby paid 23k to send. You can book appointment to apply at Boston passport agency if your ticket date is within 2weeks or you need a visa within 4wks. Just tell them you fall in that category, they don't need to know about voa. Make sure you go with copy of your ticket. Check US passport website for detailed list of documents.

My LO's passport was ready in 2days.

As for medical bills..just prepare yourself. Boston is not cheap but if you look at the bill and it doesn't look right,don't be afraid to ask billing for review.

All the best!
