Hi,

I travelled with virgin to LAX in 2016... Layover was 22 hours also.

I asked the UK Border officer that stamped me in (I had a valid UK visa) if he would have let me in without a valid visa and he said that if you have a valid ticket to the US,Canada or Australia you can enter the UK at the discretion of the Border Officer.

He added that more often than not you'd be allowed entry.

Oh thanks, this is hopeful.

Happy new year everyone in the house.
I thought I had sent his yesterday.
**Pls I would love to know if US embassy now charges $50 for notary services? When I patronized them Nov 2016, I don't think we paid o. A friend just drew my attention to it and I'd like a quick answer from those who have used the service recently.
Many thanks.

Hello House. Please, how does one get the consent form from the US Embassy in Nigeria?
Re: Give Birth In USA: Cost And Procedures Part 6 by Biodun1234: 9:27pm On Jan 03, 2018
Thanks mamaron and jullzz for your response. Am so grateful. I Will stay At The general area at Heathrow.

My visa is expiring in February 29 and I intend to travel January 30th for my missionary journey. I do not plan to renew my visa until after delivery when I return back to Nigeria. Kindly advice as i am of the view that I do not have to renew my visa now since my visa would still be valid as at the date of entry into US in January 30

This new year will bring us uncommon testimonies.
I had my princess on the 12th of Dec. 2017. I was so misinformed that I delayed the process in getting her international pas

I got there in time for the appointment and gave all the documents needed only to be told that the notary our DH sends to us is no longer valid as DH has to go to the US embassy in Nigeria to get the notary or be present at the US passport agency.

Apparently, this is a new rule that started yesterday 1 JAN., 2018. DH needs appointment date to get this notary and this is another delay for me as I need to get back to Nigeria soonest. Please, is this the same in your state. The social security is not needed when obtaining the international passport. Let's share this and talk about it.

debby516:
I arrived Houston on 28th December with my 2 children and mum via emirates. The queue was not too long because the CBP officers had more booths, unlike my experience in 2016. So we were directed to a booth with few people. B4 my turn, my baby fell and started crying, thereby causing unnecessary attraction. The older one too was pulling me that she wanted to use the toilet, but we culdnt go bac, just begged her to manage till we pass the CBP officer.

CBP officer was a black mid-age american, looks like Denzel Washington.

hands over 4 passports to him
CBP: How many of you?
Me: 4 of us, myself, 2 children and mum
CBP: What re u here for?
Me: To have my baby.
CBP: (was abit tense now and not smiling, not like he was even smiling b4) what do u mean by u re here to ve a baby?
Me: (now i knew i don enter ma) I applied for a medical visa and informed them at the embassy of my intention to have my baby here.
CBP: I didnot ask you what you told them at the embassy, i said why do you want to ve ur baby here?
Me: I had some medical issues with my 1st child and i didnt want a re-occurrence
CBP: What medical issue?
Me: Placenta previa (Note that i was not prepare for this, so was just saying wat readily came to mind)
CBP: what do u mean by that?
Me: Placenta lying low blabla (honestlym cant even remember if my explanation made sense)
CBP: And it cant be taking care of in ur country?
Me: I had option of coming to America for better medical care and i didnt want to take chances
CBP: Options? really?
Me: Yes
CBP: How much do u ve with u?
Me: 3000USD and about 6000USD in my bank account ( i think he wasnt really listening here, he faced his computer. Also, at some point he was trying to call someone, maybe they didnt pick his call. During the course of d interrogation also, he stood up facing me squarely.)
CBP: Scan ur 4 fingers, same for my mum.
He then said we should step aside.

He was on his computer for about 5 mins and he didnot attend to someone else. Later an officer came to chat him up and he left.

He then called me alone and resumed interrogation.
CBP: Do you have any evidence of your last payment?
Me: brought it out and gave to him.
CBP: How come the letter is dated Janaury and u delivered in November?
Me: I paid immediately after birth but i guess the internal workings of the hosp delayed the bills.
CBP: You only paid $2500 (he was reading the 1st page alone, dat letter issued by oakbend to the embassy- zero balance)
Me: No, i paid much more, thats just wat i paid to the hosp. You can flip thru to see the other payments made to other service providers.
CBP: How much:
Me: About $7000
CBP: (flipped thru and saw the lengthy account statement from oakbend dat shows several deductions and brings everything back to $2500) How come this sums were deducted and u paid $2500?
Me: I had a contract with the hosp, for cash paying patient. I was to pay $2500 for all.
CBP: (Went thru baby's American passport) How come i got baby's passport soo soon?
Me: It was based on the time i got the birth certificate at the county office.
CBP: I need to call my supervisor (he started typing again)

after 2 mins or so, he started stamping the passports.
CBP: Who stays in this address? (referring to the address on my landing card)
Me: An apartment i am leasing for our stay here.
CBP: Do u have an apartment number?
Me: Told him and he wrote it on the landing card.
CBP: Hands over our passports and said we can go but will keep the evidence of payments
Me: Okay

Thats how we carried ourselves quickly and left him o.

Hello my dear people, happy new year.

This new year will bring us uncommon testimonies.
I had my princess on the 12th of Dec. 2017. I was so misinformed that I delayed the process in getting her international passport. I got her social security a week after birth. I went to the Dallas passport Agency downtown to get my LO's passport first on the 30th of Dec., I was asked to schedule an appointment which I wasn't aware of the I got earliest appointment date for 2 Jan., 2018.

I got there in time for the appointment and gave all the documents needed only to be told that the notary our DH sends to us is no longer valid as DH has to go to the US embassy in Nigeria to get the notary or be present at the US passport agency.

Apparently, this is a new rule that started yesterday 1 JAN., 2018. DH needs appointment date to get this notary and this is another delay for me as I need to get back to Nigeria soonest. Please, is this the same in your state. The social security is not needed when obtaining the international passport. Let's share this and talk about it.


I wish all our expectant mothers safe delivery in Jesus name.

PS: DALLAS IS FREEZING @ -2/-5.


i didnot date the notary form DH signed. i know the form is valid for just 30days. i am also not going to downtown dallas, would just apply from the closest postal service to me , so they would deliver at my location.

thank God the sun is out today Dallas is @ 7C

yes you would. i hope the wait wont be too long for u.

try get a lounge to rest for the night, u would have to pay for it.

or you book to Newyork, which has a shorter layover. this would depend if you know anyone in Newyork

I also have a 22 hrs layover using virgin too to lax, ladeonas said she paid 50gbp for no1 lounge hotel at the airport so I plan to do so as well.

@julzz, i had a friend who had 22hrs layover as well. we went to virgin customer service in london to move the up, so we left together. try that too. the plane from london to LAX is usually empty. lots of us got to laydown on 3 seats at the same time in the plane.

all the best
Re: Give Birth In USA: Cost And Procedures Part 6 by ladeonas: 2:52am On Jan 04, 2018
OmoBendel24:


A new development: Irrespective of whether you have a UK visa or not, yourself and Biodun1234 if you decide to can actually go into the UK for a period less than 48hrs because your layover is more than 12hrs and you have an onward ticket to show alongside either your US, Canada, New Zealand or Australia visa. Just explain yourself appropriately and use the opportunity to see the UK.... Entry isn't 100% guaranteed though, but hardly will you be turned down.

thanks you for this info would try this next time

Please my people I need your clarification on the use of dropbox for my VISA renewal.
I got my VISA in February 2015 as a Tourist/Business and I travel with my family in December 2015. I thereafter got pregnant during 2016 and I apply the VISA to give birth in that same year.
I am in the process renewing my VISA via dropbox and I am confused whether I should include receipt invoices and other documents obtained during the birth process. What do I need to accompany my application via dropbox for VISA renewal.
I urgently need urgent assistance on the issues narrated above.

DHL won't even accept any extra document from you aside your passport and confirmation letter.
If you want the consular officer to see receipts and other documents, better schedule an interview.
