Okay, that highlighted part also got me confused too and that's why I asked her why he wasn't present for the introduction?


Laugh, how will they think it's an arrange introduction? Is it not the same introduction pictures he used in filing for the K1 over there to proof for the bona-fide relationship.

He owns a company in aviation,he was contacted by United Nation to give quotations of some projects thats why he wasn't around.

Good morning, don’t over work yourself okay? You got this. Being approved by USCIS and at the embassy is 2 different things. Uscis Approves petition, embassy grants visa. So far you know your fiancé well, you good to go. You got this

can one pay for visa without getting a case number from NVC?

if yes,what then is the purpose of the case number?

or at what stage of the visa journey does one use it?
You already have a case number. If you don't know it, ask your fiancee who is a US citizen to call the NVC guys to get it. However, one can make payments even if one hasn't gotten a case number as long as he doesn't submit the DS-160 form.

did they change that after you had completed the appointment booking?

where you sent a new appointment confirmation after the change?
Yes, they changed it for me after I had completed the appointment booking. They didn't change my appointment date. I don't think they sent me an appointment confirmation, but you can always print a new appointment confirmation by yourself. There's even a place on your ustraveldoc profile where you can send your confirmation to your email.

The USCIS don't grant visa, they only approve that the application should be sent to the embassy for consideration. The Embassy has the final say on granting the Visa and not USCIS.

That been said, just relax. There's no cause to panic. Since you had submitted the introduction pictures to the USCIS guys, it means the Embassy guys will see it too. My advice is that you get documentation ready to show you guys are not yet married (get your intent to marry letter which should say you guys are still single and intend to get married after securing the K1 Visa,
also get a bacherlood or spinster certificate and affidavit, if possible) should the Consular Officer decide to probe you on this. But if the Consular Officer is silent on it, then be silent on it too. You can go with th introduction pictures but don't present it unless requested to do so. And be ready to defend it.

Some Consular Officers tend to give trouble with Introduction Ceremonies. But the fact remains that Introduction is not marriage. This is because no bride price was paid and no traditional wedding was done. So don't worry. As long as you guys love each other, you guys will overcome.

The Local Government guys give. Also the Ikoyi Marriage Registry gives as well. That of Ikoyi is more expensive. Both are valid although they have their pros and cons.

@ legitbachrlor, djfrancis,sharpman1 and nextlevel,
Please guys my case is a different one. I am confused when asked how many children one have and how many children are travellinf with you in the DS160 form?

I had one boy before meeting my finance who is a K2 applicant.

But recently I had twins (2 baby boys) for my US citizen.

My question is, do I need to state also the twins in my D'S 160 form where questions about how many children where asked?

Note: my twins has been issued their US Passport.

Do I need to still include them in my DS 160 form?

Just fill it as it is. It all depends on the question. If they ask you to state how many children you have then you do so. But if they ask which children are seeking the K2 Visa then you provide those who are seeking K2.

If you are still confused, you can send us a screenshot so we can assist the much we can.

You need a graphic software and a good big size photo, Samsung phone is ok, download your photo to your computer and open it with Paint, Photoshop or any other software for images which allows you to change the size of the picture. First apply or check it has the highest resolution, 300 dpi, then cut off the picture to medium size the way the head is on the center, download the size guides picture from the US application site, have 2 pictures, Guides and the real photo, reduce the size of the photo (photo already cut with the head in the center) and make photo fitting to the Guide size almost precise, it should be still bigger size than the application is asking. Check the resolution and size again, some software let you cut off the background and put the white background, white background is better. Do not alter the face / head photo enhancing it digitally, keep it real as US gov. likes it. Now you being sure it has a good resolution, size the photo to what you need for application, save it and apply, you will not to have problems. You may work on layers to do the size changes what I explained or ask a digital graphic artist to do it but be careful, do NOT change or apply filters to the face, it will be rejected.

Believe me, I did it exactly as I explain applying for K1 visa, it works very well

Do I require the services of an agent to fill the ds160 form or can I do it myself considering the fact that I have to sign electronically?
Re: USA Fiancee (K1) Visa Thread by pipz(m): 3:22pm On Jan 25
My mum was denied a visa last year as we were not ready to invite her then and I’d not yet been approved of my GC. My cousin invited her and the consulate denied her stating “why isn’t your son inviting you” as my cousin had filled on the DS 160 that she had a son in the US. Fast forward to late last year, we decided it’s time we invite her as we now have a baby. People advised us my wife be the one to invite her since I’m yet to be approved GC, so we decided to start processing another appointment for her but could only secure a March 2019 date for appointment. Alas, I was granted a GC without being asked any question at the interview, coming from a K1 candidate. My question now is should I go back and edit and resubmit the DS 160 so to indicate I’m the one inviting her or just leave it to be my wife inviting. Thanks and I wish everyone a blissful 2019
