Thanks. Was able to schedule finally. However, I have a major challenge. I noticed the DS-160 form number on the scheduled interview page is the one I used for my B1/B2 Visa application. I looked for how to change the DS-160 form number to the current one I'm using for the K1 Visa. I even had to cancel my appointment and reschedule but still didn't succeed. Please what do I do?
what you need to do is to update your ds160 code on your profile and reprint your appointment confirmation slip. you don't have to cancel your appointment. please note I know it works for B1 and F1 but I think it will work for K1 too

Good Afternoon everyone....Im a Nigerian but live in Senegal...i reduced my age to 22 years in 2016 when i did my international passport with the intention to travel for europe as a footballer unfortunately it didnt work out...last year i moved to Senegal been talking to this woman in U.S shes 40 years and we planning on getting married in Senegal but she insist she visit and then file for K1 visa then we can marry in U.S there after...she has book her ticket alrealdy. My problem now is the Age difference is the gap not too much because i told her im 37, now how can i convince her my real age wish is 30 since 1996 its in my passport which is 24years now. (My real age the gap is 10 years my passport age the gap is 16 years....is it possible to change my age in the passport?

Please any advice ..what should i do?
the number one rule about online dating is sincerity at least say lies you can defend. I hope this doesn't rule your chances. the only option you have is to go to immigration head office in Abuja and correct your age. I hope you have not used that passport to apply to either US or Canada? if you have I say you forget about changing it and stick with what is on your passport. misrepresentation is a serious offence especially with the US embassy

It doesn't work for K1 Visa. I checked everywhere. Even went to the update profile section, no place to change or type in one's DS 160 number. That was why I cancelled my appointment to see if it will be possible after cancellation but still not possible.

Was finally able to change my DS-160 number to reflect what's on my confirmation page.

Did it after sending a mail to ustraveldocs support email. They effected the change within seconds!

Please anyone who has scheduled an interview for the K1 should help here.

My interview is this month but I don't have any experience with change of DS 160 number. Glad to know he has fixed it

Good morning Guys,

I have been contacted by the embassy concerning my K1 Visa application and was told to make payments, fill My DS-160 form and then schedule my interview date.

I have done all except scheduling interview date. Every time I go the ustraveldoc site to schedule an interview, it tells me there is no available appointment date. What could be the problem? Should I still wait or did I do something wrong?

How I wish I had seen this earlier. You don't need to inform the US consulate to book your interview in Nigeria. Once you get your NVC number you book appointment.

Re: USA Fiancee (K1) Visa Thread by djfrancis: 4:52pm On Nov 01
LegitBachelor:
Exactly.

To add to what you just said. Even though it's not explicitly stated that you submit evidence of ties to Nigeria, it's advisable you present such if you have any. It's not a crime to provide more evidence than required.

There are many cases of a beneficiary who is not working and has no financial records but was granted the K1 Visa. However there have been cases of refusal or administrative processing due to that. Imagine a scenario where the VO has little doubts of the petitioner being financially buoyant enough and also have little doubts about their true love for each other. Don't you think having strong ties to Nigeria will convince the VO that the beneficiary truly loves the petitioner and is willing to leave his country where he is doing well to be with his fiancee? Don't you also think that that strong tie is a form of assurance for the VO that the beneficiary would return back to Nigeria in case he breaks up with his fiancee before the 90days?

In summary, it's not a must the beneficiary must be working or must have a bank account for him to be granted a K1 Visa. It's not also a compulsory requirement to submit any documents proving such. But if one has a bank account with lots of transactions in it (even if the account is in the red) or is working, I advice he comes with evidence proving such. After all he submitted a DS-160 Non-immigration Form during his application for K1 Visa and in the form he provided info on his place of work and how much he earns on a monthly basis. It's not a crime if he goes with those documents as evidence to backup what he filled in on that non-immigrant form.

I understand your POV. But I think it's a bit too complicated. Just bring what the consulate requests. And from what I have seen on the checklist, no employment info is needed. There are already a lot to carry. Follow the checklist to avoid complications

So no need waiting for the consulate. That's a good one.

Meanwhile, how does one know the steps to take if the consulate does not send the instructions?

Yes, no need to wait for the consulate. The information the consulate sends is available online. Somebody advised joining visa journey which is absolutely correct. I found help there after searching NL for a longtime without help

Really? Well, I have heard a lot of people say this. But I was scared as I have read many places on the Consulate website where it is said not to schedule interview date until told to do so.

Anyways, it didn't take long after I got my NVC number before I was contacted by US Consulate, say one week.

Immediately I got my NVC number I mailed the Consulate and they said they don't have my casefile yet. But I later realized that I can even track the movement of my casefile from NVC. So I checked online and it says my casefile is in transit. This confirmed what the Consulate said earlier.

After a few days, I checked online and realised that my case has been received by the Consulate. So I mailed the Consulate again and this time they responded by directing me to proceed with payments and filing of the DS-160 form and scheduling of interview date.

So that was my journey smiley

Hello djfrancis & LegitBachelor,

How long did it take before you got your NVC Number from the National Visa Center? ( i.e. After receiving your Notice of Action Letter:I-797)

Thanks.

Mine took 3weeks. NVC sends out the cases to their respective embassies every two weeks.

The cases must be in their possession first. So you have to call USCIS very early or close to the close of work to know if your case has been sent to NVC after you have received NOA 2.
