@LegitBachelor, can we let @innken be? Since he’s not disposed to share his experience. I’m sure that won’t cause hoarding of information that could of benefit to him.

Regards!
He never said he's not disposed to sharing his experience. Or did he?

Baba anyone who doesn’t wanna share their experience or transcripts should hold to them. We are all here to learn and help each other. It is well.

Either he doesn't read past thread post to see the demand of him or he's just a d*ck. I'll go with the later.

Take it easy bro. Let's mind our language wink. I want to believe he is not against posting his interview experience. Perhaps he's waiting for the right moment or maybe he forgot. But even if he doesn't want to post his interview experience, that's fine. It's not compulsory.

Man was just upset I guess. It is not mandatory but experiences will guide those who do have up coming interviews. Being on VJ 24/7 and here helped a lot. Like I said, it is well. Trust your day went well?

I'm sure if other people didn't put up their experiences whether here or whatever forum he uses, he would have passed through a very very difficult process to get a visa to be with his loved one. This journey is hard and everyone needs as much help they can get. Trust me, If i want him to post something, it's mostly for others. visajourney and the likes were not so easy to find, but nairaland is always our first call when we need something.

Good Morning everyone, please can I go ahead to schedule appointment for my interview without being contacted by the embassy yet, though NVC said they have sent the document to the embassy.
But time is running out, I need to be able to get a date this month, is there a way around it?
Thanks in advance.
Re: USA Fiancee (K1) Visa Thread by kunlelikeme: 3:21pm On Aug 07
I have been notified that my case has been approved and they will be sending the approval to my fiance.Please what are the next things to do sir?
I heard about Bachelorhood certificate,police report and also I lost my birth certificate long time ago.
Is there any possibilities of getting these things from abroad as I currently live in Germany?
Also my application took exactly 3months.

3 months? That was pretty fast. Does that mean you submitted your petition in April or May?

Have you gotten your casenumber? You can track your case file using this link: https://ceac.state.gov/CEACStatTracker

If it says READY. Then you can proceed with scheduling an appointment. I however advice you also do an email to the Embassy requesting that they send you your Packet.

Congrats. I'm so happy for you.

After approval, they will send your casefile to NVC who will then forward your case to the appropriate embassy. In your case, it might be sent to the US Embassy in Germany if you are resident there.

I advice your fiance call the NVC after a week of receiving the NOA2 to update them with certain info (such as phone numbers, email address, etc). You can also click on page 47 of this thread for some additional info on this.

When the NVC sends your casefile to the embassy, you will then fill the DS-160 form and schedule an appointment with the embassy for a K1 visa interview.

You will need those documents you mentioned (and more) during the interview. For Police Report, you'll need Police Report from Nigeria and Germany and any other country you've resided for up to 6 months. Someone you trust in Nigeria can help you get Police Report. The person can also help you get the NPC Birth Certificate. Bachelorhood Certificate is not compulsory. It only helps strengthen your case in the initial petition which you have already scaled through.

Update on my Texas Drivers License

I went to renew my Drivers License and it went well. My license wasnt renewed at the spot because I don't have greencard or workpermit. However they requested for my NOA1 for the pending AOS application and said they'll get back to me in a weeks time.

So what they will do is verify my documents and if okay will send me a mail confirming my successful verification. Then I will use that mail when going to the Drivers License office to get a new License. It should be valid for one year. Will update you guys.
More update.

My documents have been verified and it came out positive. I now have a Drivers License thats valid till October next year (one year and 2 months validity). Hopefully My greencard will be out before this license expires so that I will get a 6 year validity on next renewal. smiley

please should I make payment for an immigrant visa or a non immigrant visa?
I'm asking because in letter NVC sent, they said, thank you for your patience in the immigrant visa process ( could that be a mistake?)

Also, when I tracked the application like you advised, it said your case is in transit to the consular section Your interview date was provided by the National Visa Centre, but we didn't get any interview date sent.

thanks in anticipation of your response.

No it's not a mistake. K1 visa has both immigrant and non-immigrant features. It starts off as non-immigrant and ends as immigrant visa during processing. Its confusing to me sometimes but its fine.

Regarding Payment, just go to GTBank and tell them you are paying for K Visa.

Yeah, the NVC schedules interview for those who are doing Spousal Visa or Family Based Visa. But Fiancee Visa is not scheduled by NVC but by the applicant using the ustraveldoc portal at the appropriate time. Once the tracking site says READY you can go ahead and make payments, fill the DS160 form and schedule an appointment. Also send an email to the Embassy informing them of your case so they can confirm receipt of your casefile and send you the Packet.

Wow, thank you so much for the swift response, i just checked again and the tracking site said ready.
I'm kinda still confused though. This is the what the tracking site says.


Your case is ready for your interview when scheduled at the U.S. Consular section. If you have already scheduled an appointment for an interview, please prepare your documents as directed in your appointment letter and appear at the consulate on the appointed date and time. Otherwise, please wait until you have been notified of your interview appointment. Additional information about how Immigrant Visa interview appointments are scheduled can be found at: http://nvc.state.gov/interview 

For more information, please visit TRAVEL.STATE.GOV.

What do they mean by, wait until notified of interview appointment if I have not scheduled yet?


I really need to get an interview date for this month!

Thanks for always.

@abisolaarshow, now that it says READY, you should do a mail to the US Embassy (LagosIV@state.gov) and ask for update on your casefile so you can schedule your appointment. You'll have to provide info such full names, date of birth, case number, phone numbers, passport number. They will respond in a weeks time. Some people wait till they get a go ahead from the US Embassy before scheduling while others just go ahead to schedule after getting the READY message on the tracking site. Whichever is fine.

Since you want to get the interview this month, you can go ahead and schedule after making the necessary payments and filling the form. Notw however that you must choose a date 3 weeks from now so that you can do your medicals. This is because Medical report takes a minimum of 2 weeks for it to be out and you can't go for your visa interview without it.

Good evening. Yes my fiancee did but the auto answering voice said to call back due to no available staff to talk with her, adding that they were unto other customers. Tried again it was the same. She called a bit late tho so it was expected. Funny thing, the call kept disconnecting after saying all that. Tomorrow will be right as they open for business. Did you get to reach them?

@legitbachelor , I'm here again o. Really need this info, been surfing the thread without much luck.
I would like to go for the medical report next week, but the appointment letter they requested for, is it just the one I'll print after filing out the ds-160 form or I'll need to wait for a letter from the embassy?

Thanks alot.
Re: USA Fiancee (K1) Visa Thread by LegitBachelor: 1:09am On Aug 09
@abisolaarshow you'll need the interview confirmation printout and the email from NVC (it should have your casenumber as they will need it). You don't need the letter from Embassy.
