Hey Texans in the house, another shooting again. Please stay safe and always be wary of your surroundings. God will always keep us safe, Amen!

@Drenimarcus,

@saintrise,

You don't need to do a new medical exam. You only need to submit a copy of your DS-3025.

You can also use the same Affidavit of Support docs, especially if the financial circumstances of your partner hasn't changed, since you did your K-1 process.

Cheers!

Similar question I want to ask.

I have a master's degree in radiation and Health Physics. Can I work with it in the US.

Or I will have to start all over again from undergraduate level?

In addition to what select500 said, you'll need to fill a new form (i864) for your affidavit of support. However you will use the same documents you used to fill the form i134. You may also need to provide some additional documents whem filling the form i864 if there has been some changes in your fiancee revenue/tax situation (eg if your fiancee has a new job or if she has been promoted in her new job or if she has filed new tax with the IRS, etc.)

@Paccus and @Molybdenum0012, they usually don't recognise our degrees. But I dont recommend starting afresh. You can do a masters or doctoral degree that builds on the degree you have. You'll need to evaluate your degree using WES or ECE. Those organizations help to convert your degree to a US equivalent so that you can use the conversion to either search for a job or do a master's or doctorate degree.

Are you on visajourney? If no, get on there, type and search for "letter of intent sample" in the search box. Basically you can find a whole world about immigration visa process with that tiny little box. It's crazy.

@Glorioussugar,

Yes, you can take your old passport if you wish.

You don't need a spinsterhood certificate for your interview. All the other evidences you have, should be enough proof to show that you are not yet married.

Have you gotten an interview date now?

Cheers!

There is a ceac website where you can track your casefile. I had posted it here, I can't remember the website but you can check my previous posts for it. Once it says READY then you are ready to go. You'll also have to send an email to the Embassy. You can schedule your interview once you get the Packet 3 from the Embassy.

You can get it from your local government or from Ikoyi Registry. You can also swear an affidavit with a High Court. I did mine in the Local Government. Went there myself to make sure I wasn't given a fake. Paid 10,000 naira. Learnt doing it at the Ikoyi Marriage Registry is much more expensive (around 25,000 naira or thereabout).

But just as Select500 said, its not compulsory to get it for the Embassy interview as they may not ask for it. I got my bacherlood certificate at the very early stage and submitted a copy along with the i129F document. I took the original with me to the interview but it wasn't asked for at all during the interview. However if you have time on your hands then you can go get it (might take up to 2 weeks for it to be ready).
