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).



Can I do it in any local government? Or I have to go to my state?

You should do it in the Local Government close to where you reside here in Lagos.

@saintrise,

You don't need a Priority Date for I-485.

K-1 doesn't have any Priority Date, unlike some other types of Visa categories.

Cheers!

Yes you can go ahead with the K1 Visa. I'm guessing those Visas were non-immigrant visas. You were probably denied the US visa's because you couldn't prove non-immigrant intent. But in K1 Visa, all you need to prove is that you truly love your fiancee and that you will both get married within 90 days on entry into the States. Also they need prove that your fiancee can take care of you financially in the States till you find your feet.

I prefer you ask your questions here as that was why this thread was created. You can edit out anything that's personal.

have you gone through the K1 visa, if so, how can one get a print out of the call history through WhatsApp? the call history should contain. the both numbers and duration of calls at any given moment. thank you

The requirement is to meet at least once within two years prior to filing the petition by the USC fiance(e).

The time together can hold anywhere but it's important to document with pictures and receipts of places visited together. Flight tickets and boarding passes is also good evidence.

Be careful with having a formal introduction though as that may be considered as being married which will disqualify the applicant from getting the K1 visa.

do you know how one can get a call history, which suppose to contain both numbers of you and your fiancee and duration of calls at any given moment, from WhatsApp?

Additional info on the K1 Visa.

'A K-1 visa is a visa issued to the fiancé or fiancée of a United States citizen to enter the United States.

A K-1 visa requires a foreigner to marry his or her U.S. citizen petitioner within 90 days of entry, or depart the United States. Once the couple marries, the foreign citizen can adjust status to become a lawful permanent resident of the United States (Green Card holder).

Although a K-1 visa is legally classified as a non-immigrant visa, it usually leads to important immigration benefits and is therefore often processed by the Immigrant Visa section of United States embassies and consulates worldwide.' (Wikipedia)

'K1 Visa Process

1. USCIS Filing: The United States citizen sponsor files the K1 visa petition with the USCIS by mailing the completed I-129F petition package along with a check to the Department of Homeland Security.

2. Notice of Action 1 (NOA1): Two to three weeks after mailing your petition, you will receive a notice of action (NOA1) indicating the USCIS has received your petition.

3. Notice of Action 2 (NOA2): Usually (currently), between 5 and 7 months after mailing your petition, you will receive a notice of action (NOA2) indicating the USCIS has approved, denied or requests additional evidence for your petition. If approved, you do nothing at this step. If you are denied, (end of story, marry your partner and file for a spousal visa). If you receive an RFE, you need to respond to it with the evidence requested.

4. NVC Phase: The service center that handled your petition forwards your case to the State Department’s NVC (National Visa Center). This will happen within two weeks of your approval. The NVC will run a security check on your fiance.

5. NVC to Embassy: If your fiance’s security check comes back clean, your approved K1 visa petition will be routed to the Bureau of Consular Affairs. The Bureau of Consular Affairs will send your file to the U.S. Embassy in your fiance’s country via DHL.

6. Embassy Letter: After receiving your visa petition, the U.S. Embassy (usually in the country of origin) sends the fiance a letter with instructions for scheduling the medical exam and interview.

7. Gather Embassy Documents: The U.S. Embassy will instruct the fiance to return some of the documents immediately. Other documents will be kept until the interview.

8. Medical Exam: The fiance must have a medical exam. The package sent to the fiance by the U.S. Embassy will explain how to schedule the medical exam.

9. Embassy Interview: The fiance must attend an interview at the U.S. Embassy. All applicants must bring their passport, including children of all ages. If children are joining on a K-2 visa, they must also attend the interview.

10. Visa Issued: If approved, there will usually be a wait of up to one week. The visa will be delivered via courier.

11. Travel to U.S.: The fiance has 6 months to use the visa to enter the United States. He or she will be given a package of documents by the U.S. Embassy which he or she will surrender at the Point of Entry (POE) into the United States.

12. Wedding: The petitioner must marry the alien fiance within 90 days of entry into the United States. If a wedding doesn’t take place within this time, the fiance must leave the United States. The 90 day clock starts on the date you enter the United States, which is normally stamped in your passport. The K1 visa beneficiary can only marry the person who submitted the petition. Eventually the alien must file an adjustment of status petition to receive the green card.' (RapidVisa)

you got them correctly. ease how does o e get a call history from WhatsApp to submit as evidence during interview?

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.

They won't send you a physical letter. They will send the Packet 3 to your email instead. Send them an email to confirm that they've received your casefile, they should respond within one week.
