@LegitBachelor, am a lady, am not always comfortable with formal clothes and I dnt want to wear something I will not be comfortable with it. Can I wear smart casual wear? Or what is your opinion?
Sure. As long as you don't look irresponsible in your dressing.

Unfortunately there's no Spouse Thread on Nairaland. Perhaps you could create one just like the way I did for Fiance Visa Thread.

Please guys I need your urgent help!. I have a girlfriend (US citizen) in the states and she's visiting Nigeria for the first time for7 days. This is actually our first meeting and we intend to get her engaged. After that she returns to file for the fiance visa. Please do you think I might have a hard time at the embassy regarding we haven't had so much FaceTime together? Please guys advice me.
Thanks.

It depends, stuffs like massive age difference, difference in religion are red flags the embassy looks for. For me, 7 days is too short, ensure enough FaceTime and take lots of pictures with your friends and family if possible. What the embassy looks for is a bonafide relationship. All the best and good luck

Like I said, the embassy checks or looks for red flags in every relationship. From my experience, she should spend more time or come back again on a second visit to strengthen your case. Think about it, you met someone for 7 days and you get enagaged and file. My advice is, she should wait before filing, come back for a second visit or file and come back for a second visit.

For her to stay for seven days is not too bad.
How long have you guys been communicating before now? You need to save all those Chat Logs and FaceTime you have both done.
There some people that got their Fiancee Visa with just one visit. Some cannot visit more than 1 time due to work and school schedules. But as long as your relationship is genuine, you should be good to go.
Also, remember not to do any official ceremony when she visits, if you are going to file for the K-1 Visa.
Cheers!

In addition to Facebook, you can also communicate via WhatsApp ( both texts and calls) and also call via your normal phone numbers, once in a while.

Then when you meet physically, take pictures together at different locations and keep all receipts from travels(boarding pass), restaurants and lodging.

Cheers!

Hello legitbachelor, sharpman1, djfrancis and all

Please we received this email below from NVC since 26th Dec,2018 and have not heard from Lagos embassy since then.

1. What step should I take?

Please what should I do, I need advise.

Thank you

The email must have the beneficiary name

And you need to write them as soon as possible if they have received your file because you need to schedule your appointment before your expiring date and appointment days don't open always on their dashboard. My own transfer from NVC only takes 1week.

You can fill the DS-160 form now but don't submit yet. Also you can go to gtbank and pay for the K1 Visa and hold on to the receipt. You can also create a profile at ustraveldocs.com/ng. Make sure you use a valid email address.

Once the Embassy confirms receipt of your casefile, you can then quickly submit your form and then fill in your receipt number and other K1application details on your ustraveldoc profile.

The next step is to schedule an appointment. If you can't, no cause for alarm. Just keep checking your profile page until dates pop up.

PS: Just as nextlevel2222 adviced, you guys should email the embassy requesting to confirm if they've received your casefile. It takes 5 to 6 days for them to respond. If you guys don't email them, you might not know on time when you can proceed.
