This is what mine shows. Under additional work experience/ education/ training

@Legit, @Sharpman, @Capello and other contributors....

I was revisiting some older posts and saw that people were able to update their profiles with work experience and other information. I did not see anything relating to this when I logged into CGI portal. Do people have different views on the portal?

I created my profile in 2016 when i applied for a B1 visa. so when I was trying to log on to traveldocs for this k1 application, I saw the instruction that returning users should not create a new account but to use their old one, which is what I used. I am only able to edit Passport details, contact details and mailing address.

Did i Miss something?

Please advise.

After two weeks of my initial email to LagosIV with no reply, I sent them a reminder in the early working hours of today and barely two hours later, they replied me.

However, the reply is the same to what was shared in here.

Hi all, I hope everyone’s day was smooth. This is for those that are already in and for those that would be coming in shortly, please be aware of your environments, there have been 4 different shootings since Friday. The political climate is kinda hot at the moment. Please Be aware of your environment, crowds even in malls. A friend just texted me now that 4 people were shot dead in front of his house. Keep your guard up and be instinctively aware. God’s protection will be over us(amen). Thank you

hello guys,

I am a Nigerian studying in Korea and currently planning for a K1 visa with my fiance.
I have read the requirements and so far, they appear feasible...however, my problem is the issue of a police certificate.

I can get one from Korea here but considering that I am a Nigerian, I could be needing one from Nigeria.

is there a way around this? must I provide the Nigerian certificate?
can one get it online? can one get it for someone?

flying down to Nigeria would be a huge expense on me. any help/suggestions would be appreciated

i think some people feel this forum is for some kind of joke. u told the embassy u were married and then u now want to file
for k1 visa? if they discover u lied before, with the anger those guys operate this days,it might be a life ban.
lets be sincere so we dont jeopadize the chances of those who really need a visa for genunie purposes. if u are married,then
clear the road or divorce and remarry with the right documents. i hope we know this thread is open so COs can read
and get some clues to what to expect.

This is one very reliable method of getting the police report. The form can even be downloaded online.

The link I was talking about is https://www.wikiprocedure.com/index.php/Nigeria_-_Obtain_police_clearance_certificate

There is a website called getway.ng that helps with it as well. I dont know how genuine they are But they do look genuine.

If the person concerned is based abroad and will go for his or her interview abroad then its far better and cheaper to do the report online instead of spending money traveling to and fro Nigeria. But if the person's visa interview is in Nigeria, then it's better to get the police report when he or she gets back to Nigeria. It takes less than 4 hrs to get the report at Alagbon.

@nkel08,

Sorry about the denial. But unfortunately, there's nothing you can do at this time.

There's no room for Appeal with K-1 Visa denials.

The best next step will be to file for a Spousal Visa.

Regards.

We’ve still not gotten a reply from the embassy, for over 2 weeks now. And our petition expires last week. Though I got a date before it expired. What do we do please? Will this affect my interview? I’m so worried ����

@Glorioussugar,

Send them another soft reminder via email.

You might also want to call them as well and let them know your current situation.

You don't need to worry, your petition is automatically extended since you have booked your interview appointment before the expired date.

See the attached message my fiancee got from embassy when he wrote the embassy to extend my petition because we couldn't get any date before the expiration date.

Bro, Yes I have. So, I scheduled with my old DS-160 form initially and later realized that I had to fill a new DS-160 form. I filled a new one and mailed traveldocs. It was rectified within the hour. they've linked the new one to my appointment date. So, I'm golden.

I'm thinking of last week in December for the medicals. Do we have to call them to book a date in advance? I've heard varying opinions on here.

By the way, Please does anyone know how we get the packet 4 (or is it packet 3?). Do we get this via regular mail or email?

That is good, I think given that we have enough time, we should place a call to make inquiries. I will update you on how it goes since I’ll be going there before you.
Wishing you best of luck.

The response to your email was in 2018 but it seems things are slightly different now. Attached is the email I received from the embassy on Monday. Be as it may, we still hope for the best.
