It's similar to my case . The passport photo I uploaded was rejected online so on the day of my appointment I took 4 copies of passport photograph to the embassy and they collected 2 from me. So you don't have to worry about anything. At the end I was still granted visa

When was this? Where, how?

Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by Odoriferous: 4:14pm On Mar 28
Hello Fellow Nairalanders,

I recently got an invitation to attend an annual conference in San Jose, US. Among the requirements requested by the organizers inorder to process the invitation letter were;

·        Employer or University and address
·        Job title or degree of study

The problem I have is that , I work as a freelancer online ( I build mobile and web apps) for people hence I do not have a constant job. Also prior to this I would be taking jamb exams this year and I also cannot claim to be a University student. I am however confused on what to stand as; either as a Remote Software Developer who is a Freelancer or as a Student possibly awaiting admission to study computer science in Nigeria.

Please I would love to know which one to pick that might increase my ties to my country.



Am also taking into account that any little lie or uncertainty could lead to a denial

Please how many weeks did it take for her to get her passport back from the Embassy for Dropbox
groovychik:
My Mum did her dropbox before her visa expired and it was issued. So I guess you can apply whenever you want as long as it does not exceed a year after expiration. Good luck.

Hello House, I am new in here. I went for my B1 interview in Lagos, it was successful. The VO handed me the white paper and said I should pick up my passport in 3 working days. I allowed for up to 6 working days. Went to DHL and the staff said my passport isn't ready. Asked why and she said status on the US site states my case is on administrative processing. I was shocked and confused as my travel date was in 3 days time. I sent emails and called with no reply. I have been checking to track my passport ever since then and it's still on admin processing. My travel date as indicated on the DS 160 has passed, those who invited me for a business conference said I can attend another in July 2019. My questions please are:

1. How is it that after VO asked I pick my passport in 3 days but its still in admin processing, tomorrow will make it 2 weeks?
2. Now that my travel date has passed, what is the implication on my Visa....will they have to reassess my case?
3. Will the change in travel to July pose problems at the port of entry?
4. How long more should i wait? What can I do to fast track or even contact the embassy for my case, I have sent emails but with no response.
5. Has anybody had a similar case before.

Thank you guys.

Gurus in the house please assist me with this

yes, from the information on their website because I'll have to rebook my appointment. I may be lucky though and get to choose the same time since my interview is still over a month away

I had a similar issue and it was sorted out in 15 days after which they sent me an email to pick up my passport. Not to worry just keep looking at the website and it would change from ADMIN PROCESS to ISSUED. just calm down
