helpee:Well said buddy, Na jappa things, it is written all over the post of the person you are advising, the VO's are smart enough to see and smell jappa candidates, obtaining the US visa 3 or 4 years ago as a Nigerian from Nigeria was much easier compared to now, without good income, solid travel history, assets, investment, married with kids etc it is a colossal waste of money to apply for the US visa and coupled with the recent FBI raid on some Nigerians engaged in fraud which puts the country on a negative radar, if you don't have serious reasons with all l mentioned above, avoid the US EMBASSY or else, dem go continue to use your visa fees to drink hot coffee, bacon and bagel

this man self, create a new ds 160 for your mum with her email address, then use your dad appointment information on appointment site to slot her own with her payment number or better still create a new appointment for her, she will b ask our her husband when she is doing her interview make sure all her husband name and information are well listed in her ds 160 and she should state she is not going alone

I'm working with a couple applying for tourist visa. They both have an appointment already. However, after reviewing their documents, I noticed that the primary applicant has Abuja as the designated post on the DS160 form while the other is designated in Lagos. Both of them are interviewing together in Lagos. This might be a problem. Has anyone successfully been able to get the consulate to change their DS160 post prior to interview date? Of course the reason I ask is to avoid having the applicant fill a new DS160, update it on the appointment system and reschedule considering the difficulty in securing dates right now. I simply want to hear from those who might have succeeded in having NIV make appropriate changes to the designated post on the form DS160. Back in the day, I know you could call Consular services to make these sort of changes; not sure if this is still the case.

This one pain you. Haha. USA and shakara.
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by wuki: 6:16pm On Sep 03|
Nevermind, I spoke with a contact at Consular Services and it's been taken care of.

Please Gurus in the house! My good friend need your advice. She is planning to attend a workshop in October but after paying for B1 Visa fee, she realised that the first available appointment date is in December.
If she choose December, the workshop would have ended and there will be no need for it. Also her invitation says the workshop will hold between October 30 to November
Please is there a way around this, kindly advice. Thank you very much for your input and advice
LadyG and co...pls show

Hello house I just came across this on the internet this morning, and I see why our social media is been requested for when fill the DS160, please let be guided on what we post on our social media and groups we join on them. Here is a link to what I read about people deported at the POE.
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by wuki: 2:59pm On Sep 04|
AFAIK, this has been going on since the Obama era - this isn't new. A client of mine tried to be cleaver by half back in 2015: just before flying, he backed up his phone and wiped the whole thing (only leaving his contacts and some basic info/apps.) Problem is: he wasn't so fortunate at the port of entry and was asked to login to his Facebook/social media accounts. So yeah, it's advised to exercise caution with your digital footprint when traveling overseas. Having a visa is no guarantee for admissability.
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by Distinct05: 3:38pm On Sep 04|
Thank you I reached out to the embassy yesterday via phone and I was asked to send in her passport details to email@example.com, the payment receipt and the turn-back letter. They helped update her profile and now I am good to go. I appreciate your efforts and prompt reply @ ALL.

How can she go about the emergency thing. The appointment dates keep fluctuating
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by skdfu747(m): 7:59pm On Sep 04|
Everybody has a right to express their opinion online and publicly.
Providing social media details on DS 160 form is not compulsory there is an option to select None.
I don’t know about others, but based on my experience only very minute amount of travelers get turned back at the port of entry depending on the individual case.
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by skdfu747(m): 8:10pm On Sep 04|
Caution about what?
If your hands are clean and your intentions are good there will be no need to go through the stress of wiping out all information from your phone.
People that fall into this trap are usually unnecessarily nervous at the port of entry then they end up in CBP secondary questioning.
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by wuki: 8:28pm On Sep 04|
It's not just a matter of having clean hands. You could still be denied entry for stuff on your phone or social media account that has nothing to do with you. It's fair to say the folks mentioned in the report had "clean hands"; however, they were still deported. If the guy with the disturbing photo knew ahead of time he'd be deported over a photo that was sent to him on Whatsapp, guess what he'd have done? Your guess is as good as mine. A word is enough for the wise.
By the way, the guy I mentioned in my earlier post still clears his phone whenever he comes over here to the U.S out of an abundance of caution. Different stroke for different folks. I wasn't suggesting that folks delete their phones but my point is: whatever it takes to minimize the chances of entry denial is in one's best interest.

Ugh ! How's @the bolded to work please? I actually can't see it. It's only the CGI crew that can solve this to the best of my understanding. This is the reason I always say a profile should be created for each applicant irrespective of age. If she had her profile, it would have just been a walkover correcting this issue with making calls or sending mails....
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by corrall(f): 5:55am On Sep 05|
Please who has been to the embassy lately, the extra money one is to pay for a successful visa, is it to be carried for the interview? Or is it at the point of collection of passport? Please help.
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by Wilsub: 8:01am On Sep 05|
corrall:You are to go with it, #40,700, once you are approved, you will have to pay the money immediately at the embassy.

|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by Beautyaddy: 4:03pm On Sep 05|
You can try to apply to both Countries...so that you can have a plan B incase plan A disappoints.
|Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by emily111: 7:10pm On Sep 05|
Please I think we need to read this concerning the social media stuff been required for visa and see why we must be honest and be careful of what we post

Customer care is zero and they may reject your card, compare the price with the airline and go through the T&C before doing transaction oooo.
