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

Thank you so much for the heads up...gonna brace myself then for a wait.

Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by yahooz: 1:43pm On Mar 29
Good afternoon,

I paid for my USA Visa application March 6, 2018(Last year), but I just applied for interview this year before the receipt expired and it was accepted on the system.

My question now is, with the receipt expired now, will I still be granted interview?

Also, what is the probability of them granting one a visa with a Canadian Immigrant Visa?
Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by bimseydee: 2:51pm On Mar 29
Hi my situation is quite complex. I was in the us i’ 2016 and stayed for 2 weeks. I went to visit my sister who just had a baby then. Fast forward to October 2018, i attempted to apply for renewal through dropbox as my visa was going to expire my November 2018. I submitted my documentation for dropbox renewal at the point of submission my us passport still had about 6 months validity on it before it expired however after I sent my documents through drop box I got an email that my passport was being sent back and i need to come in for an interview instead. So i went to pick the passport up from DHL in isolo. Upon collection, i tried to go online to reschedule and interview and there was no interview dates available then. I kept on checking over the next couple of days and there were still no dates showing up.
I sent an email to the embassy telling them on the situation and the response i got back was to keep checking . Finally after some days of checking, i finally got some date show up on my ustraveldocs dashboard and the earliest of this dates was June 2019.
I went ahead and chose this dates even though this was 7 months from the attempted dropbox renewal i did in October 2018. Like i mentioned earlier my passport when i was about to renew through dropbox in October 2018 was still valid but had about 6 months left to expire- so this clearly means that the passport information i filled in my new ds 160 and while booking my interview in ustraveldocs was my passport with 6months validity- however since i wasnt granted renewal through dropbox and had to reschedule an interview to go in for an inperson interview and i didnt get an early date and the earliest date available was June and by then the same passport which would have been good for the drop box renewal would be expired in June.
My plan initially when applying for fropbox with a pasport that was almost about to expire ( which is allowed as long as it has at least 6months to expiration on it). was if i get approved with dropbox , i only have to renew my old passport and get a new passport regardless then just carry 2 passports when i travel which is the Expired passport with the visa (if the visa would have been renewed with dropbox) and then carry my old and my new passport with me together so basically I’ll be traveling with 2 passports that is the old one that has the visa in it and then my new passports and which is something thats allowed.
So in confusion , i have gone to renew my passport as it has now expired while awaiting for the interview date and i have sent multiple emails to the embassy to rectify but they are not forthcoming. They said I can't update to a new passport because of the Gtbank receipt I used in making payment which carries my old passport number.
So i guess my question is - what do i do? Do i go in for the interview like that or do i have to make another gtbank payment or what?

You said shes a fan of Disney land and you told the vo you are going to New York, that should have been Florida.also I dont know if a 3 year old child will remember the promise. Think a family vacation would have sounded better.

What about the application number, I remembered 2015 this kind of thing happened to me, my application number on the non immigrant form is different from the appointment letter so I was denied interview, how do I go about this one?

The typing could be that she made observations. Just stay calm. I've been through fire in that place. I've once been interviewed for 30mins. LOL. I was issued the Visa but it wasn't funny. People were shocked when I was asked to come back for my passport. Just stay calm

Hello guys

Please what other documents should be sent along with a letter of invitation from my cousin who is a citizen? Visa type is B1/B2 and applying from the UK.

Thank you.
Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by felixboye1(m): 7:54pm On Mar 29
Pls what should I choose from Previously Refused and Regular( Previously Refused - If you have been interviewed and/or refused within the last 6 months, please select “previously refused.” Applicants will be denied visas for false misrepresentation) as am trying to schedule my interview. I was refused a Visa in December 17, 2018. It's not up to 6months.

Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by Hmebaze: 8:26pm On Mar 29
There is really nothing to worry about here. When you apply for a passport Renewal the old one would be cancelled without prejudice and the new one would come with a new passport number, however the old passport number wuld be somewhere on the new one. Just fill up a new DS 160, then update the DS160 on your USTRAVELDOC profile. Do not worry about the passport number cos it cant be edited on the USTRAVELDOC. Goto the embassy with both the old and new passport and your chances are high. I had a very Similar case of changing my pasport after paying for the VISA FEE and i did all ijst told you. I was given 2 papers though, one was for ADMIN PROCESS and the otheer one was to COLLECT my passport, i waited for about 16 to 18 days and got an email to pick up my passsport and yes i got the VISA. GOODLUCK

Hi guys..
Good morning..
Last year i applied for student visa for my MSA program but was denied. The consular was fair enough to tellnme to go build my financial structure and get back... I'm still on it...

Recently i was selected as one of the delegates of my professional association to attend a conference at Texas...

For the fact I was denied student visa last year July, will it be an impediment to get a visit visa in my upcoming interview?
Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by agbulagu: 11:02am On Mar 30
Abeg make una help me oo

I am currently a PhD student
I also have a fashion design business where I make good money.
I want to attend a conference in the USA in December
I am trying to fill my ds160 and I am going for an academic conference
Where they asked work / education, it seems I can only put either worker or student. If I select student, how do I add that I do business on the side since I am self sponsoring myself to the conference.

Abeg make una help me, I can pay for consultation

Good afternoon. I want sincere advise . I got a US visa in 2016, I have used it twice . My family also applied and got it . We were to travel together last year December but my visa wasn’t renew . I was given a 21g letter for further interview . I was unable to see available date within the period . My family went alone and has since come back to Nigeria . I will be attending the interview by May 2019 . My question is this , the date I filled in the ds-160 I submitted has passed (December 2018) , will I give them another date for traveling if asked ? Anyone with similar experience can please guide me . Thanks

Put student, then get a letter from your school saying you are a student. When the vo asks you what you do, tell him you are a student and fashion designer. Its advisable to say you are a student, but don't fail to mention fashion designing, this will help to show you have the means to sponsor yourself.
