Hello All,

In the spirit of giving back, here's my POE story... smiley

I arrived New York about 10days ago, but enjoyment and the cold no gree me type since. Lol.

I flew Etihad, because that was the best deal I got for my travel dates asides from Arik. I didn't wanna use arik.
I had a 7 hours layover at Abu-Dhabi, and with the US - PRECLEARANCE located at Abu-Dhabi airport, my POE was at Abu-Dhabi.

I was a bit skeptical about flying Etihad, cos of the horror stories I had heard about POE and the airline itself, but I decided to take the risk, and the first leg of the journey was good, really good.

The flight from Lagos to Abu-Dhabi was excellent, in - flight services on point! POE at Abu-Dhabi was a breeze! Was just asked the basic questions, how long I was gonna stay, which state in the US I was headed and all, biometrics taken, and Gbam, I was stamped in for 6 months.
Flight from Abu-Dhabi to Newyork was very good as well, that I didn't even realise when the 13 hours 50 minutes journey was over. I got to New-York as a domestic arrival, baggage pick up was swift and I found my way out....

New York City has been good so far! Enjoying my stay here, and counting down to my return date. Last week was terrible though as the cold was crazy coz of the hurricane.

Ermmm... end of my story, goodnight from here! grin


Enjoy my dear... wish you a safe stay and a smooth flight when you return.

(No forget to bring goodies oh)

If this is the first time u are using the visa, u might have a tough questions at the POE as why changing destination. During my time, I filled Maryland in my form, eventually went to Ohio, and it was my first time. I was faced with serious interogations at the POE there in Ohio, spent almost 2 hours there, but I had a good reason for it anyway, and I was stamped in for 6 months

U can write here anything u want to ask. Everyone will contribute, including myself
For a first time traveller to the US, its always the best to arrive in the state where u told the VO at the interview. It will clear all doubts.
If u have to change destination, ensure u have a very good reason, especially for a first time traveller.
That's my opinion. Others will shed light on this

@belloluddy answered correctly. Northing illegal but may, remember the word may, face serious questions for a first time traveler.

Now depends where in texas you are going. If dallas/fort worth municipality area, you can rent a car and drive it. It is a straight one high way 35 going north. If Houston or Austine or other big cities in texas it will be a long journey up to 6hrs or more.

Good Luck

My transcript at Lagos, 10am yesterday

Me- Good morning
Vo- Good morning, passport pls

Passed it over, saw him opening the pages hurriedly

Vo- Where are you going to?
Me- Houston Texas

Vo- what for?
Me- To have my baby
He continued typing, no change of expresssion

Congrats and your body language was spot on.. it helps

VO- Are you in contact with any doctor?
Me- yes

VO- Do you have any correspondence with the doctor with you?
Me- yes ( brought out dr fs correspondence, my email and budget spreadsheet and passed it, I tried removing the spreadsheet since he dint ask for it, but he said I shld bring that too)

VO- how do you get to know about the doctor?
Me- A friend he delivered of twins (Sanyoberry na my e friend na?) recommended him and I also went online to check the reviews about him, and I was okay with what I read. (He stopped typing and looked straight into my eyes, I looked back into his, dint know he was that handsome)

He checked d spreadsheet first, and scanned tru dr F's correspondence, re arranged the document, putting dr F's correspondence in the fore front and typed again.

VO- (stopped typing and looked at me) do you have any family in Houston
Me- No, (I maintain the eye contact, shaking my head at the same time)

VO- what do do you?
Me- I'm a lawyer

He started typing again
VO- Are you married?
Me- Yes with kids
VO- Your husband has a valid passport?
Me- yes

Looked up from the computer finally, and packed dr F's correspondence together, passing it to me

VO- keep all this documents, you may need it at the point of entrance ( I started smilling)

VO- your visa is approved, pick it up on Monday @ d circled bla bla bla

Me- thank you ( thinking how nice and handsome the young man looks).


My interview cldnt be more than 2 minutes, it pays to be honest and truthful,he dint even ask all d questions iv imagined. I read thru the part 1 and 2 of US birth and procedure thread, I went further to US visit thread, picked some individuals and read thru their post, I learnt so much, above all, I prayed, prayed and believe. Even though I went with my burden of proof, it wasn't checked, it's all God's grace
Special tanks to Lady G, chloe7, Phema and others too numerous to mention.
I apologise for the long post, I tried to be detailed, so it can help someone as it helped me.

I am trying to reschedule my appointment and also change the location from Lagos to Abuja so I can get an earlier date. Do I have to cancel the previous appointment? Because I can't find any option to change location in the reschedule page. Also it's warning me that if I cancel I have exceeded an will have to pay another MRV fee and I have not rescheduled before. Should I just ignore the warning or contact them for a possible solution.

Is it your friend or you? Please be honest so we can be truthful to you.

This thread is for visit visa only and not for immigration.

For travel to the US "to base permanently" I suggest you visit the immigrant thread here https://www.nairaland.com/1792591/u.s-immigration-questions-ask-u.s.

The VO is gone but you can read up all 222 pages and you will surely find the answers you are looking for.

Thanks and have a good day. grin

just come clean, you're the one not your friend! do u have fam in the US that can file immigration petition on your behalf? do you want to study in the US? I think those are the only two ways you can move to America legally with an O level certificate. or you can play the visa lottery when Nigeria became eligible again. but from the undertone of what you said, you're a potential illegal immigrant
