Your line is supposed to roam automatically. That's what my Mtn does. Even when in transit, it connects to the partner network in the country.

The year was 2009. I was an extra (waka pass) on the set of 'The Figurine', produced and directed by Kunle Afolayan and starring Ramsey Nouah and Funlola Aofiyebi (she wasn't yet Raimi back then).

We were scheduled to film the party scene where Ramsey's character was gisting with Afolayan's, and filming was to start at midnight. I really don't know why we had to start the shoot so late, but after spending the whole evening loitering around Opebi where the set was, I was VERY hungry and couldn't find any where to buy food. By 10pm the hunger had reached critical proportions.

Ramsey is actually very humble. I met him through his wife( another amazing humble lady Emilia)

Gentle men and gurus

Please this is very urgent !!! how do i view my Ds-160 form i have earlier submitted. I have totally forgotten what i filled in it and to make matters worse i did not download it before submitting. Thought of refilling a new one but my interview is so near.
Please help a brother

What's so difficult about your life? Your DS 160 is basically your history kinda. Do you need to remember it? The forms should be a true representation and not opposite. I wish you all the best.

Guys! Am visiting US next week for a conference B1! I will be staying at a friends place! She has requested i help her bring some food stuffs over from Nigeria! Hope that won’t be a problem at POE?

Don't carry fresh vegetables. Make sure it's you buying the stuff you are traveling with. No noodles, Knott cubes, dried meat or anything meat. You MUST declare you have foodstuff.
Travel / Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by flourishing247: 4:02pm On Feb 20
Just a little heads up for everyone. If you know you overstayed the days you filled in your ds160 form. There's a possibility of refusal. The best thing is to pray seriously before you go to the embassy. During my renewal I was asked severally if I will adhere to the dates I put down in my form. I said yes. The VO typed something oooo. They take these things serious.

To the dude that stayed 3months. Nna, if you get job for Naija, there's no way you'd stay that long in the US. Let's not kid ourselves. Even if you had ticket issues, you would have gotten a direct flight back home to continue your business. I keep telling Nigerians, if you think you are smart, these guys are smarter. They've seen all sorts.

My parents USA visa was approve today, purpose is to attend my wedding and graduation. My question is that can someone help them pick up their passport, if yes what will the person need to go with to the DHL pickup center.

The only question ask was why are they going to the United States.

The white form says it all. Write the persons name and sign. The person must go with the white form and a valid acceptable ID card. Eg passport, drivers license

Omo" I entered that trap last week from Minneapolis St Paul to Atlanata GA... Flight was booked at 56USD... On getting to the counter with my 2 boxes... I paid painfully additional 189USD for my laugages alone.... I almost cried...

hello good people

if someone says they want to go for 6 days on their application, but they end up going for 8 days as evidenced by their ticket. will there be any future problems with visa applications or even entry to the US?

Not a problem.

Guys good day
Please am new in this platform and I intend to process US non immigrants visa since Nigeria has been ban on immigrants visa. I have some one over there but I don't know what how the process and documents that is involved.
Or is it better to use a travel agent within Nigeria or US.
Please I you guys response thanks.

Did anyone file immigrant visa for you? I'm asking cos you made reference to it. If yes, please don't bother going to the embassy for non immigrant. At least for now

Unless you are Using some points based system
Or heavily discounted promos I don't think you can get a 3-star hotel for 10 days even in rural America for 450 -600

I will say 750 to 850 for a good deal. But you may be able to get the bedbug motel 6 like places for that amount

Depends on location na. LOL.

I remember someone said something about delayed baggage here sometime ago. Please note that you can be compensated. Once your bag is delayed more than a day. You can shop for essentials ie change of clothes, personal items etc. Basically don't cross 150 Euro. They will refund you everything. Don't forget to keep your receipts.

Cheap ticket issues. LOL. I only try it within the US not for international flights. Imagine paying for luggage plus excess luggage. Cheap tickets also come with long layovers. Bargain de sweet sha.

True @the bolded. How many people really wan go holiday for inside that yeye cold? But don't try that rubbish for summer tickets from late May into June, till after summer, ticket prices will mostly only be climbing. Also avoid doing that for Christmas/New Year period, buy such ticket from between September and deep into November, that's even for those of us traveling from Naija to that side, but for those coming, na die!

I got my ticket in October for a December trip. I got a very good bargain. By the time I checked in November............ Choi!!!! No be small thing

That age old logic, appears to be gradually going away..or mine is a special case.
Have been watching ticket prices for over 5 wks now, and it actually got cheapest about 10days to go.

Someone cancelled. Most cheap tickets are sold weeks before the flight. It's usually a special deal between airlines and travel agencies. I wouldn't advise you to do that again. You got very lucky

US permanent residents can petition for their minor kids and spouses but not siblings.

Really? When did they stop it? I know lots of citizens that filed for their siblings and 80% have moved over. Siblings with families too.

You can't file for someone if you are not legal. You need to be a citizen to file for your child or sibling. Are you sure you are not getting things mixed up? Anyway, you better get busy with other stuff cos you have a long way to go.

Seems he has like 600k to 800k to pay for ticket.
Your travel date is in about 30days, and you are dilly daddling on buying tickets.

Airline ticket prices increase every hour as the flight gets nearer. Even local flight.

Might be a first time traveller. People buy tickets 3-4months ahead of travel date. You get the tickets so cheap. Yummy bargain
