My husband went for his interview at the US Embassy in Lagos, Nigeria On April 9, 2015. He was approved and given instructions on when and where to pick up his visa. On the 7th day April 16, 2015 it was not there. He was then told by the staff to come back the next day. He went back and it still was not there. He received a call to come back in for a second interview, when he asked if he should bring anything he was only told by the caller that he just calls to inform people. Has this happened to anyone else. If so what was the outcome

Hi,

I am newly engaged to the love of my life, Basim. He is Egyptian and Muslim and I am American and raised very Pentacostal. this message board is truly a gift and wealth of knowledge. We are wondering if differences between religions cause hold ups during the k1 visa process?

Not sure if this is the right place to post this but....my husband has been in the US since December 25, 2014 and he never received his green card. I paid the $165 fee on December 23, 2014 before he even left Haiti. I have called USCIS several times and have been given the same answer..."Wait a few more weeks." Has anyone else experienced something similar? How long did it take you or your spouse to receive the physical green card? What should I do? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you,

Kay

arrowNeed a primary government ID for Passport or other reasons?

All-

 

I wanted to give back to this community and share a helpful tip.  My fiance and I fought tooth and nail to get a primary government ID.  You can see in my post history.  Long story short, we waited months for SSS ID, Voter's ID, and tried to get the BIR ID on several occasions and never received them.

 

In mid-March, the PHLPost offers a new "International Postal ID" that the DFA will accept.  Keep in mind, it is the Philippines and they don't follow any of the posted rules if they don't feel like it, so your mileage may vary, but we were successful in going this route.

 

The PHLPost Postal ID Facebook page has a bunch of good info.  I'm not sure if it's rolled out everywhere, but this should get you started if you need an ID.  From applying to receiving the ID it only took us about 10-15 days and all she needed was a birth cert and possibly a few other easily obtainable documents (possibly police clearance or NBI clearance, which you will need for the Visa anyway).

 

Hope this helps!!!

Hello i am really confused as to what we should do and finally decided to ask for help.

Info on us
myself 21 years old. Native usa,
my partner 19 years old native australia,
us, we are currently in new Zealand and have 11 months to make something happen.

We need to find the cheapest fastest way for her to get in with me. We've been together a very long time and have plenty of proof of sincerity. We can do engagement, marriage, either in new Zealand or once there. I have exhausted myself looking but am confused. An immigration agent is an option but not right now and time is ticking. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
