K1 Visa (Nigeria) NVC:Ready!

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I have been bouncing back and forth and still not 100% certain what to do next. My Fiance and I K1 application stated READY when tracking on the NVC/CEAC website but I am a little confused as what to do next. Are we the one to schedule the interview online or are we to wait for an interview date from the embassy/consulate? I have seen so many conflicting things. I know each country is very different and I really needs some who knows specifically about NIGERIA and their process to possible give me some feedback.

Thanks!!

We recently had the same problem. We never received a packet 3 or 4. So I emailed the consular in Lagos and was sent a packet three via email. Basically, you assemble you evidence, apply online for a DS-160 (did that 3-4 days ago), pay your visa fees (265USD or ~51,700NGN) at GT bank, then go online and schedule the appointment at the appointment website. If they send you the packet via email, it will include where and how to get the medical done and how to get a police certificate. We called the childrens practice because it is very close to the police certificate place. The children's practice is about 55000NGN including the vaccinations. The first visit, however, is 16000NGN. The vaccines are given on the second visit. From researching, I haven't called and neither has my fiance, i think the police certificate is about 5000NGN. Hope that helps. Good luck and i wish you the best.

Hey! Our petition has been sent to the NVC and we're currently waiting to hear from them. In the meant time I've been searching to see what the next steps are and what the American consulate in Lagos needs. This is really helpful and even provides the medical and police forms needed, the contact information for the approved doctors who can perform the medical exam, and the link you'll use to schedule your own interview. I hope it helps and good luck in everything! It's so stressful I know!
