arrowDid my interview and it wasn't approved on spot because the officer was having trouble with locating my visa in the system

I had my immigration interview yesterday. The officer said that our interview went well and everything. But she couldn't approve the interview at the same time. When my wife asked her why she can't approve the case immediately the officer said that she could not find my visa in her system. she entered the student visa first which was stamped canceled without prejudice on it. (I realised what she was doing and pointed out to her that my student visa is expired and that was not the visa i entered the country on. I skipped in my passport and showed her where the B1/B2 visa was. But she said the system was not taking the number. I was thinking it may be because she tried so much with the other expired visa. Anyway in the evening I got an update that they approved the I-130. But I didn't have any updates on my I-485. Should I be worried

So decided to join VisaJourney to get a better idea of what I want to do based on what others have gone through.

So I have been on F-1 student visa since the year 2001. I was about the age of 10 and completed junior high , high school and most college.

So my student visa is up in October and I have no idea what to do. My boyfriend (American citizen ) and I have been together for 3 years now .We went to high school together weren't into each other back then but somewhere alongside the line we fell in love.

If we get married I know we'll prolly have to file adjust stays I-485/ I-130 petition. But is there anyway I wouldn't have to leave and stay till the process over , being that my visa up soon?

P.s waited this long cause I didn't wanna marry for papers but I really do love him and I can't imagine being away from him.

Any advise would be great than in advance .

Hello, not at this stage yet but trying to make sure I got every thing covered. have two questions (1)If you have a lawyer you can send AOS and IV package together, if not you have to send AOS and wait on IV invoice which can be 30 to 60 days later? (2) Do u have to fill out a ds-260 for spouse minor child under 5?

arrowIs Passport lost/misplaced at the Embassy?

So did my interview at the embassy in Kingston Jamaica on August 8th and approved. Given a slip to pick-up on the 14th so I could travel with hubby on the 17th. The CO said that DHL would take too long so I should pick it up instead. Went back on the specified date, Thursday the 14th and was told that my name wasn't on the list but I could go through. I was called to the window and waited nearly 5 minutes at the window while they searched stacks of passports, pulled away the desk and up to 3 persons looking through passport stacks. They called the CO who approved me who came looked out on me and then they had some discussion. The lady called me back and said they would have to call me. 3 business days later and still no call.


The funny thing is on his way back on Sunday the customs officer asked him the reason for visiting Jamaica and he told him he had expected to come back with me. He explained what happened and the officer told him to follow it up as they sometimes lose passports? WTH? The officer also told him that with an expedite case the visa is normally issued within the stated times so we should stay on top of it.


This morning he called DOS and the officer there told him in case that was what happened (it is not customary for them to tell you to come and it is not ready he said) I might have to get a new passport. Say what?


Hubby has emailed Kingston and we are now awaiting their response.17 months and counting sigh.....


Funny thing is as I was waiting a lady behind me was picking up her visa. She had her interview the first week in April and was ONLY called the morning on August 14th. She was told she had to travel before midnight of August 15th as her medical would expire on August 16th. So at 2.45pm she was in the embassy waiting on her and her son's passport to be able to travel the next day. SMH

Does anyone know if there is some way to get a print out of calls you made using a calling card? I don't call directly all the time because in the past I have managed to accumulate a 700.00 cell phone bill. 😊😊
