arrowTourist visa from Jamaica - save money/time and not bother?

Hi all,

I'm new on here and have been reading the boards for a short while. Met my boyfriend in August and just came back from visiting him 2 weeks ago. I also just made plans to visit again in February. In the meantime, I would love for him to come here and meet my family since I've met his. He has a grandmother and aunt that do not live far from my family so he would also get a chance to visit them.

He has no intentions of moving here (we have had many debates about this) and since we are still in the early stages of the relationship, there are no marriage/engagement plans yet. He has a job and also leases an apartment. All of his family except for the grandmother and aunt live in Jamaica. He has a bank account but not much savings.

Should we just save the time and money and not been apply for a visitors visa since it will probably be denied as soon as he steps up to the officer? Do most people just visit their significant other until they are engaged/married and then file for those visas?

Thanks in advance for responding.

My fiancè is from Jamaica and graduated high school so will he need any special paperwork to bring to U.S. for when he is ready to start work? Will employers accept his foreign certificate?

Here is my vent and complaint.  Sent in renewal passport in October, they stated it takes 4-6 weeks, OK cool.  I called embassy in Washington, DC today, to say hey, never got a confirmation of receipt, etc... when will he receive his new passport. (although, I sent it with a tracking number)


Embassy Response:  O we were going to call you, he needs two more passport pictures, and then it will be processed.  Why the new pictures....he was showing teeth.  O_O  Bumba.....


So off we go to spend more money..... new pictures, notarization of pictures, and another priority mailing.

My take on the interview at the Kingston Embassy. Everything was pretty basic and straight forward for me, the consular officer ask some simple questions about me and my fiance and that was it for the interview. I was approved and give a white piece of paper to sign up with DHL...... Smile awhile  :)

National Visa Center No Longer Requires Original Civil DocumentsNovember 14th, 2014 | by D.M. | Category: AOS, Articles, News, Visa Processing

In an important (and surely welcome by many) announcement, the National Visa Center (NVC) has announced that as of November 12, 2014, they would no longer start requiring and collecting original civil documents in support of immigrant visa (green card) cases.     Most applicants will simply need to submit photocopies of the applicable required civil documents (birth certificate, marriage certificate, police certificate, etc.) to NVC and bring the originals to the Consulate for the immigrant visa interview.

New Instructions to NVC Applicants Starting November 12, 2014

After NVC applicants (and their petitioners, as applicable) collect the Affidavit of Support form(s), financial evidence, and supporting civil documents, they are instructed to submit all of the documents to NVC.   As of November 12, 2014, applicants at non-electronic processing posts will be instructed to submit photocopies of their civil documents by mail.   NVC will review the copies and, when the case is documentarily complete, will place the copies into the file, which will be sent to the Consular post, increasing the number of cases that are documentarily qualified.  In other words, not requiring original civil documents is likely to allow more people to complete their NVC process faster.

When the appointment is scheduled, NVC will instruct applicants to bring their original documents to the interview for evaluation and final case processing. Original Affidavit of Support forms will still be submitted to NVC for initial evaluation. Applicants at designated electronic processing posts (and only for those posts) will continue to submit their documents via email.


We welcome this announcement from NVC because it is likely to significantly shorten the time it takes to complete an NVC case.   According to NVC, they expect this slight change in the process to reduce customer wait times and improve the customer experience overall.
