Should I do something about updating my DS160?

When I submitted my DS160, I did not have vaccination. So I checked NO to the question about whether I had vaccination. Later I submitted DS160 and scheduled my interview.

After I submitted DS160 and before my interview, which is in two days, I had my medical during which I also had all the required vaccination done.

Should I contact the consulate before the interview about the updated information on DS160 about the vaccination? Thanks!!

Hi? the Consulate urges the USC to attend K1 interview if they are in NZ.

Anyone has such experience? Do they make any difference? Thanks.

Hi Guys,

I am planning to send money from NZ to the US and am quite unsure about the foreign exchange companies.

Have any of you used http://www.nzforex.co.nz/? Is it legit?

Any other recommendations? Thanks!

I130 - Married Name or Maiden

Hi everyone,

My husband and I both live in NZ - he is the US Citizen and we are in the process of filling in our i130 application.

The one thing that I am confused / worried about is that my passport is in my maiden name - But I want the visa to be in my married name.

As far as I can tell my 3 options are:

1.Fill in the forms with my married name, using the passport with my maiden name, however because we are sending our marriage certificate this will suffice as evidence of name change - to explain why the name on the passport and the name on the forms is different

2. Apply for a new passport in my married name and then submit all the forms with my married name and that new passport number

3. Fill in the forms with my maiden name as that is what my passport has on it.

As far as I can tell number 2 is probably the most straight forward option.

Any advice? We are trying to avoid any RFE at all so we are trying to cover every single base we possibly could to submit a perfect application.

TIA, Jaime

I tried and got the following. Only one day for K-1? Does this include "Wait Time for Interview" and "Wait Time for Processing"?? VJ stats says the processing time is about 40 days to only get interview. Am I looking at the wrong place? Cheers.

Visitor Visas 13 Calendar Days*
