Do you make regular payments in Foreign Currency?

Banks can charge up to 7% on Forex transactions. A number of banks (Bank of America, Bank One/First USA, Chase, Citibank, Diners Club, HSBC/Household, MBNA and Washington Mutual/Providian) recently settled a class action lawsuit “In re Currency Conversion Fee Antitrust Litigation” but they continue to charge huge spreads on Forex payments.

Or contact me

We can accept US accounts, and all countries are possible for sending and receiving, including Russia & China (but none on the OFAC list, such as Iran Iraq, etc. but I doubt many VJers from those countries)

As a K1 petitioner and Forex trader I would be happy to personally assist anyone who is transferring funds between different currencies.

Hi everyone!


From my understanding, the IR-1 visa is valid for 6 months from the moment it's issued. Is it any different with the CR-1? Somewhere on this forum I heard that it's only valid for 2 months, is that true?


Thank you.

arrowParental history on G325A

Hi y'all-


I am completing my beneficiary's G325A form.  On that form it requests information regarding the beneficiary's parents.  My fiancee doesn't have a relationship with her father, nor does her mother, nor does anyone else in the family for that matter.  Her family has attempted to inquire with extended family members to determine what is happening with him, but to no avail.  Therefore at this point, no one knows where he currently lives.  And that is one of the items on the G325A.


So.  What to do?  Dunno.  I thought I'd post to see if anyone else has experience with this.  Should I write the last known city or simply write UNKNOWN (kind of analogous to using NONE in other places on these forms)?

Hi everyone!


Our case has just been approved for expedite processing by both NVC and the embassy. However I am bit confused as to what this process is like exactly. The NVC has sent our documents to the embassy, so does that mean that it has reviewed everything or will the embassy check everything instead? What are the major differences between the regular process and expedite one?


Thank you.

arrowTax Return Confusion

Hello everyone,


We filed our taxes in January 2014: our accountant made a mistake and wrote down that my husband was 'single'.

In January 2014 I was still waiting for my greencard papers. We found the mistake right before the green-card interview in March but were lucky not to have been asked to show the tax papers at the interview.


After I received my green card and became a Permanent Legal Resident, we filed the AMENDED tax return where we corrected the mistake and filed as "married filing jointly'. We received the amended tax return soon after in April.


My question is: did we have to show my taxes from Russia?

When we filed the amended return I was already a greencard holder. Never worked in the US in 2013. 

Did I have to show my 2013 income from when I was still living in Russia in 2013?
