Lagos embassy

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello my fellow VJers,

The embassy in Lagos has confirmed that they received our case from NVC however, they stated they will not send out packet 3 until an interview date is scheduled. My question to those of you who went through Lagos..... I noticed in your time lines that your better halfs picked up packet 3 from the embassy. How did they know when packet 3 was available for pick. Did you receive phone calls emails...etc. I just don't want a situation where they mail it out, bc we'd like to save some time. And given our experiences thus far, I'd really prefer it.

Thanks to all in advance.

Fax/scan your copy of your NOA2 and the letter from NVC saying the case has been forwarded to the embassy to your hubby. Then he just takes those two forms with a form of identification and he goes to the embassy anytime, stands in the inquiry line and they will set up the interview for him there and give him an interview date. It could take hours so he should be prepared for that and should get there early.

Yep, that is what we did. We waited about a week or 10 days from the time they said it had been sent. Something like that. It did take him all day long and a lot of standing in line. And, I think they gave him a hard time. But but be patient and percistant and they should give the interview time. Good luck.
