Interrogated at Interview and given 221g...HELP

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

My fiance was really put through the wringer at the interview...I was present. In the end, we were given a 221g and told that we should get a new police certificate from Nigeria...(fiance's homeland---now permanent resident in England) We are doing exactly what they have instructed. When we get the police certificate we are to contact the courier services for the embassy and they will pick up the police certificate and his passport and return to embassy....we were told that 7- 10 days after receipt the passport will be returned to fiance.

The inteview really rattled me...The immigration officer stated to my fiance that it looked like he had married his first wife to get a permanent resident in England and now to marry me to get residency in the US...I understand that this officer was only doing his job but we have a legitimate relationship...Worried now...

Has anyone ever gotten a 221g and the visa approved...

Your thoughtful replies are appreciated....

Sure, lots of people have. Sounds like the police certificate was too old but you passed the interview. They wouldn't ask for the passport back with the new police report if they didn't intend to issue the visa contingent on a clean current report. Intentions do change but this looks good.

The fingerprints from the police certificate were smudgy and the officer asked if my fiance had purchased the certificate off the streets...This guy was in my mind RUDE...but none the less gave an opportunity to get a new certificate using clean fingerprints from a recommended police station in London...Everything is in process now with the fingerprints having been DHL'd to Nigeria on Friday...interview was Thursday...2/10

Just really worried..

Understandable that you're worried and will be until the visa is in hand but what you experienced was "soft denial". Your case had red flags and the officer pressed to address them and trip up the applicant. Apparently the interview was a success but they want a good current, clean police report.

I got a 221g on my interview on January but they told me to come back a week later for another interview. Instead of another interview they issued my immigrant visa.Each case is different but I am sure you will end with your visa in hand once you have submitted whatever they request from you.

Hi amykathleen,

so do u know of other ppl here on VJ that have gone through London as non-UK-citizens that I may look up to see what their interview experiences were like. We are kind of in a similar situation where my hubby lives in UK but has a Nigerian passport. We are currently awaiting an interview date. thanks.

I dont think the CO was rude, it is very common and known fact that ppl in do buy documents off the street in Nigeria - which are fake documents.

So what Co was asking was just to make sure that he was looking at the legitimate document. I guess you have not heard of guy called "Uncle London" in Nigeria.... :)

I believe that MARM had a similar experience and ended up in AP.

Patoch, you will have to check the embassy you are going through for your interview to see if they allow the petitioner...We, are going through 2 different embassies...one for my fiance and another for his children who live in another country. London allows the petitioner into the interview...Nigeria will not allow the petitioner to attend the interview... Good Luck
