Hi everyone,I am just trying to find out how many people have actually had their CR1 or K-3 visas denied in Lagos??Has anyone been put on AP??..just trying not to get my hopes up and become too confident about the interview even though we have provided wedding pics,pics from the last 2 years and from all 3 visits and emails and other stuff has of course been accepted by NVC,just still dont want to become over confident.God's time is the best always..Any opinions?

Well, you need to get your hope high and be expectant... So far your relationship is genuine and real, then you shouldn't worry yourself about being denied. You'll have the visa. Just keep praying and always have faith in God. Peace be unto you!

It would be unfair to say get them high, but think positive, but I would say stay one step ahead if possible and be prepared to do extra work if required, ask yourself of the likely outcomes, of course the realtionship is genuine then there is no fear on that part, but if you are like me, a worrier of things then it is only natural, I mean how many times have you done this? my guess would be none and its unfamiliar teritory and is natural to feel this way.

Have a back up plan just in case. Fail to plan is a plan to fail, thats my moto!

But unless the IO feels there is something not right and declines then you will be good to go!

I have seen someone denied and later granted visa like a month after.The reason being that the corresponding emails between Petitioner and Beneficiary had the petitioner addressing herself as Mrs.,while they werent married yet and were on a Spouse Visa application.

But i believe providing enough evidence and showing how much you want it done is a successful before the interview

There are a number of couples with real relationships that have been denied in Lagos , including us. I know of denials in the last 2 months where the parties have not posted in public because of how negative the reaction is to denied couples. You have to prepare for the worst and hope for the best. Don't go there thinking that you are a true couple and they will just grant you a visa. The more red flags you have in your relationship the more you need to prepare. Most couples that are denied will get a visa on a second attempt but there are some that fail even then and are still married couples. At that point usually the USC has to move to Nigeria for an entended time ( 6 months - 1 year) to convince the consulate that you are serious about your relationship. If you buy into the ####### that Lagos gives out visas to all valid couples you are in for a huge letdown.


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

Good post. To add to the "blunt", Consular officers don't give a hoot how much the US Citizen thinks their relationship is genuine. The focus is on the intentions of the foreigner and related evidence. Often, the USC only THINKS they know the true feelings and intentions of their foreign spouse. This is a key reason why time spent living together is the strongest evidence of a bona fide relationship.

NVC does document intake

Visa Officer at an Embassy IV Unit adjudicates the casefile.

Right, NVC does not evaluate any unofficial papers and for official papers, only for whether they are completed correctly. Clearing NVC says nothing about the eventual result of the interview.

Thank you for the all the comments,I am a Christian woman married to a Chrsitian man and we have alot of faith.Also,we have more than enough documentation to support that our relationship is real.Neither of us has ever filed for or by anyone else and the people that I "do" know of that have been denied,for the most part was due to some kind of suspicion or affiliation with other "problem" couples which we do not have.So,in trusting God's promise to us, I will believe that all will be well and my husband will finally be here with me soon.Thanks again! :thumbs:

Regardless of anything else you mention, time together in person is the best evidence. How much time have you spent together in person?

Well,because it is so difficult (and costly) to get a visitor visa out of Nigeria, I have only went to see my husband,not the other way around. I have visited 3 times and the first time it was for 1 month,then 10 days - 2 weeks the other two times.I would have liked to have stayed longer but I had to keep my (full time)job in order to prove support,also I am a full time student working on my 2nd degree,which both will benefit us in the future. :yes:
