Hello everyone, i know everyone has been very busy not to wish me all the best prior my interview , well, everything went so great. got the 6am, lined up and went into the consulate 6.45am and i was called by a black nigerian lady to submit all my docs. the affidavis, passport, ds156 forms, medical and the police certificate. so i was aske dto be sitted and last was called by this white guy around 12.35pm and was interview. he's a nice guy, we chatted and he asked about my docs. and i gave it to him and he love the way i filled my doc. in a folder, it was so colorful and organized and he told me that am so organized and i have really preparde for them and the other CO around him, heard what he said and they came to look at it and they love it and he asked who packaged the folder and i said my wife. at the end of everything he asked me to show my photos and mails, which i did and the first mail he read was the mail where my wife with anoyances bullshit the immigrations...and he was like wow, she bullshit up here and all the CO's there were laughing and at the end of it all, he gave me a letter to come pick up the visa on tuesday, but when he was entering the name in the system, some names came up that are same with my lastname, and he asked if i have ever been to the usa and i said know and asked as well, if i have any brother thatbears my lastname and calle dthere first names, about 4peoples names and i said no, so he said i need to do all my fingerprint, and he gave me a letter nand i was told to pay $85 and should come on friday morning 9am for the 10 fingers fingerprinting.

my question, have any one gone thru the fingerprinting and how long does it take to get the result so i can o pick up my visa.

i wish everyone all the best , lagos consulate is calm now and the CO's are friendly, just be composed and be organized.

i need to hearing from you all asap.

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR INTERVIEW!!!

Surprising that you and my husband was there at the Consulate Office on the same day. However, he was only there to pick up the packets. So, what time was your interview?

I don't have information on fingerprinting because we our interview is not until November.

Again, Congratulations
