2nd Interview and Medical Reports

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The US Embassy in Lagos is really, really cruel to those applying for family visas in Nigeria. I have been on K1 visa journey since January 24, 2011! Her interview was scheduled for September 28, 2011 but she was pregnant and had teh baby 13 days before the interview so we applied for the CRBA and Us passport for my daughter. She was told the visa was approved but could not be issued untill the CRBA was approved as stated on the 221(g) letter given to her. We received an email sometimes in December 2011 that the CRBA and passport were ready for pickup. Fortunatley I was in Nigeria around this time so we both went to the Embassy only to find out that the passport was ready but not the CRBA; note that the passport was issued after the CRBA, yet CRBA was not ready! We sent e mail to the embassy. I believe the embassy misplaced the CRBA and the reason I believe this is because my I got an email to come bring my daughter and fiancee for the CRBA and passport processing; so I called the embassy about the email and was told it was an error as the CRBA and passport were already approved on November 3rd 2011 and that the processor failed to move from pending to processed! Anyway, we informed the Visa section of the CRBA and passport approval and she was scheduled for February 27, 2012 which in itself was too damn long!. When my fiancee went to pick up the CRBA and passport, she inquired if anyting else was needed for her rescheduled interview on Feb 2775, she was told No after reviewing her file. So she went there for her interview. To our utter schock she was told the medical reports have expired and have to re do them! She was pissed to say the least and complained that why didn't say that on the e mail sent to her and while she also inquired in person. The CO could care less and he just said the medical reports need to be done again and she can return when ready with her passport. No apology, Nothing! So have to spend another N22,000. My fiancee met another person at the clinic from another city of over 5hours journey with the same story of not being informed of the expiration of the medical reports only to find out when he got to the embassy. My only consolation is that she will get her visa somtimes next week and will be here soon by the special grace of God. My conclusion is that is either these people are really cold hearted or just stupidly incompetent. If you are scheduled for a return interview, please examine your medical reports, if more than six months they will ask you to go and redo it. So please take note!
