Hello Guys,

So happy to be part of this great group , with all the information i have gotten from this site, i must confess, my confidence has increased. I am currently based in the UK ,I got married to my wife last year and I am originally from Nigeria, but currently based in the UK studying. We waited 5 months after we got married, before filing for the i 130 (January 2012) and i129 (Feb 2012). Now , this question is directed mainly at UK based filers:

1)I want to know how early i can apply for my police report (I have lived in the UK for 5 years).

2) Are there any vaccinations I can right now have before my medical is scheduled? I was thinking , this will make my medical easier.

Thanks for the reply.

Hi ,

I’m also a Nigerian based in the UK , I have dual citizenship but applied for the K1 on my Nigerian passport.

You will need a police report from Nigeria and the UK. The Nigerian one is valid for 3 months but the UK one is valid for 12 months. You should apply for the UK police report when your NOA2 date is close.

I just applied for mine last week , I got my NOA2 yesterday so the timing was perfect.

For vaccinations you may be able get them done at your GP , here is a link that discusses what is needed after your NOA2


Hope this helps.
