Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Nigeria
Timeline

Hello,

I am engaged to a Nigerian man. We filed for the K-1 visa and were denied in November of 2011. Since he has been unable to find work, we gathered together all of our resources and sent him to Malaysia to work. Now that he is there, he is in need of funds to pay the school fee so he can get a student visa to work. We are at our wits end trying to come up with the $2,000 needed for this. We have tried every option we can think of. Friends, family, churches, agencies, charities, philantropists, celebrities, but no one seems to want to help. the problem is that they dont understand the importance of it all, and they dont understand how tedious and complicated the immigration system is. If anyone has any ideas, ANY AT ALL, please please let me know. We are desperate for him to get this chance to work so that we can continue on this journey. We are 2 years into this, and we will not stop until we are together.

Sorry about your Situation.But the best Financial Assistant comes from People you know directly or indirectly.

Talking about Moving to Malaysia to study,what stopped your man from studying in Nigeria or was he just in need to leave Nigeria.

Beneficiaries Financial Status does not Matter in Immigrating to the USA.

Why were you guys denied

Do you think his staying or studying in Malaysia would pave route to moving down to the USA

Note that,wherever you might be DENIED USA Visa,the record is available worldwide,so you cant conceive information

I will advice you look deeper into friends and Families for Financial assistance or you the Petition can pick up one more Job (Just my tot)

Hope things becomes easier for you guys

Well, we decided to send him to Malaysia to work. The easiest way was to get a student visa, which allows him to work there while studying. We were denied for "immigration purposes only" . In less than 5 minutes of the interveiw without even looking at one peice of evidence we had. we have no issues that should keep us apart. It is a matter of the immigration system being broken. That is a whole different story. Right now, we are looking for any thing that might help us get funding fast.

I could be wrong, but are you going to try to file k1 through Malaysia? Won't that be harder?

well, we are not sure about that yet. first we need to get him the student visa so he can work. then when we get a little money saved up we will decide if it is better to file from there, or go back to Naija to file. First things first

It sounds like the right choice is to head back to Nigeria. I was reading this week that the economy has been on the improve there at a good pace.

An exceedingly good pace, especially in Abuja.

Unfortunately though, unlike here in the USA and most 1st world countries, one needs the right connection to tap into the upwardly mobile network.

If you contact the Nigerian embassy there , they should assist a Nigerian national that is in need. If he doesn't have the money to go to school nor the visa to work there isn't much sense in staying.


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

once again, we have no money. It will cost far more to get him back to Naija, than to get him into school so that he can work. At least if he works for a while, he can afford his trip back.

Hello Olaskween, sorry about your situation. But I will like to point out some facts to you.

FYI: My spouse is in Malaysia also.

No 1: Students in Malaysia cannot work, the only way they can have access to work for just 6months or less is through Industrial attachment and school will sponsor that, but your spouse will pay for the form. After 6months, the IT is over.

No 2: If you and your spouse cannot cope with the financial issues (rent, food, transportation, school fees, etc) whilst he is in Malaysia, its better he goes back home. Bcos even if you borrow from your family everyday, one day will come that they will say NO.

You have to handle this together - you and your spouse. Living in Malaysia is not kids play, its expensive and school fees are high too. Tell him to go home and hustle, bcos most naija people there have spoilt the place with different bad activities.

Good luck to both of you.

You've been denied. So what have you done to foll

ow up and maybe have a case to appeal?

Have you called your state rep, senator, congress person?

You would be surprised what they may can uncover. "For immigration purposes" is a broad stroke and well you need to follow up and find out what was presented in your evidence or said at the interview that made them decide that.

I'm not understanding the moving to Malaysia though that's expensive and you didn't seem to research so now is your fiancé stuck or what's up?
