This question has been asked and answered many dozens of times. Searching, or even scrolling, would have yielded the answer.


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).

Thanks.

Since you are the Global Moderator, we have been trying to update the information on the Bridgetown, Barbados Embassy page. We keep getting an error message. Maybe you can help fix that issue.

Yes, happiness268, thanks for bringing this up.

TBoneTX,

Please let us know how to fix the Barbados Embassy portal page. It is GROSSLY out of date with HIGHLY INCORRECT information, and as such, it needs to be fixed *immediately*. Please let us know what can be done.

The Barbados Embassy's website is out of date, they refuse to take phone calls and only sporadically respond to emails. VJ is a boon to the thousands of people on this site who need information and thus, the Barbados Embassy portal page must be fixed so those of us who have first hand experience can post our information. With all due respect, it's not fair that the VJ members from the primarily Eastern Caribbean countries that the Barbados embassy serves do not have the same access to information that other embassy portal users have--but we are told to do searches for information. Yes, I know the POE one-way ticket entry information is non-country specific, however, other information IS germane to specific countries. If we are being told to do searches, then we need to be able to find answers to our questions just like others can.

What are the steps that can be taken to fix the Barbados Embassy portal's problems? In the recent past, I've asked for assistance in updating the page to no avail. The data on the Barbados Embassy page is three years old. Please let us know the solutions that are at hand; thank you in advance.

Respectfully,

Lesa/trublubu2

Thanks.
