 I had my interview on the 24th of January in Lagos, Nigeria. It went well and I was approved. The following questions was asked below:

 

Questions:

1. Who petition for you
2. What does your mum do?
3. How many siblings do you have in the U.S
4. Where do you live?
5. Have you live somewhere else?
6. Are you married?
7. Do you have any kid?
8. Gave me a form to declare that if I should get married before I enter the U.S my visa would null and void.
9. Gave me a form about paying for my greencard before leaving.
10. Told me my passport would ne ready in 10 working days.

 

My passport was sent to DHL 3 days after the interview. I am really grateful I found this forum in June, because it actually helped me a lot to be informed about each step before it unfolds. I wish I found it earlier though, we would have salvaged my brothers petition, because we went to alert NVC when he got married as he was also under unmarried children. But as the Lord would have it, my sister also petitioned for him and the priority date is Jan 2006 so we are patiently waiting for them to contact him with a welcome letter, although I know that category does not move a lot and the average wait time is 13 years.

 

I pray you all get interview date and get approved as well, and I pray the new Immigration law put other family members into consideration, because its not good for families to live apart.

 

P.S whats the average wait time for SSN?
