Need step by step guide for bringing child

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi I found the guide here 

 

https://www.visajourney.com/content/childpet

 

But I'm confused about the steps once the petition is at the embassy. I understand that some steps happen at the some time for the petitioner and the beneficiary. Can I follow https://www.visajourney.com/examples/NVC_Process_Flowchart_v1-2.pdf

 

My son doesn't have a phone number or email address, how will the consulate contact him? Per letter? 

 

Embassy will be Managua.

Embassy won't be sending him anything. Though our situations are different (I did a K1) I can't imagine that the process is dissimilar.

 

When you get to the point to schedule an interview, you must first pay the visa fee; I did it via online with my credit card. Instructions for that are on visadocs so you'll be creating an account there as well. After the fee is processed (mine took about 12 hours) you will be able to schedule the fee yourself.

 

For packet 4 instructions just email the embassy directly and they will send you an electronic file. Again, that's what I did. The average Nicaraguan doesn't receive mail at their house unless they maintain a PO Box somewhere, that's especially if they are campesinos outside of the big towns/cities

 

Good luck!

correct! Once the visa fee is paid and processed, you can follow the instructions laid out on http://www.ustraveldocs.com/ in order to schedule the visa interview at the embassy yourself. I remember getting confused on the "receipt number" to use so read through carefully.

 

Here's some more consulate information. It's located in the "portals" area. https://www.visajourney.com/consulates/index.php?ctry=Nicaragua&cty=Managua. It has phone numbers (I wouldn't try to call tho), approved doctors for the medical exam and some other things to expect at the embassy.
