Has anyone else been requested to provide/send their unabridged marriage certificate ?
Our concern is that
1)After we submit this certificate, will it be all and then we will be granted a visa or will there be more documents requested or a second interview date? (The interviewer stated that there will be no second interview required)
On the pink form the lady gave to me whom conducted the interview there is only one box ticked (the long version - unabridged marriage certificate)
She said that after they receive this document they will then make the decision weather my visa is approved.
It seems this is the only thing that is still a issue, nothing else.
2)Is there anything we are missing, that we should take in to account that could delay the process more after this supposed to be final step? (anyone who as any experience of this situation)
3)My husband has dual citizenship (being both American and South African) we got married on his South African identity - will this course any issues or would they be able to prove the link without requesting the documents, given he went through the naturalization process 10+ years ago?
On our original short version marriage certificate it shows his identification as South African ID witch they have in their system and I had the original that was handed back to me on the day of the interview - they had no remarks about.
4) While we are in the unknowing of how long until the visa gets approved given (now that we have to submit a document we were not aware of , the unabridged marriage certificate that takes around 6 to 8 weeks minimum time, could take 1 year worst case) we are considering other options, I asked the interviewer if I could possibly apply for a holiday visa and carry out the process further in the US - she responded by saying that (yes I can but there is no grantee that I will be approved)
Firstly I can't without my passport that they have with them, but I'm not sure. Is there anyone who has experienced applying for a holiday visa after their interview and what was the outcome of that?
I highly apricate any feedback on these matters.
