    Englishsammy got a reaction from DaisyJ in Medical Exam Prep HELP RE DOCUMENTS Required pls!   
    My parents just had there's at the end of July and they just took the print out vaccinations from the GP and the medical summary sounds similar to what you will be taking and they were fine and they had no issues.  They just took their glasses with no prescriptions and they just used them to read the board on the wall for the vision test.  
     
    I can't say much about your medical issue but the summary seems like it would be fine especially as you don't have medicine for it etc but maybe someone else can advise on that.

    Englishsammy got a reaction from Chancy in Interview for Parents: how to prepare?   
    My parents just had their interview in London.  They were asked when I moved and why, if I had kids and do they live with me, they asked who my husband was (they used his name and said who is he), when was the last time they saw me/visited, how often do we communicate (they didn't ask for evidence) and when they planned to move.  My parents said everyone was very friendly and it didn't seem like they were trying to catch them out.

    My parents were able to get in for a medical within a few days - they received the email on 13th July stating their interview would be on the 3rd August. They called the medical place and were even offered a slot the next day so hopefully it should be ok for everyone.

    I would give it a try! Include everything you can - maybe emails from daycare providers stating they are full etc and make a case that it would greatly assist your family in terms of emotional and financial. Of course it is not a work visa but family support really helps and financial hardship is one of the reasons and this ties in.  I would just send as much as you can with a clear explanation.  The worst they can say is no...
     
    My mom was Dq'd in Jan and my dad in March and we received their interview yesterday for August 3rd.  Just for info if it helps at all.  It seems a lot of marriage ones got interviews with similar DQ times as my parents.

    Hi, we had our IR-5 approved by NVC in June 2020. 
    We have just received letters from NVC advising us of our interview date which is in June and our medicals are booked beforehand. Have a slight issue getting an updated Police Certificate though (the previous one had expired)..and had to pay an extra £40 each to get them expedited or they would not arrive in time for medical! 
    The Embassy seem to be getting through the applications quite quickly now, especially since the tier system was introduced.
    I'm sure you will get an email soon. :)

    Hi everyone. Long time no see 😊 I hope yall are well.
    My mom and dad had their joint interview at the HCMC consulate on April 19, and I was asked to resubmit my i-864, which I uploaded to the NVC portal on the same day. We patiently waited for a couple weeks, and got the good news today from the consulate (they called my parents): "Your immigrant visa applications are approved. Please mail in your passports for visa issuance." 🎉
    I was quite surprised on how fast their applications moved. I wish everyone a pleasant visa journey as well.

    Cheers ... ordinarily this is quick since we got it expedited due to the diagnosis. Just feels like it's dragging for us. 
     
    Hope yours is smooth and quick. Still kicking myself over birth certificate snafu.

    He has a criminal record and was sentenced to more than 3 years in prison. The UK is very harsh with criminal records and there are no “waivers of ineligibility” as there are here for foreign spouses with criminal records. And there is no time limit either. My husband committed his crime in 1990, more than 20 years before I even met him. If he lived to be 100 he still won’t be able to travel to the UK, not even to visit, under the current laws. 
     
    Whether you have citizenship or not through your mother will depend on when you were born as there was a change in the law regarding citizenship by descent.

    Sorry to hear your story. Moving across the world is complex and everyone is different mentally and emotionally. Are you not able to spend some time visiting her out there? Whatever happens, I hope your can move forward with your life. 
     
    We actually moved back to England in 2008 (I was an exchange student in 2005, moved as a K1 in 2006) luckily before they changed the U.K. immigration laws so my husband has his U.K. citizenship. After about 5 years there we realized we wanted to return to California for good and we moved in 2016. I think living in both countries and each spending time in each other’s homelands really helped us as a family blend our cultures and traditions. I mean he’d never trade fish and chips for an In and Out burger but he does miss England too. 
     
    I still say we don’t do that in England lol but I love it here and so do our kids - they are so invested in school and their sports which their peers in England don’t seem to be (just my experience and seeing friends kids etc, I’m sure this isn’t the case for everyone). We are in our own fixer upper now and have applied for my parents to move over!

    We only had two years of taxes based on when we moved and she acknowledged that in the interview and it was not an issue. I showed joint insurance and bank account but not the mortgage and that was fine, the officer never asked about in my interview on Tuesday. I uploaded family pictures too and she thought they were cute lol.
