  1. do you have any documents to substantiate your claim? If so follow it. Otherwise you should bring this up at the interview with the CO and let them know that you are confused on how to answer that question.
  2. Yes. It will change to "issued" when your visa is complete. Maybe a week to 10 days to your place. Your mileage may vary.
  3. Join us here for the phase of your journey.
  4. You should visit and become familiar with all the information that is used in the next stage. Also, review the information in the bottom half of this post. I have information to share but I'm not about to hunt down your embassy information. Can you please complete your profile. Many of our answers are predicated on the information you supply in your profile. When we look at the left column and can't determine your timeline or your Embassy it's hard for us to give you a factual answer. If you look at the profile of others here, they have a flag for their country, so it makes it easy for us to reply as we can quickly determine your Embassy. Our answers will sometimes be tailored to a specific Embassy hence the reason for you to complete your profile. So, if you could help yourself out and complete your profile that sure would help us out when we want to reply to your question with factual information. Go to the top right of this page select your name (it's on the upper right-hand corner)>my profile>[below your picture on the right column] edit my profile. Scroll to the bottom and fill in "Immigration Info". There now we can better serve you. Thanks
  5. The best thing you can do is head on over to this thread and make yourself comfortable and knowledgeable from others who are processing from SA. Link is here. http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/663264-south-african-k1-visa-applicants/ Here is the P3 letter for South Africa https://drive.google.com/file/d/1eFx68_qjxcdedQnvDkdB5A0oKTew17VW/view?usp=sharing Some additional information to be aware of: Best thing for you all to do is get your police certificates BUT they cannot be older than 6 months. If you were 16 and older and lived in another country besides S.A., then you will need a police certificate from there as well, so be prepared. Start gathering documents, originals of birth certificates, divorce decree's, pictures and other evidence of your relationship that was not included in your original package (since it will take some time, they still want to see you are still an active couple). Any passport photos cannot be older than 6 months old. When you get your NOA2, give it about 10 days before you call NVC and asking status of your case. You can always call USCIS for your status, but they are not the friendliest and I wouldn't even but them until at least 90 days minimum, I highly doubt they have caught up with the backlog, especially with all the immigration and DACA stuff going on. The NVC is much friendlier, when you get there and will help you with no problem with any update you are asking. But normally when you get your NOA2, like I said give it at least 10 days before you call them. They didn't get our package for at least 14 days. After you get your NOA2 and your package goes to NVC, it goes pretty quick, so use this time wisely to gather all your documents. The petitioner needs to provide pay stubs (3 months), I-134 Aff. of Support, Employment verification letter, VA eligibility letter, if applicable, to show as part of income and last 3 years of tax records. Then once NVC processes your package, a medical appointment can be made, you only have 2 options, one in Joburg and one in Cape Town. My fiancé went to Joburg. It's a 2 day process, but spread between 3 days. You go one day for bloodwork and x-rays and the next for shots and discussion with the dr., so plan on that. Your finance, not the petitioner, will need to fill out the Visa app online, DS-160 and pay the fee. Make sure you set up your online account correctly and schedule the interview. They only do K1 visa interviews there at the consulate the last 2 weeks of the month and only on Tues and Thursdays. So plan wisely.
  6. Submit an inquiry at the CGI website, tell them your case number and your name and your new application ID, they will correct it. Https:/cgifederal.secure.force.com
  7. Congratulations. Your road has been filled with twists and turns that very few have traveled but you have shown the way. Your experience will be shared I am sure to those who also face difficult times. All the best to the two of you.
  8. Once you get the NOA2 join us over here
  9. You should look into using a service like DHL, FedEd or others that are reliable. The only document that needs to be mailed (possibly) is the I-134 because of the need for a "wet" signature. Call your embassy and see if the "wet" (original) signature is required. If not then no need to mail anything to the beneficiary as everything can be sent via email and printed. I would love to know what their answer is if you do indeed call. Thanks.
  10. Your to early for the scheduling of the interview date. Once they have your physical file and have checked you in and set your record on CEAC to "ready" they will not send you anything. If you look through this thread, I have posted the links to a copy of the P3 and other useful links. I'm depending on you to do some of the heavy lifting.
  11. Yes it can be issued that fast. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR! Go get the passport. Congratulations!

    You can call the Embassy and have this cancelled. SLEC will only cancel an appointment if you go into DOT.
  13. You don't have a CCN so leave it blank or N/A.
