    Hello!! Hope the process is smooth for you! I used to live in Cape Town.

    I think you need a supervisor. Someone is not understanding these documents.

    Do you have to visit each other, or is one way ok?

    It won't be a problem you have already met.

    https://www.uscis.gov/about-us/find-uscis-office/international-immigration-offices Looks like DCF is not available.

    The only other thing is to pay a company to get your Birth Certificate for you. The various companies can you usually secure one pretty fast. Are you close to a Home Affairs? Sometimes if you go down there and speak with someone you have better luck then on the phone.

    We did CR-1 and they were K-1 being interviewed next to us. So I believe that they are all grouped together.

    Administration process

    Might be a little delayed with the Thanksgiving holiday. But I would call where you had your medical. And follow up with the Consulate. Very good sign that she took your passport!

    Unabridged Birth Certificate takes forever because you have to deal with Useless Affairs. It really just depends on where you applied and how much you follow up on it. You HAVE to be proactive with them. Call them and follow up with them often.

    Unless it's changed the Embassy opens up at 1PM for the interviews. There will be a huge line of people waiting to get in the Embassy. I think everyone had a 1PM appt time. But again this was a couple years ago.

    They did several years ago. I went in with my husband. I brought my Passport to show that I was the American and they waived me through. I was able to be interviewed with my husband at the window.

    I would definitely use a company to help with the PCC. They can act as the middle man and can get it much faster then you will be able to on your own. One less thing to worry about!

    It took FOREVER for my husband to receive his Police Clearance. This was several years ago, but we waited months and months and then there was an issue with delivery. The company claimed that they had picked it up but they never did, and then they charged our credit card. It was a mess. I know several people that used bunnyhop.co.za and docassist.co.za and were very happy with the service.
