  1. Did you try using a different browser? @SusieQQQ just mentioned her passport applic not being trackable when using safari.
  2. Was there a usps tracking number for your application when you sent it off? I think it's a bit long for your application to not show up online, considering you mailed it out on Nov. 5. I had mine mailed overnight+expedited. I think my applic showed up on the second/third business day after receipt and received the passport book (by overnight mail) 9 calendar days after mailing my application. I had paid extra for mailing overnight both times and expedite processing. there was a time that I thought that my passport was lost in the mail so after that, less commute time the better...
  3. You should check the immigration timelines here on VJ. Some people in Hartford finished before 8 months, while others before 10 months. If your applic does not have any hiccups, then your process should be very fast. Mine in Jacksonville was estimated 1 year, finished in 10 months, and was still one of the slowest over there. Most finish by 6 months in Jax. Good luck and smooth sailing!
  4. If you have USPS Informed Delivery, the NC shows up as 'mail with no image.' Some members reported getting theirs as long as 2 weeks after passport book/card... the final stress of the immigration journey.

    Congratulations! USEM should have known that in the first place. So are they're going to issue the visa now? For K1 visa related questions, I'm afraid i'm just a stranger passing by. Good luck and best wishes! Hope you get the visa soon!

    I'm sorry to say that I don't have any personal experience here. I would suggest to send in that request form by certified mail. You can also try sending them a fax and hopefully they answer you back with better ways to contact them. Maybe other VJ members have better recommendations in this matter. I wish you the very best!
  7. looks like conditional bar. to apply for N-400, it seems like you have to wait 5 years since last use if based on 5-yr residency or 3 years if based on marriage to USC. https://www.uscis.gov/policy-manual/volume-12-part-f-chapter-5 https://citizenpath.com/faq/good-moral-character-requirement/

    This might be a start. Good luck! https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/application/medical-police/police-certificates/how/northern-marina-islands.html
  9. fyi. looks like just the I-94W if driving to US (for citizens of VWP countries) https://help.cbp.gov/s/article/Article-1132?language=en_US If I am in Canada or Mexico and want to drive to the U.S., do I need to apply for ESTA? If you are a citizen of a country that participates in the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), and you enter the U.S. by land from Mexico or Canada, you are only required to complete the paper I-94W form at the land border crossing. ESTA is currently required for air and cruise ship travel only. Note: VWP citizens do not need an ESTA to travel on the ferries between Vancouver and Victoria, BC and Washington state. They are treated as a land border port. If coming by sea, as long as it is a cruise ship, you will need to apply for ESTA (check the ESTA website for approved cruise lines.) If you are coming in a private sailing vessel, ESTA is not an issue since you must have a visa to arrive in the U.S. by that mode. VWP is not approved for travel to the U.S. on a pleasure boat. The fee is comprised of two parts: Processing Charge -- All applicants requesting an electronic travel authorization are charged for the processing of the application. The fee is $4.00. Authorization Charge -- If your application is approved and you receive authorization to travel to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program, an additional $10.00 will be charged to your credit card. If your electronic travel authorization is denied, you are only charged for the processing of your application. CBP is not responsible for any additional fees that may be charged by your credit card company for the transaction.
  10. just an fyi acc to I-751 instructions... Notice to Those Making Payment by Check. If you send us a check, USCIS will convert it into an electronic funds transfer (EFT). This means we will copy your check and use the account information on it to electronically debit your account for the amount of the check. The debit from your account will usually take 24 hours and your bank will show it on your regular account statement. You will not receive your original check back. We will destroy your original check, but will keep a copy of it. If USCIS cannot process the EFT for technical reasons, you authorize us to process the copy in place of your original check. If your check is returned as unpayable, USCIS will re-submit the payment to the financial institution one time. If the check is returned as unpayable a second time, we will reject your petition and charge you a returned check fee. Question: When they process the second application, would USCIS see that they've already received an application under the same applicant name? Just curious....
  11. Hoping to have my oath held in a city where oaths are more often, I asked the IO during the naturalization interview last year if I could have it somewhere else. Quick answer - - - No. But hey, no harm in asking your IO about it.
  12. I think you should at least check out the NY Passport Agency. Check its newer Google Reviews. Seems like some people got their passport the same day or the next day....this might work for you unless your interview appt is mid afternoon and your flight is early the next morning.
  13. Thanks for your response! phone photo meaning someone took your picture? does it have to conform to passport pic specs?
  14. yup, always check if the TV needs a transformer or not. Not a big deal though in the Philippines. it's nice in the Philippines that you can just get an abs-cbn box for less than P2000 and have access to some local channels without any monthly payment.
