    Packet 3

    This whole process is just a nightmare! Keep looking multiple times a day and you will eventually find one.

    Do you by any chance know the number to contact them? How long have they had your petition?

    Packet 3

    Yes we filed K 1. I’m just planning on scheduling the appointment and hope packet 3 is received before the appointment date.
  4. Good morning everyone, Is anyone from Ghana still waiting for packet 3 email? It’s been 2 months since they received our petition and we still haven’t received ours yet. Please share if you are in the same boat. Thanks.
  5. Okay, thank you for your input and yes it is just the passport that has the wrong place of birth.
  6. So we found out the place of birth listed in my fiancé’s passport is incorrect after we made the payment for the interview. We haven’t completed the DS 160 yet. We have contacted the Ghana passport services and we were advised that they can issue a new passport but that will have a different passport number( which is the passport number on the receipt). My dilemma is if we have to pay the fee again with the new passport number or can we schedule the interview with receipt number with already have which has the previous passport. I’m so confused because we definitely do not just want to throw away 240 dollars. Please any advice would be helpful.
  7. Thank you for responding and I hope it doesn’t take 6 months otherwise we are very screwed.
  8. Oh wow. What a nightmare! We will get on it right away. My main concern was keeping the same passport number. Thank you for responding.
  9. Good morning everyone, I just noticed this morning that the place of birth in my fiancé’s passport is incorrect. He had his passport renewed and even provided the expired passport for renewal yet the Ghana passport services still messed up. He has had the passport for months and never noticed the mistake until this morning. My questions are: 1. Can the mistake be corrected without having him being issued a whole new passport with a different passport number? His current passport doesn’t expire until 2023. 2. We have already made the payment for the visa fee and have his passport number already on the receipt. In the event that he cannot simply correct the place of birth( with Ghana you never really know), can he go back to the bank and have them issue a new receipt with the new passport number? Thank you all so much. I’m just glad we found the mistake before submitting the DS 160. Thank you.
  10. You’re welcome and yes you will need a lot of patience. Also you will probably have to send a new letter of intent which is within 30 days of his interview. I will also recommend sending him your last 3 years of tax returns just in case because Ghana embassy can be very unpredictable.
  11. Hello, Start gathering your financial information such as 3 years tax transcripts, pay stubs, letter of employment etc. You can also complete the 134 form and make sure your fiancé has an updated birth certificate. Since you’re going through the Ghana consulate, it’s going to be a while until the embassy contacts you. After you have been contacted by the embassy via email, then you can start with the medicals and the police report. You probably have another 3 or more months before getting to this stage. My case has been at the embassy for more than a month and we are yet to hear from the embassy. You will also need to gather proof of ongoing relationship. Good luck and message me if you have anymore inquiries.

    Need more info pls

    No, I haven’t heard from the embassy but they updated my case yesterday from in transit to ready. All we can do after this is wait to be contacted by the embassy. I hope this helps.

    I’m in the same boat as you. My K1 was sent two weeks ago on the 26th of June. I am also trying to gather the information while we wait. From what I’ve heard, the embassy can take up to 2 or 3 months to contact us.
