  1. Hi all my wait is finally over my husband arrived via JFK last night. Visajourney has been such a great help to me. If anyone has any questions feel free to msg me
  2. Hi, did you pay the fee before or after arriving in the US?
  3. For us they didnt tell us they needed new marriage certificate and birth certificate. We happened to check the ceac website even though we emailed them
  4. Wonderful.. we had our interview at pos on dec 3rd. Let me know if you have any questions
  5. I used my husband's name even though my name had not yet changed on my official documents. Its ok, they understand it takes time for the name change but once you are married then she can use her married name.
  6. Hi all, update. My husband's visa was issued today in ceac. Our interview date was dec 3rd. We had to reupload our marriage certificate and birth certificate which we did on dec 19th. The embassy finaly accepted the documents yesterday, we went into AP status this morning and then by after noon visa was issued. They called my husband to let him know he can pick it up on Tuesday since embassy is closed on Monday.
  7. Hello all I did this last year for my husband. I sent in his passport along with paper tax forms and the W7 form, it took about 2 months. It was done during the uscis process. Our country does not certify the passport and the us embassy said it did not do it as well. Our only option was to send the original. I didnt send in a self addressed envelope but thankfully the passport came back in one peace. We got the itin number back before the passport
  8. I figured the holidays made things slow but maybe the shut down is slowing things down.. I'm completely lost
  9. Hi, last time they checked the case was dec 28th, probably because I sent the emabssy an email. Prior to that dec 18th. I haven't been reading up on this site recently so I dont know if anyone else mentioned a slow down in processing at the embassies.
  10. Oh wow you are still waiting as well. So are we. We were approved on dec 3rd and heard nothing for 2 weeks. Then sent an email to the emabssy they changed the status of our civil docs on ceac to marriage certificate and birth certificate submitted at interview different from the one we brought to the interview. We got extra copies from the registrar that had different barcodes only difference. We uploaded the correct ones on dec 19th still waiting. The embassy never told us they needed those new docs the status just showed those documents were rejected in ceac. We've sent about 2 emails since then no response. Not sure what more to do but wait at this point
  11. I just uploaded the documents and submitted it on ceac yestersay.. we emailed the embassy and no response as yet.. I hope they respond soon We emailed them yesterday hope they respond soon
  12. Hello all, My husband had his CR1 interview on December 3rd. No Visa issued as yet. I was checking the ceac status update and it remained “Ready” status since the interview. I decided to log in to view the ceac account and realized the Civil documents showed invalid status (it was previously accepted). It shows our marriage certificate and his birth certificate were rejected after interview. The notes now say “Documents presented at interview is different copy than the one uploaded. Uploading new marriage/birth certificate” (I believe this is the case because we had two copies issued from the registrar one he kept and the one I kept apparently has different bar code numbers, the one I uploaded is a different bar code number to the one he took to the interview) The embassy has not told us anything, we just happened to see this. I am not sure if it means we have to upload the document or if the embassy is doing it because the wording is “Uploading” as if they will be doing it. Does anyone know if I am supposed to do it or If they do it?
  13. My status never changed from ready.. it never even said AP, status last updated on dec 6th
  14. Today makes it exactly 2 weeks since our interview.. still waiting for ceac to update and say visa issued.
