    JeanneAdil got a reaction from millefleur in K-1 or K-3 Visa During Covid Delays   
    K1 use to be faster 
    but even pre covid many K1's faced a denial and the couple had to marry and file CR1 (and this is after a long wait for the AP process in India)
     
    CR1 stands a much better chance of an approval if you have no issues like:
    1.  big age difference of over 10 years
    2.  difference of religions
    3.  family does not approve (as evidenced by no photos of India family with USC)
    4.  woman can not bear children
    5.  couple has not spent quality time together as evidenced by short visits or only 1 to meet)
    6.  marry on the 1st trip to meet each other
    7.  criminal background 
     
    either one you apply for ,  expect a 2 year process to get to interview (18 to 24 months ) and then the extra time for security checks in India
     
    read the posts here on VJ from other India members (hit the word portal above as it takes u straight to India if u are logged in)
    read the embassy reviews 
    familiarize yourself with the guides above and / or the USCIS guides to go thru both processes and the income level guidelines to met that requirement

    JeanneAdil got a reaction from 4thntr in I129F beneficiary address update - when and should I update   
    after the initial receipt letter all notices will be email (to the USC petitioner)
    and u send on to the beneficary in that country 
    that is for USCIS and NVC and embassy notices
     
    what the issue is sending the original tax papers and any original forms from the USA that may be require for the interview 
     
    need a good delivery company other than postal like UPS which says they guarantee delivery in India

    yes
    all they care about is the name on the card matches  the person legal to use it
    the Number ,  expiration date (current to use) and security code
    they like money in any form

    JeanneAdil got a reaction from AKN2 in Do we have a real chance?   
    you can not request this
    has to be done by USC
    the expedite is for her problems and she has to give the evidence to support it
     
    she is getting the best care here in the US and at this time she needs doctors 
     
    would you have a dl for her state?
    a car to drive?
    be able to see her if she already has the 1 visitor we are allowed into hospital?
    a job to help with finances?
    the means to be added to her health care insurance?
     
    Right now the emphasis needs to be on her getting the care she needs 
     
    sorry for your issues but right now she comes 1st

    unfotrunately our news is focused on the negative but reading the report from Rice University it says the following:
     
    According to Rice University research, Nigerian Americans are the most educated group in the United States.[21][22]
    According to the 2008-2012 American Community Survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, 61.4% of Nigerian Americans aged 25 years or older hold a bachelor's degree or higher, compared to 28.5% of the total U.S. population.[2
     
    So,  when he comes , encourage him to excel and just love what the 2 of u an accomplish together

    No, no issue. Get the new passport and bring both the old and new one to your interview.  You are certainly not the first that has had to update a passport during this arduous process.

    I plan to get one of those before I travel.  Another VJ member from my home country got their COVID vaccination record added onto their government-issued yellow book.  I'm concerned that the wallet-sized card I was given at the vaccination center may not be accepted for US travel.  Hopefully the yellow book will be more credible.

    JeanneAdil got a reaction from Adventine in How did you pay for your CR1/IR1 visa?   
    When the immigrant is from a country with low wages,  i would suspect the burden is assumed by USC (like me)
    with the understanding that they are coming for a bona fida marriage and will work together in the USA to help each other with finances
     
    and yes,  some of us,  have had to show commingling of finances like i added spouse to IRS tax returns,   to my bank account and to a utility bill and deed to the house / all before he came to the US
     
    since it is so hard for a engaged person to get a tourist visa for the US,  most of us (USC'S)  have had to bear the financial burden of travel to the immigrant's country to meet and marry/or to meet in a 3rd country for marriage
     
    any money i paid out for fees and /or travel  was evident as i used my bank debit card
     
    I stayed in the family home when i was  in Morocco so we split the cost of food,  renting a car,,  traveling by bus,  restaurants, even the translations of documents to English,   so we had already shared costs in small ways

    JeanneAdil got a reaction from Mike E in From vaccines to testing: What travelers need to know before the new US travel system on Nov. 8   
    sorry but all i  got when vaccinated was an index card with information / plain old paper index card
     
    with today's computers and printers it would be easy to do a fake one
     
    there was a 16 year old that lost his job at McDonald's and copied the logo from a food bag and made out fake paychecks for himself to the tune of over $5000 before  he was caught 
    we can do anything on a computer 
     
    so, how do i really know the people around me are really vaccinated ?    i will keep wearing a mask

    Those technically already exist and I have one of those from a company who specializes in foreign travel to places where disease is rampant (I think it's called Passport Health?) It's just a yellow fold-out card, also has no anti-forgery or protective printing on it. It looks kind of like this, but it's a little booklet with multiple pages. The doctors put stickers in it of the vaccines you received, it looks kind of like this:
     

     

     
    It seems like this yellow booklet is standardized around the world so I don't get why we can't just implement it for Covid. If it's worked before, seems logical to just continue that.

    first i am very sorry for your heartbreak
    i only hope you had proper information about him and you didn't act in haste
    my Adil did not call me right after interview as he had to travel long distances to get to embassy and home
     
    if he was using u,  u did the right thing and now must follow thru and divorce and move on
     
    and even if the embassy was to issue the visa,  they can revoke it (happened to one man in Morocco)
    again   i am so sorry for all that has happened to your marriage 
    you are very lucky he did not come and then leave u and stick you with the I 864

    Here is the problem with expedites.... they are not required to do anything with it. It is an ask. It is not an official process. I don't even think they are technically required to respond to expedite request.
     
    With an expedite, all you are doing is asking and hoping you get approved. There is no obligation from them to approve it.

    JeanneAdil got a reaction from Sofian in Error in Marriage Certificate   
    No,   after u divorce ,  u are single again
    on my marriage papers (Arabic) the court clerk used my maiden name (like on birth certificate they had) and all other (passports and DL, etc ) were in married name of my late husband and that is how i signed .   no issues
     
    just make sure the English translation document submitted to NVC is the same as the original  she will take to interview
    one person had an issued with 2 different translations (done by 2 different certified agencies)
     
    important thing on the marriage certificate is the raised stamp on original, all the other stamps showing recorded certificate and believe it or not , the paper size of the Morocco certificate as the paper size is different than US
     
    Make sure she has original of your divorce papers and in case they are kept with immigration,  u should have a set for your records 
     
    AND PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ,  DO A TIMELINE AND KEEP IT CURRENT    / this is the only way we can help sometimes

    u should understand a visa is never really approved till it is issued
    and u are told over and over ,  don't sell things,  don't book airline tickets,  don''t book the wedding TILL U HAVE THE VISA IN HAND
     
    since its the SD ,  you'll probably get the passport and visa but you're cutting the timeline close
