  1. My fiance got an email yesterday that Dakar, Senegal was stopping interviews for the foreseeable future. There were open interview slots on the scheduling calendar for the end of April and May, so I signed him up for one, but it was cancelled overnight. I guess they're not accepting any scheduling of interviews at this time, even though the system lets you? Nothing to do but wait, I guess.
  2. Everything you need to know should be here https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/Supplements/Supplements_by_Post/DKR-Dakar.html Also, my fiance just did his medical exam at Dr. El Hadi's and said everyone was very nice. He was also asked for confirmation of his interview date. He showed the email from ais.usvisa-info.com and that worked.
  3. My fiance was mailed a physical letter from the NVC on the day our application was shipped to the consulate. It arrived about 2 weeks later. I don't see why they didn't email. I provided our email addresses per the instructions in the PDF, but I guess it didn't work.

      The NVC sends different notifications based on which consulate the application is being sent to? That seems odd.

      Here's what "should" happen. But even this doesn't always occur.

      NVC sends a physical letter to the petitioner to notify them that the petition was sent to the consulate.

      The consulate sends either a physical letter and/or email to the beneficiary when the petition arrives. This will either be a packet 3 to submit documents prior to scheduling the interview, or a packet 4 with interview instructions (where you would self-schedule the appointment).

      Well yes, that much I have gathered from reading here. But for consulate-specific processes for K1s at Dakar, there only seems to be about one person a year who documents it, and it's a bit different each time. So I'm writing these notes of our experience to be the 2020 version. 


      It is not clear to me if I should even expect a P3 or not, let alone how and to whom it will arrive.

  4. Just in case this information helps anyone in the future, I wanted to say that when my fiance took his printed out slip from ais.usvisa-info.com to Ecobank to pay the $265 (currently 165,000cfa) for the fiance visa, he was told by the teller that the numbers on his slip were not working. I emailed the usvisa-info help email and they got back to me in under an hour and told me I could generate a new number on ais.usvisa-info.com. That finally worked when we tried it about 24 hours after generating the first one, and he took the second number to the bank and was able to pay with that.
  5. @Greenbaum do you have the P3 for Dakar, Sénégal, available to share?
  6. Apparantly the packets are all sent to the petitioner via email now so you should have no troubles with that. (But I'm only slightly ahead of you in the K1 process so I can't speak yet from personal experience. ) For my fiance, I put down the address of where he works as a mailing address and just put the city and neighborhood for his home address. Once the application reached the NVC I updated his email with them, so hopefully he'll get any updates along with me.
  7. This was pretty much exactly my RFE though. I had passport stamps and a handful of other proof, but no photos, and they said basically "we believe you were in Senegal during the dates you claim and that you spent that time at your fiance's place of work, and that they work there, but it isn't proof that you actually met." So 🤷‍♀️ fair enough, but passport stamps aren't a sure thing.
