  1. When you go to edit your timeline, you need to select the correct country in 2 places "Beneficiary's Country" and "US Embassy" to fix this.
  2. Congratulations on the receipt of your IL and Goodluck.

    Please did you expedite your interview. I am trying to figure out the DQ’d month that is receiving IL.

      Trying to figure out the IR DQ’d month receiving interview appointment in the Lagos consulate.

      We expedited.

      I thought they were about mid December 2020 but someone else stated that they had gotten to January 2021.

      Thanks so much for your quick response. Wishing you success. 

  3. Best guess is an error. The create dates for both images above are different.
  4. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/nvc-timeframes.html As of May 9th, documents submitted on Feb 21st are being reviewed.
  5. As has already been mentioned several time, K-1 is more expensive than CR1. If you switch to the CR1, you will come closer to the cost of going through with K-1. This early in the process, I think you should calculate the effort involved in terms of cost, time, processes and proceed as you think fit. If a "stable union' is used to get benefits as a married couple, then I think you are walking too close to the line for comfort. Search the forum, some people had engagement parties and were considered too married for K1. Stable union sounds even more than engage especially with what you plan to use it for. My 2 cents .... no stable union
  6. We have not gotten a single "60 days notice" from NVC and out petition has been pending for over a year. I will not put any stock in those emails. I would bet you that they are automated.
  7. My spouse is vaccinated and he has visited Nigeria about 2 to 4 times a year since we first met in 2014. With a pause in 2020. So I don't know what your husband is talking or worried about. Currently, since your husband is not vaccinated, he will have to test 48 hours before travel. 2 days after arrival and 7 days after arrival. If vaccinated, he will only have to test 2 days after arrival. Vaccine status and pretravel test result needs to be uploaded to the nitp portal
  8. Some times (too many if you ask me) the process does not work. You will have to visit the SS office. I know of some who got their SSN in as little as 3 weeks.
  9. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. While I don't see some parts of the reasons as an emergency, I am really tired of the excuses that the embassies are using to delay open slots for interviews. So to @amm2016 give it a shot and let us know what the response is.
  10. Typing in uppercase/block letters is usually clearer that mixed and/or small letters Entering NA or None, shows that you actually went over the form and the question does not apply to you (immigration officer does not have to guess) Most of these forms are used for multiple situations.
  11. My usual response to this type of question in general is for you to look at the list of required documents, take that ones that apply to your case (each case is different) Take the original of the documents you submitted and you should be good to go. Asking for a list of required documents here is kind of vague
  12. @MyGODisAble🙏 Try this site "https://ceac.state.gov/ceac/" That should give you both IV and NIV options. Pick the correct option, NIV I think in your case and you should be able to complete your submission. https://ceac.state.gov/ceacstattracker/status.aspx is used to track the status of the case.
  13. Yeah, all you have to do now is to wait. I think this is a learning point for all not to try timing our submissions so tight. Mailing it a day or 2 inside the 90 day window would be the earliest I would drop it in the mail. They get a lot of mail and I would bet that the post marked date is what was used to determine its date of receipt. Due to this 'mistake' of trying to hit the 90 day window at the very top, OP is now at least 2 months behind what she had planned.
  14. Don't know how long it takes but I am assuming that you want to get a history of your entry and departures from the US. https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/#/home That's the site you will need. I think that will be simpler than a FOIA
