  1. Right, she basically had the same application every time and it was approved 2 out of 7 times. Her ties didn't change at all. The interviewers never gave her a reason why she was denied either. Makes me sad to think of so many other people struggling through immigration, but at least there are many success stories in the end too. Thanks for the advice. I have experienced the scammers many times, though I'm surprised they let them hang around the embassy! Good tip about showing the passport, thanks! Hopefully everything will go smoothly; thanks everyone for the reassurance!
  2. Thanks for the reassurance, I'm sure it won't be an issue, but this process really has a way of bringing out the paranoia! Fingers crossed it all goes okay 🙂
  3. Hi all, So my wife and I are preparing her ds-260 and there is the question on it about previous visa denials. My wife (who is Vietnamese) when she was younger had some issues with student visas. She had applied 2 times and was denied both at the interview. Her third attempt they granted the visa. She then (unfortunately) lost her passport and had to apply again. She was denied three more times at the interview and then ultimately accepted on the fourth. She then used that visa to go to the United States to study (which is where we met!). Now we are back in Vietnam and getting ready for consular possessing and I am a little nervous about this being an issue. We have TONS of bonafides so I am not too concerned, but I was just hoping to get some opinions on what we might expect when the interview comes and if this will be a major sticking point/how to prepare for it. Thanks so much in advance! Brenden
  4. That's great, I wasn't sure if they would require the cert if the time added to a year or if it had to be continuous. She was definitely there for a total of over a year, but always 3 months here 3 there etc. I suppose it will get difficult to remember those dates and it might cause a problem because she got a student visa to the US during that time ten years ago and USCIS probably has better record of it than her 😢 Thanks for your reply!
  5. Hi everyone, My wife is filing ds260 now and we are in the process of getting all the required docs. The sticking point for us has become the police certs. About 10 years ago she studied in Singapore for a total of 2 years. But during that time she went back and forth to her home in Vietnam about 7 times (preparing a student visa for the US actually). The problem is she lost her passport so we don't know what kind of visa she had in Singapore and thus we also don't have her FIN number which is required to make the application for a police cert in Singapore. My question is two fold then. First, if she was back and forth so much, and never there for a continuous year does she actually need the cert? Two, since we do not have the FIN number we may not be able to obtain the cert at all, can we write a sworn affidavit explaining the situation? Would that be satisfactory to the NVC? Or will they still require this elusive cert? As an add on question, she won't need police certs for the 3 years she lived in the US on a student visa right? Thanks so much everyone!
