  1. How bad can be if I change the appointment at the embassy? My husband and I still waiting for the passport of my son ( he born after we started the process), in the country we are the government called for state of emergency so everything about documents is taken forever! so we are not sure about it, I need advices!
  2. My husband has his Biometric apointment today. Since we are saving money to go to Mexico, I was wondering how long did it take for others to receive a notice or approval for the next step. Waiver sent: September 26 Received by: October 12 or near that Biom letter October 31 Biom app: October 10-today
  3. After I got the information about my interview in the embassy , I read that I have to schedule an appointment in the embassy, but I have to fill the DS 160 form to get it? I'll appreciate if somebody respond my question.
  4. hello so when i try to get to schedule an interview it tells me ( There are currently no appointments available. ) how do i get to fix this ?
  5. Hello everyone, I am here to trying to maybe get some insight to what is going on with others and their wait time. I will try and make this short. My husband and I started dating in 2014 then married in 2016 and right after I filed paperwork to start our journey on making him a legal resident of the US. He came over at the young age of 13. Anyways long story short in 2017 he was pulled over because we forgot to put the sticker on the car and of course he had no licenses so he was taken to jail they told him they would let him sign himself out soon but when i got there they told me ICE had been called so I had to pay $10,000 I drove all the way to Minneapolis and paid the bond then went to Grand forks to pick him up since then our case took a detour. After a long process we eventually were able to continue with our journey and in September 2019 our case was documentarily completed everything was accepted and paid for the only thing we were waiting on was an interview date. However the month before in August 2019 he had immigration court and the nice judge gave him the option to stay and fight his case (which would cost us another $8,000 with our attorney) or we could just do Voluntary departure and he wait on his appointment in Mexico we were told it would possibly be up to 6 months so we agreed to that. He left in December 2019 and to the date of July 1st 2021 he is still there waiting for his appointment we have not heard anything. I understand covid was never expected and of course messed that up for thousands if not more families. So does anyone have any ideas of when or how much longer? His interview will be in Juarez, Mexico we have just been told our case is just at the NVC awaiting for the consulate in Juarez to give them an appointment date. I am well aware that everyone else is affected just as much, but I don't know how much longer we can do this. We have 3 children and one grandchild he was only able to see for a week as she was born a few days before he left. Anything would help! Thanks so much and God Bless!
  6. Hello I received an email from Embassy to schedule an interview. After entering all the details, I could not find any appointment dates. Just to check if that was really the case, I created another profile with a secondary email address. To my surprise, I can see that there is an appointment date available. Note that the primary email address contains all the information so I cannot duplicate my profile in my secondary email address. Upon inquiry with the support, I did not receive any update. Its been 2 months already since I asked questions from the embassy support. Yet there is no solution. My question: 1. How long does it take for the consular to rectify to my problem? 2. Is it normal to not have an appointment date while another profile does have? Additionally, to check again - I tried a new schedule to check with other visa classes and still no date show up. This is a website technical error. Does anyone have a solution to this or have encountered this before? Thanks
  7. Hello, I just got my appointment notice yesterday and it says that I'm going to have the appointment in Miami on 4/26/2021, the only problem is that I live in Jacksonville which is 6-7 hours away from Miami and right now, it's not impossible, but it's a little bit complicated to go. I was wondering if I can go to the center here in Jacksonville, without having to wait again 4 to 8 weeks. I sent everything back in August 2020 and I just got my biometrics appointment, so I don't wanna wait that long again. I read about people with the same problem and they just went to the nearest office, like a week before the appointment, and they had no problem. I really don't know what to do.
  8. Hello! I hope you're all doing well. I know this process is really tough, but hopefully we will all see more and more movement soon! I was wondering if any of you have any advice with trying to get an expedite for an early interview appointment. I was stuck at NVC for months and they finally released the case to the embassy but the earliest appointment is not for another 4 months. Has anyone requested for an expedite successfully? And has anyone requested for an expedite with the Dakar Embassy?

  11. Hello, so I am the petitioner for my wife, she lives in Singapore. So far we have had a relatively smooth process to reach the NVC scheduling us an Interview. However, we are having one confusing issue. We got our Appointment letter and inside the letter it gives us a Time and Date for our Interview (March 3rd, 8.30AM). Then it gives us a link to a list of things to do: Step 1. Register online This process involves going to: https://cgifederal.secure.force.com/ Creating an account (if one doesn't already exists), and entering document delivery information like address and everything. Selecting a bunch of options and filling it all out. Well, eventually we get to a section called 'Appointment date', however, it says "There are no available appointment dates". But, do we need to select an appointment date? The NVC/Consulate of Singapore already assigned us March 3rd, 8.30AM in the Appointment letter. It is concerning that on https://cgifederal.secure.force.com/, the dashboard says 'No appointment'. But the letter says a specific date... Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  12. Hello guys, So I just got interviewed today for my citizenship and I passed it. The officer told me that my Oath will be next week on Thursday but he said to wait for their email as he didn't give me a time yet. I really need to get the Oath though because I live overseas as my husband works for the military, and I already rebooked my ticket and the officer knows the situation that I am not staying here in the US. My question is what if they don't email me, can I just show up in the Immigration Office on Thursday?
  13. Has anyone had to reschedule their interview in Montreal recently? Did it go smoothly? How long did you have to wait for another appointment to become available? (I'm assuming you had to wait until your initial appointment date had passed to reschedule online?)
  14. Basically the title. My wife's appointment is scheduled for Jan 7th, but for reasons related to my work, it would be so much more convenient if we could get it done earlier - sometime this week or next, ideally. I have heard of people who just show up to the appointment, even weeks earlier, and walk-in and get it done. Is this common/ acceptable? Should I call the office and confirm with them first if it's okay? I would much rather wait until the designated date than go through USCIS's formal rescheduling process. Thanks in advance!
  15. Timeline Dec 2018 - submitted I751 to remove conditions on green card and received 18 months extension Jan 2019 - Biometrics Jan 2020 - Ready to schedule an interview No update after that. April, May 2020 - multiple calls to USCIS to get an infopass appointment, but they asked me to wait until last week of the expiration. June 2020 - Extension letter expired After it was expired, USCIS say due to covid19, only emergency appointments are allowed and a medical reason (surgery, death or similar), new employment offer or a employee termination letter will serve as an emergency that will allow to schedule an infopass appointment for ADIT stamping. Recently, my disaster loan was denied because the small business administration couldn't verify me as a qualified alien. Due to covid19, business is very slow and it is very important for me to get the loan to keep my business afloat. Tier 2 is going to call me this week and I want to know if mortgage denial letter from sba.gov is sufficient to qualify for an infopass appointment. (not important) - Also, I'm eligible for N400 naturalization. I'm planning to submit N400 while I751 is also in process. Will there be any affect on either of it if I do that? Please help. Thanks in advance.

  17. I know the official answer is that the US Embassy will resume routine consular services as soon as they possibly can, but just checking to see if anyone has heard any rumor or any information on when they would potential resume processing K1 VISA in Nigeria and when we can begin scheduling interview dates.

  20. Hello, I am Italian and I am waiting for my interview at the US Consulate in Naples. My husband and I started out CR1 petition on April 3rd, 2019. Visajourney has published a very helpful Megathread regarding the latest announcement from President Trump and the immigration suspension order. Since this website represents a great support for us, while we are waiting to join our beloved ones, I was wondering whether other Italians are in the same situation as mine. My first appointment (April 21st, 2020) has been cancelled and I'm (hopefully) waiting for another one. How about you? Feel free to send me a message, maybe we can create a group and stay up to date regarding this incredible situation. Thank you, Mirna
  21. As much information as there is on the state.gov site, it is SO confusing. Can anyone explain how they paid for the K1 visa so that the interview could be scheduled? I am specifically talking about Cuban applicants that have to go to Guyana for the K1 visa interview. The instructions on the US Embassy in Guyana site state to pay cash to an account at a Scotiabank Guyana. There are no retail Scotiabanks in the US so how is this fee paid? I just want to schedule the visa interview and it seems there isn't a single answer. I've emailed the consulate already; waiting for a response but hoping someone could enlighten me on this process during the interim. Am I supposed to wire money (which I feel is completely unsafe)? do I email the embassy for an appointment? What's the protocol here? Thank you.
