  1. Hi Can anyone suggest what I should do. I am on pending i-485 but I received my combo cards (work authorization & advance parole) last year. Since it is going to expired in coming March. I called the office and heard I could send applications for the renewal in 90days, so I got everything ready and finally the post reached the office in mid-Jan. I thought it’s not the first submission just requesting a renewal of card. And I have stated the expiration day also on the form. Assumed they will send a new card to me soon, I need to travel back home, so I booked my travel ticket.. Now I only got NOA letters saying they are processing the applications. Can anyone tell me how long the office usually sends the new card to you? Is it possible the government haven’t sent out a new valid card to us before the old card expired? I am worried to travel outside without a valid combo card. What should I do next ? Thanks 🙏🏻 I need to travel outside the end of next month.
  2. Thanks for all your replies. I have no experience of getting a i-131. The trip back home next month means much to me and our family. I have been in the US for three years, really miss my family and We finally are able to throw out a small wedding banquet for them. I will call for an field office appointment, hoping they can understand. Do anybody have such experience? Pls share. I have booked ticket and almost get everything for my wedding banquet done. I m really worried n uncomfortable. Below is my last message: —————————————————————— Hi Can anyone suggest what I should do.

  3. This is just a general post to let those know that if you are attempting to schedule an Infopass appointment online at the USCIS Boston Field Office (located at the JFK Federal Building downtown), the website online always says there are no appointments available. However, if you go to the office in person, there are kiosks available and you can schedule an appointment. There were a bunch of time slots available starting as early as next week, which did not show up online. When I asked the reason for this, they did not have an answer. It also seems like you could schedule an appointment for someone else if you needed to, you just need the person's name and phone number to book an appointment. This is the website to book appointments online: https://my.uscis.gov/en/appointment/v2 Also, for whatever reason, Infopass appointments are closed and unavailable just for this week (until tomorrow 2/15/19). Hope this can help someone!
  4. Hello guys, I hope all of you guys are ok and having a blessed day! - We just got our appointment letter for march 2019, we're excited and kind of nervous but I guess it's ok to feel like that, hope you guys can help us and guide us through this, every little piece of advise(what kind of questions they ask, how is it, whatever) would be gladly GLADLY appreciate it. We just want to be prepared. Btw: I sent everything they're asking me on the letter already but when it comes to taxes should I get the 2018 ones? or just use the one they got on file already? Thank you so much! Blessings
  5. Hi there. We are about to start our process. I've read so many posts about the Melichor (or something like that) doctor , saying she pretty much FORCES you to get the vaccines there with her clinic at a VERY HIGH COST. 1* Is there anyone who had the vaccines OUTSIDE her Clinic (other clinics, MINSA, etc) ? 2* Which vaccines are mandatory for the K1 visa ( I read somewhere : influenza, tb, hepatitis and neumococo, true?) ? Thank you so very much! Dee

    GHANA

    This is for IR1/CR-1 and/or IR2 Ghanaian members How long is it currently taking to have an appointment scheduled for interview in Ghana? Does anyone know the latest appointment that was schedule and when was the case complete for that person?
  7. Ok, so long story short, due to some issue, I wasn't able to book the appointment-date for our k1 visa today but here's the thing, like 12 hours ago, I was seeing "First Available Appointment Is Friday February 1, 2019", & now, I'm seeing "First Available Appointment Is Friday February 22, 2019". Is this for real? I mean how is that all of those slots got filled so rapidly within hours? And, if this is how fast they typically get filled, then how in the world was I possibly able to see the date that I did earlier in the day? Can anybody clue me in on what's going on here? Is this "normal" somehow? At first, I was so happy that I was going to get a date about 3 weeks out but now, it's 6 weeks, & who knows what it will be when I actually get down to booking my appointment tomorrow.
  8. Is anyone else at the stage of scheduling their interview appointment online with the Ghanaian embassy? I log on the site at least 20 times a day, every single day. Not counting the times that my fiance is also checking. And each time, it says "There are currently no appointments available at this time". Have you guys notice a time frame that they are releasing new dates? Like should I be looking around the first week of the month or the last? I am so frustrated. So close, yet so far!
  9. It's been difficult to book appointments at the Lagos consulate.
  10. So Johannesburg consulate is apparently booked up for several months and our visa petition expires August 13th. I am just so frustrated that this isn't going as smoothly as we'd hoped. They only do interviews on Tuesdays and Thursdays so go figure. I am really hoping that there is someway I can get in before the visa expires. There has been so much money, time and effort into this and I am going on half a year without seeing my fiancé, it sucks. Anyone been through this particular situation before? Any good advice, what are the chances of scheduling an emergency review to get in before the expiry date. This is ridiculous that they expect the people to log onto a site everyday in hopes an appointment will open up.
  11. Hi all, So I checked the status of my immigrant visas case number and it has gone from "In Transit" to "Ready"! Now my question is, what are the next steps. I've been looking everywhere and it doesn't seem so clear ( when is it ever). My fiance things we should wait until he gets some form of communication from the consulate before doeing anything else. Apparently we need the letter from them before he can even do the medical? Basically, from any one of your experience, what should we do at this point (besides get our documents ready - I 134, etc)? Thanks!!!!
  12. We recently got our biometrics appointments and I want to say thank you to this site . Because of researching here I learned of the possibility of walking in. My eldest son had a trip booked he could not change and we did not want to delay further by rescheduling. I had immediately submitted his letter for rescheduling but based on what I read here, with no guarantees nor way to talk to the centre, I made a 7 hours round trip drive with my four children to the Sacramento APS. It could not have gone more smoothly. No issue whatsoever. We were simply given our slots and all of us seen and out with an hour . I realise this is not always so but am so glad we tried. Thank you all!
  13. Hi I got an email for DNA appointment for son in Ghana and it says For beneficiaries (children) under age 18, a signed notarized letter or Power of Attorney from the petitioner in the US, giving the local guardian (even the mother) authority to sign documents on behalf of the individual providing the sample. I already email them the notarized letter for his guardian in Ghana but what kind of documents are they having her sign on his behalf? Does anyone have any experience as to what actually happens at the collection? Can we bring an interpreter as guardian does not speak english?
  14. So I completed a I190 to replace my dad expired green-card on July 10th, by July 13th I received the receipt notice in mail and on the same day online I saw that his bio-metrics appointment was set for August 2nd. Wow......didn't know it would move this fast....anywho... We live in NY and my dad did not received his renewed new Jamaican passport as of yet, I was hoping to bring to the biometrics Appt. My question is which forms of ID is acceptable.... He has his old expired green-card along withe IDNYC ID which is municipal ID (IDNYC is the new, free identification card for all New York City residents, which gives all of us the opportunity to show who we are—New Yorkers. As a government-issued photo identification card) So basically the ID my dad as is a local city government issued ID. do you think this would be acceptable for biometrics appt. He does not have any other form of ID just this one and his expired Greencard.
  15. Hey folks, I'm new here so I'm sorry if this isn't the right place to post this but I'm just curious how long it took you guys to get your interview appointment? Did they email you the date or was it sent via snail mail? Our paperwork has officially been approved by the NVC for two weeks and we're waiting to hear when our appointment date is at the US embassy in Montreal. Thanks for any help that you could give!

    noa2 steps

    Hi! So I just got my letter from NVC and i'd like to ask, do I have to pay for the visa first and foremost or can I schedule a doctor appointment before scheduling an interview at the embassy?
  18. Hello VJ, We sent our ROC and have received our NOA1 and NOA2. We have our ASC Biomertic Appointment in a few days. I had a few questions. 1.) We only need our NOA2 - ASC Appointment letter and Photo ID (Green Card)? Do we need the NOA1 - extension letter of our green card also? 2.) Is my wife suppose to go alone inside the building or can we both go? 3.) Do they ask any questions during the procedure? 4.) I'm guessing it is similar to the bio metric procedure she had done before coming to the USA? 5.) Do we need to come few hours before appointment time? Or bring anything else? Sorry if these questions are obvious questions. CSC: NOA1 Date: Dec. 8, 2017 NOA2 Date: Dec 15, 2017 Thanks!
  19. For those who are planning to apply or renew their Philippine passport, the DFA would accept online appointments only until June 30, 2018.
  20. Hello! I filled my I751 in January and yesterday I got in the mail Notice of Action I 757C which says: "US Citizenship and Immigration Services ( USCIS) has received your form and is currently processing your application, petition or request. This notice informs you that USCIS is able to reuse your previously captured fingerprints and other biometrics. USCIS will run the same security checks and use your biometrics data as in the past, however, it is not necessary for you to appear at a USCIS Application Support Center for a biometric appointment. The biometric fee will not be refunded." Just want to make sure that I don't need to go for an appointment. Anyone else got a notice like this? Thanks
  21. Our local infopass office, Denver location, has no available appointments. We need to get a visa extension, because our one year letter is almost over. And we also have a cruise at the end of May. Do we have to use the Denver office or can we actually go out of state and use another States USCIS local office? I would hate to go to another state and then find out that they won't serve us because we are coming from another state or we don't fit in their jurisdiction. But when you go to the USCIS website and try to make an infopass IT ask you to enter your ZIP code and it actually gives us Denver and Helena Montana as the two closest offices I just don't know if both offices are an option or if I have to go to Denver. Thanks for the help.
  22. Hi all, I'm hoping this is a silly question (and may well have been answered on the forums elsewhere so apologies but I'm panicking!). On the UK Embassy website it states that "Applicants whose case was processed by NVC will be required to bring your appointment letter. Both locally filed and NVC cases must bring their courier confirmation page" However on the AIS website it states that "You must print this instruction page and bring it with you to your consular interview, along with the letter or email you received from the Consular Section." Which letter or email from the consular section are they referring to?! I only got the letter with instructions on where to book medical and schedule the appointment, I didnt get a letter confirming my appointment (just the email from AIS). I dont want to arrive at the desk with something missing that gets me turned away (especially as Im travelling from Edinburgh just for the interview! To clarify- I have the email from the AIS that has appointment details and courier info but it reads like I need something from the embassy with my appointment info? Or is that just NVC cases and not locally filed cases? PS interview is on Friday...
  23. Hello! Hopefully, I've put this in this in the right topic! Alrighty so firstly I have looked around and can't seem to find the answer to one of my questions. But info first, My conditional residency green card expired in June 2017, Sent out to renew it in April 2017. I did the biometrics back in June 2017 and what not and am in the waiting game phase atm which is fine. It looks like I won't be getting my new one for another 5 to 7 months (mine was sent to the California office) and my Extension Letter Expires in June 2018. So the issue I have is that I'm visiting my family in England from June this year to August meaning during my trip my extension letter will expire. I know I can get a I-551 Stamp well I think I can I've heard different things. I'm planning on doing that In May. But the problem I'm stuck with is my information for the flights. Because I have a British Passport it's asking me for my green card info which is fine buuuuut i can't complete it because the expiry date was June 2017 and that's not an option on there so I now have absolutely no idea what to do and can't finish the info needed. Do I get new info on the I-551 Stamp that I can put in instead? Do I need to call the airline? I've got no clue lol Also as a mini question lol for this I-551 Stamp do I need to do anything in particular aside from booking the appointment and bringing the usual/typical stuff? Like a certain form or payment? Next Is mostly just an added question about whether anyone has used Iberia airlines before? 2 of my 4 flights are with them and I can't for the life of me choose my husbands or my own seats and I'm worried if we don't do it soon then we might not sit together (I always get stuck to the strange or scary people, no joke) So do I need to call Iberia or AA to help with that? I think that's all. Thank you for all/any help and answers in advance.
  24. Hello there, I'm currently residing here in Abu Dhabi, my Fiance and I have already applied for K-1 and our I-129F has been approved on November 28, 2017. As per instruction by the NVC, I will receive a notification or a mail on what to do next. I didn't receive one but my Fiance did on February 1, 2018 via his email. I was just wondering, Is it the same? Anyway we followed what is instructed there; I prepared all the needed documents, I already did my medical examination and I scheduled my interview appointment on April 3, 2018. So my interview appointment is already set, but until now I have not receive any mail/email/sms notification from the US Embassy here in Abu Dhabi, Will there be a problem? Thank you so much in advance.
