  1. Hello! Many thanks to all those who have shared tips/tidbits from their visa journey! Question: does anyone have experience with the Santiago, Chile embassy for K1 interviews? My finance is Chilean and his interview will be coming up sometime this year (hopefully) and we want to be as prepared as possible. Specifically, we're interested in timing of scheduling the interview post NOA-2, scheduling of the medical exam, and the overall interview experience. Any commentary is greatly appreciated! -Mary
  2. Hello everyone, I will soon go to the US on a J1 visa, my DS-2019 hasn't been issued yet but I am subject to the 2 year residency requirement (I checked with the Chilean embassy). I read that it is possible to get a waiver asking for a "no objection" letter from your home government in order to not fulfill such requirement. I would really like to find other chileans who have filled for the waiver under that condition so I can better understand what are my chances of getting one too. I know that processing times and the possibilty of getting one depend on where you are from. I just found out about this and I'm really bummed since my boyfriend (US citizen) and I were planning on living in California after my visa. Thanks! Any information will be very useful and appreciated.
  3. Hello! My J1 visa is about to expire and I'm not sure what steps to follow. How did you do this? Any piece of information/help would be tremendously appreciated. Thank you!
  4. Hello everybody! The beneficiary's passport expires by the end of february 2023. NVC already DQ'd the case and according to the statistics of Chile's interview times, we are estimating an interview before this year ends. The webiste ( https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/the-immigrant-visa-process/step-10-prepare-for-the-interview/step-11-applicant-interview.html ) says: "Passport – For each applicant, an unexpired passport valid for six months beyond the intended date of entry into the United States". According to this, we decided that it's better to get a new passport, but, is bringing both passports (the old one registered in the visa process and the new one) okay? Has anyone had issues with this? Thank you all! ❤️
  5. Hello! This is my first post on the forum. Thanks for any guidance! I filed the i130 petition for my husband (Chile) in March 2022. We both live in Chile, but I have been offered a job in the US that is uniquely suited to my experience (hard to find a position like this), starting in November. Question 1: If I go ahead with our 4-year-old son to take the job in the US while my husband works in Chile and waits for his visa here, we will go into debt every month, as the new job will not pay very much. On the other hand, I don't want to lose this job opportunity. Could this grounds for expedite due to financial hardship? I have already prepared budget examples, have the job offer letter, and a letter from the employer explaining why they need my particular skills/experience. I figure it's worth a try! Question 2: I called USCIS about the expedite request, and they informed me that they cannot consider it right now because my mailing address on the i130 is my Chile address, not US-based. They informed me that I would need to change the address, and it can only be done via snail-mail to the Texas Service Center! Has anyone else changed their address and had any luck? Finally, could I work with our embassy in Chile in any way? I'm at the point where I'm just thinking about hiring a lawyer to handle the expedite request and the next steps. However, thought I'd reach out here first to see what you all thought!
  6. My fiance lived in Chile for two years without a visa and was never able to take out residency there. For the interview you need a police certificate for any country you have lived in for more than 6 months. It is not possible to take out his police records without a national identity card. My question is, do his records even exist for these two years? He was never arrested or had any problems. Has someone else been in this situation? What should I do?
