  1. So my husband's immigration visa is being sent to NVC and am trying to get my documents in order Our marriage certificate lists both of our ID numbers. Mine is my US passport number, however in October, I renewed my passport and they gave me a new passport number. If my passport number does not match the ID number on my marriage certificate, will this be a problem for a consular officer or anyone at NVC? obviously I still have my expired passport and could verify that my expired passport's number is also my ID number on my marriage cert. I am asking because apparently changing your ID on your marriage certificate can be a long process with the Registro Civil in Costa Rica, around 2 months, so I am just wondering if this is really necessary that my ID number (i am the petitioner) matches my up to date passport, or if it is OK that my expired passport # is what is written on my marriage cert. Thanks,
  2. Hey everybody! I thought I would start a thread for Costa Rica filers to collect and share experiences, wisdom and advice. Share your story and let us know how your immigration is progressing. Any tips about interviews, medical, or documentation for the embassy would be super helpful for future filers. For those further along, how has the transition to living in the U.S. been for you? Also feel free to just come hang out and chat with fellow CR filers about anything that's on your mind. Estamos en el foro regional, así que siéntese libre de comunicar también en español! 🇨🇷❤️🇨🇷😁🇨🇷❤️🇨🇷
  3. Hello! I am an Indian citizen married to a US citizen in the process of waiting for my interview for Green Card. I have an Indian Passport, US H1B Visa (expiring May 31st, 2018), Employment Authorization Document with Advance Parole valid until Jan, 2019. I am traveling to Costa Rica for 9 days for tourism. As much as I have checked as long as you have a valid passport with US Visa, you are good to travel. When I booked my travel about 8 months ago, I imagined I would have my Green Card by now but due to delays in Immigration, my case is waiting to be scheduled for an interview. Can I travel to Costa Rica on a valid passport, visa, EAD, AP and Return ticket combo? It has been really hard to get a response from the Costa Rican embassy. I wonder if someone could shed some light as I leave in 5 days! Preeti
  4. My situation is, that I am currently in a long distance relationship with a permanent resident in the US. I live in Germany, he was born in Costa Rica and he obtained the status of a permanent resident (Green Card Holder) recently. So my plan is to study over here in Berlin and then move over to the US after I finished, but I don't really know how long the process will take and if I will be able to stay in the US, while my permanent resident status is in process. What are your experiences and what would you suggest, should we do best. I am already really thankful for every constructive answer.
  5. Hi, everyone. Here is another question about the dreaded AP. My fiance and I had our interview in the consulate in Costa Rica on the 25th of September and they told us we were approved. We were very happy about it. They gave us no extra paperwork, nothing about a 221g or anything. They only said "congratulations," and that the visa would be ready within about ten days. They kept his passport. Now our CEAC status has been "Administrative Processing" since the 26th. The "Case Last Updated" date got changed on the 28th and then again the 29th, but there has still been no change in status as of now (October 3rd), and still says "Immigrant Visa." We heard from a friend that they got their visa (a different one though, a visitor's visa) within two days. Maybe we're jumping the gun here, but we are getting concerned now that this could be a bad sign. We don't have a place to live here past the 25th of this month (unrelated to this visa, actually -- just somebody else moving in) and we need to know how serious this might be and how much we should consider planning for having to stay in CR a lot longer. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much, Kate and Evgeny
