  1. Hi, I was wondering if anyone has been able to schedule or reschedule a visa interview in Santo Domingo? I have called twice and have been told they are still not scheduling interviews since they do not know when they will be doing them. Although when I log into the ustravdocs site it showed me a box stating the next available interview appointment for this month. When I tried scheduling every date I picked said no availability and with the limited number of attempts I did not want to try again. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks!
  2. Hello everyone- still trying to perfect my petition here. So my fiance from Dominican republic, he has a very young son. The son stays with his mother and will not be coming to the US with his father. Should I still include him on our petition? Or not because he will not be coming? Thanks in advance!
  3. Hi I'm a American citizen by birth my husband is a Dominican citizen and we are currently pregnant due in December. I would like to know people's experiences with filing dcf at the embassy in DR how fast their spouse received the visa that kind of thing. We planned on having our baby in America not here (hospital are a lot better in America) I've never known anyone that went threw the process personally I just don't want to leave my husband yet I hoped we'd leave together and emotional I need him. I know many people spend years apart (his best friend is a LPR in America and his wife is still here the process is a lot longer for LPR) He's never been arrested in his life or has applied for a visa just a very good hard working man that wants to provide for his wife and child he even has a job lined up in America!!! Thank you to everyone who took the time to respond
  4. Finally after 6 years our I-601, and I-212 was approved on 07/13/2019. How long does it usually take for the consulate to reach out with a decision? they already confirmed that the consular officer was working on the case. I'm beyond anxious, reading, researching, I can use any help or info you can share please.
  5. Hello! K1 petition hoping to get NOA2 sometime next month (September), I've been trying to prepare for the next steps to make but the Dominican websites are very confusing so I have some doubts on what is supposed to happen post-NOA2 when you are dealing with the Dominican Republic. If someone who has already been through this could answer please! Im not going to bore you with a list of the steps I already know.. here is what I am not sure of: 1- after NVC assigns you a number and they forward your case to the embassy, do you submit the form DS-160? or you have to wait until you have an interview date? 2- do you get an assigned interview date and time or you choose it? 3- do you also have to make a separate appointment at the VAC for Biometrics? 4- This Famous Packet 4... Do I really need it? and what should I do if I don't ever receive it? 5- Do I have to send any documents to the NVC or the embassy prior to the interview? 6- my fiance is not planning on attending the interview at the embassy, is it really necessary for him to do so? he is a USC. 7- Is the Police Certificate the same as an: Acta de Buena conducta or Cartificado de No Antecedentes Judiciales?? Sorry for all the questions but I've ready many other posts and the wiki page and these items were a bit unclear for me. Thanks!
  6. Hi guys! I have to update the timelines later today. So far I have submitted my I-129 to USCIS, I got the notification that it was received, approved, and sent to the consulate. I received emails from the NVC that we can start the visa process. I followed the instructions and filled out the DS-160 online. When I go to the traveldocs website to make our first appointment I keep getting errors and it won’t give me an appointment. Has anyone else had this problem? Also do I have to be present for the visa interview or can my fiancé go alone? Please help!!
  7. Hey guys, i have a question regarding the birth certificate specifically the one from Dominican Republic, I would like to know if for the adjustment of status is required the certified version or it doesn't matter?
  8. Good morning guys i start This topic for share our experiences after the interview in Dominican republic consulate and the visa issuance that commonly is really fast... But I got approved in Jan 8, no more documents needed but they haven't touch my case at all in CEAC or any other track... similar expiriences??? I haven't pass for AP or other state this ready is when is "in transit" to "ready" from nvc.
  9. Alright, here goes: I am a US citizen (and UK), with US residency. My husband (as of 10/01/18) is a Dominican & Greek Citizen with DR residency. I'm in the DR with him now, but am going stateside next week. We wanted to start his green card process, but I'm a little intimidated. Husband came to US on ESTA Program 5 years ago, and overstayed 1.5 years. He wasn't deported, he bought a plane ticket and left. He was arrested when he was in US, but has no charges on record. He also had cancer, which I'm being told may impact Visa? My understanding is we have to apply for the Visa we know will be denied, and THEN file a waiver? Why can't we just jump to the waiver? We have spoken to: one useless Dominican attorney who told us the waiver is just an apology and no big deal, one Catholic charities representative who has said everything will suck for us, and I can't apply til I have health insurance for him (?) and that's it. That's literally as far in the process as we have gotten. Any help?
