  1. Hello everyone, Anyone with an immigrant visa who couldn’t travel from Ghana to the U.S. contacted U.S. embassy in Accra to extend their visa for one month based on the Department of State statement on July 24th? I know Ghana’s borders are still closed and I think they might not grant that extension due to that. Thank you.
  2. Has anyone has their reschedule interview cancelled by Ghana Embassy.
  3. We are currently in the waiting process for our NOA2 and are trying to determine when to start attempting to obtain a police certificate from Ghana. My fiance is Ghanian but lives abroad, so he cannot go to Accra and have his fingerprints done for the certificate. Does anyone have experience of getting a police certificate remotely and how long did that process take you? Did is go smoothly? Any advice is welcome!
  4. Hi, I received a mail of interview cancellation on the night before my interview(March) due to the covid pandemic. I later found out that others who’s interviews were cancelled were rescheduled. The unfair thing is that my interview date was even ahead of their previous dates. I emailed the embassy about it and I was told to reschedule by myself. We’ve been trying severally but....”no appointment available ” Please anyone got any ideas please ??
  5. Hi All! My husband Vincent and I got married in 2016 in Accra after a denied K1. I've done A LOT of traveling back and forth to Ghana over the past couple of years, and we're now trying to get pregnant, so it's past time that we begin our "VisaJourney" again--this time with a spousal visa petition. The K1 was denied because they believed our relationship wasn't bona fide. In my last petition, I sent in the bare minimum of what was needed, and then worked really hard on making sure Vincent was ready for the interview with the photos, chats, etc. That obviously didn't work for whatever reason, so this time I'm wanting to front-load and see if that helps any. I have a flimsy 3-ring notebook that is organized into 5 sections: 1. Essentials--cover letter, money order, G-1145, and I-130 2. Petitioner/Beneficiary Documents--copy of my passport, two passport photos of me, I-130A, passport photos for Vincent, marriage certificate 3. Whatsapp Chats--I plan on picking 3 conversations from each month, for as far as I can go back 4. Photos--I have about 200 photos of before we were married, our marriage ceremony, and us traveling around Ghana with both mine and his family 5. Witness Statements--Notarized statements from my sister and 4 friends here in the US that have either met Vincent in person, or have at least talked to him on the phone Does this look okay? Anything else you think I should add, like financial documents? We don't own any property together and our finances aren't really mingled like they would be if we actually lived together. Should I add in my personal income stuff to the front-load? I make the 125% above the poverty level required and I read on VJ that NVC will send a letter to me requesting this info, but not sure if I should go ahead and add it in since, well, it's Ghana... Thanks for all the posts and everyone's help! This forum was great in the past and can't wait to be involved again! --Ali
  6. My fiancée will be filing a K1 visa petition very soon and we're having some confusion with her household income. So she had 3 kids from her previous marriage and I have one with her ( 7 months old). her parents have claimed her kids on their taxes but they live with her and they did that because she was schooling, but she began working about 7 months ago. 1. I'd like to know when she's calculating her household, will she have to add the kids even though her parents have claimed them? 2. also does she have to add our new born to the household? 3. Now she's going to file her taxes pretty soon now she's working. Does she have to put the kids on her taxes?
  7. Hi, I heard that the US embassy in Ghana most times tend to deny K1 applications that has a joint sponsor, I'd like to know it there's anyone that passed through the US embassy in Ghana with a Co sponsor and how it went?
  8. I filed for both parents in ghana and below is my timeline: NOA1 - 07/05/2018 NOA2 - 02/27/2019 CASE SENT TO NVC: 03/05/2019 NVC CASE # ASSIGNED: still waiting I wanted to know how the below questions as i'm little nervous about this whole process what are some of the interview questions they can /ask your parents at the US embassy in Accra? what other documents do i need to provide apart from the ones listed at the NVC website? the reason i'm asking this is because the CO in Ghana can be hard on you sometimes
  9. Does anyone know if the embassy in Accra, Ghana requires original signed I134 and resigned intent. I scanned over a copy my fiance. I doubt my mailed copy would arrive in time. Please share your experience. Did you only provide copies as well. Thank you
  10. Hello all! I’m new here but I’m having a hard time finding answers to this online in the general pool. im getting engaged and potentially married to a Nigerian citizen in Ghana end of February. I know there’s certain papers I need to bring with me (birth certificate, divorce decree, etc.) but if I bring them and Ghana officials find them in my baggage, will it rouse suspicion like it would here in the US? I want to be prepared but I don’t want to ruin the whole thing. Thank you for any help!
  12. Hello, I am working on filing out the I-129 F. My concern is regarding filling out the beneficiary's home address. My fiancee lives in Ghana where street addresses/mail doesn't function like it does in the US. I have mailed something to him before via FedEX but I had to put his phone number with his address so they could call him to deliver the package. On the I-129F I don't see where they ask for the beneficiary's phone or email. My worry is that they will send him a packet and it will not reach him. Has anyone else dealt with this issue? How did you handle it. Thanks.
  13. I started by calling Akai to ask questions on what I was expected to bring, etc. However during the phone call, the Akai receptionist wasn't too pleasant on the phone. He spoke like I was bothering him with questions. I was only asking about what am expected to bring, etc. So I decided to ditch Akai and try Holy Trinity Medical Center. From the onset they were eager and willing to help me with my questions and even offered more insight for my understanding. Going to Holy Trinity, every nurse or doctor I met was professional and nice to me. They offer snacks to everyone that comes for medicals. It was a breeze. No unnecessary delays or the sort. I am happy with my experience with Holy Trinity. Just sharing incase anyone in Ghana is wondering how the experience was... 😃
  14. Hello all! I have a question... My fiancé had his interview on 29 October 2019 and passed.

  15. Hi everyone. I submitted the DS260, AOS and supporting docs on 10/22 and 10/23 respectively. To my pleasant surprise, two days later on10/25, I received notice that the documents have been accepted and as such, we are now pending an interview date. Can anyone who is going thru or passed thru this step advise on how long it took them to receive an interview date? I'm praying it's soon. Thanks, folks!

  18. Hello all! My fiancé had his interview on 29 October and was passed; consulate officer took his passport and other docs needed and gave him a white paper with instructions for pick up at the DHL; HOWEVER when I go to the website indicated it’s not really saying much . Right now it says passport still at embassy/consulate...will this later change to AP? As I have heard many people speak of going on administration processing for a few days and for others months..
  19. Hi, does anyone know how much wrapping a luggage at the Kotoka airport in Accra cost would cost? Specifically 24" luggage or any other. I just need a general idea of how much I need to have on me to pay for one. Thanks!
  20. I have sent my fiancé all the required documents to do his interview however (I don’t know how), but I managed to leave out the I-797 and we are left with 9 days to his interview ; he will not receive it on time...does ANYBODY know if GHANA EMBASSY accepts photocopies of the I-797??? Or would they request him to provide it at a later time but still continue the interview?
  21. Greetings! My Ghanaian husband first arrived in the U.S. in June, 2018. He returned to Ghana in February of this year, then came back to America in July. We live in Tennessee, which is known for many different kind of allergy-causing plants. He has been allergy tested, and amazingly no real serious allergic reactions were found. His whole time here is marked by endless sneezing and stuffiness. We try allergy medicine, prescription allergy medicine, I put a very nice HEPA filter in our bedroom; everything I can think of, but nothing seems to stop it. He seems to be most reactive to cold. This makes some sense as it is never cold in Ghana. Has anyone else had an experience of a spouse coming from Subsaharan Africa to the U.S. and having unending sinus issues? Did you find any resolution? Thank you!
  22. Hi, is there anyone here who was interviewed in Ghana, Accra consulate on the 24th of September, 2019 or any dates around the 24th of September, 2019?
  23. My husband is in Ghana and I am in the US. When we registered our marriage the registrar wrote the wrong address number- 120 instead of 180. How can this be officially changed to show the correct address?
