  1. Honestly, I am at a loss to pick out anything that would red flag me. Interviews seemed perfectly good. No missing documentation. I have never had arrests or anything like that. I asked about what the reason for this was and officer had no actual information as to why it would be. Bureaucratic answer of following protocol of US govt, erc. Ok. Disappointing, and bewildering.
  2. Hello everyone, hope you’re all well. I just thought to make a thread for people waiting to get an interview in the consulate in Lagos, Nigeria (for all categories), so that we can keep track of how long the backlog currently is. Could everyone who posts please specify when they were DQ’d and when they got their interview, if they’ve got one, please. Thanks so much! I'm F2B, and I got DQ on 19/01/2020

Therefore , all IR-5 applicants may share their information on following points - Priority Date , DQ date . Subsequently they may share progress of their respective case . They may also share their Interview Experiences . Such information will help all concerned members . Good Luck .
  9. I see that there aren't many users who will attend an interview at the Senegal US consulate. Anyway, for the few that are (or have already), how long does it usually take to get an interview date after DQ? If you have, mind sharing your experience? Anything helps.
  10. Hello everyone, I am wondering if anyone has received an interview appointment at the Abu Dhabi Embassy after recently getting their DQ. it would be great if someone would share their experience.

  16. Hello everyone, Majorly confused over here. I’ve been in contact with some other K1 visa applicants who are also bringing over Dutch fiancé/fiancées and it seems that somehow..me(I’m American) and my fiancé(Dutch) made an interview appointment and got all our documents together based on links and information we found online at travel.state.gov and CEAC’s website and some ais website that was buried in the Amsterdam Consulate. When we tracked our case from the NVC the visa was “READY” and at consulate(I called them) so we took that as an okay to schedule an interview. They said wait for an email. He got an email from the NVC confirming the application was at the consulate. Edit- So we thought “this is the email! Ah ha!” When we applied for an interview and logged in to the ais site only one date was available edit: May 17. This is the only date available for about 6 months out. It seems like it’s just assigned? anyway. We never received instructions for how to make the medical appointment. We have everything else in the checklist. Appointment schedule page, DS-160, police report, I-864, passport photos. to hear some of the other applicants tell it, we are supposed to have received a packet 3 that tells us to send the DS-160 to someplace? I don’t know. All I know is we have everything and received an email just now with a listing documents for our interview and a link to make the interview (which we somehow already made a week ago). Very very confused. Did we skip P3? Did we just never receive it? Was this email P3 or P4?
  17. I was a regular reader of the last London thread to keep myself updated with current timelines etc before it went to 70+ pages and way off topic. I thought it was such a useful resource so I’ve decided to start the ball rolling again so we can keep each other updated on news as it comes in. To kick us off, me and my wife were DQ 10th July so we’re hoping to get our interview appointment email early November. It appears June DQ dates have been scheduled so hoping this is our time after literally years of waiting. Fingers crossed for no Tier 3 lockdown in London!
  18. Could anyone tell how long it takes for visa interview after document complete at Montreal please share date of document complete date of interview email date of interview only for Montreal please
  19. Hello everyone, loved hearing everyone's voice on this...can anyone also help us out. Bit confusion on our side: My family is scheduled for F4 interview in upcoming few weeks in Mumbai. My son is in Canada recently got his permanent resident (PR). Since, it's been a while the case was updated. My son had been removed due to a CSPA rule. However, after talking to the consulate they are letting him come in for an interview. Will have to fill out DS-260 and upload all civil docs on CEAC. Does anyone know if my son should get his biometrics and medical done in Canada or he is only allowed to get it from India? Thanks.
  20. On 13-July-2018, we had our interview for F4 category. It was a bitter experience and we are very confused about it. It would be great if anyone clears our situation. Our interview was at 8 AM at Islamabad Embassy. Our priority date is 27/10/2004. We were 5 persons in total. My parents and their three children in which two were under CSPA with ages 23 and 26. We reached embassy and took tokens by 8:30 AM. First we went to a window in which the officer took our Interview letter, Pictures and took our finger prints. Then, after a while we went to another window where one officer collected our documents and it turned out that the birth certificate was not original. We protested a bit and then he said that if you wish me to put it with documents, I would but it would affect your case as you are under oath and this would be considered a lie. On hearing that, we asked him to give it back and then he told us that you could send it after wards. He was rude and asked us in a bitter way that whether we children are married or not. We told him that we are not. He also asked us what do we do and we answered him accordingly. This whole situation created an upset in my family and we got nervous as something terrible had happened. After a while we were asked to come to a window where there was a female visa officer with a male interpreter as we chose to give our interview in Urdu (native language). My uncle sponsored us but his income was well under poverty line so we had our cousin as joint sponsor as his income is on the higher side. First he interviewed my Father Q: Who was the petitioner? A: My little brother and (HIS NAME) Q: Where does he live? A: California (did not answer with the whole address) Q: From when is he living there? A: The answer was 2010 but my father answered it 2004 because my uncle shifted from NY to Rochester in 2004 so father confused it with. He corrected it after we cleared it to him. Q: How many children do you have and what do they do? A: Answered Properly but nervously Q: Have you all visited US before? (Question where it started to go wrong) A: Father told him that he had visited a couple of times in the fast. Q: You stayed for 6 months? A: Yes, i stayed for 6 months. Q: Did you over stay? A: Father said No. (and it was true) Q: You sure? A: Yes Q: Why did you stay for 6 months? A: I am a keen traveler and i visited my family (Answered nervously) Q: What did you do there? A: I like to travel, I traveled to many places with my friends and family. (The interpreter did not translate it to the VO) Q: But what did you do there? (asked again) A: Traveled alot and some other general statements. (interpreter did not seem to be satisfied so he did not translate it again and asked the same question again) Q: But what did you do? A: Some general statements but when he did not seem to be satisfied my father said that my brother had stores there and i sometimes used to go with them. The interpreter shrugged his shoulders and said something to VO which i could not hear properly and i was standing with my father. (I have two uncles in USA and they used to have stores but my petitioner is not an owner of property now and he works as an associate in a store officially owned by other relatives that is why his income is below poverty line significantly) At this point the VO peeked to another window, talked to some other fellow and put a stamp on the passport of my passport which i believe is that she revoked his existing visit visa which was still valid. Q: Do you have any domicile proof of joint sponsor? A: i gave them the copy green card of my cousin. They did not ask any question about him but my father volunteered and told them about our relationship with the joint sponsor but the interpreter did not translate it to VO. That was the last question they asked my father and situation got very nervous there. The they asked my elder brother who is 26 and working in QATAR right now. Q: Where do you work? A: answered properly Q: Do you have your police clearance certificate with you? A: I gave the the PCC as i was holding all the documents with me. The PCC had Arabic on right side and English translation on left side of the document. She asked that where is the English translation? My brother answered properly that it is on the same document and it is the one they provide officially. She looked on it for a while and then returned. She did not seem to look very happy. Q: From how long have you been in Qatar? A: 8 months but i visited for a month in between as he visited on eldest brothers marriage. Then he asked me one question that what do you do? I told him that i am engineer doing job right now. Situation was quite tense and we were not very confident as she seemed to be strict from the very beginning. Then she gave us 221g form on which it was marked that we have to provide birth certificate of my father. The thing that happened after it is the thing that is particularly bothering me. She kept all of our passports but gave my elder brother his passport so that he can go back to Qatar for his job. My brother refused to take it saying that he is here for a while. Then she said that we will process your case and if your visa gets ready, we will ask you to give us your passport. My brother insisted not to take it and said he can wait. She replied, "IT WILL TAKE A VERY LONG TIME". My brother said he can wait for two months and if it would not get worked till then he would take it back. This statement terrified us badly. After that she went away and I asked our interpreter how to submit birth certificate. He told us to to go to another window to get instructions. Then i asked him is there and remarks on our interview, he replied that your interview is concluded and now we would do a departmental verification. I asked is there any time frame for this process? he replied negatively. After that we went to the other window and got information about where to submit the document? We got it and we will submit the document is a couple of days. Now, we are very confuse about what would happen next and how long we have to wait? whole family is upset about it. Her statement about "LONG TIME" particularly is hurting us. My brother`s job is on stake as well. We are confused whether to ask for his passport as we are unsure about how much time would it take. There is nothing fraudulent in our documents, its just we gave the interview nervously which we think have created some doubt in their mind. The status of case is changed to administrative processing. During whole this process the VO stamped 5 or 6 of our documents, does anyone have idea what that stamp is about? It would be great in some expert analyzes the situation and gives us some advice about what to do.
  21. Hello everyone. I see a lot topics about delays at Warsaw Embassy. I would like to ask if there are any people who decided to transfer their case from Frankfurt to Warsaw and what are current waiting times for processing K1 visa application at Warsaw Embassy so as waiting times for interview. They received our documents from NVC on May 12th and we are still waiting on instructions letter/email
  22. Hi, I just submitted my paperwork for my joint sponsor after the nvc requested one may 3rd after they accepted all our docs. I submitted the joint sponsor may 24th. My question is how did it it take nvc to approve your joint sponsors paperwork and schedule an interview after you added a JS? Thanks so much! You guys are very helpful. Medasi! Quote
  23. Hello! So, my husband and I have a few questions regarding how interviews work. We're still at the beginning of this process but we thought we'd get this cleared up early on. For background, he is Russian living in Armenia. He only really has 6 months to stay in Armenia before he has to probably go back to Russia for a bit, although it's all really uncertain. There's a chance he could get his passport and go to Georgia for a bit and then reenter armenia later, but he doesn't have a passport and if he tries to get one while in Russia, he will no doubt be dragged into the war, since he hasn't done his required military conscription yet anyway, and if he tries to get one from armenia, we're completely unsure if they'd issue him one. But I guess that's a separate issue. Basically, we have no idea where he will be in the future. Maybe still in Armenia, maybe Georgia, maybe Russia in the worst case scenario. We're hoping to get an expedite since he's displaced due to the war but i've heard its unlikely, since he's russian and not ukrainian. If we start this process now and he has to leave Armenia after he submits his greencard app, then where is the interview located? Is it just whatever US embassy or consulate is near him, or would he need to reschedule the interview to match where he currently is? I've also seen conflicting information about where russian citizens are getting processed. I heard that he would have to do everything in Poland but I've also seen that he just needs to use whatever embassy is closest to him. Is it that if he's physically in russia he needs to go to poland and if he's still in armenia he goes to the US embassy in armenia? It's a really confusing situation, so any thoughts or information to help us out would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  24. Hi everyone! I have my K1 interview in June in Bangkok. In instruction it's said that I'll get my passport with visa in 7-14 days after the interview, delays are common. What were the actual terms lately? And can I take my passport from the embassy when it's ready? Thank you so much
  25. Hello everyone!!!! I'm sure this is good news for those who are wondering when they are going to get their interview appointment letter from the NVC. I want to share our experience after we were DQ'd at the NVC. Here are the dates: DQ on March 14 2022. Interview appointment letter: March 21 2022. Interview date: April 11 2022 (Rio de Janeiro) I think it is important and relevant to share when good things happen! I would love to see someone posting this information, because give us an idea of how long it is taking to get an interview scheduled at Embassies abroad. Since they don't share this information. Miracles happen!!!! We are extremely happy!!!! Good luck to all of you! God bless!
