  1. Hello, US Embassy Jamaica are processing IR1/CR1 interviews starting with reschedules of interviews cancelled in March/April due to Covid-19. Anyone been rescheduled yet? What about new interviews for DQ's since April? I became DQ on June 17th, no interview date yet. Trying to get an idea of how long interviews are taking to be scheduled.
  2. I am not confident I am using the correct postal codes. I am using JMAAW07 for Kingston 11. As I understand it the 7 digit system was never rolled out completely. It's so confusing. Even my fiance's mother and father don't know what their postal code is. My question is if I don't use the correct code, will my application be rejected?
  3. Hi guys, So I'm required to get a certificate of no impediment for my visa interview. I collected the form to fill out at the rdg office, however the form is intended for a bride and groom as homosexuality is not legal here. Does anyone here knows how I should fill this out of if it would apply to me in this case? My fiancé and I are both females.
  4. Hello all quick question for Jamaica do you need an employee letter for the affidavit of support or will current pay stubs suffice? Thank you.
  5. Hello guys, I received a date for my husband's interview, and have registered online to schedule an appointment for his medical exam. Has anyone here completed the interview process before completing the medical exam and what was your experience? Thanks
  6. Hello everyone, my fiance had his interview on november 22 2016, at jamaican embassy in kingston. They issue him a white slip 221g. The additional documents they needed were my tax return transcript, and w2 1040. They gave me the option to email those documents. I emailed them the next day. When I go on the ceac website, it looks as though they've looked at his case, I see a date of december 12. This is the second time they've reviewed it, last time it was december 2. So it went from November 22, to dec 2, to dec 12. But status still says administrative processing. Can someone please tell me what's going? Im very nervous....im nervous because I'm hoping I have enough income to sponsor him. I have a household of 5 (including him) and made only 35,000 last year 2015. This year, I made 37,000. I see for a household of 5, I would have to have made at least 35,550. So I missed it by 550 dollars. Can someone please give me insight? Does k1 go by 100% or 125% poverty level? Will they turn him down because of This? I had to complete form i- 134 affidavit of support, if that helps. Thank you.
  7. Hey again, I wanted to know if there is a link on here that already has a step by step on how do the CR1. Also is there an updated estimated processing time for Jamaica, I've heard about 3 different time frames. Also my wife has a child under 18 and I was told that I have to do an application separately.
  8. Greetings, I'm new on here and wanted to know if we can use religious exemption for the medical examination. Here in the US I have no issues with it however I want to know if anyone has dealt with this issue for the CR1. My wife currently lives Jamaica and we wanted to know the process.
  9. I just received my NOA2 and I am planning for the future process now. The petitioner just finished her first year of working and would have made the 125% of Poverty line. She does not have 3 years earnings to show and about $15000 in Savings. How much attention is normally paid to this in Jamaica and is a co sponsor necessary?
  10. Long story short my brother in law went in for their interview with his wife, the officer said they were approved. They get a letter saying his wife was in a common law marriage and he needs to prove saying that the marriage ended. Anyone know how to obtain a certificate of No Impediment to Marriage/Single Status from Jamaica. That's the only thing I can think of to prove she wasn't married before they got married. Does anyone know anything else they can use to proved that she wasn't married before they got married. He is A US citizen she is from Jamaica. Thanks
  11. Greetings: I need immediate assistance. My fiancé went to his medical today and they refused to register him because the attached confirmation page is missing. we should them the confirmation of our appointment. It’s his picture with the barcode on it; however they are saying it’s the wrong confirmation page. Can someone please help me with this confirmation page?
  12. Hi Guys I cannot find my immunization card and it has been a hassle trying to get clinic to reissue Will this affect my medical if I can't produce a history of vaccines ? What can I do to prepare for medical in the meantime? Thank you
  13. Hi, I would like to know what others who have attended their interview at the Embassy in Jamaica did with their cell phones? My concern is if i get dropped off by a taxi from the Hotel, will easily be able to catch another from the Embassy? I'm only worried that if i don't have my phone i will not be able to call anyone after. Thanks for your help/advice!
  14. Hello guys!! I’m very new and I have a few questions regarding the income requirements. I know for a family of 4 the income level should be somewhere around the $32,187 for a family of 4. I was about $600 OVER this amount with just my work income..... How much over are they wanting you to be? Secondly, will any other income help such as child support, etc? Third, I want to be prepared with a co-sponsor so if they ask for it can I give it to them at the interview and they approve it then, or will I have to wait? What should I do? Any detailed information you can give me regarding the income would be so very helpful. My income for this year will be much higher when I do my taxes at the beginning of next year so I may not have to worry about it by time they require it for next year. I’m mailing the petition in a few weeks on November 30th. Anyone that has been through this process with a Jamaican I would to hear from you!
  15. Just finished my medical at Andrews this morning and thought I would share my experience should it be of any help to anyone. I live in the Cayman Islands and flew over to KNG for my medical and upcoming IV this week. My appointment was scheduled for 10:15am but thanks to this forum I arrived at 7am. There were already 19 people there waiting. At 7:30 we were ushered inside, given numbers and asked for our 4 photos with name on the back and our completed medical form (available on website). A super efficient gentleman was the maitre d of it all. As all my docs were in order, I somehow jumped from 20 to 11. Others were delayed by not having local contact numbers or photos. The room was freezing and I was glad I had a jumper. Once called, you head straight to the cashier. I paid just over J$23000. You are then ushered into various different rooms and seen by extremely efficient nurses: eyes, weight, height then back outside. Back in to see the doctor for the physical: undress to underwear, listen to chest. Tells me I only need flu vaccine. No ifs ands buts. Boom. Back out and pay 2300 for the jab. Ringmaster points to go outside to another building for blood. Boom. Then urine. Back downstairs and the ringmaster directs me to go get my jab. X-rays last. By 10:45am I was all done. It was a well-oiled machine! My advice would be to arrive as early as possible. By 8:30 the waiting room was standing room only. Best of luck to everyone on their journey! Fingers crossed for me on mine!
  16. My mom received her interview appt today for december (IR5), so I went to register the appt as stated on the embassy specific page of nvc. But when I tried to register it says something like "appointment not ready to be scheduled". The letter has a date, but I followed the below guideline that says it still needs to be registered. Has any jamaican applicants had this issue? Did you all (people with IR1, IR2, IR5) register your interview online or did you just go to the interview as normal? Thanks.
  17. Do we get to select the interview date or is the date just given to us?
  18. Hello new member K1 visa jamaica .. long story short we were put on 221g on October 28th. 1 being a letter of acquittal from a court case that was deemed inadmissible because my fiancé was the wrong suspect. Picking up police record nothing is on it he has copy of court case. He has went to the courts to get a letter of acquittal but they wont write one because nothing is on police report and said embassy should be able to just take court records... we have been getting the run around since the 28th.. who do we call ? Im thinking his lawyer that handled the case may be able to type one up ? ANYONE HELP !
  19. We are currently waiting for our case number from NVC, in the meantime I have been doing some online research and preparing for the next steps. We live in Grand Cayman so will be going to Jamaica for the medical and the interview. I have read online that the medical has to be done a minimum of 10 days before the interview. Also then if the interview goes well they keep the passport. how long does it take to get the passport back? We wont be able to travel back to Cayman without the passport so just wondering how long we should plan on being in Jamaica. Thanks in advance!
  20. Hi, I am excited about this website and I am glad that we are all here to support each other. So I got married in May 2019, filed my I-130 in June 2019, and my K3 in August 2019. I had no idea that I could file the K3 Visa until I did some research because I would have filed it sooner, but the immigration office told me that my I-130 would be processed/approved before the K3 visa. The K3 visa application was free so I did it anyway, so I guess I have nothing to lose. So with that being said, when I checked the processing times for the Nebraska Center for both the I-130 and K3... it says that the processing time is shorter for the K3 visa. Please provide your thoughts and opinions, thanks. P.S. It would be even better to get comments from individuals that actually works at some of these processing centers 👍
  21. I've completed the DS-160 and need to pay the application fee. After clicking on the link https://ais.usvisa-info.com/ should I click on Nonimmigrant visa or Immigrant visa? If I fill out the Nonimmigrant visa, it also asked for visa class and I noticed "K-1" is not an option. I'm so confused
  22. My husband went to go pick up his police report from the MoBay office today and was told that the report won’t be available until December because the Kingston office is closed. Is anyone else having this issue or know why there is such a huge delay in getting a police report in Jamaica?
  23. Hi, Long story short, we're trying to get my sister-in-law an expedited appointment at the Jamaica Embassy for a non-immigrant visa so she can come to the memorial service for her mom. As I understand in order to do that she has to fill out form DS-160 here and then make an appointment at the embassy site here . At some point we know we have to pay an fee for the expedited appointment, that's fine. Problem is Sister-in-law says she can't fill out the DS-160 form, keeps getting kicked from the site, I don't know why. She wants to use an agency to do the forms and arrange the appointment. Does anyone have experience with an agency in Jamaica that does this legitimately? Long story, I'm a U.S. citizen my wife is from Jamaica and immigrated over on a spouse visa. it took 2 years, will update Visa Journey profile eventually, this site was immensely helpful. Her mom was in the U.S. on H2B Visa when she was diagnosed with a terminal illness and eventually died in the U.S. We're trying to get her sister over for the service. She, the sister-in-law, has been denied a tourist visa several times. This time is different because she has a full-time job and we have the correct letter from the funeral home saying they are doing the service. We don't have the death certificate yet because state bureaucracy takes time. All we need is for her to fill out the DS-160 and get an appointment at the embassy.
  24. Good Day All I need some advice. Our case is at NVC we recieved email to pay fees and now my DS 260 is unlocked to fill out. We did consular filing; staying in my home country until everything is sent to my consulate for interview. Based on the timeline I suspect this can be as early as December once I submit AOS ans DS 260, correct? Our wedding was in June 2018 and that would mean I would get a 2 year GC. As much as I really want to be next to my husband, I don't want to wait 2 years for conditions to be removed and go through all this paper work again. Would you advise to delay filling out the AOS and DS 260? And for how long? What implications would this have on my process maybe? I also read somewhere that after all paperwork is done at consulate and immigrant visa is issued, the applicant has 6 months to leave their home country and join spouse in the US. If this is true, should I go ahead with paperwork now, and lets say I get a January interview date, then can I leave my country June (after wedding date) and hopefully get IR-2 stamped at the point of entry ? Thank you guys in advance, I really appreciate your help thus far.
  25. Hello All, I am new here. Heard great things about this site. I am so confused and lost. I recently went for an interview and was denied . I received this letter here is there any evidence or anything I can do to submit for review? I am 32 years of age with 2 children and my Mother petitioned for me . My cousin sponsored us. I believe it has something to do with me never holding a job. I do have plans to go to school if granted admittance. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance
