  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. Ladies and gentlemen... A tide is coming in... I'm sure everyone this process is essential to knows by now that as of October 1, 2021, any COVID vaccine recognised by the W.H.O. is a requirement for immigration. October 1 also marks the beginning of a new fiscal year for the DHS. The US embassy in Kingston has also shared on Nationwide News and in the AUSE column of the Jamaica Observer that they have instructed the NVC to begin scheduling appointments in October for cases that have been DQ'd, current and waiting. No word yet on whether or not the embassy will host a FB LIVE consular conversations to, again, drive home more confidence in the process and progress. I am relieved for this next page turning. I've been waiting almost nine years (F11). Now I'm awaiting patiently some sort of news that anyone who's been at the NVC forever has finally received an interview letter. These letters, I believe, are to go out this month. Maybe they have already. I don't know. Has anyone who has been DQ'd and current from March 2020 received an interview letter as yet from categories F11 - F4? And not as a result of an expedited approval, just the normal route? Also, word to the wise, Please go get vaccinated if you are still interested in immigrating. Or if you need an exemption from the requirement, work on it now. You don't want any further delays for your case that could be avoided. -Get all your other shots necessary. -Get latest tax returns from your petitioner. -If you lived in another country for more than six months, at least find out the process to request one so you can act quickly when your time comes. -If you received treatment for any ailment that could make you inadmissible under the INA, request those files from your doc/hospital. the medial physician will need it. And won't send over your medical results to the embassy unless they have it. -Also, inform yourself about what is considered a normal internal body temp to have. Ask what your temperature reading is right after it is taken. AMHUSM has asked people to go tested and refuse to send over medical until a PCR test is done. Feel free to add any other tidbits I haven't mentioned to ensure the process is smooth for all of us waiting. It's time to wrap this up.
  3. This thread for persons with the same visa category that I have. I have been DQ from December 2,2020 with no updates from NVC. My case is basically stuck like the others. I sent an expedite request on June 8. Fingers crossed I want to know what’s everyone’s case

  5. So my husband did his interview on Friday July 16,they needed my updated tax info,since his case was there sitting for over a year. We sent them the following Monday and we have yet to hear any info from them,over a month after. Is this normal. How much longer are we gonna have to wait?
  6. I was DQ'd early October 2020. I am also in the F-1 category, daughter over 21 of a US Citizen (mom). I'd like to start this thread for those in a similar position waiting for an interview after being DQ'd during the proclamation/suspension in Jamaica. Last April made EIGHT years waiting and I am just beside myself at this point. Any news to share? I also got an email in March from the NVC reminding me that I am DQ's and that they'll keep in touch basically until I get an interview date.
  7. Does anyone know at which stage dna is requested for adult children?

  9. Hi, I wanted to know if there's anyone in Jamaica in the F4 category who has received an interview since covid started(2020). If so, how long did it take between u getting DQ to you getting the interview email/letter?
  10. Hi everyone, I checked the forums and I'm not sure if I see to many concerns about this topic yet. My husband has been here almost a year and has not received his green card because he has not been able to get an appointment to complete his biometrics. Also, I saw a YouTube video that said biometric appointment have not only been backlogged due to COVID but also the Trump administration. Does anyone have more information about this? My husband's main concern involves traveling because he does not want to travel without his green card.
  11. 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.
  12. Hello! First of all, kudos to everyone going through the immigration process. It is teeth grinding and requires so much patience. It is a test I hope I pass. I became documentarily qualified on October 2. I am also in the FB1 category. Mom filed for me. Interested in getting updates from applicants like me in Jamaica. Breakdown of my journey: Priority Date March 2013 USCIS Approved December 2019 NVC Received my case February 2020 DQ October 2, 2020 (COVID caused this) Now I'm waiting to see how much longer it will take for an interview. COVID is a real pain in my rear end. UGH
  13. Good day everyone I am new. I currently doing a K1 visa my paperwork’s at the embassy. I didn’t get a letter from the embassy To book the appointment , however based on the embassy email they said first come first serve.. I made an appointment for the 20 of October however there is no medical appointment available I’m really worried. Andrews stated that I can do it after the interview date and theN courier service the passport back to the embassy. Also is there any follow up interview questions anyone can give me or who had the interview before?
  14. My fiancé and I got lucky last week and was able to book 1 of the very few open available dates for k1 visa interviews in Jamaica. We emailed the embassy to make sure it was real and they said they opened a few dates and to book one expeditiously and so we did! September 28,2020. visa status on temporary refusal as they are awaiting 1 missing document from us! So don’t give up guys, your time is coming too ❤️
  15. Hi, I completed my medical in Jamaica a week ago and received a call yesterday to come in to review my results with the doctor. I tried to find out why and was told the doctor will discuss with me. I asked if I needed to bring anything and was told $1000 jamaican dollars. I am really worried. Does this mean I failed my medical? Anybody else experienced this?
  16. Hello everyone, I am the U.S. Citizen and my fiancé and I have filed a K1 fiancé visa. I received a letter from the NVC stating that they have sent our approved petition to the consulate in Kingston, Jamaica and that the consulate will contact my fiancé when they are ready to process his case. I’m assuming that when they are ready they will send us what is known as packet 3. It has been 1 week since then and so far neither of us have received packet 3, follow up emails or etc from the consulate. Also, When I checked the ceac website to track our case status it says “ready”. So I am confused as what to do next. So my questions are: How long does it usually take to receive packet 3? Should we receive packet 3 automatically or do we have to email them about it? Should we wait until they contact us or can we go ahead and gather the necessary documents we need. Any answers or information will be well appreciated and thank you in advance!
  17. Hi all, I want to know if anyone else has experienced what I’ve gone through with consular administrative processing or 221g case refusal. Jamaica US Embassy. Interview date 11 August 2020. So my Ir1 cases has been refused and After the interview my Husband and stepchildren were given 221g (Husband needs to provide proof of ongoing relationship with kids and find a new joint sponsor). They were asked to return the next day with the evidence for the kids. And They did. Luckily I was able to find a new joint sponsor and was able to resubmit new I-864s with supporting financial evidence that same day of the initial interview. At the second interview the consular officer wouldn’t give a decision on our case that day and wouldn’t review the new information that was resubmitted. However, they did give my husband and my 19 year old step daughter a stokes interview. They still kept their passports. But the cases are still showing refused on CEAC but I’m seeing last case updated date changing. FIRST ISSUE: There didn’t accept our original sponsor who made over 100k For the last three years. The sponsor did sponsor 2 others (her parents) and has 1 dependent. So that’s 4 total people in her household plus she was to sponsor my husband and 2 stepchildren. 7 people total. They didn’t accept her AOS because she lives in a different state from me. I thought that was very weird because nothing stated the sponsor had to live in the same state. At the initial interview, consular concerned with what our family size will be if the join us. It will also be 7. That’s why we got the joint sponsor. SECOND ISSUE: In the stokes interview They were concerned about the kids migrating with their father without the mother. The mother gave us a sworn statement giving us permission to take the kids to the US. What could be going on? This situation has me so confused. We definitely proved proof of a bona fide marriage. There is no question they can ask them that they don’t know. So I can’t understand what is taking so long for them to give us a decision. What do you all think is going on? Should I be worried?
