  1. Hi everyone. Please is the current processing time in Nigeria encouraging? My Priority date (CR-1) is 28th of May 2021 and I'm considering transferring my case to Lagos as I may not be able to get Germany tourist visa to go for my interview. Thank you in advance for your advice.
  2. Has anyone recently gotten a tourist visa in naija? I would like my future mother in law to come for our wedding but we are getting no feedback at all from the embassy and appointments are years out. Any help appreciated
  3. Hi everyone My husband and I have been waiting for NVC to schedule an interview. Our case was DQ October 28th 2020. Has anyone gotten an interview yet with similar DQ?
  4. Hey guys, I haven’t been seeing new dates for interviews at the US embassy in Nigeria. Anyone know what’s going on? We were making a lot of progress! 😭
  5. Okay I’m here to whine because I find this to be ridiculous. I was looking at visa statistics for Lagos Nigeria and there were 6 K1 visas processed in March compared to 180 CR-1 visas 254 IR-1 Visas and over 1700 B1/B2 visas!!!! How is this fair???? I can’t reunite with my fiancé but they can process tourist visas??? And marriage visas are priority but not fiancé visas??? If my fiancé was here he’d be my husband. I’m so frustrated. Been sitting at the NVC for a year in two weeks!!! This is so unfair. I’m so upset. Sorry I needed to vent somewhere
  6. Hi everyone, I have been given an interview date for next week and my fiancée and I have been very anxious. I have done my medicals and all that is left is the interview. We stayed up late yesterday putting together a photo album for my interview so I slept around 5am then woke up by 10am only to find two missed calls from the embassy. Naturally we are worried because we dont know what this means. Has anyone on here been called roughly a week before their interview?
  7. We are eagerly awaiting our NOA2 this month and I’m wondering how our other Nigeria k-1-ers are doing for appointment times and such. Has anyone out there recently been denied their K-1 visa? Has anyone had to wait beyond 7 months for their NOA2? How soon after your NOA2 were you able to schedule an interview? TIA!
  8. Hello guys. Still waiting on things to move forward in Lagos but I’m looking at the website to make an appointment and it keeps saying you are reaching the maximum number of times you can view this page. Is that right? How else do we check if their appointments available if we reach the maximum number of times to view the page? And has anyone had any luck with the K-1 visa recently?
  9. Hello everyone! Honestly I’m FRUSTRATED with Lagos embassy. They cite COVID as the reason they are not processing K1 visas but have been processing IR-1/CR-1 visas since late last year! We need to raise our voices and fight for our rights! We have been separated from our loved ones for far too long. It’s been a year for me and I’m still stuck at the NVC. You can’t talk to anyone at the embassy except the operator who is RUDE. And the emails just give you the standard automated response. Please who is with me? I’m so angry. What can we do? I know there’s a petition but there are less than 1000 signatures https://www.change.org/p/president-of-the-united-states-resume-k1-visa-processing-in-nigeria?redirect=false Does anyone have suggestions? Our love and relationships are not less important than others. We too desire to marry and begin our families!
  10. Hi everyone! Ive been receiving MULTIPLE emails about the process I took and how come my own case seems to be going fast and first and fore most I’d like to inform everyone I did a lot of research, was very proactive and was consistent with emailing/calling NVC. So I’ve made notes on the steps and procedures I personally took after receiving my NOA2 and I will post them here for anyone interested. This is for the K1 VISA ONLY. Not the K3 spousal visa. Please be advised I am not asking anyone to follow my steps, step by step. I am just merely offering information on how I did ours. Thanks and Goodluck! 0. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/the-immigrant-visa-process/interview.html this link will provide information about the steps NVC takes once your case is approved by USCIS. ‭2. (603) 334-0888‬ This is the number for NVC you’ll call to obtain the case and invoice id numbers. You’ll need your USCIS case number, the full name of both the applicant and beneficiary and both birthdays in order to receive any information from them. So have that in handy. Some nvc officers will also ask for email address. If you don’t have one on file with them you can update it at this time. You can also request to add an email address to your case. They have an email address you can email to obtain information but their response time to the emails is terrible. You’d have to wait weeks, even months. Note: if you call them and it’s been 2 weeks or more since your case has been approved with USCIS and they’re still telling you they have not received your case, hang up. Call back again then tell the next person you need to expedite your case due to severe financial loss and you were told you needed your case id number to do so. It’ll be better if the petitioner calls NVC for this information. Remember to get both the case and invoice ID number 0. https://ceac.state.gov/ceacstattracker/status.aspx once you obtain a case number from NVC, this is the link you’ll use to check the status of your case at NVC. It’ll say “At NVC” if NVC is still working on your case. “In Transit” if it is on its way to the consulate. “Ready” once the consulate has received it and this is the time they’d prefer for you to set up your interview. Though they’ll be a slight delay waiting for them. As long as your status changes to ready before your interview date you should be fine. 0. https://ceac.state.gov/GenNIV/Default.aspx This is the link you’ll use to fill out the DS-160. You can either fill this out prior to paying the $265 visa fee at GTBank or after. I’d suggest after so you can set up interview immediately after filing the DS-160. 0. http://www.ustraveldocs.com/ This is the link you’ll use to set up interview. Have this in handy with you when setting up the interview: The confirmation number/visa application number from the DS-160 confirmation page. Your receipt number from the GTBank for the visa fee you paid, the case ID number and the USCIS case number. 0. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/family-immigration/nonimmigrant-visa-for-a-fiance-k-1.html#1 This link provides a guide on the steps and procedures for the K1 visa. It’ll give you information on the documentation you need to have ready, an overview or much more. 0. https://travel.state.gov/content/dam/visas/iv-dv-supplemental/LGS-Lagos.pdf this link will provide you with the steps to take for medical exam. It’ll also have the pre-interview checklist and list of approved physicians. Please call them or rather go see them to make inquiries because the information the consulate gives online is inaccurate to what actually happens. Their hours of operation for medical exam is not what it says online. They are not open from 8am-5pm. They’re only open from 8am-10am. Make inquiries first! Call, go there! Don’t assume. 0. Here’s the information on how to obtain the police certificate : Applicants need to contact the Deputy Inspector General, Criminal Investigation Department, Nigeria Police Force, Alagbon Close, Ikoyi, Lagos, Nigeria. The applicant should bring information regarding their full name, place and date of birth, nationality, passport number, date and place of issuance (for current passport or passport used during applicant's stay in Nigeria), exact periods of residence in Nigeria and addresses where applicant resided. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/Visa-Reciprocity-and-Civil-Documents-by-Country/Nigeria.html This is link I got the information from. 0. You’ll need your original birth certificate and a photo copy for the interview. Also I’d advise getting the declaration of age and having that handy. My uncle said you’ll need that once you migrate here. You can obtain your birth certificate from the local government/hospital you were born in. Make sure the name on the application filed with uscis matches the name on the birth certificate. I don’t know anything about name changes so you might have to make inquiries on your own about name changes. You can obtain the declaration of age at the National Population Commission. Here’s their link with their contact info, location e.t.c http://population.gov.ng/contact-us/ 0. For anything that you do throughout this process, I’d suggest having your international passport with you when you go make inquiries or go to these appointments. Get new passport photos. Remember they are only valid if you’ve gotten them done within 6 months and has not passed the 6 months gap. Also, make photocopies and also have the originals of every single document you are taking with you to your interview. People often get confused so let me elaborate on this, the DS-260 is for people filing spousal K3 visa. Their process is different. The K1 visa applicants fill out the DS-160. On the affidavit of support. The I-864 is for k3 visas/family based visas. The I-134 is for K1 visas, b1/b2 visas etc. I hope this information helps! Good luck on your process and I wish you all the best.
