  1. I had my medical yesterday at Knightsbridge’s and my experience echos the positive accounts shared by other users. It’s nowhere near invasive as one would imagine and the people working there really are lovely. One thing that really made the experience an easy one (other than turning up with everything they asked for) was the medical letter I acquired from my GP regarding my long history of depression and agoraphobia. The physician conducting the medical assessment remarked that the letter was excellent and provided all the necessary information. The only question I was asked was if I had received counselling to which my answer was no, I wasn’t questioned any further. If you need a medical letter from your GP especially from one that doesn’t know you (as was the case with me) consider providing them with this outline and a note explaining your history in your own words and how you currently feel. It might provide some helpful insight and gives them something to refer to once you have left. This is the outline I provided the GP with as the basis for my letter: Diagnosis? Treatment? Duration of treatment and illness? Any prior or subsequent mental health or illness? Have there been any incidents of self harm, harm to others or suicide attempts? What is the prognosis and your opinion of the patients mental state. Is she a risk to herself or to others? I used my appointment to discuss my history and current mental state and explained that these questions needed to be addressed in the letter which they were and she even included parts of the note which I wasn’t expecting. I know it won’t guarantee the same results but it helped me and the Knightsbridge physician’s reaction made it feel worth sharing. 🤓
  2. Hello, My husband has reached the two year mark on his conditional resident visa, and we sent in our paperwork (I-751). We never received a reminder of this, and did not send the paperwork in exactly 90 days before. We sent our paperwork in December 20th, which they sent back saying that there were problems with the packet. We fixed the problems and sent it back in. They received and accepted the packet, acknowledging this at the end of January, and sent us a letter stating that my husband was to attend an interview for his biometrics February 14th. We went to that interview and that was it. However, we never received a letter giving him the extension on his green card, which USCIS says was supposed to have arrive with the biometrics letter. His green card expires today and we are very confused as to what we need to do. We called USCIS two days ago and the person we spoke to said that we needed to make an appointment at a field office and request an "Aided Stamp". The nearest office was 6 hours away, so my husband drove there just for them to tell him that they would not give it to him and that he needed to just wait for a letter. Is this true? What should be done now? The person at the office said that he is not illegal because he started the process for the removal of conditions before his green card expired, but we are quite concerned. Any clarity on this would be helpful. Thank you, dhm2
  3. Hi guys, I am trying to get a good idea of who has already been scheduled for ghana for family based (no K-1 please) visa recently? Please reply and if you can, please let me know the Case Completion Date and the Visa Interview Date as well. Thank you all.
  4. Ok so 9 weeks ago my Russian wife got a notification after receiving her Work Permit and Advance Parole card that said USCIS would send us a letter for her upcoming green card interview. We never got any notification for when/where the interview would take place and USCIS kinda rudely told us to be patient and wait indefinetly when I called. Whats the typical wait time, just to receive a letter stating an interview time for green card? I'm hearing it could be months ? Is there any way to expedite it or find out why they want an interview at all ? My friends wife from Indonesia had her green card mailed to her with no interview necessary at all. It's literally screwing my wife's life up as she desperately wants to attend university but cant do so without the green card and permanent residency. Any info on how long we can expect JUST to receive the letter showing date/time for green card, and how long we should expect to wait for it.
  5. When I recently visited my fiancee in Albania, I forgot to have her write out her letter of intention and sign it. Is a scan of her letter with the signature sufficient? Or do I need her to mail her letter to me, with ink on it, which may add a couple of weeks before I could send it in?
  6. Hello, here I am again. So here is my concern. This morning I received an email from NVC (PLEASE SEE EMAIL BELOW). I have checked the status on ceac.state.gov and it says that our case is still "In Transit". I called USEM and I was advised to wait for the next email stating that I can already set up an appointment for an interview. Once the status is already "Ready" in the ceac.state.gov and we don't get the letter or email from NVC or USEM. Should I go ahead and just get a screenshot of this and bring it to the interview along with this email that I received today? Are these letters required to be brought in the interview? Or should I just wait for the NVC confirmation letter or USEM letter? I read a lot of people stating that the letter from NVC or USEM did not come. Just worried and I want to start whatever I can do from here on to avoid delays. Thank you. Sorry for asking lots of questions. I've bee anxious about the process. Hehehe. Peace! Dear ********, The National Visa Center (NVC) received your fiancé (e)’s/spouse’s approved I-129F petition from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). NVC will now forward the petition to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate in Manila, Philippines. Please note that the transfer process can take several weeks.

  7. Hi, if the marriage of content letter for my fiancée was worded almost the same way as my marriage letter of content how badly will that effect us? Basically, my fiancée wording was as if I was the one coming to To Brazil to marry her. Her letter looks the same as how my correct letter looks except it has her name and signature stating that she will marry me. I noticed the letter was worded as if it was me in my drive where I got it saved. The English may have confused her. I already mailed our case in already and got the NOA1 already. Hoping something like this don’t affect us too badly.
  8. I seen a few examples online that had different mailing addresses for the intent to marry letter. Could anyone tell me the current address? Maybe it could of changed again? What is the current address that me and my fiance need to put on the letter?
  9. Hi Friends, We filed for my ROC in August 2017. I received a letter I-797c from USCIS yesterday stating that USCIS does not requires my Bio-metric and will be using my existing Bio-metric for back ground check, which were taken during Adjustment of status Bio-metric appointment. Also the letter has my case number on it. I have few question and It would be really nice if I can get answers to them. 1. As per USCIS letter I do not need to do anything at this time. So should really just relax and not do any thing or am I required to send some paper work. 2. Does letter means that someone is looking into my file now? 3. As I mentioned I sent my ROC last year August 2017 but when I check the case status online with the case number provided on letter, it shows Following content. " Case Was Received At My Local Office On March 4, 2018, we received your Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence, Receipt Number WACXXXXXXXXXX, at your local office. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address." I was wondering why is there this date difference. I received my NOA1 from USCIS for receiving my Petition Letter in September 2017 itself. Do I need to call them or get an attorney help. 4. Also Does "Case was received at my local office" mean that it is in San Jose now as I reside in San Jose with my wife? 5. Does it means that I would be going for the interview for sure(I don't have any problem with interview)? Your replies would be highly appreciated.
  10. I am due to attend my k1 visa interview at the embassy in London next week (16 March). I have scheduled everything online, as instructed.. but i have not received any letter in the mail confirming my interview date/time.. is this essential? I have seen some posts saying that the staff at the embassy ask to see your appointment letter first ? Help !
  11. Hello, i am a Brazilian and my husband is a American citizen, we got married October 2017, in the beginning of 2017 I did some elderly care for 3 months. Can I use this 3 months of work to help with the Affavidit of support like add to my husband income for 2017? if not is anybody know if I need to file my taxes for 2017 if I am changing my status separate from my husbands? We are a little confused on the Affavidit of support form.
  12. I have received my interview letter in email from the NVC for February and am in the process of scheduling my medical examination. Will the NVC be sending me anything personally or will they send everything they have to the embassy. I ask because I have heard people say the NVC will send you a package before your interview with documents you should bring to the interview.
  13. 8/1/17 - Received the email below: Case records indicate a call-in letter was mailed to the Applicant on 27-JUL-2017. Consular Section U.S. Embassy – Accra, Ghana I have been emailing asking if an electronic copy can be sent to me, the petitioner because of the sub-par postal mail system in Ghana. After 10 days with no response, they finally responded. 8/10/17 - Received the email below: The overwhelming majority of our applicants do receive their call in letters. If Applicants do not receive their call-in letters within 1 month of mailing, they are advised to email us and we will give them instructions on how to retrieve it person. We do not email call-in letters. Consular Section U.S. Embassy – Accra, Ghana So since I will not be receiving an electronic copy of the letter, here are my questions: What is a call in letter? What does it mean? What do they typically say? Is this something thats different per case or everyone's letter is the same? Per VG, no one ever actually receives this letter OR they receive it long after they have already interviewed. In this case I've read that we are to print the email chain between embassy and I and the CEAC case status update and just go to embassy and pick up the packet. My fear is that those effort will be in vain since we dont have the letter. Is there a specific day of the week and time where they allow us to pick up these packets? Is there a cost associated with picking this up? Does this mean my husband has an interview date? Can anyone shine any light on this "call in letter" process?
