Does this help the beneficiary's case at all? If attendance is possible, is the petitioner questioned, too, or is s/he made to stand apart and not participate? Also, can the petitioner enter the Embassy without an appointment?

    K1 Islamabad interview in Urdu

    Anyone who has given his / her interview in Urdu got approved? Because I heard someone if you not choose English they thinks that a person who is going to migrating doesn't know Urdu so that makes negative impact is that right?
  10. Hi VJ members, I had an interview today for CR1 in Islamabad. Everything was very smooth the interview was hardly 5 minutes and at the end, that lady gave me this 1-page white form, initially I was not sure that what this form is and I didn't even read it at the counter. I asked her to what to do with this form and she said just keep it with yourself and the form title is Immigrant Visa Section (Modernized Immigrant Visas) and it says you visa has been refused under the provision of the immigration and nationality act and also section 221g (your visa application is refused for AP) is tick marked. Under this, there is General Requirements and Evidence of economic solvency and they both are highlighted with yellow ink. Also about the passport, she said that you will get it after 1 month. My wife was also there with me and we went together to the counter but the lady asked her to stay there in the waiting area. Now I don't know what to do or what to upload and the status of my case is not changed on CEAC website. 1 more thing that initially we submitted the birth certificate from the hospital with my SSC certificate to USCIS and then NVC wasn't accepting it then we uploaded the FRC from Nadra and now on interview we took the original birth certificate from Union Council and we also gave them FRC and the hospital issued birth certificate. Please share your thoughts. Thanks alot!
  11. Hey Guys, I don't have a Birth Certificate from the Union Council. I do have the FRC and the certificate from the hospital but I don't have the one from the Union Council.

Please guide. Thanks

  13. Assalaamualaikum. I have a little situation. I had my interview last month at us embassy Islamabad, Pakistan for IR1. They kept my passport and asked me for domicile for my wife and tax paper of joint sponser (IRS paper) which i already had but they reject to receive them that time and said me to send us with your wife's domicile. We sent them written domicile and some proves for domicile and IRS Papers. After 4 days i got call from embassy and they told me the domicile you have sent is not accepted, my suggestion is that your wife go back to usa. You sent us exist stamp and her pic in front of post office. I did the same job. My wife left pakistan and i sent them stamp n picture of her with us post office. After 4 working days i checked my status on CEAC and my date was updated. And after 3 days including holidays date was again updated and then yesterday on 2 may, date was again updated but my wife got a email from embassy stating that:
  14. Hi everyone, I have my visa interview on the 17th of January. My fiance has just mailed me all the paper work and I noticed that I have the I-797C (NOA2) which is a copy sent by the NVC instead of the original I-797 (NOA2) that the embassy is asking for. Do they ask for the original I-797 (NOA2) or am I okay with a copy? In the financial docs he sent me there are photocopies of W2's. Are they sufficient or should I ask him to send me the original ones as well? Also - do I need to take copies of all docs or will they just see originals and return them (financial)? Will appreciate your input! Thanks! @Amnazaid @Sarac9
  15. After several attempts at our pregnancy, we couldn't have a child of our own. My wife's (green card holder) niece in Pakistan which she wants to adopt and bring her to USA. The family from which we want to adopt is struggling to survive financially with 4 kids. We aren't familiar with the process of adopting a child from Pakistan so any information we could get may b ed beneficial for us. I'm a US citizen. My wife is a GC holder but has applied for citizenship. Her niece is 8 years old.

  18. My mother attended her immigrant visa interview on July 19th, 2018 at Islamabad Embassy, Pakistan. The officer asked her general questions and whole process went smoothly. She was told at the end of interview that her she will receive her immigrant visa in 1-2 weeks and passport will be sent back to her. It's been over 3 weeks but we have not heard back from the embassy. Not sure what is causing the delay for her immigrant visa. We haven't received request to submit any additional document or were given 221G after the interview. Upon calling them they informed my mother that her visa is still in process (not administrative processing). I will appreciate if someone here can guide me about how long it took them to receive their passport once their visa was approved. Especially if it was to do with their parents application. Thanks.

  22. Hello. I recently renewed my Pakistan Passport as first time MRP since my previous 2 Passports were manual and expired. I had a choice of 5 and 10 year validity but I chose to do a 10 year even though I would be eligible for naturalization in 4 years and 9 month but my AOS is still pending so by the time my eligibility comes for naturalization, I would not have any issues with expired passport. Did I make a good decision by getting a 10 year validity? Price was $46 for 5 years and $83 for 10 years. Do I need to bring all my previous expired passports to the interview as well and if the IO makes the approval decision on the spot. Which page would they stamp it in the passport?
  23. Hi, I had my interview on 10th September 2018 at Islamabad consulate and at the end of the interview CO kept my passport and I was given 221(g) sheet asking to submit: Wedding photos and pictures of our time together Emails, chats Copies of my wife's passport pages showing entry and exit stamps We submitted everything asked on CEAC only(as I was told) on 4th October. It has been more than a week but I don't see any change in the last update date. Questions: Is it normal for no change in last update date after submitting the documents online? How long should I wait before making an inquiry? How long do they normally take to process such information? Anyone else who submitted documents only at CEAC and did not sent by mail? Here is some background information. We have been married for almost 3 years now (got married in the US). 1st year we lived apart while I got back to Pakistan. My wife moved to Pakistan almost 2 years ago and has been living here since then (besides going back home a couple of times). We had our Nikah after 6 months of my wife moving to Pakistan (My family had not met her before this as we were living in a different city). Shortly after that, we moved to my parents home as I switched jobs. We had been living with my family for almost a year now.
  24. I'm creating this thread to share my experience with showing Intent to Re-establish Domicile. I'm hoping other people with similar cases can also share their experience and help others. The Sponsor of an Immigrant for i864 needs to be either, Domiciled in the United States, or Show Proof of Re-establishment of Domicile in the United States, or Show Proof of Intent to Re-establish Domicile in the United States. As is obvious, number 1 is better than number 2, and both are better than number 3. I went for number 3, as I did not want to be separated from my husband and son for the amount of time it would take to Re-establish Domicile. My story: I'm a US citizen by birth, as both my parents were citizens. My parents moved to Pakistan when I was 4 years old. I haven't been back to the states since then. After my marriage, I wanted to settle in the US with my husband and son. So we filed for Immigration Visas for both of them. My son is not automatically a US citizen from birth, as he has only 1 US citizen parent who has not lived in the US "for a period of at least five years at some time in his or her life prior to the birth, of which at least two years were after his or her 14th birthday." That means that we needed to apply for a visa for him too, though he doesn't need an Affidavit of Support, (but instead a Form I-864W), and becomes a citizen upon entry into the US by an Immigration Visa. As I haven't filed any US taxes, and do not have US based income anyway, we needed a joint sponsor for my husband. Luckily, one of our relatives was willing to sponsor. Even so I needed to show Proof of Intent to Re-establish Domicile. These are the thing we gathered: An invitation letter to stay with a family member indefinitely. An Enrollment Agreement for my son in a Pre-school near her house. We opened a bank account, and transferred funds there. We used a bank statement as proof of this. My husband obtained a job invitation letter from a US based company. As I am a stay-at-home-parent to my 2 year old son, we explained that my husband was going to be the principle breadwinner for the family. I already had a Social Security Number Luckily these documents were sufficient, and our visa was approved. We gathered all these documents without leaving Pakistan, with the help of some family members abroad. More about how to do that in the next post.
