  1. Hi Friends, So my fiance was given a white 221g with administrative processing marked on it. His passport was also kept. I emailed the Islamabad embassy asking them why he wasnt issued a visa. I got a reply back from them today. This is the reply:Dear Sir/Madam, Our records indicate that this case is in its final review. Please feel free to check back with our office after four weeks. So guys should i consider this a good sign? They didnt write the usual its in AP so just wait for it response. Plz give any feedback you guys might have!
  2. Hi all! My wife (the petitioner) and I (the beneficiary) received our Receipt Notice on October 19, 2021 for our I-130 petition. Since then, we have not received any other communications. We have received an estimated timeline for approval of around September 2022. We understand that time is something we can't change (duh!) but we wanted to make extra sure that we had our file submitted correctly, so that it can hopefully move as smoothly and efficiently as possible! At the time we submitted our petition, we uploaded the following documents: Form I-130A Petitioner's 2 passport sized photos Beneficiary's 2 passport sized photos Petitioner's birth certificate Petitioner's information page of passport Marriage certificate (married in 2017) 2 separate lease documents showing joint tenancy Bank statements from joint account from 2019, 2020, and 2021 These are still the only documents we have on our USCIS account's Documents page. Our questions are: Are we missing anything obvious? (we've double-checked the requirements list, but you never know) We currently only have the information page of the petitioner's passport uploaded. Should we upload all pages of the passport to our file? Also, we have stamps showing a trip we made together to Mexico, and the beneficiary has numerous entry stamps to the USA over the past few years too. Would it be worthwhile to also upload all passport pages of the beneficiary? On Form 1-130A, Part 4, 6.a. (Spouse Beneficiary's signature), the beneficiary did not sign this section digitally or with pen. I remember reading that if this form is submitted digitally, no signature is necessary. Can anyone confirm this is true? Should we also upload 5-10 photos of ourselves in various places, or will the leases and joint accounts likely be enough to prove our relationship is legit? The beneficiary has previously lived abroad in 4 different countries (including the country we are applying from - Canada). We understand the next step in the process will require him to get a Criminal Record Check from each of those 4 countries. Should this be something we begin now? We are happy to get them organized and ordered now, but our only concern was if USCIS had a time limit for when they can be ordered. I.e. Please submit criminal record checks dated within 3 months of today. In that case, the CRCs we order now could potentially expire' down the line. Any help regarding this too would be much appreciated! Have a great day!
  3. Hi everyone, we filed the I129F on December 2020, got the NOA1 in february. we did not receive any USCIS NOA2 to inform us that the document was approved. we received directly the letter from NVC with our case number on August 31 2021 telling that they would forward the case to the embassy in Naples, Italy in several weeks. Its middle of October and I did not receive any email or letter from the embassyin Naples telling me that they received the case. In the meantime I already collected all documents and Ds160 filed. On the CEAC status it shows as NO STATUS. Can anyone help? Do you know if currently they are processing k1 visas in Naples?
  4. Medical Date/Time: March 30th, 2021 / 11:30am. Type of Visa: K-1 Visa medical. Total duration: 2 hours. Gender: Male. When I arrived a few minutes before my appointment time, there was a lady sitting outside of the entrance to the clinic on the 22nd floor checking people in. I gave my 5 passport photos, vaccinations records, interview confirmation letter, and confirmation of payment for the interview. Once I was accepted in I went to the receptionist who took my driver's license and photocopied it (they asked for my passport but any government-issued photo ID is acceptable), gave me back my vaccination records, and given a stack of forms fill out. I don't remember how long I waited after giving back the forms but I was then called by a nurse who checked over my vaccination record again and said it was very rare for someone to have all their vaccinations done beforehand; I suggest you vaccinate before going because the prices range from $50-100 (I had MMR, Hep A + B, flu, TD - tetanus and diphtheria without the pertussis because this was a booster shot, every other vaccine was taken care of as a child), took my blood, height and weight measurements, eye test both with and without my glasses, and a urine sample. I went back to the waiting room until another nurse came to do my chest x-ray for turburculosis. I went back to the waiting room again until the doctor called for me. I was told to remove everything except for my boxers (I feel like I could've gotten away with wearing shorts over my boxers). I was asked questions regarding my health history, ears/blood pressue/lungs/lymph nodes near armpits/2 spots around the groin and abdomen were checked. I paid a total of $540 even though the website says $595. The x-ray CD and vaccination records (if you had any done there) are sent to your home address and the medical envelope is sent to the embassy. Reply if you have questions and a like if this helped you 🙂
  5. I'm trying to add my naturalization review experience to the review section, and I can't find Nashville on the list here: https://www.visajourney.com/consulates/cis_review.php The office opened in 2018 and handles all aspects of immigration as far as I know.
  6. Why do the arrows in the process diagram turn red?
  7. My husband and I filed for a hardship pardon for him to get his Visa. We were approved and went to our appointment in Ciudad Juarez but he tested positive for marijuana. So we were told he had to wait 6 months then resubmit his medical in order to continue the process. Then wait for instructions. My question is, how long after we resubmit his clean medical records will we have to wait for them to respond? Weeks? Months? And once they get the medical records will they give him his Visa or do you think we will have to wait again for another appointment/interview at the consulate? We we have waited almost the full 6 months. I'm just wondering if this will turn into way longer than that after we resubmit.
