  1. Hi all, I'll be traveling to the US on my IR-1 visa next month and the airline API section asks for either a "green card" reg number or a visa number, depending on which applies to you. My question is, do I choose visa or green card. seems like both could be technically correct but just don't want to do anything that will cause a headache at the airport, as they can be a bit strict at check in. thanks in advance!
  2. Hi I've seen on the forums people mention that for the Medical exam, if you have depression mentioned on your personal care summary from your GP you need a letter from the GP stating you are not a risk to yourself and others? I had a small period of depression almost 3 years ago now. I've inquired with my GP about getting a letter as I want to be prepared for when I have the medical (hopefully some point next year). They want to charge me for a private consultation to be able to write a letter on my mental health as its been 2 years since they've seen me. Is this necessary to get?
  3. Hi all! My recruiter submitted my DS-260 a couple of days ago. Any idea of how long it will take to become DQ'd? Thanks! (feel free to remove in the wrong place!)
  4. Had my medical today, it was after my interview because I couldn’t get an appointment. I spoke to the lady working the reception and explained how everyone at the embassy along with me didn’t have their medicals yet. She sort of sighed and say yes, people are finding it really difficult to get medical appointments prior to the interview, which is causing them to be extremely busy. (She seemed stressed but was very lovely) She said the reason was because the embassy is doing things in blocks, sending out interview letters and notifications in big blocks. So seems like they get a massive influx of appointments needed at the one time, which probably can’t help! A of bunch of folk there today had already done their interview too. thought it was an interesting note from the day and might answer some questions of folk waiting for their date after seeing so many get there’s, with only a day or two difference in DQ. Ps- staff were all lovely but I was there a good 3-4 hours mostly waiting, so keep that in mind!
  5. Hi guys, So I received an email today confirming my interview and my interview appointment is scheduled May 3rd. I have a slight problem. My husband will be starting his new job today and will not receive a paystub by the time I have my interview appointment. I have advised him to provide me with: - Updated I864 - Updated tax return - Letter from employer confirming he has started his job My husband will still be earning well over the poverty requirements so we will not need a co-sponsor. Will the lack of paystubs cause any issues? And will I need to take anything else? I am getting seriously worried.

  22. Hello, My husband and I are finishing our paperwork for submittal. One question we have regarding the I-130A — when entering addresses for the UK, in the ‘Province’ field, should it be left blank since there really aren’t provinces in the UK, or should we put the county? i.e for Manchester, put Lancashire as the Province? One other question, and I’m probably just nitpicking, but want to do it correctly… in the instructions for the 130 (not even sure if it says this in 130A instructions) it states to put NA in unused fields. Do people generally put NA throughout in all blank fields, or would you just do this in the first field of the section to indicate no info will follow? thanks in advance for any assistance!
  23. Hello! I have a lawyer, but she's taking forever on our I134 Affidavit of Support form for our K1. My fiance's interview is in London next week, so we need it asap. Is it ok if I just fill it out and email to him (with my supporting financial evidence)? Or legally does my lawyer have to do it? I keep reaching out and no response still. The I134 is all that's left that we need. Thanks!
  24. Hi Guys! I did my interview yesterday but has been given a 221g stating that my medical hasn’t arrived yet. I did my medical on August 23rd and upon receiving the vaccination worksheet, it stated that my visit date was Mar 10 2016. So I rang VisaMedicals hoping that they will sort it out but up until now they haven’t heard from the embassy yet. I was just wondering if any of you has experienced this kind of technical glitch and how long did you wait until they finally issued the visa? Thanks in advance!
