  1. Can someone please help me. I applied for B2 visitors visa last week and got rejected may be because I am a single mother and they thought I was looking for some opportunities in USA. Although I never had such intention in mind. Now I am getting a chance from my company to apply for B1 visa to attend a conference. What are my chances of approval?
  2. My wifes visa was just approved yesterday(May 3) here in CDJ Mex. They all say"it takes two weeks" for your visa and documents to be mailed to the courier of your choosing. We chose a DHL literally 10 minutes away so super close. Does anyone know realistically the wait times? And Can I pick it up before i even get my tracking number through email? We have a 3 month old with us and we really need to be able to cross back and go home. Thanks... anything helps, Idk how everything works here... like if I tip the DHL guy will he do a better job of "finding" her package?? Any help is greatly appreciated.
  3. Got my passport with the visa back today. To give everyone an idea or the waiting time post interview; Interview Date was Dec 18, 2018 My visa was issued on Thursday Dec 20, 2018. I got the notice of the tracking # and that package was picked up by Canada post on Thursday, Dec 27, 2018 (it sounds like a long time but, there was the weekend in between as well as Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing day, which were all weekdays, and offices r closed, so i lost 3 business days) The delivery date kept getting delayed, first it was Dec 28, 2018 and then changed to Dec 31, 2018. During both those days the status updates were very slow. Again, I had weekends and New Year's Holiday in the way. On Dec 31, 2018, I was getting concerned about my package since I had a flight booked for Jan 3, 2019, from before my interview date. So, I called Canada Post customer service, created a service ticket and talked to the supervisor about my situation. She put the package on high priority got on its case. I was still stressed because the tracking service was not updating and it was at huge Gateway distribution centre since Dec 30, 2018, and with all the back log due to the strike i was concerned on delivery delays. I called back on Jan 2, 2018 to talk to the supervisor again, and I was gonna ask if I can go pick it up myself (Ur still not allowed to), but then she said, I have good news, your package has arrived in your city as of this morning and should be at the post office for pick up at 11am. I was so happy, so much stress during this past week. As an overview, XpressPost is 2-5 business days Excluding all the interruptions (holidays), my package did arrive in that time frame. It may be beneficial to speak to a supervisor to expedite ur process if u have a flight booked from b4. So happy now to be going and seeing my husband. New Year, new chapter! All the best to everyone!
  4. So my husband had his interview on 9/6 as I previously posted, was told to get 2 forms back to the woman in 2 hours. He did . She was annoyed. Since, my co sponsor has been investigated, he’s a FEDERAL COP and I am his baby sister . Nothing cane up in their witch hunt . So HOW will my husband be notified? Mail? Email? Phone? The horrible hag didn’t say !

    Visitor Visa for Boyfriend

    Hello there, My boyfriend is going to apply for the B1 Visitor Visa. He lives in the UK and has a full time job, he would only be coming for two weeks as that’s the amount of days he gets off. He is from Poland which is not yet a Visa Waiver country and so needs to apply, though he as been living all most of his in the UK. When it comes to applying, on the Ds160 form, should he list my address as where he is staying or would it be better to put a hotel? He can say that it is a room he will rent for the vacation. Also, I live in a very touristy season for summer; which may help the case. I just want to make sure that he has a high chance of approval as I know that having a girlfriend in the US is almost a always a denial, so maybe it would be best if he didn’t mention it? Any advice would be appreciated. I’m just worried about him getting declined over something that can be prevented. If you have gone through the process before or have advice, please help; I will greatly appreciate it
  6. Good day everyone! I had my medical last July 9 and interview at the embassy on the 12th. Thankfully, I passed and now waiting for the visa to be delivered here in Maasin City, Southern Leyte. I would like to ask anyone who has an idea or have to wait for their visas too from the Visayas region, how long did it take? Thanks for your replies. God bless us!
  7. Hello. My boyfriend is applying for a US tourist visa but NOT applying for visa waiver program. It is a requirement in his country to attend an interview if his online application is approved. We are now in the process of doing the online application. It asks if he has ever been arrested or convicted of a crime. He has been arrested before in the past for "bodily harm". Basically he got into a fight with a guy, got arrested, but charges were dropped in lieu of monetary compensation to the victim. Since it was so long ago, and since there have been no arrests since, he has been able to get his record cleared in his home country. So, yes, truth is he has been arrested, but now there is no police record. So, the question is, do I answer honestly, or since there is no record, is it necessary? I always believe honesty is best but I'm worried that it will go against him in his application. If the record has been cleared is it necessary to list it? Thank you in advance for your answers

    Work and Travel

    Hello. First of all, I'm sorry If I chose the wrong topic for my question. I'm a second years Psychology student from Istanbul, Turkey. This summer I want to go to U.S to work and travel, and do a little research about my department, workshops or any other educational programs that I can join. However I want to do this by my own, without any office to ''help'' me. Everything is clear accept what kind of visa I should apply for. So, I'm basically supposed to be a tourist with working permission. Ergo, I'm confused a little bit about which visa type I might select and apply for. If anyone could answer my question, that would be very helpful, cheers.

    O1 Visa Security Checks

    Hi, i'm in the process of getting my O1 visa as a graphic designer, along with my assistant as an O2, and my petition has been delayed extremely. I'm into 10th month in regular processing. I have inquired USCIS and they said that my case is going through security checks right now, is that a good sign? i'm in India. I was suppose to start my first project this August, so i'm already more than 3 months late. Me and my lawyer are thinking about upgrading to premium processing, cause who knows how long will the petition take to approve in regular processing. Is it the right decision? Does premium processing effect the outcome of the petition in any bad way? And has anyone else experienced this much of a extreme delay? Thanks
