Hello, I'm new to MVJ--so please bear with me--not even sure if I'm posting this in the right place. I heard that there are all inclusive, affordable lodging run by Cuban ex-patriots in Guyana that are cheaper than the hotels. They provide hotel pick-up and drop off, 3 meals per day, private rooms with private bathrooms, car to exam, interview and translation svcs..... Is this recommended? Does anyone know of such places? I only found one.....on airbnb I believe. They charge $30 per person per night. Also, I'm a US Citizen (my parents are Cuban) who speaks, reads and writes Spanish. I'm a former ESL Teacher with 2 Masters so I'm quite qualified to translate though not legally certified as a translator. I don't want my fiance to go to Guyana alone because he is very naiive and fear for his safety. Can I act as his translator? Does my presence in Guyana bolster our hinder our case? Thank you for your input! Lina

I am also new to the site but I don't think this is where you should post your questions. You should go to the forum. There are those providers in Guyana, others may have the contact if you post to the forum and you fiance may be able to get the information from others in Cuba. You can translate for him at the doctor's office if the translator is not there but the embassy will not allow it. However, by all accounts, the interviewers also speak spanish fluently so there should not be a problem. Good luck.

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
