Re: Who to complain to about rude immigration officers at Chicago O'Hare??

Thanks for the confirmation and the tip on assertiveness. I did read the wiki earlier in the week - very informative! The only thing is that the links for the USCIS site weren't working. Actually, I...

Re: Who to complain to about rude immigration officers at Chicago O'Hare??

Sheesh indeed - they shouldn't have told me that they had actioned the change when they didn't have the authorisation to do so. Or did they? I mistyped - I spoke with the NVC about the change (not...

Re: Who to complain to about rude immigration officers at Chicago O'Hare??

Congrats on the entry - glad to hear it went well. I'm entering on an IR1 next week and I hope it goes as straightforwardly and as quickly, particularly as I'm getting at 9pm - so forum talk of...

Re: I94 and travelling with a green card

As the others say, you don't need to do anything - mine wasn't taken out of my passport last year and I was worried it might affect my IV application. It was simply taken out next time I went through...

Re: Who to complain to about rude immigration officers at Chicago O'Hare??

I don't mind the stone face at all or, lack of warmth - it's more when they harangue you for, for example, asking relatively untaxing and simple-to-answer questions. I don't see how it makes policing...

Re: Denied entry to the USA - why??

Canada crossed my mind but it's coming up to winter and the snow could be a negative. I did also wonder about swimming to the East coast but I didn't know if he owned a wet suit.

Re: Denied entry to the USA - why??

I second this - it sounds like an unpleasant and traumatising experience. I'm guessing that you feel unfairly treated, given that your intention was to legitimately visit the US and not to immigrate....

Re: Who to complain to about rude immigration officers at Chicago O'Hare??

This was the same with the initial comment that raised the issue of racism. The comment - "BTW, racial insults are considered bad form in the US" - appeared to make the assumption that the OP was...

Re: Travel to/from USA-UK

On the rudeness front, this article (http://www.ft.com/cms/s/2/cda25e6c-c1ea-11df-9d90-00144feab49a.html) in the FT brought it up recently - at least, my experiences meant that I got the answer...

Re: Did anyone do any part of the process through US Embassy in Belfast?

Echoing the other comments, you have to go through London - that's where the embassy for the whole of the UK is located. Belfast only has a consulate - it, therefore, only processes...

Re: Travel to/from USA-UK

On entering the UK, you and your husband can join either queue i.e the EU or non-EU lines. Or at least you can at Heathrow - there is a sign at the beginning of the line stating this (but if, in...

Re: Visa Interview Prep

Well, thanks for the reassurance - I'll bring along the 'just in case' pack - and sorry to hear that the K1 requires much more documentation. In my ignorance, I would have thought there wouldn't too...

Re: Visa Interview Prep

Yeah, apologies for the lack of clarity - it's an IR1. In terms of what I've received - the letter confirming my visa interview appointment went through all the documents needed and stated that they...

Visa Interview Prep

I filed all my documents through the NVC and have been given an interview at the embassy in London. Haved looked over the Embassy website and checked my interview letter, I wanted to...

Re: Police Certificates Queries

Thanks for the replies and apologies for posting in the wrong forum (I didn't think it was specifically a marriage-based visa query but that is what I am applying for, so...).

In terms of the UK...

Re: Police Certificates (Northern Ireland people)

Apologies, because this is slightly off-topic but seeing the reference to Northern Ireland, I was wondering about the photos needed for the visa. Were ones from a photo booth okay or is it better to...

Police Certificates Queries

A couple of queries concerning Police certificates.

1) When obtaining an ACRO certificate for the time I've spent living in the UK since the age of 16, will 1 application and certificate suffice...

Re: I-130 Approved; Still travel to US?

Well, I happily stand corrected. I'm glad that I (inadvertently) raised this point (even though it shows up my own stupidity/ignorance!) because I've been living under a misapprehension - US...

Re: I-130 Approved; Still travel to US?

Er, can't say precisely - a cumulation of various sources - but I am under the impression that a person must remain outside the US while their application for an immigrant visa is being processed. Is...

Re: I-130 Approved; Still travel to US?

Many thanks for the as always helpful replies. The I-130 did come back quite quickly - in less than 3 months and that's including the Christmas and New Year period too! So, basically, I can still...

Re: I-130 + K-3 visa?

I like humour as much as the next person but, for it to be enjoyable, it should generally be funny ;)

Re: I-130 + K-3 visa?

As you can see if you read my comment in its entirety, JEff, it was not substantively concerned with the differences between various immigration systems. Rather, it was about the I-130 and the K-3 -...
