OCI match up process

Oct 6th 2015
Hello, I had applied for an OCI for my daughter. I happened to check the status yesterday and it shows that the OCI is now received and that we need to send the US passport for the match up process.
I never received the OCI card email or any details on the match up process.
Should I just send her passport along with the application number?
If anyone has the email from CKGS about the match up process, can you please copy/paste the message here?

Oct 6th 2015
Hi everyone,

I am from Australia and currently going through the process of applying for jobs in the USA to then apply for a J1 trainee visa through CIEE/Student Placement Aus NZ.

I haven't been able to find any similar stories and was curious if anyone is going through or has been through the same process and how they found it?

I am really struggling with securing employment and not receiving many responses at all to my applications (which is close to 100 now). I think the fact i'm from...

H1 extension and passport expiry - clashing dates

Oct 6th 2015
My visa is ending on Sept 2016 and so is my passport, I have stayed in the US on this visa for appx. 1.5 years so that leaves another 4.5 years (considering the 6 years limit, my visa was stamped 6 years back though) -

Q1 - Is the above understanding correct?

Q2 - Not sure when is the right time to get the visa and passport extended and how.

Q3 - Will changing jobs before September 2016 add to the complications?

Thanks for the advice!

Cogniflex Taking your dog out for a walk can help alleviate depression. In fact, it is scientifically proven. Many clinical studies illustrate that pet owners are generally less depressed than those who don't have pets. Walking your pet will also allow you to get some fresh air, which will instantly life your mood. Enjoy spending time with your pet, and soon those problems of yours might disappear.

Picture older than 6 months - disqualified?

Oct 4th 2015
I did the most stupid mistake ever - I used a photo that is more than 6 months old in my DV application. I still look the same (the pic is about 2 years old), but you can see that it's older than 6 months if you check the details/information of the file. Now, my questions are:

- Has anyone ever won with a older photo?
- Is there even a chance for me to get accepted in May, or will I be disqualified immidietly without any chances of being accepted? (It would almost be better to be...

Which airport has nice officers?

Oct 4th 2015
Being out of country for couple of months I am now planning on buying a plane ticket back to States.

My home is close to Los Angeles, so it makes sense to fly straight there. But I have heard that LAX has the worst immigration officers and myself I had a great experience with officers at JFK.

Just for that reason I am deliberating flying first to JFK and then to LAX from there.

Do you feel that some of the airports are nicer to LPRs and some less?

Change of Job : Parent's Green Card (Interview is getting closer)

Oct 4th 2015
Hi, I'm sponsoring my mother and in few weeks we have the interview at Consulate. Recently, I lost my job and got a new one. The financial documentation with UCSIS has information only about my previous job. How should I proceed?

My options are,
1. Inform/send documents to UCSIS? Take documents to Interview.
2. Without informing UCSIS, taking documentation to Interview.
3. Do nothing.
4. Something else?

Appreciate any help!
