Listen Dantecmu,

First time I applied for a visa (student) I naively went with an expired bank statement. Someone spotted this right there at the embassy grounds, and fellow "applicants" completely wrote me off. Guess what? I still got the visa while most of those guys who did not fancy my chances ended up being denied.

My point is: at times like this, when you've tried your best, let God take control of the rest. The ultimate decision is made by God. Just ask God to take cahrge and to put the right words in you mouth. My prayers are with you.

Thanks man was expecting some positive news at least, but i guess the truth aint that tastefull, would see what i can come up with today but if i dont get it i would have to make do of what i have and pray that a miracle happens. The US embasyy actaully did deny me once in 2004 but that was an F1 visa thats why am so scared of them would definatly keep the house posted POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE. Alternatively since its all about convincin them that its real i could print out the email page an attach to it so they see my uncles email address as well. watcha think bout it.

Scanned documents? You are better off asking your uncle to fax you the original ASAP.

The embassy officials know that even public institutions here in the US send out authentic invitation letters ON OFFICIAL LETTER HEADS. Dont expect them to give you a second look when you show them a photocopy.

If this is the one day you will inconvenience your uncle pls do. Once denied it is extremely difficult to get another visa.

Men ma bro this is quite depressing my appointment date is some few hours from now infact i thought i had everything all covered up and just wanted to know what pples view where on this i cant call off my appointment and i cant cancel this appointment. the scanned copy is signed and dated i dont do fraud especially when biometrics is involved. Although everything boils down to his Grace. The question still remains that has nobody being issued a visitors visa with scanned documents.

Dantecmu, do not present the scanned copies of those documents. Instead, by all means, let your uncle fax them. Trust me on this. Their (embassy officials') general impression is that such "scanned" documents can be easily "created" at home. On the other hand, the fax number on the document would give them greater confidence that the document did in fact originate from overseas. Do let us know how it goes. Goodluck!

For me, nothing wrong with printed out the scanned copy of invitation letter via email prior your visa interivew appointment due, because when someone is not able to send by fax due to difficult dial up the international fax number on the fax machine or internet fax from the USA.

This is my opinion! To be honest with you, I never seen anyone, Nigerian tried using the scanned copy of supporting documents for US visiting visa requirement. That is why I look out here NL posting daily basis.

I also never seen anyone here approved US visiting visa entering to the US successfully.

You are the first person asking this, hoping you will continue post here to let us know if you are succeed approved US visiting visa in order for me to inform my Nigeria friend who is on the same boat as you are.

If US embassy does not recognize the scanned copy of invitation letter, then why don't you print out that scanned copy of invitation letter prior your visa interivew appointment due?

It is not hard to do. US embassy prefers original faxed document of invitation letter or DHL/Fedex delivered invitation letter instead of emailed scanned copy of invitation letter via file attachment directly that is unacceptable.

Good luck!
