Customer Question
I talk to a guy...
I talk to a guy he's from Nigeria but lives and works as a chef in Dubai for the past 3-4 years. I do know that is true because we have skyped while he has been at work in his work uniform and also around some of the other employees I have talked with. He also rents an apartment there. I am an american citizen born and raised here. We have been talking a while now and we want to get married. He wanted me to come there to live but I am in an accredited registered nursing program. I do not want to move out of the United States until I have my nursing degree. I feel it would be better for him to come here and for us to get married and we can leave the United States when I am finished with my degree. We have never met in person yet. So, im guessing a fiance visa is out of the question. Based on info I have given u, do we have a chance of him obtainig a visitors visa? Me going to Dubai and visit is a last resort. Please give me your feed back.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
