That would probably work better for you. Does your fiance has significant ties to his community? Own land/house, long term job, kids? All of these things will help him to get the visa however it is also a luck of the draw :(

no the only thing he has is a letter of employment stating he has been there 3 years and has been granted leave for those months.  What if he bought the plane ticket beforehand and showed them that?  It would have a date of return showing he is planning on going back.  We were waiting to see if they approved him first but I was just wondering if it would prove he was planning on returning.

Or what if I wrote the invitation letter stating he was visiting family and friends, his family doesn't have enough room for him so he would be staying at my residence.

It's frustrating that we can travel anywhere but they can't and have to go through such a rigorous process and may not even be approved.  He is definitely going back, we plan to marry at the end of October on the beach.  Then we would be applying for permanent residency....a whole other can of worms lol

He needs to show more ties. They look for assets like land, vehicle etc. I know someone who had the same job with the govt for 10+ years and because he could not show enough $$$ on a bank statement, they kept turning him down for a visitor's visa. He got approved last year when he was able to show 'enough' money in the bank. He also used his car title.

I'm not sure how much you need to show but they count assets too. So the previous poster's mother-in-law had a business so that is considered a big asset and the $120k was enough. The person I know just got an insurance settlement and showed $400k. His car was the asset he showed.

greetings all...
 
first time posting, so quick overview/introduction before i ask my question...
 
married my husband in may of 09, i was 5 months pregnant at the time... We submitted our paperwork on Sept 30, the day before our son was born... I was approved for sponsor October 22, processing began on Nov 11.... we got a letter Feb 8 saying we need to bring in proof of our son's birth certificate.. I took my maternity leave here (in jamaica) so had the b/c with us... we submitted that feb 9...
 
today (feb 22) we got a phone call saying we must bring in the birth certificate again since they have misplaced the copy, along with my husband's passport so they can finalize the immigration process...
 
first, am i correct in assuming that this is it, we're done?
 
and secondly, how long does it take for us to get his passport back?....
 
i've been enjoying living in jamaica and plan on being here a couple more months at least (not looking forward to going back to winter, we'll wait it out :) ), but it'll be nice to know we're READY!!!
 
thanks for the help and best of luck to you all!!!
