Congratulations. Whenever you are ready to travel remember IOM offers very competitive fares to first time immigrants. Ask them and compare with other airlines. If you can pay the $165 dollars to USCIS. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. Been here 5 years. All the best in your preparations.
That fee is no longer $165. It is now $220.
 
Only vaccinations can be done elsewhere. Everything else has to be done at IOM. I did mine in 2013 so costs have changed but plan on 35-40k on medicals and for KNEC maybe a 1000bob. These are very rough estimates but Medicals are the most expensive. If you can do some shots elsewhere it'll save you a few thousand shillings.
What is it that one needs from Knec?I already have My secondary school certificate, enlighten me please

KNEC needs to validate your results. They'll send the verification directly to the embassy. Go to KNEC on Haile Selassie and they'll give you the requirements. You pay to a bank of their choice and they'll send the results. Do it early.

Apologies to hijack this post, but @Gurix could you please shed some light on my situation similar to @Florence Pitts

I randomly checked my visa processing status and this came up.. Will i be called for another interview? I already had my first visa interview in November 2018, and the Embassy needed me to send some additional documents, which i did together with our passports. In the meantime i will wait for probably an email notification...

Hi, I'm a little lost. What category of a Visa are you interviewing for? Is it a DV interview?

yes. DV visa. But, i went for my first interview in November, then i was to send my child's consent, which became a little complicated to get. So i wrote the Embassy explaining my situation, and send them the letter with our passports, so that they can finalize the process.

After sending the documents my status was at administrative processesing then after 2 weeks it changed to ready ready like yours so I could understand then I emailed them because my husband needed his passport back to travel back to the country where he is employed to resign then the next day the status went back to administrative processing again that was on 25 this month on on 26th the status was issued and we picked our package yesterday.
 
I had a question for Guriix though,am trying to pay for the green card for my husband and 1 using my debit card and am being told that my card has been declined yet my bank is telling me that my card is okay and it's the transaction that's being suspected to be fraudulent and they are asking if am sure that's the website I was given by the embassy.Am confused.

I had a question for Guriix though,am trying to pay for the green card for my husband and 1 using my debit card and am being told that my card has been declined yet my bank is telling me that my card is okay and it's the transaction that's being suspected to be fraudulent and they are asking if am sure that's the website I was given by the embassy.Am confused.

FYI If it continues to be a problem, it’s ok to pay when you get to the US. Just don’t wait too long after you arrive as the green card will only be sent if payment is received; they only start the production process when you enter the US though so not paying before you get there won’t delay anything. Congrats on your visas!
