How is the family?
I’m sure you’ll get them very soon. All good here bro. We are on AP till my medical report and passports are sent to the embassy in early May.
Hello please i would like to know how one can prove at the embassy that they wont be a public charge since the Ghanaian embassy doesn't require an affidavit of support. Thank you
Hello @Boakyewaa. Generally satisfying the basic educational requirement such as a secondary school qualification with required passes that would ordinarily entitle you to admission to a university along with a higher or advanced degree such as a Masters degree or higher OR specific skill sets which have a huge market demand in the USA along with evidence of a host (family member preferable) or a friend willing to accommodate you in the early weeks or months should suffice. A job offer from an American employer would also be great! Hope this helps.
The evidence of
The evidence of a host is what im concerned about. Does the embassy require the host to send certain documents to prove it is really true?
No but you can be sure that they will carry out background checks on the host.
Thank you very much. I get it now
Also, the embassy may not require an affidavit of support but if you can get one it will help.
You don’t necessarily need to have high skills or whatever, you just need to be able to support yourself. If you have a a stable employment record it’s a good sign of work ethic. I’ve met Ghanaians in the US doing all sorts of things that support them without needing any special qualifications - hot dog stand operator, Uber driver (actually have seen a good number of African immigrants doing this), ticket seller at a museum, Verizon store assistant...
Glad you’re ok now.
Any update on this bro? You got the package?
