  2. Talking about masks the latest is one mask is not enough, The advice now is to to wear at least two masks if you don't have the N95 Mask, and to be even more ridiculous is to wear three masks if you want 90% protection. Mask wearing in the winter months is bearable, but in the summer months with the humidity its quite stifling. And to think during the first few months of Covid they said it was not necessary to wear a mask.
  3. Actually on this - it occurs to me that there may well be others in various places, but SA is one of the developing countries with a strong medical and scientific community that can actually identify and work on this stuff. I’ve been pretty impressed by what they’ve done/researched with such limited resources compared to places like the US.
  4. I’m still waiting for mine but my medical friends and elderly relatives have had theirs. Not sure if you guys have noticed, but I’ve started seeing ads on my social media from CDC and Dept of HHS about how to prevent the spread, keep careful, get vaccinated etc. Such a relief to have an administration that believes in science and is serious about getting this under control.
  5. Last week
  6. Was just saying to my wife this weekend while in line for our first Moderna shot, “Of course there’s a crazy South African variant. Did we expect anything else?”
  7. Well - this is effectively just SA being added to the list, all the others are already banned (even if Trump’s antics on leaving means Biden has to reinstate it) This new Covid strain in SA is pretty scary sounding to be honest. Hope it gets under control. Far too many people I know in SA are saying both they now all know people with it, and that people are not really social distancing etc much. And it’s going to be a good while before they can reach herd immunity vaccine wise there. We have had immediate family members there catch it too.
  8. The US will apply a travel ban on all Non US citizens from South Africa due to Covid -19 effective next Saturday January 30, 2021. Biden to introduce travel bans on South Africa, UK, and others: Report (washingtonexaminer.com)

  10. There is a change to the Green Card renewal process as from 1/12/2021. Looks like they are not replacing the original green card but just issuing a sticker - Form I-797 The Extension will be valid for a year. Here is the link: USCIS to Replace Sticker That Extends Validity of Green Cards | USCIS Starting in January, we will replace the sticker that is currently issued to lawful permanent residents (LPRs) to extend the validity of their Form I-551, Permanent Resident Card (PRC or “Green Card”), with a revised Form I-797, Notice of Action. LPRs file Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card, when their Green Cards expire or are about to expire. The revised Form I-797 notice will serve as a receipt notice for the Form I-90. When presented together with the Green Card, the revised Form I-797 notice will extend the Green Card’s validity for 12 months from the date on the front of the Green Card and will serve as temporary proof of the LPR’s status. This change ensures that LPRs with a recently expired Green Card will have documentation of identity, employment authorization, and authorization to return to the United States following temporary foreign travel. Form I-90 applicants who have not been issued a notice for a biometrics appointment and are in possession of their Green Card, will no longer have to visit an application support center to obtain temporary evidence of LPR status. Applicants who have already been scheduled for a biometrics appointment will not receive a revised notice and will be issued an extension sticker at their biometrics appointment. Starting in January, applicants who file Form I-90 to replace an expiring Green Card will receive the revised receipt notice in the mail approximately 7-10 days after USCIS accepts their application. This notice will be printed on secure paper and will serve as evidence of identity and employment authorization when presented with an expired Green Card.
  11. New guidelines on keeping Covid-19 in check will be implemented soon as the amount of cases exceed 1 million. South Africa on verge of new virus rules as it hits 1M cases (sfgate.com)

    Christmas 2020!

    Happy Christmas to all. Stay safe and hopefully all will work out. In the words from The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - "It will be alight in the end and, if it's not alright, then it is not the end".

    Christmas 2020!

    Happy holidays oscar and everyone! Ah, saw the Parlotones live a couple of times back in the day. Once they were supporting a big international rock band but unfortunately I don’t remember which concert that was. My first responder and doctor friends have received the vaccination already - my dad should be in next group because of age and other conditions. Seems husband and I are way down the line - not sure what group specifically we are in but when we used that NYT tool from a week or two back we were equivalent of #88 of 100 people in line... Anyway.. here’s wishing everyone a really good 2021... I think it is going to be better than this year in just about every way!

    Car Break in

    Someone broke into my car last night. No Damage to my car, I found my drivers door slightly open and the thief went through center console and glove compartment throwing everything out onto the front seats, Probably looking for the remote to open the undergrounds parking doors or any spare car or apartment keys. Luckily there was nothing there for them. So I called NYPD non emergency line: They just took down the details and gave me a case number. They will not come out to check for fingerprints due to Covid-19. I got gloves and Clorox wipes and disinfectant spray, to clean up, and threw away some of the loos stuff. Its interesting that the cops will not come out.
  17. Just a update on my check to the IRS, Well it finally cleared it took, two and a half months to be deposited.

  19. Thanks Bushbaby PTA- We are riding with Biden on this one! I received some additional information from United States Department of State DOS Visa (NVC) Its a notice of visa case creation with NVC Case numbers for each application. They sent the correspondence, to an address I gave when I Applied over seven years ago. I have since changed my address twice, since then and even informed UCIS a few years ago of my new address. They appear to have ignored my address change and just mailed it to the original address. The new occupant at my old address had not received, any of my old mail going to the old address except for these two envelopes which looked rather official. They had the curtesy to take pictures of of the envelopes on their cell phone and mail the envelopes to me. This appears to be a recurrent problem with NVC as twice of the past 15 years people who had moved out of addresses where we have stayed, have come back to ask us if we have received any mail from NVC where in one instance it had. So for anyone changing address even if you have done the address change the official way and received official notification of the new address, there is something in their process that does not correct and up date the file. It may be a good idea if yo can to maintain some sort of contact with the people at your old address for instances like this.
  20. From what I understand the VERY long wait might be over if Biden wins. Rejects the false choice between employment-based and family-based immigration. Each day, in every state in the country, millions of immigrants granted a visa based on family ties make valuable contributions to our country and economy. Keeping families together and allowing eligible immigrants to join their American relatives on U.S. soil is critically important, but the current system is poorly designed with per-country caps that prevent applications from being approved in a timely fashion. That means approved applicants may wait decades to be reunited with their families. As president, Biden will support family-based immigration by preserving family unification as a foundation of our immigration system; by allowing any approved applicant to receive a temporary non-immigrant visa until the permanent visa is processed; and by supporting legislation that treats the spouse and children of green card holders as the immediate relatives they are, exempting them from caps, and allowing parents to bring their minor children with them at the time they immigrate. https://joebiden.com/immigration/#
  21. Great ! thank you for this explanation! Sorry, I did not stipulate the intention to move to the US yes, this is the deal and I appreciate your insight on this ... My one child is in a home-tutoring environment and my second is still in normal government school ... You have addressed my questions perfectly ! thank you !
  22. Are you looking to emigrate to the US, or just to emigrate in general? The statement that the GED is no longer accepted is not exactly true - it’s very widely accepted including by the Ivy League, though normally the people using them have not had a traditional education path, and the high school requirements for top colleges generally go well beyond the minimum required to complete high school which is usually what a GED is (the system is very different to SA... if you need a quick explainer, from someone whose kid did primary in SA and high school and now college in the US, let me know...) If you are still based in SA my first recommendation, if it is affordable, would be to send the children to a bricks and mortar international school there, whether American, British or IB, rather than online schools which vary widely both in quality and focus. If you do go online though, then the British curriculum is a good idea, as it is obviously understood in the UK but also well regarded in the US (as is IB), and in fact many colleges will give students college credit or higher subject placement for good performance in some A level subjects.
  23. Hi there - new to the club.. in the preliminary stages of emigrating still but wanted to know if anyone could advise which curriculum would be best as an "online learning solution" for my two ( Grade 6 and Grade 9) - I believe the GED is no longer accepted. Would the British / Cambridge curriculum be a better option ?
