You have just asked the million dollar question of the day. Based on the experiences of others on vj it is taking 6 months or longer to be notified that you have an interview date and the date of the interview is more than likely 6 months after you have been notified. I will let someone else speak to the method of notification since I am not there yet. Good luck.

Ghana is severely backlogged so it'll be awhile, unfortunately.

Accra consulate is out of control. My case was completed in December 2, 2009 and I've not receive anything from them. The timeline is empty for immigrant petition. I believe is taking over a year after the case is completed.

This is just ridiculous and so unfair. I'm sure you have written to everybody you could possibly think of. I wish I could help in the writing campaign but I haven't even received my NOA2 - so I don't think I have a voice to be heard yet. But, it is getting on my nerves because I feel there is something I must do - we must do to raise this issue. The problem is that we can't find enough of us to band together to be impactful. Also, I know people are concerned about jeopardizing their situation. There has to be a way to raise this issue so that it will be addressed. Maybe there is need for more employees at the embassy in Accra. Maybe they would appreciate a campaign that might result in getting some support that is needed at the embassy.

I have reviewed your time-line and I am feeling very bad for you and everyone else who is trying to remain strong through this process with the embassy in Ghana. So much money being spent, so many tears being shed. Americans are people of action - we make things happen! There must be an answer.

There is a letter circulating that you can cut & paste to express your irritation at the situation, by hitting Portals for Ghana and read back a week or so, there is a letter that one of us drafted and you can send it off. From what I understand from my inquiries last week with NVC & US Embassy at Accra, is that we are looking at a year or more from the NVC Complete date. Yes, Accra is "extremely backlogged" (per NVC operator) and we need to be prepared for a "long wait". There is nothing more to do...

I am going at the end of June and my husband wants us to go to the Embassy to inquire of the backlog, but I am not wanting to waste any of my precious time while there to fight something that is unwilling to budge. The congressman's office had advised me to just keep going back to visit while we are waiting. "There is noone you can write to or push that can make it go any faster." This is all through the DOS.

So yes, while we are all in the same boat & growing weary from the waiting, at least we have each other & we are able to communicate with our spouses. I do suggest keepiung our congress and DOS informed of our irritation that the wait is excessive, but at lest, pray to God, they still have Visa's to provide Ghana with. They can't deny us forever.....

Yeah I would not recommend going...if Ghana is like all of the US embassies I have been to you would have a difficult time even getting in the building even with an appointment, and you would be unlikely to actually get much help. Have you tried emailing the consulate? The consulates that I have dealt with are pretty good about responding to email (within two days usually) and you might get some estimate on how much longer it is going to be.
