The date on the website is usually for those individuals getting visas from the Non-Immigrant Visa Unit. You are getting your visa from the Immigrant Visa Unit.

Different units, different timelines, different procedures...

7-2-07 Green card received

A great marriage is not when the "perfect couple" comes together.

It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.

Every country/consulate operates a little differently. Some very quickly, some very slowly. Some let you set your interview date, some set it for you. Some set a specific interview time, and some tell everyone to arrive at the same time. Some interview only the beneficiary, and some interview both the beneficiary and the petitioner.

As well, the governement doesn't always follow their own timelines.

So, if your "packet" - "interview date" timeline is two weeks longer than anticipated I wouldn't worry too much.

My husband is from Morocco also. His interview date was originally set for the beginning of Feb 2005 and we asked for more time [until the end of Feb 2005] just so we had enough time to get all of the information to him--it took 3 weeks at that time for any mail to get to him from North Carolina. Make sure you have all of the information needed for your interview, and especially the evidence of support for the I-134. Sometimes the interviewing officer looks at it and sometimes they don't...you never know. In Atif's case the CO looked at it and then gave it back to him...we have all of it here now. There is an entry that I will try to find for you--it's another person's interview experience for the AMerican Consulate in Casa.

OH! Almost forgot to say....do NOT be surprised when you get a paper with 221g after your interview is over. Be VERY SURE of the wording of this paper when you get it......It could be for Administrative Review [fingerprint and name check with FBI--or it could be a denial....you have to read it carefully and let your fiancee know as soon as possible.

Good Luck and I wish you a successful experience.

Mary K.

EDITED TO SAY: You may want to pose this question in the Middle East/North Africa Forum..... Lots of us from Morocco there and many to let you know about their experiences with the Consulate in Casa.
