They really are taking their time mailing my case to the embassy.   Kept looking online to see it change status to "transit" or "ready".  Nope still at NVC.  I even called and they told me "The online status is unreliable.  Your case is currently in line to be mailed to the embassy and you have interview date March 3rd..." ect...   Less than 3 weeks away and it hasn't been put in the mail yet.headbonk.gif   

 

Ya, I think the weather delayed them.  Mine also took about 1.5 - 2 weeks to mail.  They finally sent it off this week.  Hopefully yours will also be sent soon.  

My wife also plans on calling the embassy when the package arrives, to see if she can get an earlier appointment.  Most people have said that only the fiance visa applicants can call and get an earlier appointment, BUT the lady she talked to yesterday said that she could (and she emphasized it was a CR-1).  So I guess we'll just wait and see...

The nvc will not give you such information.. Unfortunately..

And yes once the file gets to the embassy you can get an earlier interview! The thing is the nvc will not send the file only when they schedule an interview..

Well, I Skyped with my wife tonight, and she called the embassy in PI while we were talking.  They confirmed they received our case from NVC, and she asked if we could get an earlier interview.  NVC scheduled our interview for March 10th, but the nice lady on the phone moved us up to February 25th.  We didn't ask if there had been a cancellation or why they moved us up, just happily accepted and here we are.  

 

Dwheels, you can change our interview date on the list I guess.

Hi everyone! This is my first time posting, so my apologies if I should be posting somewhere else. So, we were assigned an interview date in London (March 3) very soon after our case was closed (Feb 10). How great, I thought. But calling the NVC, they are saying that it is taking them weeks just to send out the completed cases. The rep said that if they don't send it out on time, the Embassy will just reschedule. He also said that they would be flexible, like that was supposed to make me feel better. blink.png Has this ever happened to anyone? I guess I'm really just venting because I feel like I have reached my frustration limit at this point.

Thanks dwheels, I really appreciate it. I just get so fed up sometimes with this process- it's reassuring to hear that it will work out regardless. smile.png
