Reschedule the embassy interview, it is possible?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

I schedule a visit to US for 3 months. Since my process end up in CSC, each for what I understand the estimated time between NOA 1 e NOA 2 is around 60 days and not the 200 days that I was expected from TSC, there is a chance that I end up to get my interview schedule for a date that I'm still here (US).

My question is, can I reschedule it? It will delay the process for a long period of time? Can I make the interview in the US (probably not because by then, the embassy in Europe will have all the papers already)?

Thanks in advance.

No you cannot interview in the United States.

You have to interview in a country you legally reside in.

You're not yet approved, when do you go home?

Okay you may have to extend it.

After approval (let's say it comes in July) I believe your medical is walk in or you schedule it yourself.

Usually the embassy's give you 4 months after approval to do the medical and interview.

So if you got approved in July, you'd be cutting it extreamly fine.

But!

I know a lot of embassy's will allow you to extend the approved petition for up to a year.

So you could call yours now before approval and find out if an extension is possible once they have it.

There are no US consulate's within the US to interview at. You do not receive US visas from within the US. Visas to enter the US are received abroad.

You can either drag out the process to have the interview at a later date(I-129F petitions can be extended by the consulate), or you can change your ticket date to return if you get an interview before your trip was supposed to end.

9 FAM 41.81 N6.2 Validity of a K-1 Petition

(CT:VISA-2165; 08-21-2014)

An approved K-1 visa petition is valid for a period of four months from the date of USCIS action and may be revalidated by the consular officer any number of times for additional periods of four months from the date of revalidation, provided the officer concludes that the petitioner and the beneficiary remain legally free to marry and continue to intend to marry each other within 90 days after the beneficiary's admission into the United States. However, the longer the period of time since the filing of the petition, the more the consular officer must be concerned about the intentions of the couple, particularly the intentions of the petitioner in the United States. If the officer is not convinced that the U.S. citizen petitioner continues to intend to marry the beneficiary, including instances where no action has been taken on the application for a year (while refused under INA 221(g)), the petition should be returned to the approving office of USCIS with an explanatory memorandum. (See 9 FAM 41.81 PN5 for revalidation procedure.)

Yes, you can reschedule your interview. Your interview will be in Paris, France and your medical exam will be in Portugal. For your medical exam the Paris Embassy will mail you the contact information to set up an appointment for a date of your choosing.

Things move very fast once you get your NOA2. My fiance and I did the same, he came here with the intentions on visiting for 3 months then returning home. Things moved faster than we had expected. We were happy with our July 9th interview date so rescheduled his return flight to make it to his medical then onto the interview.

I need to change my appointment date. What do I do?

Should you need to change your final visa interview appointment date, please e-mail us at ParisConIV@state.gov or fax 01 43 12 22 29 (from the U.S., dial 011 33 1 43 12 22 29) advising us of the reasons you are unable to attend the scheduled appointment. Upon receipt of your notice, we will respond with a new appointment for the earliest possible date.
