DS160 & Medical Q's

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Just looking for some simple help. I've read a few posts on here and some people say one thing, and some say another.

I spoke to NVC two days ago and they gave me the case number, and said that they will forward our application to the London Embassy next week (super!). They also told me to not book my medical until the embassy had contacted me, would booking my medical in 2/3 weeks time be okay? Has anyone here done this?

Also,finally, I have got my case number from the NVC, do I need to do the DS160 form? I've read some people said not to, some said you have to. If I have to, can I do it now, or do I wait until the embassy have recieved my forms from NVC?

Thanks for any help here, guys!

Hi Guys,

Just looking for some simple help. I've read a few posts on here and some people say one thing, and some say another.

That's because at the embassy stage, it is different in each country. Do your reading in this UK forum now.

I spoke to NVC two days ago and they gave me the case number, and said that they will forward our application to the London Embassy next week (super!). They also told me to not book my medical until the embassy had contacted me, would booking my medical in 2/3 weeks time be okay? Has anyone here done this?

Some people do that.

Also,finally, I have got my case number from the NVC, do I need to do the DS160 form? I've read some people said not to, some said you have to. If I have to, can I do it now, or do I wait until the embassy have recieved my forms from NVC?

Thanks for any help here, guys!

DS-160 is the way you apply for a visa. Without that, you aren't going anywhere. As far as waiting for contact from the embassy, the following info from the pinned thread--K1 London guide, might be helpful:

Shortcut for those who cant wait for their letter: If you have obtained your LND number, you can enter it in the CEAC Visa Status Check site[/size],. Choose immigrant in the drop down. Include the letters LND with your number. The important thing here is to forget the text at the bottom about scheduling interviews or anything like that the Embassy does that for you once you've sent everything in. There are two main statuses at this point:

In Transit This one means your case is on its way from the NVC to London.

Ready This one means London has your casefile and is waiting to receive something needed to progress your case. You may begin submitting forms and booking the medical.
