Waiting time to hear back about an interview date?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been through pretty much all the pre-requisite stages (Medical examination, sending in paperwork to request police clearance, sending in my affadavit of support and other paperwork) and have sent in the form requesting an interview to be scheduled.  It said on my letter that it typically takes 2-3 business days in New Zealand to process, but said nothing about how long it should take to receive an actual interview date.  (travel.state.gov says there is virtually no waiting list, reporting 1 business day for Auckland, but also says not to rely on that for K visas)


Any fellow kiwis here that can give a little insight as to how long the wait will be, whether I would get it next week, or a few weeks down the track?  (The lady at the immigration visa department of the consulate office said over the phone that my interview SHOULD be before the end of the month, but I'm taking that with a grain of salt)

There should be a phone number and extension at the top of the letterhead for the US consulate in Auckland.  You will need to be patient though, as they can take a few days to get back to you.  Best method to contact them is via email on Aucklandiv@state.gov

Thanks Sakaki. Can I ask how long it took for them to schedule an interview with you after you submitted the last piece of documentation?  Also what is the phone number listed ( I don't have access to all my printed information at the moment) thanks so much! Cassie
