K1: When to schedule medical / interview, Letter of Appointment

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi

I see this message "Please do not schedule an appointment unless you have received your appointment letter from the National Visa Center or, if your application is being processed by the IV Unit, you have been advised that your case file has been received in the Immigrant Visa Unit, London."

(https://uk.usembassy.gov/visas/fiancee-2/medical-examination/)

 

I have received packet 3 and my case shows as ready on the ceac tracker as on 9/20.

 

The "appointment letter" part is confusing to me.  It seems from my research that this letter doesn't exist anymore?  Is that accurate?  Do I need a letter before scheduling my medical?

Am I good to go ahead and schedule the interview once I get my medical lined up and fill out the readiness to interview form?

 

Thanks

We got a letter.  Via email.  Do you have a scheduled appointment?  My husband's doctor asked for the interview date to schedule the appointment.  I think he took the letter but you would need a scheduled appointment date to give.

That right there means you are ready to call for a medical appointment. But you need to take your police certificate and shot record so make sure you have those taken care of first. 

 

Spouse visa applicants are assigned an interview by NVC. They are covering two different processes in one sentence. 

 

This part is about K1s-- or, if your application is being processed by the IV Unit, you have been advised that your case file has been received in the Immigrant Visa Unit, London.

You got a letter of instruction (formerly called packet 3)from London saying they have received your file and to follow their instructions on the website.

Wish I had read this earlier! I was under the impression, I could book the medical as soon as I had my case number which is what I did last week.

 

Our  medicals aren't until next Wednesday so hopefully our case will be at the embassy by then! I would reschedule but I've already paid for non-refundable travel and booked the time off work!
