... do you seriously have to pay $16.00 to call the embassy?

From the website:

Operator Assisted Visa Information

The service is available Monday through Friday, between 8.00 am and 9.00 pm, and Saturday, between 09.00 am and 5.00 pm, GMT (Monday through Friday, between 3.00 am and 3.00 pm, and Saturday, between 4.00 am and 11.00 am EST). The service is not available on British public holidays. The service will not be available December 23 and 30.

Callers from within the United Kingdom should dial 09042-450100. Calls to this line are charged at £1.20/min from BT landlines; some mobile and network providers may charge more. In addition, callers from outside the U.K. and some mobile and network providers cannot access this number.

Callers from within the United States who wish to obtain information on, or schedule an appointment for a nonimmigrant visa interview, should dial 1-866-382-3589. Callers are charged a fixed rate of $16:00 for up to 7 minutes which is payable by credit card - Visa, MasterCard, American Express only. Please ensure that you have your credit card details available when making the call.


Seriously, or am I looking in the wrong place. We've been waiting weeks and weeks to hear about an interview. Maybe I'm being too impatient(tell me if that's so!) ... but I wanted to just make sure they even got the paperwork.

Tips? Hints?

Thanks guys!

nope, you are in the wrong place alright. Do a google search on this site for the DOS phone number. They will be able to tell you if your interview is scheduled. :thumbs:
