Packet 4 - What is It?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. Currently in the middle of the second part of our K1 process at the London Embassy. I've been reading through the various posts and timelines trying to get an idea for when he's going to get his interview date from sending off the checklist and such, as he has to book a flight to London for it. Some of the timelines I come across have mention of receiving a "Packet 4," and some make no mention of it at all. Can somebody explain to me what exactly this is, and what is in it? As far as I'm aware, we've only received three packets and no mention has been made of another in the paperwork for Packet 3.

I am also curious as to how long it's taking the London Embassy to select interview dates from the time they receive the completed checklist. We are still holding onto ours as we wait for the police background check to show up from Belfast, but it seems as if the interview will be a month or more from now we may as well send it in. So those of you that have gone through the London Embassy, can you please give me a better guesstimation of when the interview might be?

Thanks in advance! :)

The most critical thing in packet 4 will be notification of the interview date. There's a few other things too, but the interview details are the main thing.

And the medical details!!

London seems to be taking up to 8 weeks to give out an interview date, but there are no guarantees. They might suddenly assign more staff to processing the backlog, but then again they might take longer. Once assigned, it seems that the interview itself is maybe 4 weeks from assignment date.

In your case, it seems like your fiance has to be prepared to fly back to the UK at short notice. The only consequence that I can see from this tactic is that the plane ticket may be expensive.

Best of luck,

Have a look at my timeline I was originally given a date of 22 may then it changed to 10 may. The original date was 12 weeks from the date they received my packet 3. All that was in packet 4 was the interview letter, visa payment slips and instructions on how to find the Embassy.

Good Luck
