Has anyone here gone thru the Sydney Embassey for a K1...If so how long on average does it take for them to send out the package? Our application has just been sent to the Department of State for processing, so I'm unsure of the timeline now until they send out the package in Australia.

The appointment wait time is 13 days, but I'm wondering how long it takes them to send out the package and then once they have it back schedule the interview.

Thanks!

Generally those that will be applying for K visas are only at NVC for a short pitstop. You can call the automated number (603)334-0700 and then press 5 to speak to an operator to find out anything regarding your petition. You can go to www.dhl.com to try and track your petition once it leaves NVC. There is not a whole lot that come to Sydney so you should have a fair idea on yours even though you wont know for certain.

click on track... it will turn into a dropdown box and you click track by reference

In the reference box you want to type EXPEDITE NIV SECTION

Choose your date range then click go.

Sydney is usually pretty fast in sending out packages once they have received your petition. Do a search on those in Sydney in the immigration timelines tab at the top of the page.

Also come and join us in the 'Land Downunder' thread in the Regional Forums' You will find it under Asia.

You will do just fine :) Sydney is pretty easy peasy :yes: Just have everything in the right order for interview as per the instructions they will send you and a copy of the entire petition package plus originals of anything submitted as photocopies, as well as further evidence of your relationship. Have you gotten your police certificate yet?
