Calling the Embassy

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone,

Anyone that is familiar with calling the flippin Embassy especially the most recent folk.

Did the phone just ring and ring and ring and ring? If so, did anyone ever answer and if you waited, how long di you wait ?

Did you find a particular day (or time) of the week better to get through than another? I've been trying since 1:30pm (their time) and I've had no problems getting through to that final 1 through 3, but it just keeps ringin and ringin.

After the DS230 was dropped off, how long should I expect (yeah, expect....) anyway, when do you think they'll "know" when my date is actually scheduled for? Right away? wait a couple of days? a week?

Please provide me with some insight, of course that will help other "newbies".

Kelly - There were many times when I was calling and it just rang and rang and rang. I think I once let it ring for 6 minutes before I hung up. Once I called, someone picked up and I think they put the phone in a drawer and shut it. They never said anything, I heard nothing and they never hung up. I sat there for a few minutes and gave up.

I don't think what you are experiencing is new. You just have to keep trying....

Not that it matters....but Roy dropped off his DS230 the middle of September.....we didn't get our interview date until 11/2 (interview was scheduled for 12/3). At the time, they were gathering the petitions and only giving out the interview dates at the beginning of the month. It seemed like there was some imaginary "cut-off" date that only they knew about.

The "most recent" person who could help you would be Joanna -- she is still in Jamaica.
