Interviews at Tokyo Embassy???

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Has anyone recently received an interview at the Tokyo Embassy?

If so, please share when your case was completed, when you received the interview date, and when the interview is.

I'm curious because I looked at the online appointment system (for DCF) and between Tokyo and Naha, the only open date was Oct. 2nd in Naha.

Nothing for Sept, Oct, Nov, or Dec.

Just trying to get an idea of how scheduling is going.

Thanks

I believe you checked the calender for I-130 petition.

Once NVC processing is done, they will inform your fiancee an interview date.

If the date is inconvenient for her, she can request an alternative date from the bottom of this page

http://tokyo.usembassy.gov/e/visa/tvisa-iv...viewcheck2.html

Interviews are conducted only on Monday mornings. If Monday is a holiday, interviews for the week will be on Tuesday morning.
