Sydney Consulate: packet 3 documents ready, how long before interview

Hello Aussie friends,

Our I-129F petition just left the NVC on October 21 and is currently en-route to Sydney. Thanks to VJ, we've been able to prepare all of our Packet 3 stuff in advance:

- I mailed the I-134, a copy of the NOA2, and a copy of our original petition to my fiancee in Oz

- My fiance just completed the medical two days ago (before we even had a NVC case #)

- My fiance already has the police check document

- Packet 3 documents are all filled out and ready for mailing

We can basically respond to the Packet 3 on the same day that Sydney sends out the email. So I have a couple of questions around this:

- can we send back part I of DS-230 along with the rest of the documents at the same time? Or does the DS-230 need to be sent prior to everything else?

- how long does it typically take the consulate to schedule the interview after they've received all of the required documents?

We're hoping to get this all done before December since I'm traveling down to Melbourne in mid-November and it would be just fantastic if we could come back to New York together with K-1 in hand.

Yes, you can send all the documents at the same time. They only suggest sending DS-230 first because most other applicants aren't as organized and therefore need time to prepare everything else :)
