Packet 3 Never Received - What next?

I called the Dept of State and they said that the consulate sent out packet 3 on July 2nd. He hasn't received the packet and they advised me to call the consulate.

Is there something else we should do? Does anyone have a link to Montreal's Packet 3? Is there a way to move forward without actually receiving the packet?

Montreal is slow, it's possible they haven't sent it to you yet and lord knows how long they take to log it into their system for DOS to see. I just got mine yesterday. Technically, there are no official papers in it but you need your MTL case number and if you send the info without them knowing it may cause some chaos. I mean, if they have troubles sending out mail, what on earth will they do when things go backwards!

It sucks, I know but just keep calling DOS about packet 3... it should come any day now.

OOPS! You said Montreal DID send it out... well I have read in the Canadian forum that several times Montreal says they mail it out but it didn't go out yet... mine was mailed from Montreal on July 22 and I received it on the 27. If you have your case number try emailing Montreal... will take a few weeks for a response if any. Otherwise call DOS daily. Sorry :(

UGH . . . I just emailed them but several weeks for a response will kill me.

We've already been building our paperwork for packet 3. I think the only thing we're waiting for is the police certificate. Is it possible to just go ahead without packet 3? I know I've seen Montreal's packet 3 somewhere on the site but have to find it again. Is there something in there that he'll have to show someone?

All the 'paperwork' everyone mentions is really for packet four. Packet 3 involves little paper. All you need to fill out is two separate forms and a checklist that they provide. The checklist has your name, DOB and case #... it may just be a print out but that's really what you're waiting for. Apparently the forms are changing because what I was asked for is different than all the other members. Most have been asked to fill out the DS-230 and DS-156; 156K, however I was asked to fill out the DS-230 and DS-160. All your packet 3 really is those forms filled out. To do the DS-160 you need to upload your own Visa pic because the form is filled out online. You can fill out DS-230 now and just hold onto it. You only need to fill out part 1. That way when you have it your forms will be filled out and it's just a matter sending it back the same day. Show them how easy it is to send mail :P
