Hello

Finally, today my wife (US citizen) got the automated message saying that 'Your case was closed on 6th August 2010. Kindly wait for 8 weeks for further instructions'. At this point, the NVC sends some sort of notice to the Chennai Consulate - who will then send me an appointment letter for the interview.

Question: How long will it take for me to receive the interview letter ? Will it actually take 8 weeks ? Anyone who has recently gone through the process at the Chennai consulate would have the best answer for this.

Thanks a lot in advance

Regards

You, the petitioner will get the beneficiary's appointment letter copy from NVC. You can mail it to the beneficiary, with full set copy of I-130, IV and AOS, any other your original documents (such as your birth certificate, divorce decree if any, original bonafide affidavits if you had submitted the copies earlier to prove the relationship etc) that you think would be helpful in the interview.

Also, Consulate will mail a letter to the beneficary at the address mentioned in DS-230. It will take long time to get it. I think in our prior case, this one reached very close to the interview date. I have heard some people has not even received the consulate appointment letter in the past, may be delay or missing in the mail etc.

Loto
