Good morning everyone!

My fiancee completed the medical exam, which was couriered to the Embassy on 2/2/11.

Today she received a letter from the embassy, stating that the interview is in six days, on 2/16/11 ! !

Is it normal to have such short notice (i.e. for re-arranging work schedules, etc.)

It didn't say anything about re-scheduling if needed, and she is wondering if this is possible, to give a bit more lead time.

Also, I sent her a packet of stuff for her to take to the interview (Affadavit of Support, proof of ongoing relationship, etc.) -- does she really have to have a photocopy of everything she brings to the interview?

Thanks!

Your timeline info is totally screwed up. You have it that you are going for a spousal visa not K1, and your NOA2 date is last June. Fix the info please, if you would like people to give you comprehensive answers to your queries. Correct and up to date info will also help all those coming after you.

Oh man, I am praying for something like this to happen to us...

As for the photocopies, it's my understanding originals of things like birth certificate etc. are required, but having a copy of everything submitted will make any surprise questions or apparent mistakes at the interview part easier to clarify.

Most people find the paperwork is not really looked at very thoroughly, but no one has ever regretted having it with them, if only for the peace of mind.

That's a bit unusual to get such short notice. Re-scheduling is addressed in the right hand column of this embassy webpage http://london.usembassy.gov/immigrant-visas/interview.html

For the interview in LONDON---she does NOT need the original petition, the NOA2, proof of the relationship, photos together, Skypes, emails,etc.

The documents needed are listed ON THIS WEBPAGE

The rule of thumb is: If you want a document returned to you, provide a photocopy. Examples--

Birth certificate-Yes

Police certificate-Yes

Copy of your tax return- Not if you have another copy

Letter from employer- Yes, you can use it again for AOS
