Travel Time After Interview Notification

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I have been using the information from this site for some time but I have never posted. Thank you all for your knowledge and experience... My question: I should be receiving my NOA2 by the end of February. I am very excited!! I want to travel to China to be with my fiancee during her interview for support. Is there enough time to arrange travel from the time my fiancee receives notification of her interview date and time? What are some of your experiences???

Thank you.

Paul

Have you mapped out the timeticks from NOA-2 approval to Interview Day, specifically for GUZ IV ?

If not, please do so, you'll see 2 or more timeticks where things are either lagged or variable.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

What I did is go to Immigration Timeline.

Then to View K1 Visas [ Advanced View ] .

Then I filtered it by China.

Then sorted by Packet 4 Received date. (which should be your interview letter)

Looking at those, it appears to be anywhere from 2-6 weeks between Packet 4 being received, and the actual interview date.

I'm not sure how well that answers your question.

In our experience, due to a mail delay we only had about three weeks from receiving P4 and the actual interview date. This doesn't leave a lot of time. The key I think is to call DOS almost every day after the P3 has been sent back until you have confirmation of interview. This way you will know when the interview is well in advance of the mailing. Good luck! Oh, just wanted to point out that your "filing status" says you are AOS pending...you might want to change that if you care. :thumbs:

This one of the "impossible" questions to answer in my opinion, and might be further complicated if the US Citizen petitioner has to get an entry VISA to go to the country of interview. I have never traveled to China and do not know what the issues with Americans visiting can be, but I have visited places with that type of government system and it could be a challenge on that end. Plus of course you get dinged on not being able to get the best deal on Airfare.
