London Interview time

15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering what everyones experience of sending the readiness form and the time before they got an interview date?

I just sent pack 3 back and am gathering the information ready to send the readiness form and just wondering if its worth sending the readiness form before I have all the paperwork?

Since someday in the far distant future, my beloved and I might get an interview in London, I'd been looking at what the turn-around times were for the interview dates. I'd be a bit careful. Some people have gotten /really/ short amounts of notice recently out of London, sometimes less than two weeks. You might be better off waiting until you have what you need before sending it off, just incase.

where did you hear this 2 week interview idea from?im pretty much at the point of getting ours booked.....would be good if it was true?

1. Go to the Immigration Timeline link.

2. Click on View K-1 Visas [ Advanced View ]

3. Select country filter: United Kingdom

4. Sort by 'Packet 4 Received'.

Note the difference between that date and interview date.

Also noted comment:

"they didn't give us 1 month notice - they have us 1 week notice for the interview date!"

Do you understand that you're NOT ready to interview until you have your documents in hand? That's why they do that form so people won't be unprepared for the interview or call up trying to reschedule because what they thought was going to arrive in the mail didn't.

It's in London's instructions for K visa applicants.

Step Two

Assemble all of the documents required in support of your application. When you have obtained all of the required documents and are prepared for the visa interview, you are required to complete the Notification of Applicant(s) Readiness, Form 2001 and mail it to the Immigrant Visa Unit together with a covering letter containing your email address, if applicable, date of your wedding and date of the medical examination.

http://london.usembassy.gov/iv_15.html

We used to call it the checklist because you had to tick the items you had gathered on their list. I think the form was called IV-15 and was London's own form they created. It also had a place to fill in intended date of travel, wedding date, and maybe medical.

now im confused about this readiness thing, do i send it as soon as i have everything ready? or do i have to wait to be asked for it? and is there a link to the page to download this form as i couldnt find it?

It can be sent in with the other four forms if you have your interview documents or you can wait and send it later when you have your interview documents in hand.

Instructions and forms are here. READ the whole page, all the links, and look in the right column.
