Interview in London--finally!

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello VJers,

Thanks in advance for any advice you may have. Well...after having our intial interview CANCELLED in Dublin, we finally got an interview date set in London for this Tuesday, February 22nd. Luckily (after NVC's giant screw-up) the kind people at the London embassy got us in quickly!

Here's what I'm worried about: the beneficiary (my husband) will be flying from Northern Ireland to London to attend the interview AND the medical in the same day (ah!). I'm terrified that we'll forget some silly piece of paperwork and this process will drag on...

He's taking the following:

1. Passport and photos

2. A copy of the I-130 packet

3. A copy of the the Affidavit of Support packet

4. Certified copies of the marriage cert and his birth certificate (these are extra copies--the embassy should have the originals)

5. The medical exam results from Dublin (sealed in an envelope...just in case they'll accept it at London)

6. A copy of the email from the London embassy stating his interview date/time

He has no interview appointment letter because the embassy just set his interview date/time THIS MORNING! I hope they aren't real sticklers about this.

For those of you in the U.K...did you need any other paperwork at the interview?? Am I forgetting anything?

Thanks so much,

-Fitzy

AmyKathleen--Thanks for the reply. Hmm...he has copies of the police checks, yes, but the originals were sent to NVC (then to the Dub embassy, then onto London...I hope).

Glad to see that you were able to get a quick interview. Too bad they would not take his Irish physical. Good luck.


May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!

Thanks so much, Wayne and Claudia! The funny thing about the medical is...the doctor in Dublin advised my husband NOT to undergo another medical in London (at least the X-ray part) because it would expose him to unnecessary radiation!! I hadn't even thought of that. He's taking his Dub medical to the interview, so hopefully they'll accept the X-ray (at the least).

Thanks for the well-wishes. :)

Congratulations on the rescheduled date and good luck!

OBX--thanks so much! :)
