My Fiance had his medical on the 14th and everything has been sent in at the end of January. How long did most people wait to hear their interview date? They really like to keep you waiting and I hope that we hear something by Friday.

Did you call DOS yet? They will tell you if London have logged packet3, and if an interview date has been assigned.

Hi Chimneygrl, although you sent them packet 3 a few weeks ago, they will wait for the results of your medical before scheduling an interview. So if your medical was last Mon, the 14th, the embassy would have your results Thurs/Fri. It seems to really vary from case to case how long the wait is going to be. Keep calling DOS like you're doing as someone on here, whose interview is on Fri I believe, didn't receive the interview date letter at all..! Someone else whose interview was last week was only given a weeks notice..! :bonk:

I had my medical on the 18th so am hoping to hear something within the next couple of weeks :unsure:

Good thread! I sent my forms back last Wednesday and they arrived on Thursday. Nothing has been logged yet, but obviously the weekend and Presidents Day on Monday meant that people were not at work. But interesting to know about the fact that they wait to get the medical results before they book the interview.

Me medical is on Monday.

It really is torture!

This is discouraging! I just got word from DOS that our packet 3 was logged today (we had them sign for it, so we know they got it on Tues last week). I knew it would take a while for it to be logged... but I thought once that happened the interview would be set relatively quickly! His medical was on Feb 11th and they received the results on the 16th. I hope it doesn't take too long to have an interview set!

Do the people in the US embassy in London celebrate American holidays? Or just English ones? Like, would they be closed on Pres day even though they are in England?

It is quite discouraging, I know what you mean..! We're a week behind you; they received our packet 3 on Tues and would have received the medical results today...Well we'll just have to wait and see, looking more and more like a middle-April interview...I was hoping to be bouncing out of here by then!

Might have to push back our incredibly tentative wedding date....

Would a K-1 visa interview letter show up in the web fulfillment tool? ( https://usembassy.response-relatis.com/servlet/com.isa.balmoral.admin.process.EmbassyPortalFrameworkServlet )

Or is that just the MRV receipt?
