Frustrated...witing for the interview to be scheduled

Recommended Posts

The saga continues....

I'm getting goose bumps finding out how long ppl wait for the embassy in Dublin to schedule the interview...

They received my Ds 230 part I and notice of readiness May 6th ( i sent it on the 5th, via anpost express post and paid 2€ extra for the signature) They got it and signed it!...I already had my medical done and got the results...all in all I'm ready to go...so is my fiance, who's going to come down here and accompany me to the interview and help me with the whole moving stuff...so we're waiting... I called once they told me that it takes 3 weeks from when they receive packet 3 until the interview ( that was last Tuesday). My fiance called today...they told him that they didn't receive my biographic data and want do anything with my paperwork until they receive it from me. I called them after wards, and I told her that they have received it on the 6th according to anpost...that it was signed for...so she took my name and checked and all she managed to tell me was that they are pretty much booked and the interview wont be until the last 2 weeks of June... We were planning to have the wedding on the 26th of June...

At this point...i don't care if the interview is this week, next week, or in a month... I just want to know ,so my fiance can book a ticket and we can try make some arrangements for the wedding...

Any ideas how to handle that? Any ideas how to get some decent info from ppl at the embassy? I always seem to be put through the same lady..it seems like she's feeding me some out of the blue information and she doesn't bother to check anything... I'm just so antsy and impatient at I want to know already...

My best advise would be to wait to book the tickets until you at least have confirmed interview date (and even then there's always room for error). I know exactly how you feel though, in wanting to book the tickets soon so that you're no longer in limbo. We went through the same thing in March. We ended up booking the flight only 3 days in advanced (once we had finally received the visa from the embassy) and I am glad we waited. Not only did the birth cert problem hold things up but the embassy's own snafu (with forgetting to have us sign one of the forms) did as well. I also know of another Irish member here that had them misspell their name on their visa forcing them to send it back.
