Hi Guys,

I just wanted to know roughly when I should book my medical for London. Is there a long wait time to get an appointment from what you guys know?

Also how long do they last, whats the expiry, 6 months?

Just to get an idea.

thanks

Hi

In essence you can not book your medical until you have approval at USCIS and your LND number

You are a couple of months min from NOA-2 once your wife gets this notification, you will also get an email or will know by the status on USICS site...After around 9 to 15 days, your wife can start to call nvc number and check with auto voice responder AVR to see if your file has been put on the nvc computer, if it has she will be able to get your case number which will be different from the number on the NOA-2 it will start LND short for London where your file will go once complete.

By having your LND number you can call knightbridge to arrange that appointment and its one less step for you in the UK to do later on, but heres a link that will show you short cuts and steps through the NVC process, worth reading to understand what will happen next NVC Shortcut

Our USCIS journey took 4 months and 6 days, but not all may go that fast and we are now into our 5th day after NOA-2

It's true what Rushton50 said unfortunately but read this link I found on london.usembassy.gov/ that explains the knightsbridge process & you can start checking into what vaccines you may need. The fee went up to 210 pds as of 5/1...crazy.

Once you get your LND case number you can book it. May be hard to get a next day appointment haha, but if you're not in a rush then you should be able to get a date that suits you. I think, in general, medicals last 1 year. So if your interview is less than 6 months after the medical then the medical and visa will still be valid for a full 6 months after that.
