Hello,

So I called the National Visa Center and they are sending our petition back to New Delhi for a 2nd interview..yay!! they said the petition should arrive there in 10 to 15 days. Has anyone been through this before?

We are wondering:

- Will the interview be scheduled and if so, will it take as long as the first interview to schedule? it took us 5 weeks to get the 1st interview.

- does my fiance have to repay fees again and fill out packet 3 and 4 again?

- Does he turn in the new documentation at VFS or bring with him to interview?

An FYI, our petition was not re-affirmed by USCIS. I had faxed my senator a 5 page letter which they sent to Delhi Embassy on our behalf. We got a letter through the senator's office stating a senior consular official had reviewed our case and they were recalling our petition back from NVC (it had already been sent there) and they were granting us a second interview..yay!

thanks!!

Well congratulations, you've struggled and fought through 2 interviews and beat the messed up sytem!!! :dance::dance::dance:

So what was the difference between the first and the last interview and what could you have done differently the first time?

Also did you have to refile the DS forms and repay the visa fees and all that?

In any case great job and enjoy your lives in America together!!
