Hey everyone! We have been waiting 3 weeks now to receive packet 4 from the embassy. I thought it would take only two weeks. Has anyone else had to wait a long time for packet 4? Another question, our NOA2 expires July 29 and I'm wondering what happens if the interview is scheduled after the expiration of the NOA2. Does that mean we have to start all over again or what? Should I be worried?! Please advise! Thanks!

You don't need to worry about the expiration date, the Embassy has the ability to re-validate the NOA2 if need be.

We have called and we have emailed. They say they cant give us any information when we call and when I emailed, they said that our case is on the waiting list pending for an interview date. So basically they didnt tell me anything new. I want to know why it's taking so long. I try not worry but it's so hard not to!

; I bet they have a pretty busy time :rolleyes:...

Don't worry about validity, like others have mentioned, the Embassy is able to re-validate your NOA2 ..

Hopefully you will hear any time soon.

Good luck!

Kristi, I'm hoping that it didn't get returned by DHL to Cairo if they couldn't find Fady's address. That has happened before with a person on here from Egypt. Fady needs to call the Embassy and ask about your case. The time seems a bit much. Try writing the embassy to ask them to update their schedule page and hopefully you can see your appointment there..Wishing you the best ~ I hope you will get it very soon :)
