Florence picked up her application packet at the US embassy in Accra today. It took most of the day with long lines and much waiting but we finally have an interview date - January 17, 2012. The long delay is a disappointment but at least we know what will happen next and when it will happen. I'm planning my next visit to Ghana :yes: The only thing I am not looking forward to is the long, expensive flight from Alaska but once I am there with her, it's all worth it.

Congratulations to you and yours! Today Fred picked up his packet today as well our interview date is January 12, 2012. what they hell! I look at other peoples time-line and they started the process around the same time or even after us and the time-line looks nothing like Ghana. I do not understand the delay. If anyone has any suggestions on what we can do to change the date too a sooner date I will welcome your suggestions. this has got to be a mistake or should I just be grateful to get an interview date? Also, it says the NOA2 expires September 2011 should that mean anything too me?

I am happy and sad at the same time.

Unfortunately this is not a mistake. There is noting you can do about it. If spots open up they will contact your fiance but that hardly ever happens where they change the interview date. The embassy in Ghana is pretty busy.

Be grateful that you did not go the CR1/IR1 route. Some people are waiting for over a year and still do not have an interview date.

Congrats :thumbs: I know it's several months away b4 the interview! But, think of it as atleast knowing that you have a date in which to plan for the interview. Right now, alot of us are disappointed that we have not heard anything at all. One way or the other, good, bad, or otherwise....nothing. :blink:
