How long did it take you to get your interview at the US Embassy in London after your medical?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance is from England! We filed for our k1 back in October, 2010. Needless to say, this process is taking FOREVER for us. We've been very unlucky. But that aside, he had his medical today and it went really well! It did get me to thinking about other people in England having their medical and then going off to the interview. We've not heard back from the Embassy yet.

What was the date of your medical?

What was the date of your interview?

I've heard most people are told whether or not they will be approved or denied at the interview and usually 2 weeks later have their visa in hand. I hope this is true for us!

Hi there good luck to you, your nearly at the end of the K1 so thats great, I had problems with my medical so I was approved pending the medical, but once all that was resolved I had my visa within 5 days.

Just look forward now to being together and all the waiting will fade away.

Good Luck with your poe and entrance to the usa.

Matt had his medical June 3. I called DOS on June 17 and was told his interview date would be July 19. We received packet 4 confirming this on June 23. (I was glad I had called, it was nice to know). Hope that is helpful.

I suggest you move over to the UK Forum where there's lots of chatter on this subject. Just start reading threads and looking at timelines. No need to start a new thread. Join in with the group.
