U.S. Embassy in Cairo

Filed: K-3 Visa Country: Egypt

Working on K3 - we sent our Packet 3 papers back to the Embassy and it said in the initial letter that we received when getting the packet 3 that it would take no longer than 10 days. Well it's been allot longer than that and still have not received anything regarding an interview date.

My question is - one of our friends went through the Embassy in Cairo and they were told that if they call to check on the status that their papers would be delayed. I am not sure if that was because of repeated calling or what. So do I dare call to ask what the status is on our papers?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Cairo is notoriously slow... with everything. Though we filed K1 it took about 3 weeks to get an interview date. You can call, but its not easy to get through. I think 3 to 4 weeks is not unreasonable for Cairo to give up an interview date. Maybe others can shed more light.

Well, we filed a CR-1 but we also recieved the letter from the Embassy in Cairo stateing thank you blah blah blah, you will recieve your interivew date within 10 business days. It took 2 months to get our date and had to wait another month for the actual date. We never even recieved notice by TNT, we got the news by checking the interview schedule online. We did call also, and no it was not delayed because of this, I personally knew a few other people who filed at the same time and recived their interview date at the same time as us. By the way (hint) you will get a better response from the Embassy by contacting them by E-mail than by phone. GOOD LUCK!!!!!!

Here's a link to the Interview schedule:


Here's the Consular's E-mail:

I agree with AshkiA. I think I would email rather than call. If I remember correctly, it costs a lot of money to call. If you email, make sure you include your case number and all other revelant information.
