How to file an expedite??

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey all!

Both USCIS & NVC approved an expedite for us.

The NVC sent my half completed case to the Embassy in London.

I have my medical booked for the 6th & all the documents i need for my interview are being posted to me tomorow.

I cant seem to find out anywhere HOW i go about expediting my case in London though

Do i send a letter in when i send in my DS-230-Part 1 and Form 2001? (im asuming i can send them together? Anybody know?)

The only contact ive had from the Embassy is a short phone call, no letters or packets or anything..

Has anyone here got any information on how i can expedite my case at this stage?

Thanks guys!

Do i send a letter in when i send in my DS-230-Part 1 and Form 2001? (im asuming i can send them together? Anybody know?)

That's what I would do. Instead of a traditional cover letter, I would title the page REQUEST FOR CR1 VISA EXPEDITE in slightly larger font so they will notice it over everybody's applications.

Then just go on with

-the reason for expedite (mention of USCIS and NVC approved expedites)

-your LNDxxxxxxx case number

-date of medical exam

-that you have enclosed [name DS-xxx documents and expedite things if applicable]

-name a date ie, "I am requesting an interview the week of February 13 if you have an available appointment". Doesn't hurt to say what you prefer and that gives your medical results time to get there.

-your email address

Then thank them and add signature like a letter would have.

If you have a long-winded expedite reason, maybe write that separate (REASONS FOR EXPEDITE) and attach to documents proving need to expedite. Keep the statement on the cover letter brief like "I am requesting a military expedite".

That's about all the ideas I have. Good luck.
