How long before email w/interview date?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, me again. So we sent package 3 on 2/29 after finally getting the police certificate. It was sent EMS so they should get it today 3/1. For those of you that have already 'been there and done that' how long after they received your package 3 did you get the email with your interview date? I'm thinking an interview date mid May based on their published 75 day average wait.

Thanks in advance,

M&T

If you click on your timeline on your profile and then "show similar timelines" it says from noa2 to interview is around 71 days right now. Remember that is an estimate so it could be shorter or longer. As for us getting the email it was about 22 or 23 days for us to get the email for the interview date and time after sending packet 3 but that was about 11 months ago. Good luck with the upcoming interview!

Hi Mark and Took, you might be looking around one month plus or minus from the date you submitted your packet 3 documents. I wish you all the best, and that your fiancee' would have a smooth time at the Embassy. The guy over there was very pleasant.

That is good to hear about your interview experience. Mark and Took good luck and hope you get good sailing.

Thanks for the replies! We are hoping for middle of May interview or sooner. I wish I was there now. Recently someone has tried to break into Took's apt.....twice! I'm a little worried for her safety. I gave her some tips about leaving the tv on when gone and lights at night etc. Management at that place won't do anything like put up notices to have residents keep a look out. They think it will scare away future tenants and worry about money instead of people's safety! Man I hope they catch that person.....or I do!! We need to get this done her moved here.....c'mon IV unit.

Congrats on getting visa!! I hope we get the same interview officer you had and things go that smooth for us. When do you plan to enter? What POE? I'm hoping Took and I can go through the same entry line together at the POE. I'll be curious how they treat you on entry. I'm the citizen and travel a lot for work and my experiences are 50/50.....sometimes nice, sometimes rude. You never know what you're gonna get. Good luck!
