How long do you recieve a letter after a consular appointment?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiancee and I had our Consular appointment in the Dominican Republic on September 27, 2011. We were interviewed ask to wait (for 5 hours). Then we got a longer interview with someone else. After waiting another hour they called us and told us that we would be receiving a letter in two weeks. We were not told if we were denied and no letter ever arrived. I called the embassy several times they had no information.

Finally I received information from USCIS that they had received our case in December of 2011 for further review. It is now March and I've been living here in Dominican Republic with my finacee ever since september.

I wanted to know:

If anyone has been through this.

How long does it take to get a letter?

Is there a chance of a second interview?

What is the best way to go about this. Should we just marry and forget about the Fiancee visa.

I would appreciate any help with this.

I did never got as far as you did, however We have decided to just get married and go that route. The only drawback that I see for you is that Waiting time.. but hey, Good things come to those who wait!!

Keep calling USCIS so they tell you more information about the current further review that your case is going through. If you get married, the wait will be regretful. So first make sure if your current case can still be saved. And yes, a second interview IS possible, IF your case is not completely denied.

If your case is in UCSI for further review why dont your try contacting the congressman of where your live here in the U.S. to see if he can call and find out your status. FYI I know another member here posted that they were now reviewing December applications.

maybe you have a 'mailing' problem?

Call into USCIS when they are open, inquire about 'returned mail pieces' with a Tier 2 Human, an ISO (not the first person that answers the phone).

Perhaps the letter was sent, and you've never received it?


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.
