K-1 and Medical Interview_Requirements

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

What's required at the medical interview for my fiancee? She told me she needs some MOS number or something, but I'm not sure what she's referring to. Is that the MNL# issued by the NVC, or is it her "A" number?

She has an medical set up for April 2nd, but the NVC told me today that it takes about 15 business days to get the "Case #", which would be April 5. So, I'm trying to find out if we're going to have to reschedule this or not.

I'm pretty sure MNL# is only for Manila embassy, whereas MOS# would be the Moscow consulate case number.

Just keep calling NVC every day or every other day asking for embassy case number, and if/when they have received the approved i129f petition. You can't use the electronic system, you have to speak to a human.

..and yes, MNL is Manila. If the embassy in MoskvaMoscow starts with MOS, your's will most likely start with MOS2012 followed by more numbers, at least something similar to it.

Edit: Danish spelling of Moscow corrected :blush:

From what I have read on some VJ threads is that the medical is good for a year. That being said, you are good to go and you don't have to wait for the MOS#. As far as the MOS# itself, your fiance is right. This is the case number received from NVC for the MOSCOW embassy. This will undoubtedly be needed in order to coordinate for her interview. I'm still waiting on mine and notice date was on the 9th of March. I just got to be patient...sigh!!!

Yes, she is good to go for medical. The MOS# will be needed for the Moscow embassy to coordinate for interview, i.e. registering for interview at http://www.ustraveldocs.com/ru/ru-niv-visapay.asp, paying VISA fee, etc. She can also go to the bank and pay as well.

Another thing, when they say that the fee is $350 or Ruble equivalent, how does the exchange rate effect that? I mean, what if she pulls the Rubles out on one day at 29, and the next day they're trading at 27 again? I guess she'd have to just pay more in RUB?

Keep in mind the MOS# is for the case being assigned to Moscow embassy. You don't necessarily need it to register/schedule interview. In my opinion, it's just good to know if you want to contact the embassy and check if they have your case. Maybe someone else can chime in?

Your question about the $350; just go to the website where you can pay this VISA fee and it has all the instructions and information regarding this online payment. It also has information about going to the bank to make this payment, and even the post office.

Yep, that's how it works.
