8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Has anyone e-mailed the Londom consulate before? How long did it take to receive a response? I e-mailed them on the 2nd and haven't heard back yet. Should I expect to soon?


2006

July 30th - sent off I-130s

August 7th - I-130s filed with USCIS and we receive our notification postcard a few days later

Nov 5th - sent in the DS-2001 part 1 and the DS 2001

Nov 6th - received our packet 3 stuff, which I took as I-130 approvals

Nov 13th - received packet 4 - interview scheduled for Dec 14th

Nov 20th - had medicals

Nov 24-ish - received our actual I-130 approvals, I have no idea why they took so long to arrive!

Dec 14th - interviews - approved!

Dec 16th - visas delivered

For me, they didn't answer questions like did you get my P3? They only answered when it was something I needed changed on my case. But yeah, only 3 days for that.

In addition, remember today is a US federal holiday and the embassy may be recognizing it as such so you may not get anything today either.


YMMV

Thanks for the info.

It was general questions really, rather than anything related to my case number.

I wish there was a phone number with info. I've called the premium number which is really for non-immirant visas mostly, and have been on the phone for like 5 and a half minutes (at £1.20 a minute!) just for them to tell me they can't give detailed answers, only basic ones and that I should e-mail the consulate.

Oh well.

What are you trying to find out? Many people on here are quite knowledgable and the UK embassy site is quite good.

I waited a long time. I had emailed them to ask if they had set up an interview date. I think they waited to respond until they had an interview date. I waited over 2 weeks. If you're asking if there is an interview date, they will probably respond once they have the date to give you.
