Visa appointment letter

The appointment letter willcome after your petition cleas NVC and the embassy reviews your petition and schedules your appointment for the interview for the visa

Partly true, as the previous post said you will get the Invitation letter (or appointment letter if u wanna call it that way) after your petition is forwarded from NVC to the Consulate in Juarez, the consulate will issue and mail that letter to both petitioner and beneficiary. If your petition is in Juarez already it might take a couple weeks for you to get the letter. After you get it you have to schedule the interview yourself in the indicated website. You can actually schedule it before you get the letter too but you will need to bring the letter to the interview so you might as well wait for it, they usually have availability within the next couple weeks so the wait to go interview is not too long.

Note that most of the invitation letters never arrive to the beneficiary in Mexico but do get to the petitioner in the US, If that's the case you can scan it and email it to your fiance in Mx and that should be good. Good luck!

The invitation letter is a letter inviting you to make an appointment. Some people call it an appointment letter. It was sent to my (now) wife in Mexico and to me here in the US and we both got it - though it was sent at the same time and she got it 10 days later than I did.
