Can somebody tell me when can I schedule my interview with the embassy, in other words when is the clue to do it. Thanks

Andrew

As soon as you get your Bogota case number from NVC. Do the online DS-156. Pay online the VISA fee of $240 via the website mentioned in the Packet 3/4 I previously posted. As soon as you pay the fee, you will be able to schedule your appointment. You do not need to wait for the package to arrive at the embassy.

So once I get my case number from the NVC I can register online or does my fiancee have to register online. Secondly I will be paying for the Visa if that is a factor. Please reply. Thank you

I registered the account under her name several months ago. I logged into her account, I payed with my VISA, and scheduled the appointment. I then told my future esposa the date of interview. I then called Dr. Dennis and scheduled the medical appointment. I then called the hotel and reserved the room. I then called the airlines and made all the reservations for me and her. I rather do all this because she is at work and doesn't get much time to do anything. She lives in Barranquilla and will fly out to Bogota on Avianca. I will depart from Miami via Spirit. I got a free return ticket using my miles.

wow, you mean to tell me that you can now schedule the K1 visa interview date at the embassy in bogota?

I remember having to wait for the package to arrive at the embassy and then keeping an eye on the monthly schedules posted in advance by the embassy and seeing which day had arbitrarily been chosen for the interview date.

this of course made for last minute airline scheduling and such like a great inconvenience and more costly.

Yeap... as of September 2011 they started the web-based system. Also I received the packet email and said that they no longer slow snail mail the packets anymore.

So when you went online to schedule your appointment for your fiancee was that the soonest available date? I asked because that is almost two months from the time you received your NOA2... Why so long?

Did you ever receive a letter from the NVC with case number? It has been about 13 days since my NOA2 was approved or should I go ahead and email NVC as you suggested?

Sorry to bother you but one last question. I have registered an account under my fiancee just to get familiar with the website. When I logged in I did not see an option to pay for visa fee but I did see 1) location of courier 2) schedule appointment and a few others which I cant remember right now. So my questions is when I click on schedule appointment will it take me to pay for visa page first then schedule appointment. Thanks for your assistance.
