I wish, but I can relate to being a nervous wreck! I'm trying not to freak out about getting that far without time running out on our I-129F. Montreal just got the petition 4/19 and it expires 7/13. Complicating matters is the fact that my fiance put out to have his passport renewed (he paid to expedite!) on 3/20 since it wasn't going to meet the time requirements for expiration, and so far still no passport. Once you submitted your Packet 3 were you able to schedule an interview fairly quickly? As far as the nervousness, deep breaths, don't panic, and hopefully the worst is behind you. Best of luck with the interview!

hi evilsquee.....unfortunately you can't book an interview until you receive notice that your packet 3 contents were successful....and you receive notice of packet 4, which gives permission to book medical and interview. sometimes interviews take a while to book as they only release a certain amount of dates and times at a time....this itself can take a while. dont worry about passing the end date on your I 129F...I dd....and it happens. i sent the consulate an email and they replied with an okay....with no expiry date.....i think you have a year to get things rolling from the initial date of the I 129, but don't quote me. i also had to get passports renewed and got them back within a week! you also need to register with dhl for your visa return....all this info comes in your packet 3 instructions.

check out more on this site....particularly the pinned posts on the first page of this regional discussion....they contain loads of info to help you out.

good luck....and take deep breaths yourself...you'll need it when completing the forms online....I found this the most frustrating part!!

You will be fine. I had my interview this morning, with my kids, and it was fine. I was stressed last night -- crazy! But just have all the documentation you need and you'll be ok. I had everything neatly organized in the order they stated in the checklist, but it was asked for all willy-nilly, which was a bit of a pain. Just make sure you have your appointment letter and passport ready when you go in the door, and keep them in hand until you get off the elevator. Good luck!


The K-1 Visa journey for myself and my two K-2 children:

AOS: NOA1 2012-11-20; Biometrics 2012-12-14; AP/EAD approved 2013-1-11; Interview 2013-1-31; 2-yr Green cards in hand 2013-2-9 (101 days total)

ROC: NOA1 11-7-14; Biometrics 12-1-14; 10-yr Green cards ordered 4-13-15! (157 days total)

Counting down to naturalization time!

Because her son is a US citizen and they are not allowed to be issued visas. He is required to enter the USA on a US passport.

I know we need to wait to book the interview until they send Packet 4, I saw on the forums you could book as soon as you confirm it's been sent though. There's nothing in packet 4 that you'd need to wait for it to arrive via mail is there?

For me the most frustrating part is getting my Canadian fiance to actually get stuff done promptly, he works too much! @___@';;

Because her son is a US citizen and they are not allowed to be issued visas. He is required to enter the USA on a US passport.

The denial sucks but at least it seems fixable. Hopefully it gets sorted out soon!
