Fiance just heard from the embassy today. Thought I would post this for others wondering as well...

Embassy records indicate that we have not yet received your document checklist, form IV-15. No further action can be taken until we are in receipt of this form. If you have already returned this form, you should note that there is currently a delay of 3 to 4 weeks between the date the forms are received by the Embassy and the date in which they are processed and entered on to our system. As soon as the Immigrant Visa Unit has received your forms and completed the required additional processing on your application you can anticipate receiving an appointment date for an interview within 8 weeks.

Thank you for your e-mail correspondence.

And still we wait. It just scares hell out of me to think it's sitting in a pile someplace. All dressed up and ready to go, but just sitting there.

Sigh... :whistle:

Well, I see by your timeline the checklist was returned 17 days ago. Not very long in London consulate time. Did he e-mail them back telling him what date he sent it?

Yes, that's pretty standard-issue, unfortunately.

Does this mean 12 weeks altogether, 4 to start processing and then another 8 for interview date? Or is it 8 weeks in total from the time you return you P3? Timelines of people who were recently interviewed show that waiting time is 8 weeks in total.

Oh come now London!! How much longer are you going to keep us all away from our loved ones? You better give us a date in under 8 weeks :angry:

Guys,

I can understand your frustration with the waiting, especially with regards to London... but try and be a little patient.

London does send out these "standard" replies that always exagerate the actually time that you will have to wait.

I share your frustration at the fact that London takes 2-3 weeks just to open a letter! :no: I too am waiting for them to open a letter of mine!

BUT I think you don't really need to add the 4 weeks onto the 8 weeks that they say, normally 8 weeks is a max. time, you should normally get a letter through relatively quickly ( I got mine within a month) and then the interview date can be a month after that date, so not too long between correspondance of some sort!!

Hang in there guys, this whole process is a waiting game! :clock:
