Calling DOS

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello:

I have seen posts on calling DOS and trying to get a REAL person but I must have outdated info. I get all the way to the end and there is no option to talk to a real person and 0 takes you back to the main menu. Does anyone have recent experience with this? I am trying to see if medical has been received and if there is an interview date. Thanks!

Are you skipping pressing 1 before pressing 0?

Hi,

The DOS number I called a few weeks ago was (202)663-1225, press 1 then 0 to speak to someone.

They open from 8.30am (1.30pm English time) I had no problems getting through.

There is also a link that stu4lee gave me which worked sometimes :)

select immigrant visa and then put in your LND number.

This is correct, press 1 then 0. I couldn't figure it out when I first called either! But do this and you'll definitely get through :D

They seem to have changed a lot of their options. But 1+0 eventually got me through, although the woman hung up on me the first time. Something very odd going on.

Also that CEAC stat tracker seems to be totally dead and has been over the last few days. Anyone know if it's moved?
