I emailed on Friday and the response:

The Immigrant Visa Unit can confirm receipt of the completed forms. There is

currently a delay before we can complete action on your fiance's case and

notify him of the appointment date and time. You can expect to receive

written confirmation of the date and time of your appointment in 8 weeks.

what happened to 4-6 weeks - Now its 8 !!!!! FFS :bonk:

LNDXXXXXXXXX - K1 Visa

We would like to request the soonest available date. XXXXXX completed his medical on 11/11/05 in Birmingham.

He returned Packet 3 to the London Consular on December 12th, 2005. Your assistance in assigning his interview date is greatly appreciated. We would like to be able to pre-plan flights to reduce travel expenses for both XXXXXX's journey to Montana and also for family members planning to attend our wedding on May 6th, 2006, however we realize we cannot do this until he completes his K1 interview.

Sincerely,

XXXXXX XXXXXXX

Am I emailing them to much??????? :(

Just want to plan and the last email that say 8 weeks really upset me, so I fired off this email to them today.

I'm going insane not being able to plan!

There's a delay cos they're bloody lazy lol.

I sent them info the other day except for the info on postage date....they said they couldnt help me as they needed a spostage date!

I know where you're coming from entirely and Im also up against the clock as I need to get to the US to my fiancee for personal reasons aside from the norm, too. Its a pain in the ####### but Im sure there's a light at the end of the tunnel.

Thanks for all the support guys :) I think my last email may have shown a bit of desperation as the newest email I received from them says my fiance can expect to receive confirmation in aproximately 2 weeks.

I used to like rollercoasters when I was a child... :unsure:

Thanks again for the support :) MoJOoOOoooo Come on london!

Alison, I cant wait to hear about your interview :)
