:bonk: I have not received packet 3 and the mail system in Colombia has a reputation of not delivering the mail. I took care of this by submitting packet 3 on my own and not waiting for the embassy to send it. The interviews for March were updated and I missed the cut . So today I called the embassy which has a pin system and I payed to talk to them about my interview date/time. I was told that they have no access to this information and to wait for packet 4. I said if you don't update the site like you did for March until Feb 28th how are people who have march 1 -5 appts. supposed to make the interview if they never got packet 4 or a date for the interview. They were dumb founded and told me you would have to probably reschedule.....it absolutely amazing. Clown logic :jest:

Anyone ever run into a similar problem. How do you get info about your interview if Packet 4 does a no show and no one will give you info. I could see a March 31 update on the website with an April 1 interview date and the only one who knows about it is the person who entered it into the system :bonk:

Hi Craig,

01-13-06 - K-1 Petition Arrived at US Embassy in Bogotá, Colombia.

01-19-06 - Johanna Faxed & Sent by Courier (Passport Copy, OF-169, DS-2001 & DS-230 part 1).

01-23-06 - Johanna received packet 3.

01-30-06 - Johanna received packet 4.

It took 10 day from the time the package got to the U.S. Embassy in Bogotá, Colombia until Johanna received it and it took 11 day from when they got the required documents until Johanna received it. I bet she will probably receive it by the beginning of next week. :yes:

Good luck,

Peter Miami

Your concerns are valid. That is the potential problem with sending the forms in before the system is ready for them. If you are going to do this you really ought to have a very good friend or family member in Bogota. If you get the interview scheduled before you receive the packet 4 you wont be allowed in the consulate for the interview. If you see this is happening you will need somebody in Bogota with a notarized letter giving them permission to get a copy of the packet 4.

I also notice a pattern that you always seem to post negative stuff. Now the question is to respond or to ignore you like the jackass I'm sure you are. KMA flycatcher :bonk:
