Scheduling the Interview?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Was just reading few a few topics on here and I noticed that some people have said that they scheduled their interview at the Embassy online? (This wasn't for the Embassy in London) but I'm just wondering have I missed something? Since I sent my Forms, had my medical and paid my MRV fee I've just been waiting to hear back about it.. I wasn't meant to call up or go online to schedule my interview was I? huh.png

Also, I was reading my receipt from paying the MRV Fee, and noticed that it says that it is a recipt for the nonimmigrant visa application fee? Nonimmigrant? Is that right? I thought the K1 was an immigrant visa.. Does it matter what it says on the receipt?

All this waiting time has given me plenty of opportunity to worry about the details wink.png

The K1 is a *non*immigrant visa. It's purpose is to allow someone to legally enter the USA to get married and have a path to AOS (which is when you become an immigrant).

London schedule the interview for you - you'll get a letter. If it's been a while since you had your medical and sent the forms (they need to have the medical results and the DS-2001 readiness form before they'll schedule you one), you can call them and see what's up, but the letter seems to arrive about 2-3 weeks before your interview date (which is generally about 6-8 weeks after your medical looking at similar timelines).

I reckon you'll probably get an interview letter through sometime at the end of this month, for an interview sometime in June. If you fill out your timeline, you can get it to show you other timelines that are similar to yours - so you can find people who had NOA2s/medicals etc. around the same time so you can see when they're likely to schedule yours.

Ooooh I will do that!

I hope I do hear by the end of this month, it's already been 5 weeks so it's definitely due soon!

(When I called they said it usually takes about 6 weeks from the point they receive the DS Forms)

I love this website. Don't know how I'd get all my questions answered without it! luv.gif
