Nope. Just send the forms as instructed on the website. London doesn't want you to lose your important documents, so you take them with you to the interview instead. You're probably looking at Step 2 on the link below? You just send the DS-2001 and a cover letter with the info they ask for, and if you haven't already sent them, you can send the other forms too (DS-230, 156 etc. the list is on the right hand side and in Step 1).

Excellent! Saved the day twice! Many thanks! X

s'cool. I've been doing the same thing at every step - I know the answer, until it comes to me actually having to do it myself, and then I don't know what's going on! Such a high-risk process that you don't want to screw it up.

Ok I know I'm rubbish but need help again.....all forms ready to go to London embassy but what do I send with them if anything at all? Do I send my birth cert etc or is that all at interview? Sorry guys! X

Do you have your packet 3 letter of instruction from London? Your timeline doesn't indicate you do is why I'm asking. If you do, then read the part where it says do not send any documents to this office.

If you don't have your letter, then London is not ready for you to send anything. This post might help you http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/350185-london-2012-k1s-from-noa2-to-interview-thread/?p=5137390

So do you book your medical and your interview on the same day?

No. London books the interview for you (or, rather for K1 I believe the NVC schedules it, but it has the same effect). You can't book your own interview appointment.

You book your own medical. London needs to be in receipt of the forms and the medical results to get you an interview date.

These are the instructions you'll get from the embassy in "Packet 3", which is basically just a letter with your LND number (needed to book the medical) and a link to this page: http://london.usembassy.gov/iv_15.html

The interview takes place some weeks after the medical. About 6, going by current timelines (you'll get notified a couple weeks after the medical and forms are in, and it'll give you enough notice for the interview by 3 or 4 weeks or so, sometimes as little as 2 weeks notice)

Forms gone in and medical is booked for July 2nd!!!!! Whhhhhooooo!!!! Do you think it will be long after medical that my interview can happen? What stage are you at?

I dunno! I reckon if your forms are in and your medical has no hitches, you could get an interview first half of August, but I'd mentally prepare for later in that month. August isn't so far, right? You should at least know *when* your interview will be before July is over. Someone else posted today in the London section that they also have their medical on the 2nd July too, so maybe you should follow them and see how fast they get theirs: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/8321-london-medical-knightsbridge-doctors/?p=6313342

I had my medical yesterday (all seems fine, not heard anything back from them, so assume OK), and my forms went in and were received on Tuesday. SOOOO.. I'm fingers-crossed I get a date back from them in the next 2 weeks. I might *just* slip in to a late July appointment, but I reckon I should just expect August and be surprised if it's sooner.

Ah, I'm one of the fortunate ones. We're DCF because the husband is in London now. His UK visa expires end of July, so we're trying to get this done before then so we're not split up. I feel for everyone who is apart though - I remember how horrible it was before he lived here. It's really no fun. :( You're nearly at the end though! It's THIS CLOSE. Good luck!
