I am getting slightly lost...not due to lack of information, but from too much information. My husband's been looking at the London embassy's site, Department of State and visajourney.com timelines and has in the process got himself (and me) throughly confused.

What we basically want to know is, based on or situation, what happens now and about how long should it take until the medical and interview? We have sent the NVC the affidavit of support packet of forms and the ds-230 packet and have recieved a case complete notification from them. What happens now, keeping in mind that we are doing this through the London embassy? Does 'case complete' mean that all of the information included in the i864 and ds230 was satisfactory or will these forms now need to be looked at and approved by the embassy? (I ask this because it seems like the NVC processed the I864 remarkably quickly, it was recieved by them on the 17th of Feb and by the 21st we'd gotten 'case complete'...and on some websites we've looked at (department of state possibly) it has said that the embassy can take 12 weeks to approve the forms and another 4-6 to assign a visa interview date). Does the NVC assign the interview date or will this be done by the embassy?

I'm sorry there are so many questions, we thought we had it all figured out and then made the mistake of searching around :lol: .

Thank you, we haven't gotten the letter from the NVC yet (about how long did you have to wait before you recieved this? we only know the case is completed by using the NVC's automated message thing) but we will try calling that number soon! :yes:

Call the NVC automated line again, this will tell you the date your file was sent to London, then you will get the letter to confirm this!!

yup, we've already gotten that in advance but thanks! :)

I can tell you what happened in my case.

We got the automated message with case approval and the confirmation letter a few weeks later.

This means that the NVC have checked the affidavit of support and DS-230 to see if it qualifies, but they do not "approve" it as such, the Embassy does that part, but if they have sent it to the Embassy it will be ok.

It is all dealt with by the Embassy from then on, the NVC plays no further part and any correspondence will be with you, the potential immigrant, not the US citizen.

What happens next is the Embassy will check over the documents and approve them officially then they will send out packet 4 to you with details of the medical exam and an interview date.

All you have to do is get the relevant paperwork together (birth/marriage certificates, DS-230ptII, vaccination records etc.) schedule a medical exam and go to the interview.

Now the bad news, my case was completed and sent to the London Embassy in late Oct. they processed and approved the NVC documents on Nov. 24th. but it took them until March 9th to give me an interview!

The interview part was a breeze (except for the two hour wait outside) there is no "interview" as such, you go to a window, like at the Post Office and they scan your fingerprints and get you to sign the DS-230 ptII they asked hardly anything and I was in and out of the Embassy in around 30mins.

Hang in there, you've got a ways to go but the hard part is over.

Good Luck!

Thank you for all that info! It certainly clarifies a lot of things for us. As you can see from my updated signature timeline we have found out that the embassy have our case and we've been told by e-mail that we should hear from them within the next four weeks. I have read that around the time you said you were waiting for your interview they had a backlog of work so maybe that was why yours took so long, hopefully they'll have sped up by now but either way we'll just have to be patient. :) thanks again!
