6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hello friends,

i received a letter yesterday that Im scheduled for interview on 3rd week of september. my problem is i just got hired 2wks ago on a new job and the interview date is the day I'm working. I wouldn't have enough vacation time and i honestly don't want to call in since I'm still on the 90 days probation. if i rescheduled it, after how many months should i wait for another interview?

thank you

Please take a look at this post, it should be helpful. Based on other applicants' experiences, it looks like on average you can expect a 1-3 month delay, although that's not always the case.

Also note that those experiences are spread out over the past 5 years, so see if you can do your own search and come up with more recent examples.

Basically, what you'll find is that rescheduling will cause a delay, but not a significant one (if you think a couple of months is not significant).

Personal opinion: any time you interact with USCIS, there's a chance that they'll mess something up. So if you have to reschedule, do it, but talk to your new boss first and see how he feels about giving you a day off for the interview. If it's going to be a problem, go ahead and reschedule.

I echo the above. Bring a copy of the appointment letter to your boss. Explain the circumstances. See if they can give you a day off without pay. It's the federal government, you didn't mean for this to happen in the middle of your new job, etc. etc. Most employers will understand that you need a day off for an official appointment with immigration.

Don't reschedule if you can avoid it.

Regards,

Bill
