Well I have no idea.. Even if you do get your interview. They way the embassy has been closed every other day. It is gonna delay your visa process even after approval. Like in our case we have been waiting since more then a week to receive our visa. But due to conditions they are not sending out post. Lets just hope they end this protest and let the normal life of pakistan resume.

Hi, I had been there for interview on 22nd Aug. Embassy was opened. Situation is not much worst as media creating hype..I faced two blockage near Pindi and once entering ISB. Once you are in ISB then there is no blockage for reaching Embassy. There was considerable rush for shuttle service due to which i got late around 1.5 hours but they accommodated. I was there at 6:00AM and came back at 12:00PM. Finally my interview was successful :dancing: . He said, Congratulations, i have approved your visa and you will get passport in two weeks. Thanks God :)

Thank you... I chose G.T road from LHR to ISB because every tv channel was saying twin cities are sealed. i thought if motorway is blocked at the end then there is no alternative way but from G.T road there are many alternative option to reach in city. Express highway was blocked when i reached there but it was opened when i came back. I went from Faizabad. Police stopped me but i showed them interview letter and they let me go.. within ISL there is no problem. there was huge rush in shuttle service facility. they did not open the gate before 6 for cars but people were walking in to get ticket before 6. Your case is genuine just ask her to be confident. keep some pictures with you. InshaAllah you will get success :)

I have a couple question for you guys... my fiancee did her medical exam today. She didn't have any records of the vaccines she's had in her life so we assumed they would give her vaccines. But they didn't. They told her she would only need a polio vaccine (which she has had in the past), but that she would get that at the AIRPORT upon her departure! Does that sound right? Then they told her that because of it being a fiancee visa that she would have to get the rest of her vaccines after she arrives in the US.

And one other question... are you guys taking a police report to your interviews? The papers we got said "bring police report - EXCEPT Pakistan and Afghanistan". So she is not getting a police report. She went to the police station and they told her even that they could not give her one unless they had orders from the Embassy.

Ans 1. I also never had vaccination in life but i got 2 vaccinations at time of medial test in lahore for Hepatites A and Tetanus.

Ans 2. I called NVC to confirm, do i need police certificate or not as it is mentioned that for Pakistan it is not required. They suggested me to bring one to consulate. You do not need to go police station. You should contact police facilitation centre and they will send it to you by courier with in 10 days if you are in lahore. Majore cities have proper SOP for police certificate but in small cities you can get from police station.
