Share with me , those of you that have gotten to this point (or past). Did you get an actual letter from the embassy with instructions , or did you get an email that told you how to proceed. I guess Im a little confused as to what an actual appointment letter vs a packet 4. I know that other Embassy's vary, so I was just trying to figure this out. Thanks everyone. BTW this is the email I got:

Ms. Stacey,

This email is to inform you that we are in receipt of your fiancé’s K1 visa file. Please have him follow and complete instructions provided in the below link;

Immigration Unit, US Embassy Riyadh

Every country is different but what you have seems like is packet 3.5. Follow the requirement and send them what they are asking for. You will then receive further email or mail regarding your interview date.

I received an email for packet 3.5. This is for Pakistan.

Edited by NoProblem

07/27/17 - K1 packet sent at the end of day.

07/31/17 - NOA1

03/22/18 - NOA2

08/28/18 - expected date for medical completion - Sputum test was needed

09/22/18 - anticipated interview date

While I have no specific knowledge of KSA procedures, the plain language of that email seems to indicate that the email is what you go by, not a hard copy letter.

Are you talking about just mailing things into Saudi, where are you in Saudi? After our NOA2 was approved I used UPS to send all the other important documents. ( It cost a lot more than mail, but worth it) On average when I send him mail or letters, it takes a month to get to him :( Just make sure when you send important stuff, you do it all at once and save some time and money. Tkcr & good luck. -Stacey
