Any recent New Delhi K1 Interviews? Looking for help

I was really hoping someone reads this that recently went through the K1 fiance visa interview in New Delhi. I thought I have everything figued out until I received the letter from the embassy (technically it was emailed to me from ustraveldocs) today.

Basically, for the k1 I was under the impression that my fiance needed to complete the DS-160. However, the letter said to complete the DS-260 and I called the number at the bottom of the letter and they said that New Delhi treats K1 visas as Immigrant visa's so we needed to complete the DS-260 instead of the DS-160.

Is there anyone on here that recently went through New Delhi and can help clarify things for me?

Did you run into any other issues such as this that I can expect to have to deal with? Finally, how long did it take for you to get your appointment once you tried to schedule it?

I'm greatful for any help I can get.

Thank you

Hello, I too am working to schedule an interview appointment in New Delhi. The embassy and ustraveldocs have stale or conflicting information posted in a couple of places, and I have received outright inaccurate information from ustraveldocs via email. I received an email that mentioned DS-260, but found the link from the website mentions DS-160 http://newdelhi.usembassy.gov/ivdocforms.html. My research indicates DS-160, which my fiance completed. The CGI scheduler accepted the confirmation number just fine. BUT, on the CGI scheduler I had to click "immigrant visa", and THEN you will find the option for the K1. Very confusing. Anyway, I just checked and the only appointments currently available are Nov 4/5 and Nov 13/14 in New Delhi. Much wider selection if you don't mind traveling to Mumbai. My problem is exactly the opposite in that we need a much later appointment date, since I am trying my best to attend the interview. No other dates appear to be available or open yet in New Delhi, and I have emailed the embassy to check my options.

Hope this helps.

I am the Petitioner
