Ok...I know this is asked a lot. Matt has his medical on nov 10. He just filled out his ds160 & readiness form. How long should we expect to wait for his interview? The embassy received the file 3 weeks ago (we had to wait for his passport before anything could be taken further). I'm hoping to have him here before Christmas. Am I hoping too much? Is it possible?


I am the petitioner.

Yes, he can easily be there before Christmas. When you submit the applicant readiness form online, be sure to select a marriage date which is very near. Also, where they ask you about specific travel plans, tell them you are planning to fly out on a date that is really close-by. They don''t need any proof of this. The time to interview varies, but this is one way in which you can influence it and make it closer. If you do not hear back from them within a reasonable amount of time, do not hesitate to contact them through their website - I know the opinion is mixed on this one, but I'd rather be pushing for it, than sit and wait endlessly. Good luck!

He put his flight date as being december 17th and wedding December 19th. We do "plan" on him flying out right around the 17th (my birthday). And I figured that is reasonable, too…hopefully they don't decide to wait until around that time to schedule an interview.
