Post medical, notification of readiness and letter of intent date advice needed

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I've had a browse through the forums, and couldn't seem to find the information I needed, so am hoping someone could let me know, or point me in the right direction.

1) My medical results were delayed being sent to the embassy, as the physician that carried out my assessment wanted some further information from my GP. I sent over the requested information two weeks later (a delay on my GP's side), and when I rang to check Knightsbridge Doctor's yesterday, they said my medical results were sent to the US Embassy on Monday. I realise how paranoid this may sound, but I assume this means that the Knightsbridge physician was happy with the additional information I submitted (surely if they were not, I would be contacted again?) ?

2) I submitted my notification of readiness approximately 3 weeks ago, but am aware they couldn't issue me with an interview date until they received my medical results. The London US Embassy website states they are currently processing notification of readiness forms submitted before and on Nov 2. As they only received my medical results on Nov 3, will my submission be included with this as I sent it earlier (hopefully I can expect a letter about the interview in the next few weeks)?

3) After checking CEAC, our case is coming up as 'Ready' and status updated date as Nov 4. I imagine this is to reflect they have received the medical results (I really hope). I'm sure I read that CEAC shows 'Ready' when they are still waiting for information. Does anyone if it also shows as 'Ready' when they are ready to issue an interview date?

4) If I am issued an interview date in 6 weeks, it will after my priority date. From what I have read on other VJ forums, this shouldn't be a problem, I would just need to bring a new letter of intent from my fiancé to take to the interview, stating he still wishes to marry me (he does, woohoo!). Does the date of the letter matter? I have a letter of intent from September this year (when I last saw him), which was only written as he had read somewhere (quite possibly on VJ) that I would need another one for the interview, regardless.

As I said earlier, I'm sorry if similar topics have been covered elsewhere, and the slightly paranoid tone of this email. I really would any appreciate any help, or advice where to look.

Thank you in advance! :)

1. Yes fine.

2. Expect letter in a few weeks...hopefully 2 or less.

3. It says Ready until a couple of days after interview. Then it will change to AP, then Issued.

4. Your September letter will be fine. They say (in your instruction letter) you need one in London to revalidate an expired petition, but often don't ask for them.
