K1 Visa Interview - How do we get one?

Hi VJ Followers,

We have submitted all paperwork. Got NOA2, got packet 3, and filled out DS160. As per the instructions we emailed the US Embassy a copy of the DS160 confirmation page and passport biographic information page. We have not heard anything from the embassy as yet and it has been over 3 weeks. Do we contact the embassy? Do they schedule the interview or do we? The US Embassy webiste is a bit confusing.

Best,

Empress!

They schedule the interview. How did u receive packet 3? Usually they will send packet 4 the same way.

NVC received our file 10/27/14. I've emailed them twice and just keep getting an automated response no Packet 3. Should I worry too?

Hi All,

Thank you for the responses. I have seen the update to the Kingston Embassy website and see that they schedule the interview. We are missing each other so much, it feels like forever. But we know this is momentary stress.... Thanks again everyone!!!

HI LionessDeon,

I would not worry. Your fiance should be getting packet 3 via mail any day. You can start getting the below paperwork before getting packet 3 in the mail. For the police record they say bring packet 3 with you, but i don't think they looked at it when my fiance went.

It just mentions all the appropriate paper work he needs to go get:

Police Record

Non Impediment (If never married)

Vaccination Card

Birth Cert.

They send him the following forms:

copy of approved i129F form

blank medical history form

i134 affidavit of support

When the embassy receives your file, is when Packet 3 is mailed.

Ok thank you. I made an error in that post. The embassy received our file 10/27. On 11/04 it shows "ready for interview"on tracking site. Hoping once the DS160 is submitted tomorrow we will get an interview appt letter

If you don't receive packet 3 in a timely manner, please email the embassy constantly to let them know and they can send it via email. Our packet 3 was sent out the end of August and we didn't receive the mail unti the second week of October. The mail also looked tampered with.
