After K-1 reached the embassy - is there a packet that I receive?

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Russia

I received the "We are please to inform you" on the 18th of November. I checked out the link (conditions outlined below). I am unclear on one thing. Do I wait for an envelope or do we just go ahead and schedule an interview once she pays the visa. It seems obvious but it seems to easy. Also when I check on the visa status on the embassy site and I enter the case number, it tells me "Your visa case is currently undergoing necessary administrative processing."(text below). I'm confused, do I wait for a packet or is it because I still need to do something?

Dear Petitioner:

Please resend this letter to your fiancé(e).

Dear Applicant:

We are pleased to inform you that the Immigrant Visa Unit of U.S. Embassy Moscow has received your approved visa petition and that your case is ready for processing.

You should now visit http://www.ustraveldocs.com/ru to complete the following steps: 1) arrange payment of the $265 visa fee; 2) enter an address to which the visa will be delivered; and 3) schedule your interview appointment. Once you pay the fee and specify the delivery address, you may schedule your interview for any available appointment slot. Please ensure that the date you select falls within four months of the date on which the visa petition was approved. Failure to do so may impact the validity of your visa petition.

All applicants for fiancé(e) visas must comply with the processing requirements detailed at http://moscow.usembassy.gov/iv-fiancee.html. This page provides the most accurate and complete information needed to prepare for your interview, including a list of required documents.

Please contact the Call Center at + 7 (495) 745 3388 (local) or 8 800 100 2554 (ITFN) or 1-(703)-745-5474 or via email (support-russia@ustraveldocs.com) if you have any problems accessing the appointment system.

Thank you.

Immigrant Visa Unit

U.S. Embassy Moscow

Your visa case is currently undergoing necessary administrative processing. This processing can take several weeks. Please follow any instructions provided by the Consular Officer at the time of your interview. If further information is needed, you will be contacted. If your visa application is approved, it will be processed and mailed or available within two business days. Under the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act, Immigrant Visas for "Diversity Visas" cannot be issued after September 30th of the year in which you were selected to apply for a Diversity Visa. For example, entrants into the Diversity Visa Program in Fall of 2011 were selected for Diversity Visa 2012 Program, and selectees MUST apply and receive their visa prior to September 30, 2012 otherwise they lose eligibility to receive a Diversity Immigrant Visa, regardless of additional administrative processing.In addition, please note that some immigrant visas may not be able to be issued if the annual numerical limit for that category has been reached.
